Resort Municipality of Whistler

A World Class Resort

The Resort Municipality of Whistler has been governing and managing Whistler for both residents and visitors for 40+ years.

The Cultural Connector provides a scenic pathway linking six of Whistler’s most significant cultural institutions. The route links the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre, the Whistler Public Library, Maury Young Arts Centre, Lost Lake PassivHaus, Whistler Museum and the Audain Art Museum.

From the First Nations communities that first explored the land, to the modern pioneers who helped to build Whistler, and the art that pays homage to the history of Whistler and British Columbia, the Cultural Connector guides visitors on a new Whistler journey.
