How do you fly into Whistler Mt. in real life?

Recommended Posts

I've been flying from Vancouver to (near) Whistler Mountain in two differant ways. There is a small lake with seaplane landing near by(CAE5) and also I've been flying into Pemberton (CYPS) which is close. The people that are going there from Vancouver by air (FOR REAL), what airport are they flying into? They, the 2 flights, are two of the most beautiful flights I've ever flown in 12 years of Flight Simulation. jerrycwo4Whistler Mountain is at approx: 50-07 N, 122-56W

The closest international airport is Vancouver (YVR) International located in Richmond, BC, about a 2.5 hour drive from Whistler (or longer if you hit traffic). You can travel to Whistler by helicopter or there is a municipal airport in Squamish, about 30-45 minutes from Whistler if you have your own small plane or fly into Pemberton, about 30 minutes from Whistler. Otherwise you can get to Whistler by car, bus, or by train.quoted from Yahoo.Mark.

I just flew into Whistler with my Kodiak seaplane and landed on Green Lake (CAE5). Of course it is probably frozen today, but with simulation anything is possible! If you have it, check out the area using Google Earth. There are some nice photos of the area around the lake. You might want to check out a copy of the latest Airways magazine with a nice article on "It's Plane Floating with West Coast Air." (March 2010). Also nice article on London City Airport.You are right! My flight from Nanaimo to Green Lake was spectacular! It is really challenging trying to make turns in the narrow valley. My GNS530 gave me plenty of terrain warnings! :( Happy flying!Airbus
