Outside of Highway 99 (Sea to Sky Highway), there aren’t a lot of roads in this area. For those who want a break from the trails or some variety, here are our recommendations for some of the quieter roads for running in the Village and area neighborhoods. These are also good options for winter, as they’ll be plowed. The Whistler Valley Trail Map is a very helpful guide, as are these maps of Whistler Village and Whistler Neighborhoods.

Whistler Village: During quieter times, the ~1-2 km of roads and paths of this pedestrian-only village are festive and pretty. Lit at night!

Tapley’s Farm and Whistler Cay: Using Lorimer Rd. as an anchor, run on some of the residential side roads of this area on the east and west sides of the Whistler Golf Course.

Blackbomb Benchlands. Some roads off the Upper Village, passing by nice residential roads passing by some spectacular homes. Blackomb Way, Painted Cliff Rd. Note: No shoulder or sidewalk. Glacier Dr. is also a longer road if you want t steady climb (no sidewalk).

Whistler Creekside: Some decent, quieter roads for running in this area. London Ln. on the east side of HWY 99, and Lake Placid Rd. on the west side of HWY 99, just east of Alpha Lake, are decent options. Combine with Valley Trail along Alpha Lake (in summer). Alta Lake Rd. is a good, longer option (soft shoulder).
