Guide to Becoming a Whistlerite

Welcome to Whistler! Your plane has landed, you’ve made your way North on Highway 99, the snow has begun to fall, and you’re ready to shred this winter season. Now what?

Let us begin by saying that there is more to Whistler’s culture than pow turns and finding that perfect line; although those things do exist and they’re epic. Whistler is about making new friends, enjoying the mountain lifestyle, and falling in love with nature. Follow our guide to #BecomingAWhistlerite and you’ll be blending-in in no time.

TIP #1

If you’re single, get ready to mingle – The fish pond is more like an ocean in Whistler so dive in and start casting your net. The best part about dating in a ski town is that you’re likely to find someone who shares the same passions and hobbies as you do. Plus, there’s way more to do here than just “Netflix and chill”. And if you’re wondering where to start, Three Below is the perfect spot to meet that special someone… Just sayin’.

TIP #2


Save your paycheck for the weekend – We get it, living in North America’s #1 Ski Resort can be costly. That’s why we aim to make our menu affordable for everyone with daily and weekly food and drink specials. That way you can work hard to play harder.

TIP #3


Family celebrations, Whistler style – It’s normal to get a little homesick around birthdays and the holidays. Luckily, you’re likely to make a bunch of new friends while living in Whistler. So instead of spending those special days curled up on the couch, come celebrate with your “Whistler fam” at Three Below. We’re open 365 days a year. Bonus, if you haven’t found your new family yet, you’re sure to meet them here.

TIP #4

Leave no trace. Choose to pack it out. – Whistlerites are united by their passion for the outdoors and if you haven’t figured out why, you’ll soon find out. Words of wisdom: don’t be a Jerry! When you’re exploring the backcountry (or cruising in the village), choose to pack your garbage out with you. Let’s keep this beautiful home of ours clean and sparkly.

TIP #5


Eat. Ski. Drink. – True Whistlerites LIVE for winter. And as the snow starts to fall in Whistler, the winter season (a.k.a. après season) stoke begins. While you start getting fired up about shredding those wintery slopes, it might not be a bad idea to start contemplating your après spot for the year. But you don’t have to think too hard on it because we’ve got you sorted. Come into Three Below during the months of October and November and we’ll hook you up with a Locals Card – your ticket to après deals all winter long.
