By identifying and protection of special places on the mountains, Whistler Blackcomb encourages a respectful relationship between the experiences of our guests with the health of the mountain ecosystem. We will continue to move beyond mitigation to take a restorative role with our mountain ecosystems by improving our operating procedures and design of projects.


Facilitated by Whistler Blackcomb, a community based grassroots take action environmental group. Mission is to protect, restore, enhance fish and wildlife habitat in the community of Whistler. Part of our commitment to building partnerships in action for environmental sustainability. HIT's inception was in 1997 and since then 103 projects have been completed.

Over 200 volunteers participated in 2010 including guests to the resort-travellers philanthropy. The health of the natural environment is a core concern of Whistler locals and this program gives them hands on opportunity to get involved. It also provides an opportunity for Whistler Blackcomb to work shoulder to shoulder with the community.

Employee Environmental fund

The Whistler Blackcomb Foundation Employee Environmental Fund was created in 2001 to fund environmental projects in the sea to sky corridor (including Whistler, Squamish, and Pemberton). Our staff are invited to donate to the Fund from their pay cheques; each dollar is then matched by the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation.
