Season tickets and selling the remaining time left on them

by BmxBandit

I'm going to whistler on 3rd of jan for 5 weeks and the only way to be on the slopes for this period is to buy a season pass. I'm looking at getting the off-peak pass which means only being on the slopes during the week and not w/ends, however the pass will still be valid to the end of Apr and i was wondering if anyone knew about selling them on, is this possible? are there people who will buy this type of thing?

Thanks for any advice.

RE: Season tickets and selling the remaining time left on them

Hello, your season ticket will be in the form of a credit card sized plastic pass, it has your details and a photograph so they are not transferable. It may be worth considering an express card, you pay initialy for the card and so many days, after that, your bank is debited whenever you use the card. You get a small discount this way. Try to give the staff an idea how many times in the 5 weeks you will want to go, thet are all well trained and will give you the most cost efficient pass. The express card can also be set up so that you can pay for meals in the mountain resteraunts, saves you carrying cash around up the hill, they just scan the card and it gets debited straight from your bank account. Best of luck with your trip, go up whistler mountain and head for the Harmony chair, take the ridge run down and you can drop off into some amazing bowls, takes your breath away. Try to hook up with some locals, they will take you places that you would never find on your own. All the best, Tim.

That's great, cheers for that Tim. One small question, do u just buy the express card when you get there? i take it it is available from shops in the town?

Hi, you have to buy express card from the main ticket office at the base of Whistler mountain, look out for signs saying "guest relations", they have digital cameras set up so no need to have your own picture. Normal day passes can be bought from desks around the base of both mountains. If you happen to lose your express card, make sure you tell them straight away so it can be cancelled for a new one, it can be used in some shops to buy goods. If you live in Canada I think the pass is a little cheaper, you will need proof of address/residency. Check out the Crystal lounge, underground bar where many of the local workers/seasoners hang out, you will get all the advice you need in there. Have fun!

Travel Tips for Whistler

Callaghan Valley - Alexandre Falls

by Saagar

Up in the lower part of Callaghan Valley some miles south of Whistler is a major wilderness, but with open access. Near the Olympic site developments up here is the lovely Alexandre Falls. There is a small parking lot, a few vbenches and a fence preventing people from falling over the cliffs and into the gorge in pure amazement.

Take the gondola up the mountain during the summer

by Adrijana15

During the summer months, starting from $25 you can take the gondola up the mountain to do some alpine hiking and/or biking. It is wonderful! very scenic and if you're lucky the locals will take you on a tour to see the bears! Don't forget to bring some warm clothes-it gets chilly up their!!

Snow mobiling

by Chip_Master

Its another one of the heavily advertised activities. A good family break activity from skiing. I think the people doing this was Mountain Adventures.

Like all the advertised activities they pick you up from your hotel and take you for a 30' bus ride to the site. They provide gloves, boots, helmet and take you on the advertised length ride.

We paid extra for the opportunity for our boys to ride the mini snow mobile. This is an overpriced photo op. The kids get like two or three rounds on a fixed course. The snow mobile goes real slow ( or should I say too slow to be "fun") Not surprising giving the concern with law suites and things. I guess if you must have a picture of your child riding or he is clamoring to try they you gotta to it. But afterwards you'll be saying I paid what for that!

The overall guides were great as was the ride into the mountains. There was nothing special about the views nor the route. Just a snowmobile ride... but dollar for dollar okay except for the kids snowmobile thing.

Whistler

by Timmy23

"Whistler"

The Whistler ski area is vast, something for everyone, beginner and very advanced. Great place if you want to take a non skier/boarder with you, the village is adjacent to the hills and there is plenty to do, eating and shopping a plenty. The village is clean, pretty and the Clinic is very good if you are in the habbit of falling over badly.
Can get very busy, expect some line ups for the gondolas and busy green/family runs. Try to explore the rest of the mountain a little, ask the locals if you can identify them (normally boarding at mach 10) I have always found them to be really friendly and helpfull (unlike the French).
I always visit late November when the mountain opens, yes you take the risk of poor conditions, but the place is quieter, if you are lucky you will encounter some deep powder. (Set your bindings back far or eat snow)
Whistler has some of the best resteraunts I have ever been to, some are pricey, but Ive never been disappointed. For an economy meal to fill you up try the spaggetti factory or Tapleys. A must is the Mongolie grill, pick out what you want and then watch it cooked on a massive hot plate in front of you, you pay by weight of your chosen food.
Vancouver city is also well worth a visit if you can build a couple of days into your trip.

Australia, North

by Jyrki

Located about 90 minutes north of Vancouver on the treacherous and scenic sea to sky highway, Whistler is British Columbia's own World class ski resort. Thousands upon thousands of tourists and locals flock to the resort each day to tackle one or both of the snow-covered peaks, Whistler Mountain and Blackcomb Mountain. Whistler isn't just a sleepy town for powder junkies it also has a bustling nightlife and fantastic restaurants. Whistler seems to grow everyday and that growth will be accelerated as Vancouver prepares to host the 2010 winter Olympics!

"They come from miles around"

I have dubbed Whistler "Australia, North" because the place seems to attract Australians like flies to poop. When I went up in December of 2002 there was even a sign (painted Green and Gold of course) that read "Welcome to Australia". I even heard once that there are more Australians working in Whistler than there are Canadians...I'm not sure if this is true but walking around Whistler you might be inclined to believe this. You'll be sure to find someone with that charming Aussie accent be it at a restaurant, hotel, gas station and of course the slopes themselves!
