Whistler, B.C.

Arrival Experience & Wayfinding Master Plan

Passion and resourcefulness characterize the residents of this mountain resort community. Drawn into the spotlight when Whistler hosted the 2010 Winter Olympics, the picturesque village with abundant trails, parks and woods has been strategically developed and maintained for a growing tourist and residential population.

To make the most of natural and man-made resources, Whistler engaged MERJE and Brent Harley Associates to develop a Wayfinding Master Plan and Arrival Experience strategy that begins at the Vancouver Airport. The strategy includes a set of recommendations designed to guide visitors to the resort and easily access the amenities during their stay. Both digital wayfinding and physical signage will be used to effectively support the needs of first-time and frequent visitors. The municipality’s aim is to improve functionality of wayfinding infrastructure and contribute to the overall enjoyment of the resort.
