Whistler Village Autumn

Any place where you can roll out of bed and have fresh coffee in hand within 5 minutes is alright by our books, and in Whistler Village you can go from hotel to ski lift to cafe to patio to shop in mere minutes, no car required. Walking the pedestrian-only Village Stroll can take just 15 minutes at a power walk, or hours – even days – if you take the time to explore all the neighbourhoods, sneaky side streets and the new Cultural Connector. Join host Magee Walker as she guides you through Whistler Village in a special 360 video, giving you the chance to check out the action and the gorgeous views for yourself.

360 Video Viewing Tips

Phone or Tablet (Recommended): Load the video on your mobile device and the motion sensors in your handset will let you move the phone and look around like you are actually there. Requires the You Tube App for the full 360 goodness – available to install for free for iOS and Android.

Desktop: Play the video, go to full screen and use the cursor to move around inside. Alternately, use the navigation circle in the top left corner of the film, or the arrow keys on your keyboard.

Virtual Reality Headset: If you so happen to have a viewer handy like Google Cardboard or Samsung Gear VR then throw your phone inside and marvel at the wonder.
