Whistler Welcomes Free Wi-Fi

Free Wi-Fi is coming to BC’s Whistler Village, thanks to a partnership between Tourism Whistler and the Resort Municipality of Whistler.

The project will be implemented in stages over a two-year period, with the first install now live at Whistler Olympic Plaza.

The addition of free Wi-Fi in key locations throughout Whistler Village is an important service to provide to guests, said Barrett Fisher, Tourism Whistler’s President & CEO.

“We hear time and time again, through our visitor surveys, that free Wi-Fi is not only a priority for our guests, but it’s really an expectation,” said Fisher, who notes that the new service is a win-win for all involved.

“Not only is the addition of free Wi-Fi good news for our guests, it also means that they’ll be able to share their Whistler photos and help to spread that positive word-of-mouth messaging that we know is so vital in today’s competitive landscape.”

Once the project is complete, there could be up to 30 Wi-Fi access points powering 10 hotspots in key gathering locations throughout Whistler Village, allowing visitors to connect to the Internet at no cost.

In 2018, the locations will include: Whistler Olympic Plaza, Whistler Conference Centre and Village Square.

In 2019, access points will be added at Mountain Square, Town Plaza, Village Common and Skiers’ Plaza.
