ED­I­TOR’S NOTE

Whistler Traveller Magazine - - CONTENT - Jackie Rohde | Ed­i­tor-In-Chief | jackie@whistler­trav­eller.com

Wel­come to Whistler! As a world- class, year- round des­ti­na­tion re­sort, Whistler and its res­i­dent “Whist­lerites” are very proud to wel­come the world to our home ev­ery day. Whistler’s res­i­dents, whether full- or part- time, as well as the large vis­it­ing worker pop­u­la­tion, are made up of ev­ery na­tion­al­ity and eth­nic­ity. They also span a wide age range: from young adults trav­el­ling from abroad to work and travel; to fam­i­lies with young chil­dren who have cho­sen to live, work, play and raise their chil­dren here; to sec­ond home­own­ers who covet the Whistler life­style and plan to re­tire here; to long- time res­i­dents, many of whom have lived here for decades and couldn’t imag­ine liv­ing any­where else. Per­haps they only came here on va­ca­tion but were drawn back by a love for the out­doors, or a de­sire to es­cape the fast pace and stress of city life — the rea­sons are many and var­ied. Un­de­ni­ably, the spec­tac­u­lar moun­tain back­drop and ac­cess to na­ture is our foun­da­tion, but it is the peo­ple who live here plus those who have come be­fore us, and the tal­ents they have brought with them, that al­low that base to pros­per, mak­ing Whistler and the Sea to Sky cor­ri­dor the sought- af­ter des­ti­na­tion that it is. They have made it a com­mu­nity, rich in his­tory and di­verse in cul­ture, but fiercely proud and pro­tec­tive of the en­vi­ron­ment that sur­rounds us. While you are in Whistler, we en­cour­age you to “ask a lo­cal,” and let us help you make the most of your visit! With our home­town knowl­edge and “in­sid­ers’ tips,” you can ex­pe­ri­ence the very best that Whistler has to of­fer. This is­sue brings you many op­tions, invit­ing you to ex­plore the moun­tains, new ad­ven­tures, ex­cep­tional din­ing, arts and cul­ture, spas and shop­ping, and mu­sic and nightlife. We know, though, that you most likely won’t be able to fit it all into one visit, so pace your­self and save some ex­pe­ri­ences for when you re­turn … we are cer­tain you will! Thank you for shar­ing this is­sue with us. Happy ex­plor­ing. En­joy!
