Whistler's Upper Village, A Peaceful Alternative

If you follow the Valley Trail between day lots 1 & 2, you will cross over a gorgeous bridge and Fitzsimmons Creek. Keep walking for another few minutes and you will find yourself in Whistler’s Upper Village. Most people do not realize how close the upper village is to the main village. Nor, do they realize that this quaint part of Whistler has everything that you could need for an epic Whistler holiday.
The upper village is where you will find the Blackcomb Gondola, the newest gondola to be a part of the Whistler Blackcomb lift system. Merlin’s bar is right at the base of the mountain and has fantastic après in the winter and a lovely big patio in the summer. There are multiple restaurants in the upper village and some fantastic shopping. You can even find a small village market and a liquor store.
In the summer, there is a farmers’ market with food trucks, fresh produce, and artisans. The fun-filled kid’s zone is also set up in the upper village with go-carts, mazes, a bungee trampoline, mini-golf, and more.
The Benchland’s free shuttle bus service runs frequently during peak season dates and times. This will take you directly to the main village or vice versa if you aren’t up for the walk.
Whistler’s Upper Village is such a great option if you want a quieter base, convenience, and we have some beautiful condos here to host your stay.
