Sea to Sky Real Estate Update

Do you know about our great Options for Non-Skiers in Whistler? 

Can you come to a ski resort and not ski or snowboard? Yes, you can! Whistler has plenty of options for non-skiers, or those non-skiing days. Must-dos include ziplining, snowmobiling, spa visits and cultural experiences.

While BC’s provincial health officials are currently recommending against all non-essential travel, we can’t wait to welcome you back to Whistler when it’s safe to travel again. We hope to see you soon!
