TRAVELLER I EDITOR’S NOTE
Jackie Rohde | Editor-In-Chief | firstname.lastname@example.org
Welcome to Whistler!
As a world-class, year-round destination resort, Whistler and its
resident “Whistlerites” are very proud to welcome the world to our
home every day.
Whistler’s residents, whether full- or part-time, as well as the
large visiting worker population, are made up of every nationality
and ethnicity. They also span a wide age range: from young adults
travelling from abroad to work and travel; to families with young
children who have chosen to live, work, play and raise their children
here; to second homeowners who covet the Whistler lifestyle and
plan to retire here; to long-time residents, many of whom have lived
here for decades and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. Perhaps
they only came here on vacation but were drawn back by a love for
the outdoors, or a desire to escape the fast pace and stress of city life
— the reasons are many and varied.
Undeniably, the spectacular mountain backdrop and access to nature
is our foundation, but it is the people who live here plus those who
have come before us, and the talents they have brought with them,
that allow that base to prosper, making Whistler and the Sea to Sky
corridor the sought-after destination that it is. They have made it a
community, rich in history and diverse in culture, but fiercely proud
and protective of the environment that surrounds us.
While you are in Whistler, we encourage you to “ask a local,” and
let us help you make the most of your visit! With our hometown
knowledge and “insiders’ tips,” you can experience the very best that
Whistler has to offer. This issue brings you many options, inviting
you to explore the mountains, new adventures, exceptional dining,
arts and culture, spas and shopping, and music and nightlife.
We know, though, that you most likely won’t be able to fit it all into
one visit, so pace yourself and save some experiences for when you
return … we are certain you will!
Thank you for sharing this issue with us. Happy exploring.
