A Whistler Virgin ???

Now That I've got your Attention !!!

Yes, I am heading to Whistler for the first time, at the end of Jan 2011. Have sussed out as much as is possible with goggle & it sure look's like one big place!
I would be really pleased to ; A, Meet up with anyone else heading that way. B, Most gratefull for any tips / hints you can let me in on. C, where's the place to go for a decent fed / music / party (once skiing is done for the day.

They all rekon I am a pretty tame Aussie, give me a mug of Flat White in the day & a glass of red (or a few) at night, and everythings sweet!

Cheers
The Ice-Cutter

nice. I was at whistler last season.

-some of my fave runs: symphony bowl, peak to creek, cloud nine, jersey cream. also try to make it to blackcomb glacier
-when I hit whistler bowl, it was iced-over moguls, which makes it very tough to go down. though conditions change - that was just my experience

for after skiing - try buffalo bills for the party

Thanks for the info snowcat,
Am staying at the Hi-Hostel at cheakmess crossing (or something like that). I am familer with YHA's so thought I would go there.
I think Whistler creekside , is the closest, for lifts etc, I think about 7kays (I hope it's not going to be a pain in the arse getting to & fro the lifts etc from there).

Hi,

I heard that Whistler is a awesome to ski so i decided to go there with my kids end of february! they are so excited about it! it'll be their first time at the mountain!
we are newbies, so i wanted to know if they are good teachers there for adults and kids? because we will really need to take lessons!! otherwise we'll have our butt always in the snow!! lol
We are coming from England, so i was looking for some accommodation on http://hotel.twenga.co.uk/ and on http://www.whistlerblackcomb.com/hotels/index.htm (because i can't take my kids to hostels, it's not very convenient) but i haven't find such good deals! maybe some of you know some apartments which is in rent or something like that?

thanks for your help! i can't wait for the winter holidays!

Almost any resort or lodge will have experts on hand to teach the newbies how to fall properly. No one wants to be on the injured/disabled list while expecting to have fun
