Vancouver to Whistler Train

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all
Been talking to some old ski friends who recount a trip from Vancouver to whistler by train. Very nice trip but a little slow apparently.
Has anyone taken this trip recently? Does the train still run?
Would like to give it a go when i next visit whistler

As far as I know that train has been discontinued. I'm sure I'll be corrected if I'm wrong, but I don't think I am. I've not heard anything about it for a long time, and I'm sure I would hear about it if it was still running. It would be a really convenient thing for folks who live where I do.

Last I read, the train only runs in the summer now.

I've heard that they're considering offering service next winter too, if they think it can be feasible.
It's really more of a sightseeing excursion rather than a means to get there quickly, since it takes about 3 hours by rail, as opposed to 1 1/2 by car.
Evidently, when BC rail had passenger service back in the 80s, I remember buying a round-trip rail pass with a lift ticket included for a paltry $45!
