Driving directions

  • If you're driving into Whistler from the South (Squamish/Vancouver), turn right at the lights on to Village Gate Boulevard (the main entrance to Whistler Village).
  • Follow the signs to the day skier parking lots - this is the best place to park. Walk from the parking lots towards the Whistler Village Gondolas.
  • Ziptrek Ecotours is located inside the Carleton Lodge right across from the gondolas - and next to the very well known Longhorn Saloon. Check in for tours will be at the main level of the Cartleton Lodge.
  • In the summer months, Ziptrek is on the main floor inside "Garbanzo Bike & Bean". In the winter months, Ziptrek is located downstairs in the same building.
