A Huge Thank You to our 2019 Annual Conference Sponsors Sustaining Sponsors Gold Sponsors Silver Sponsors Registration Bags Whistler is one of the top mountain 4-season destinations in North America. If you have already visited then you are familiar with its pedestrian village, restaurants, outdoor activities, bars and spas. If you have not visited then you need to see its beauty and participate in its culture and arts. Whistler is the home of the Coast Salish First Nations people. The Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre and Audain Art Museum are a tribute to their rich history and culture. The first commercial enterprise began in 1915 with the Rainbow Lodge offering wilderness experiences in hiking and fishing. Whistler was named after the whistling calls of the resident marmots. The Whistler ski resort officially opened in 1966. The first bid for an Olympic destination took place in 1968 by a group of Vancouver businessmen. Blackcomb opened in 1980 and both mountains merged in 2000. In 2010 Whistler hosted the Winter Games and in 2020 Whistler will host the annual CAPD/ACDP conference!
