Whistler (Artist’s Rendering)

In 1960 a group of Vancouver businessmen formed the Garibaldi Olympic Development Association and began the long process of cultivating the remote mountain range we now know as Whistler Blackcomb. With minimal road access, no sewage or hydro and no lifts or lodges, Whistler was a far cry from the world class skiing resort it is now. This artist’s rendition, dated 1960, of what Whistler could someday be was instrumental in inspiring support for development of the area.
