Whistler is open for business!


Tourism Whistler is sending out the word that they're open for business, even with the closure of the Sea-to-Sky Highway due to a large rock slide earlier this week.

"Whistler is open for business," said Breton Murphy of Tourism Whistler. "We want to remind people that there are a variety of
alternative transportation options."

They include bus and car along Highway 99 north along Duffey Lake road, float planes and water taxis to Squamish from the Vancouver area.

Whistler's hotel and activity operators are being flexible with their booking, refund and cancellation policies.

It's BC Day long weekend coming up and the Canadian National BBQ Championships are still going ahead in Whistler August 2-3. A Taste of British Columbia, which features food and wine from across BC, is also still a go on August 3.
