Filming Locations in Whistler

Notice: there is a blackout for Movie, TV and related Special Filming Permits from January 1 - March 31, 2010. 

The Whistler Media House in Whistler, British Columbia, will be open February 1 - 28, 2010 to all qualified media personnel representing media organizations covering the 2010 Winter Games. The main focus of WMH is to provide a central resource facility for media who have not obtained an Olympic accreditation card from the International Olympic Committee (IOC) through the Vancouver Organizing Committee (VANOC) - referred to as unaccredited media.

For approved filming in Whistler Village, several locations available along a unique, pedestrian village including Village North and Upper Village, are the jurisdiction of the Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW). The area in front of the Village gondolas (Skiers Plaza) is the jurisdiction of Whistler Blackcomb. There are power outlets in Village Square, Town Plaza and Village Common. Vehicle access is limited.

Pedestrian malls cannot be closed to public access during production and storefront access should remain clear. The municipality asks productions to notify retailers and restaurants in the locations in which they wish to film.

If the location is in a Whistler subdivision, the municipality requires location managers to notify the residents in the affected areas.

The RMOW manages the Whistler Interpretive Forest, located 10 kilometers south of the village across from Function Junction. This 3,000-hectare demonstration forest is a favourite with many production companies, featuring forested trails, the Cheakamus River gorge and suspension bridge (foot and bicycle only), kayak put in/pull out, House Rock, numerous hiking, biking, and snowshoeing trails and vehicle access.

Production crews must notify the RMOW if you are filming on private property within the Resort Municipality of Whistler's municipal boundaries. Contact Christa Vandeberg, Supervisor, Village Animation at cvandeberg at whistler dot ca or 604-935-8417.

For requests to film on Whistler or Blackcomb mountains, please contact their public relations department at 604-932-3141. For requests to film on Crown land, please contact the Ministry of Agriculture and Lands, Crown Land Administration.
