GETTING TO WHISTLER BY CAR

Driving to Whistler by car along the famed and aptly-named Sea-to-Sky Highway is one of the most breathtaking journeys you'll ever take. Towering snow-capped mountains, lush green rainforests and fast-flowing, turquoise rivers will be forever etched into your memory.

WINTER TIRES & CHAINS OCT. 1-MARCH 31

To ensure everyone's safety, the West Vancouver Police and Sea-to-Sky Traffic Services are working together to patrol the highway, administering random tire checks at the Alice Lake turn off. If stopped at a checkpoint, drivers who haven't installed winter tires or have tire chains will be turned back.

Winter tires that meet the standards required on the Sea-to-Sky Highway are identified by a snowflake on a mountain symbol next to the M&S symbol on the tire sidewall. An M&S designation means the tire is rated by the manufacturer for use in mud and snow.

Vehicles without designated winter tires must carry chains and will be required to put them on at the checkpoint.
