The UBC Residence Hall Association has geared up for a 5th Annual Residence Whistler Shuttle to provide a safe, reliable and affordable option to head up to the beautiful mountains.

Whistler Blackcomb was one of the main sites of the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games, with plenty of winter activities to do including skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, bungee jumping, hiking, shopping, and walking around Whistler Village which has over 100 restaurants and retail stores!

Want some sweet discounts while visiting? We encourage you to buy a membership with UBC Ski&Board Club. They have been able to hook up UBC Students with discounts on food, retail, and more in both Vancouver and Whistler for years! These guys will also periodically give you more ways to head to Whistler and provide you with opportunities to visit more mountains across BC! The plus? You don't need to know how to ski or board to join their club; everyone is welcome!

FAQs

Q: Am I eligible to take the RHA shuttle?
A: To take the RHA Whistler Shuttle, you must hold a housing contract with UBC Student Housing (SHHS). However, plus ones are allowed, so even if you don't have a contract, as long as you sign up with a friend that does and load the bus with them, then you're good to go! But you will still need to sign a waiver with UBC SHHS and you NEED to be a UBC Student.

Q: Do I need to buy a Ski & Board Membership to take the shuttle?
A: No, as long as you are a resident of UBC Student Housing then you can take the shuttle! However, a UBC Ski & Board Membership will give you perks and discounts around Vancouver AND Whistler Village and you can get on the shuttle for a bit cheaper! To buy a membership, you can either go to their office on the 3rd floor of the Nest or catch them while they're boothing! They are $20 for 15 perks!

Q: Where does the shuttle leave from?
A: (Pictures will be shared)
POND/PV/MD — Bus bay beside Place Vanier on University Blvd.
OC/TP/TB — Bus bay in front of HMSM and QLXN Houses in Totem.
Fairview/Fraser — Parking Lot in front of Fairview.
Gage/Brock — On Walter Gage Rd. behind Commons Block/near Great Dane.

Q: What time does the shuttle leave?
A:
Leaves campus — Pick up route starts at POND/PV/MD stop at 6am. Each stop will consist of a 5-10 minute loading period. Therefore, the bus will likely leave for Whistler by 6:20am-6:30am
Leaves Whistler — 4pm
The trip is 2-3 hours depending on traffic and weather conditions.

Q: Do I need to sign a waiver?
A: Yes, a waiver needs to be signed with RHA / Housing before you can go on the Shuttle. This will likely be done on ShowPass when you buy your ticket.
If you are skiing, boarding, or tubing in Whistler, you may also need to sign a waiver for those, but Whistler will take care of those ones when you get there or when you buy your ticket online.

Q: What happens if I want to/need to cancel?
A: That's fine, but there will be no refunds. You also will not be able to send someone else in your place; we will be checking student IDs when you get on the bus.
