Whistler Discounts For Seniors

Where And How To Save On Hotels, Tickets And More

Whistler discounts abound for children visiting the resort. Free skiing (6 and under), free accommodation, free ski and snowboard rentals and even free meals in some restaurants. But they're not the only age group whose wallets get a break when they visit the resort.

Seniors can also enjoy discounts (sorry no freebies like the kids) on things like lift tickets, hotel accommodation and other resort activities.

Discounts On Whistler Hotels

Of the twenty-some-odd hotels at Whistler Blackcomb, nine of them offer special discounted rates to seniors. What constitutes a senior however, varies from place to place, as does the size of the discount offered.

For example, at the Crystal Lodge and the Delta, you must be 65 years of age or older to qualify for the Senior Rate. While at the Fairmont you qualify if you are 60 or older. And at the Coast Blackcomb Suites you need only be 55 years old.

The discounts themselves range from 10% to 15%. Let's have a look at where you can get the best deals.

Whistler Discounts On Ski Lift Tickets And Passes

Once you hit 65 years of age, you are eligible for the senior rates on Whistler lift tickets, passes and Edge Cards.

The savings on a one day lift ticket, as well as multi-day tickets is usually around 15%. Up to date Whistler ticket pricing can be found here.

Seniors can also save on ski lift tickets and rental packages purchased through local 7 Eleven stores in Vancouver and Squamish. A complete rundown on 7 Eleven Whistler discounts can be found here.

If you are a resident of either Canada or Washington State then you qualify to purchase a Whistler Blackcomb Edge Card. Seniors realize a savings of approximately 20% on Edge Cards. More details about Edge Cards and up to date pricing can be found here.

Seniors save even bigger on Whistler Season Passes. Depending on you age, you will save either 50% or 90% off of a regular Adult Season Pass price. You'll save 50% if you are between the ages of 65 and 74, and almost 90% if you are 75+. Details on season pass pricing can be found here.

Whistler Discounts On Zip Trekking And Tree Trekking

If taking the Peak to Peak Gondola across Fitzsimmons Creek is too tame for you, then you might want to try ziplining across sitting in a harness attached to an 1100 ft. steel cable. And if that sounds a little too exhilarating, you can always just opt for a more conservative walk through the treetops on a series of boardwalks.

Either way, seniors save $20 off the full price of these activities.

Whistler Tube Park Savings

If you are looking for a fun "off-day" or evening activity, head to the Whistler Tube Park, located on Blackcomb Mountain. We took our boys last school break on a day off from skiing and had a blast.

Seniors get a discount of between 15% to 18% depending on how long, and when you go. Get more information on Tube Park pricing here.

Transit Whistler Discounts

Taking the bus in Whistler is a great way to get around. I know that when we are in Whistler we almost never get into our van once it is parked. Jumping on the bus is much more convenient, and best of all, most of the routes are free.

But for the routes that are not free, seniors (65+) enjoy a 20% discount on fares.
