Tips from the community

As a Canadian, when I think of winter escapes, I think of Whistler. While its Blackcomb ski resort is one of the biggest in North America, the village in the heart of Whistler is a little pedestrian wonderland with all the luxuries. If you've got the money or know the right people you can have some fun nights here. If you're vagabonding on a budget head for the staff housing buildings. It won't take long to make friends with a multitude of fellow travelers from around the world who come to work at Whistler for the free lift pass. You'll have just as much fun with them and learn more tips about this special place.
