Save: Things to do

Fresh Tracks (, the get-on-the-mountain-first breakfast ticket program, is just $18 with a $95 lift ticket—a heckuva lot cheaper than a helicopter ride. For that, you get a hearty breakfast at the Roundhouse Lodge and first crack at the slopes. Not an alpine skier? Tour 34 miles of cross-country trails at Whistler Olympic Park in Callaghan Valley ($22; 5 Callaghan Valley Rd.;, or sign up for a horse-drawn sleigh ride. Blackcomb Sleighrides ($54; is the only outfit that runs on Blackcomb.
