Hiring a car for your trip to Whistler puts the very best of the area’s cross-country skiing, hiking trails and camping sites within easy reach. And if you’re bringing your own ski boots, snowboard and hiking gear, a Whistler hire car will make it much easier to get around independently.
Most importantly, car hire means you can road-trip your way to Whistler from the airport via the spectacular Sea to Sky Highway, otherwise known as Highway 99.
Panoramic ocean vistas and snow-capped mountains surround Highway 99, and with your own hire car you can tackle the route at your own pace. Must-sees along the route include Garibaldi Provincial Park, where cross country ski trails double as routes for wildlife-rich hikes in the summer.
If you’re taking a rental car to Whistler in winter, you’ll need to be prepared for snow. Your car hire provider should be able to kit you out with snow chains or snow tires, and it’s worth considering a larger or more powerful vehicle to help you tackle the mountain roads.
Hiring a car in Whistler allows you to explore beyond the village centre. A 20-minute drive south takes you to the café and gallery-lined streets of Whistler’s most charming neighbourhood, Function Junction. Alternatively, use your rental car to reach Lost Lake, whose lit trails allow you to explore into the evening on snowshoes or cross-country skis.
