Aprox 115km North of Vancouver in the South West of Canada near the boarder with the USA. The distance between Vancouver International Airport and Whistler is a short, two-hour drive along the scenic Sea to Sky Highway (Highway 99) , one of the most beautiful stretches of road in the area. By car from Vancouver International Airport: Proceed on the airport causeway over the Arthur Lang Bridge into Vancouver. Exit the bridge using Granville Street. Continue north on Granville into downtown Vancouver and over the Granville Street Bridge. Exit the Granville Street Bridge via the Seymour Street exit, a right lane off ramp. Continue on Seymour to Georgia Street ( 6 - 7 blocks), left on Georgia and then over the Lions Gate suspension bridge. At the far end, merge left for the West Vancouver exit. It circles around under the bridge onto Marine Drive. Stay in the right-hand lane, over a green bridge to the first stop light at Taylor Way. Turn right and head up the hill, you'll see Highway 1 before you. Merge to the left under the overpass, immediately turn left to access Highway 1. As you approach Horseshoe Bay, watch for the exit to Squamish and Whistler. You are now on Highway 99, the Sea to Sky Highway, which will take you all the way to Whistler Village. From Seattle/US Border From Seattle by car: The Canada - US border is about 100 miles (160 kilometers) from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. If you've been driving up from California, you'll be on Interstate 5. At the airport the highway splits, with I 5 going into Seattle proper and Highway 405 continuing north to Whistler. Take Highway 405, unless you are heading into Seattle. The 405 eventually rejoins Interstate 5, but not until you're safely away from Seattle. From there, you have another 80 miles (128 km's) to the border. Look for signs for the towns of Everett, then Bellingham, then Blaine is right at the border. By-pass Vancouver City As you approach the Canada-U.S. border, take Exit 275 (about a mile before the border), off Interstate 5 onto Pacific Highway. The Pacific Highway Border crossing is also known as the truck crossing. Once across the border it's called 176th Street or Highway 15. Follow Highway 15 approximately eight miles north to Highway 1, the Trans Canada Highway. Take Highway 1 westbound. Make no turns. You'll zoom through the north-eastern municipalities of Greater Vancouver, motoring across the Port Mann Bridge over the mighty Fraser and eventually the Iron Workers Memorial (Second Narrows) Bridge crossing Burrard Inlet. Watch for the exit for Squamish and Whistler. Whistler Village is about 90 minutes from this point.
