Whistler, Sea to Sky
December is Counter Attack Impaired Driving month in BC
Throughout December, Whistler RCMP will be conducting Counter Attack road checks throughout the area. Although Whistler and Pemberton RCMP members are out conducting traffic enforcement and keeping local roads safe on a daily basis, they will be revving it up in December as the provincial Counter Attack impaired driving campaign runs from December 1st to December 31st
According to provincial statistics, an average of 65 people die each year in collisions where alcohol, drugs or medication is involved (5 year average from 2016 to 2020), making impaired driving fatalities one of the leading causes of death on our provincial roadways. Impaired driving, defined as driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, is entirely preventable yet it continues to happen with devastating consequences. Police will be using every resource at their disposal to remove impaired drivers from the road including the use of Standardized Field Sobriety Testing and specially trained Drug Recognition Experts. Police are also fully prepared to enforce the federal Cannabis Act and BC’s Cannabis Control and Licensing Act.
2021-5824 – Theft of Snowboard
On December 6th, at approximately 9:00 AM, RCMP responded to a theft of snowboard report. The complaint had left their 2021 Jones Ultra Mind Expander snowboard in the ski racks at the top of the mountain.
2021-5858 – Theft of Skis
On December 8th, at approximately 4:00 PM, the RCMP responded to a theft of skies report. Police learnt that the complainant’s skis were stolen on November 28th at approximately 11:00 PM when they were left outside in the 4500 block of Blackcomb Way. RCMP reviewed CCTV footage and are attempting to identify the suspect.
Cpl Miller would like to remind the public to try and keep your skis or snowboards in view when you’re leaving your equipment unattended. Purchasing a small $20-dollar cable lock is inexpensive, easy to carry, and works well to deter theft.
2021-5949 – Theft from Motor Vehicle

RCMP learnt that the vehicle was broken into between December 12th 9:00AM and 5:30 PM. Two laptops, and an I-pad were stolen from the vehicle for an approximately value of $3,500.
The Whistler RCMP are requesting that anyone with information pertaining to any of these incidents to please call the Whistler RCMP non emergency line at 604 932-3044 or Crimestoppers.
