Travel Tips for Whistler

White Out!

by s_odyssey

For all those whom are not accustomed, "white out" is a term used to mean the exact opposite of a "black out"...Put simply, its when you can't see anything but white...Just hope that your friend is wearing a vibrant color if you're following.

Its definitely an experience, wait it out or take your chances and ski blind.

Nice, but not the best thing since sliced bad

by aqazi about Crab Shack

We'd heard about the crab shack from freinds in Vancouver so we expecting great things. The menu had lots of things to get excited about and we went for the oyesters for starters and then we all had our own entres. There are 11 oyesters on the menu but at the time we were there only 2 were available! They were good however. The entres were all fine but we could quite understand what our friends were ravign about. Perhaps we just didn't order the right things. Anyway there's nothing wrong with the crabshack, it serve fresh sea food and does that prtty well. It doesn't however raise the bar and didn't leave me feeling like I had to go back with any urgency.

Black Tusk

by GuthrieColin

On the summit of Whistler Mountain, reached by taking “the peak” chairlift, on a clear day one can look out into Garibaldi Provincial Park and see a peak which stands out in stark contrast to the surrounding ones. The mountain is referred to as the Black Tusk and is certainly understandable why.
The peak of the mountain at 2,319 m (7,608 ft) is a pinnacle of volcanic rock that is the remnant of a stratovolcano. The jagged peak can only be seen from Whistler’s summit on a clear day but it is a real treat when conditions are right.

Shop in the Whistler Village

by Albernfrau

There are lots of great shops to buy things from in Whistler Village. There are numerous snowboard/ski shops; chocolate shops; tourist stores; t-shirt shops as well as Gap, Roots, Eddie Bauer, etc. I thought everything would be expensive here but you can find bargains on the clearance racks that many stores have outside their front doors.

Whistler

by jujub

Whistler is probably on a lot of people's list of place to go to hit the wintery slopes. It was on my wish-list as well, and the only deterrent was the high cost. Until, that is, I stumbled upon a super cheap airfare to Vancouver from NY, round trip direct flight for under 300 bucks with all taxes included. How could I pass up an opportunity like this one? Never!!! ;)

Whistler is a 2-hour drive from Vancouver, through a scenic road named Sea to Sky Highway. The winter is very mild in the Vancouver area, don't be surprised if you spot some locals wearing t-shirts while you are huddled up with your winter jacket... Yeah, we stuck out like sore thumbs... ;)

Anyways, the snow was great at higher elevations, kind of heavy and wet at lower half, so just stick to the top. Beginners: learn at the top -- the snow is fluffier and more abundant, which makes falling less painful! You can always take the gondola to get back down!

Have your goggles handy -- we hit very bad fog at the top, and unless you dig some frosty eyelashes, goggles are the way to go!

Enjoy!~~
