    Rogers' Chocolates of Victoria BC: Uber Chocolat Shop

    by Roadquill Written Jan 23, 2011

    The chocolates at Rogers' were excellent. A little on the pricey side but not bad. The rum cream and the ginger were excellent. There is quite a selection so you need to allocate enough time to choose wisely.

    Cheap skiing in BC

    by aqazi Written Oct 25, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I've tried to figure out how to whistler on a budget for a while now and every year it gets a bit cheaper. Buy your gear used or in the sales. Before you get here check out the Vancouver craiglist. After around 10 days or boarding/skiing you'd have paid off most of the gear you bought if it was new, probably half that if it was used. There are lots of asian students with too much money that usually ofload barely used equipment for cheap at the end of the season. Next thing is to get yourself an edge card as it allows you to top it up. This will mean you just buy life passes at the lowest rates for exactly the number of days you'll be boarding. In March you won't need really expensive snow gear as it pretty warm.

    The Grocery Store: The Grocery Store

    This shop is pretty much the only grocery store in the area and caters to the tastes of visiting travellers (HAS VEGEMITE!!!!) but it is seriously expensive. If at all possible, try to buy your groceries somewhere before you get to Whistler, it will be much cheaper.

    Mounted Police Trading Post: ROYAL CANADIAN MOUNTED POLICE STORE!!

    by jhorsfield30 Written Oct 22, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I always wanted to know more about the RCMP since watching reruns of due south on ITV in UK.
    Well, this store is stocked to the bring with official merchandise from the RCMP. And has viseos running during busy times to entice people to stay in the shop and spend more money.
    I was particulary interested in the full size model wearing a uniform and the local biscuits.

    What to buy: everything from jackets and genuine leather products to stuffed animals and books telling the storied history of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

    What to pay: Above Average
