Whistler at any budget
How to live it up––or score some Olympic-size deals––at the West’s biggest ski resort
Splurge or save on a ski holiday
In 2010, Whistler’s spotlight was focused on one thing: Olympic gold. These days, the legacy of the Games lives on (recreational
skeleton, anyone?), but the resort, just two hours north of Vancouver, B.C., continues to shine with sparkly restaurants and
bars—including an über-chic, ice-cold vodka tasting room. But don’t start worrying that Whistler’s gone all Gstaad. While
no ski town of this caliber is cheap, this is Canada, so there’s a refreshingly down-to-earth vibe, with bargains to match.
Here’s where to splurge and save.*
