Adventure Differently – Summer 2020

Our community has been working closely over the past months to ensure Whistler’s return to tourism is managed thoughtfully and responsibly, with enhanced safety protocols in place. Now BC has entered Phase 3 of the BC restart plan, Whistler is certainly ready to welcome visitors.

 Let’s interact considerately, Let’s play simply, Let’s explore responsibly, Let’s enjoy patiently!

Whistler Blackcomb has started spinning their gondolas on June 29th for mountain biking and sightseeing. The Whistler Village Gondola, PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola and Blackcomb Gondola will be operating to bring sightseers and hikers up the mountains. To do this you’ll need to purchase a PEAK 2 PEAK 360 Experience Ticket, which gives you access to all the gondolas. Our recommendation is to do this in advance online to reduce contact and save time.

At this time hikers and sightseers are being directed to upload via the Blackcomb Gondola in the Upper Village and bikers in the Whistler Village Gondola to help ease possible congestion points at the base of the mountains.

The Peak Chair, which accesses the highest part of Whistler Mountain where the Cloudraker Skybridge and snow walls are located, will not be open this summer. Some higher alpine hiking trails are still under snow (which is typical for this time of year), but will hopefully open later this summer.

Whistler Farmers Market

The first Whistler Farmers Market of the summer has taken place, restarting July 5th at a new location,  The Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre parking lot and bus loop. You can find fresh local produce, tasty food and artisan goods. Some of the local vendors include: Laughing Crow Organics, Maple Sugar Shack, Plenty Wild Farms, The Garden Shed, Whistler Wood Fire Pizza Company and many more.

Whistler Business Update

Few more local businesses have recently opened up their doors to guests and visitors such as Scandinave Spa Whistler, The Adventure Group with popular Vallea Lumina experience, or Cross Country Connections. Whistler is certainly getting busier and we can see more visitors who are hoping to “Adventure Differently” this summer. For the full list of local businesses open hour and their practices, please click here.

Whistler Local Businesses opening, as we transition to Phase 2 of The BC Restart Plan – May 22, 2020

As we enter Phase 2 of the BC Restart Plan, we can see our local community showing signs coming back to life! However, even as our local businesses and parks start to reopen with their new safety measures, the travel advisory for non-essential travel is still applicable.

Many BC parks and recreational sites have re-opened for day-use, and overnight camping resume June 1st. Note, some provincial parks that typically attract large crowds, or whose opening could pose a potential health risk to nearby communities, will remain closed until further notice.

With the opening of Whistler’s parks and trails, the Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) is encouraging residents to get outside and exercise – as well as make smart choices about physical distancing, staying safe and staying local. Almost all of Whistler’s off-road recreational trails are snow-free and open for public use.

Whistler Bike Park, originally scheduled to open May 15th has been delayed. The team is working hard at to reopen to the public, while ensuring their staff and community stay safe. This is the same for their sightseeing activities.

Some of Whistler’s restaurants and cafes have opened for dine in options, with new restrictions. These include Hunter Gather, Earls Restaurant, Cranked Coffee, Caramba Restaurant and Pizzeria Antico! Other establishments are hoping to open up in the coming weeks. To see an updated list of who is opening up for business, click here

Along with many other local businesses open for pick up or delivery, the usual quality and variety is still present in our amazing resort town. Whistler community is very strong and has really come together to support local businesses.

Many activity providers have also started to welcome sport enthusiasts through their doors. Canadian Wilderness Adventures, Whistler Golf Club and driving range, Whistler Photo Safaris, Canadian Outback Rafting, Nicolas North Golf Club and Whistler Creek Athletic Club are now open for reservations.

Feel free to contact us for the most recent Whistler updates.

Aloha Whistler COVID Policies and Practices

30 Hours between guests. After a guest leaves a home, we are waiting 24 hours prior to our housekeeping teams entering. Rest assured, they are taking the necessary procedures to clean your vacation home. 

Mountain views, forest trails and Lakeside Meadows…. all more desirable than ever following a time when travel and outdoor pleasures have been restricted. However, here at Aloha Whistler, we know guests will also be seeking reassurance that the inside of their holiday home will be just as enticing and welcoming as the outside environment here.

In this time of heightened hygiene awareness we want you to come and holiday with confidence, so our professional and experienced teams are working extra hard to keep both our guests and employees safe.

We have outlined below some of the measures we have put in place:

  • We are following all guidelines given by Worksafe BC as well as for the accommodations sector.
  • There will be a minimum of 30 hours between each stay and we will not be offering any back to back bookings at this time. This gives us time to safely and efficiently sanitise and clean our homes between each guest.
  • We will be doing additional sanitation of high touch areas, including door handles, light switches and hard surfaces.
  • Homes will also be thoroughly aired out between stays.
  • All linens and towels are professionally laundered at a high temperature offsite.
  • We inspect each home before each arrival, and will continue to do so.

We will still offer 24 hour assistance and will remain committed to providing our usual high standard of service and support. We will respect social distancing and are already well equipped to offer our services remotely. Whilst we would love to meet you on arrival in the resort, and during your stay, we will mostly only communicate by phone and email.

We are aware from time to time guests require additional items. Don’t worry, we will operate a system where we can do doorstep drop-offs – so whilst you may not see us, we will still be looking after you just as much as ever.

Should there be any maintenance issues whilst a property is occupied, these will be safely attended to whilst you are out enjoying the resort.

It is our intention to make sure there is minimal impact on your Aloha holiday experience during this time.

While we may not be able to see you, our quality of service will still be there.

For more information on the guidelines we are following, Click here.

Contact us with any questions you have, we shall be happy to assist!
