Drink Like a Local

Did you know that Whistler has some of the highest quality drinking water in the world? The snowcaps you’ll see out your window melt into the lakes and streams that provide our drinking water – so fresh and pure it requires minimal treatment. We encourage guests to drink our amazing water right out of the tap – and keep plastic bottles out of our landfills and oceans. We also provide filtered water bottle refill stations on each floor.
