TO AVOID FEELING “HANGRY”: Before you meet us in the mountains, you’ll want to stock up on food items of your favorite variety. We do have grab-and-go bites at our True North Cafe along with delicious coffee, however, most accommodations at and around the resort have a kitchen to store food. So bring those treats that make you feel your best such as trail mix, fruit, veggies, and those snack bars you love.
What To Bring
Yoga Mat & Props: Don’t forget!
Photo ID: We probably don’t need to remind you.
Reusable Water Bottle: Around the clock yoga and dancing in the sun means water is a must and you can refill on site at one of our Camelbak water stations.

Phone Charger: We want to see your best yoga pose on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook!
Layers: The mountain climate means chillier nights and possible precipitation.

From the U.S. Border: Seattle to Vancouver
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) to the border. Look for signs for the towns of Everett, then Bellingham, then Blaine is right at the border.
From the U.S. Border: The Scenic Route Coming from the U.S., the entry point is the Douglas Border Crossing which features the Peace Arch. Once in Canada, the highway becomes Highway 99. Follow Highway 99 through the Massey Tunnel and proceed straight to enter Vancouver via the Oak Street Bridge, about 20 miles (32 km) from the border. Once on the bridge stay in the right lane and watch for the Granville Street exit (right off the bridge). Follow Granville Street to downtown Vancouver via the Granville Street Bridge. Once on this bridge, take the Seymour Street exit and proceed along Seymour to Georgia Street (6 to 7 blocks), turn left. Georgia takes you west through downtown and directly over Lions Gate Bridge to North Vancouver. As you approach the far side of Lions Gate Bridge look for the West Vancouver exit. It’s a gradual merge left at the end of the bridge. The exit circles around under the bridge onto Marine Drive.

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.
Directions by Bus
The Sea to Sky Highway is one of the most beautiful drives on the planet, so why not enjoy the view and leave the driving to Pacific Coachlines? Pacific Coach Lines offers options from both Downtown Vancouver as well as the Vancouver International Airport (YVR).
Take the train and discover the dramatic beauty of the mountains and ocean from a unique perspective. The Amtrak Cascades train provides service from Seattle or Oregon to Vancouver, with the final leg to Whistler completed by bus. Amtrak Cascades trains feature a special technology that uses gravity to tilt through curves, ensuring the smoothest ride possible. They are built for speed and comfort, travelling at top speed of 79 mph (127 km/hour).
During the summer months, the Rocky Mountaineer Sea to Sky Climb train offers scenic service between Vancouver and Whistler. During your three and a half hour train trip you’ll travel through the scenic Howe Sound, the Cheakamus Canyon and past the snow-capped peaks of the Tantalus Mountains.
More commercial airlines than ever are flying into Vancouver International Airport every day, with express airport shuttles departing frequently and delivering you right to Whistler. If you prefer to fly into Whistler from the airport, helicopters and floatplanes provide direct service to the resort (weather dependent). You may also choose to rent a car or hire a chartered vehicle.
