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.
