Air Travel:

The Vancouver International Airport (YVR) is served by more than 40 carriers operating 17 international and 22 U.S. scheduled flights, and a broad array of Canadian destinations. Who services YVR? Who doesn't? You can get there from anywhere, and that's exactly how it should be when a city hosts the Winter Olympic Games. Air Canada, Air Berlin, British Airways, China Airlines, Japan Airlines, KLM, Lufthansa, Alaska Airlines, American, Continental, Delta/Northwest, United, US Airways, you get the picture.

Another alternative is Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA), which is about 5 hours away. SEA is a major hub for both Alaska and Horizon, and counts United, Southwest, and Northwest among its top carriers. Visitors can rent a car for just the drives to and from Whistler/Blackcomb, taking advantage of the pedestrian-friendly village and consistent local bus service while there.

By Car:

The Sea-to-Sky Highway from Vancouver is the best bet for the quickest trip to [R493R, Whistler/Blackcomb]. The drive is just two hours.

Seattle is five hours south of Whistler/Blackcomb. Begin on I-5 to the Canadian border, using exit 275. From there, drive the Pacific Highway to Hwy-1 West to Horseshoe Bay. Look for 99 North (Sea-to-Sky Highway) and take it all the way to Canada's top ski resort.

Ground Transportation:

Whistler/Blackcomb is two hours due North from the Vancouver International Airport (YVR) along the breathtaking Sea-to-Sky Highway/99 North. Pass through Horseshoe Bay, Squamish and along the periphery of Garibaldi Provincial Park en route to Whistler/Blackcomb. Whistler Shuttle, the most frequent service to the resort, and Whistler SkyLynx Bus, the Official Provider of Scheduled Bus Service (www.ridebooker.com), are among the numerous services bringing visitors to the site of the alpine skiing events in February's 2010 Winter Olympics.

If travelling from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA), Star Limousine offers luxury SUVs, vans, and minibuses in addition to the standard stretch.

Another option for SEA to YVR travel is the combination of Quick Shuttle (quickcoach.com) and Pacific Coach Lines. Take a Quick Shuttle from SEA to YVR (or downtown Vancouver), then hook up with Pacific Coach Lines for the Sea-to-Sky Highway ride.

Getting Around:

This is best done by car or bus. Two wheelers, coaches, and cars are popular modes of transport in Whistler. However, most visitors prefer to hire a car to get around the village. The Fairmont Chateau Whistler operates a complimentary shuttle available to and from the hotel, in the upper village of Whistler, to the lower village. Whistler also has the reliable WAVE Transit System (busonline.ca) with routes throughout the village.
