Whistler is a resort town in the Canadian province of British Columbia. Snowy and secluded, Whistler is a popular getaway location for both Canadian citizens and tourists from around the world. According to legend, Whistler gets its name from hoary marmots. These large, squirrel-like creatures emit high-pitched whistling noises when threatened. Indeed, many hoary marmots still inhabit the area and have become something of mascots for the town of Whistler.
Whistler isn’t just famous for its adorable mascots – the city is also a major hub for winter sports. Skiers and snowboarders from all four corners of the Earth travel to Whistler each year. Whistler has also hosted a myriad of significant winter sports events, like various portions of the 2010 Winter Olympics. Christmas in Whistler is also an amazing experience in and of itself. Heck, Whistler’s even a great place to go mountain biking during the summer. Case in point, there’s never a bad time to visit this resort town.
With a population size of about 11,854, Whistler could best be described as a medium-sized town. However, more than two million travelers visit the resort town each year. As a result, Whistler can feel very vacant during some times of the year and very crowded at other times. The latter is especially true during the winter season when all of the major sporting events are happening. Visitors who are hoping to explore as much of Whistler as they can should use Bounce to store their things. We’re a luggage storage service that’s available each day of the week. To learn more about the services that we offer, and make your visit to Whistler hassle-free, download the Bounce app.

Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!
This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!
Can’t believe I haven’t used this service until now. So easy & convenient. I 100% recommend.
