Looking for Housing

by AdrienneG

So I've been offered a job with Whistler Blackcomb for the ski season and it starts on Nov. 4 - problem is, I have nowhere to live. I really only have a couple days to get things sorted out and it's stressing me out a little.

I've looked into HOUSE and they won't be able to tell me if I can have a spot until after the 1st (and even so I'm not sure I'd want to share a tiny room with bunkbeds.

I've been living in Vancouver and have all the things to furnish an apartment but it's just a little too expensive to rent a place on my own. So if anyone has any tips on finding a room in a shared house or finds themselves in the same position and wants to go together to rent something, please let me know asap!

I'm 23, female, non-smoker, clean and would make a great roommate.

RE: Looking for Housing

by Carmanah

Take a look at Vancouver's Craigslist website: http://vancouver.craigslist.org

Up near the top there should be a section on finding a roommate, shared accommodation, etc. That's where I'd post your question - you'd be bound to find someone ASAP.

Good luck!

RE: RE: Looking for Housing

Carmanah's advice is excellent. Please know ahead of time though that the housing situation at Whistler for people in your situation is just dreadful. There are always news stories about how difficult it is to find decent housing. It's just sooooo expensive and there is such limited housing. I fear that by not sharing this information is how they "trap" people like you into getting up there and staying.

You may also want to consider staying in nearby Squamish.

Travel Tips for Whistler

Whistler Backcountry - Fissile Mountain

by pipercherokee

If you're a hardcore skiier/rider then you'll want to test out Whistler/Blackcomb's backcountry. To give you an idea of the geography concerning my particular trek: Singing Pass trail leads from Whistler village, between Whistler and Blackcomb mountains, all the way back to Overlord glacier, continuously climbing in elevation along the way. In the summer months this is a great way to get back there but it is definitely a trek and a half. In the winter, the hardcores start out from the top of Whistler's peak chair and traverse across Picolo, Flute and Oboe and continue towards the hut at the base of Fissile. Fissile is a jagged peak looming just to the right of Overlord Glacier and it can be seen all the way back from Whistler's in-bound terrain as jutting out by its lonesome into the sky. It takes a day to traverse all the way back there to the hut. One can overnight in the hut and then attempt the Fissile climb the following day. When I was 19, dumb and gung-ho I clambered up Fissile with no avalanche or safety equipment, trudging along in the footsteps created by wiser, older backcountry fellas that were using ice axes and crampons. It was definitely steep and I couldn't fathom looking down behind me. Nevertheless, in an hour and a half I had scaled Fissile and then proceeded to carve out 150+ turns in untouched, knee deep powder in the month of April - and it hadn't snowed in a month. This was the north face of Fissile (no sun!) and it was the most pristine experience of my life.

Just fyi, the picture here simply shows a very small section at the very base of Fissile mountain. We carved these turns upon arrival at the hut before the main trek to the top. 5 of us made it to the hut but only 2 of us attempted the Fissile climb. Not for the faint-hearted. Some great pics in the Fissile Trip travelogue!

Ski Whistler-Blackcomb

by scargo

Two trips now to Whistler-Blackcomb. Pre-Christmas trips, both times. 2003 was pretty good conditions. December 14-17, 2004 was not so good. The lower half was ice or mush and hard on skis. I found a few good runs up on top. I think I prefer Blackcomb, for pure, advanced, alpine skiing. But, I have yet to ski powder there in December. (:

LOCAL LIBRARY AND INTERNET RESOURCE

by jhorsfield30

When I visited it, I kept following the signs towards the library from the village and must have been around the same block 3 times. Then I realised, that the building site I was walking around was the LIBRARY! Ugh.. Anyway, the library even though under construction was excellent and offered a great range of services from friendly staff and I could use all the facilities easily and without hassle. I recommend it to anyone needing to interact with the local community or just write a email home..

Whistler's little library located between the main Village and Marketplace has the latest magazines and newspapers, free internet access, a children's section, and provides research assistance. They can also order in books from other libraries.

Whistler Library Hours of Operation
Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays 10 AM - 8 PM
Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays 10 AM - 5 PM
Wednesdays and Canadian public holidays closed.

Whistler Resort

by aukahkay

"From sea to sky"

The Sea to Sky Highway (highway 99) earns its name from the very scenic drive from the Burrard Inlet in Vancouver to the mountains of Whistler Resort. A mere 2-hour drive from downtown Vancouver, Whistler is a haven for outdoor activity in winter and in summer. I was there in October in between seasons so it was rather quiet. Nevertheless, the autumn foliage was in full bloom and the mountain air was cool and crisp. It is a perfect resort for families and couples alike.

Whistler for non-skiers/snowboarders.

As can be seen from my lack of tips...there's not much to do in Whistler if you don't ski. Hiking, shopping, partying, and golf are some possiblities though. Whistler will be hosting the 2010 Olympics - along with Vancouver - congrats! I can say that I visited Whistler before it got really famous.
