In September 2015, Whistler did $64 million in sales over the month, making it the busiest month since the global recession of 2008. There were 90 real estate transactions, the bulk of which were townhouse and chalets.
Nearby Pemberton and Squamish also recorded busy months, proving that the entire region has recovered from its former slump. For the third quarter as a whole, the ski town's market did $163 million in sales, which is about 7 percent higher than the third quarter last year and 18 percent up from 2014's second quarter.
Some credit Whistler's recent success to a delayed result of the 2010 Winter Olympics. Whatever the reason, the weak Canadian dollar should continue to entice American investors back to the resort.
