My Money Saving Tips

My biggest money saving tips Take your own lunch up top. We take Mr. Noodles or something similar up the slopes. There is free boiling water at the top of both mountains. We then bring crackers, cheese, fruit for a great lunch. It is also quick to do in the morning.

The Drive to Whistler

My safety tips for drivers new to Hwy 99 Try to get up to Whistler before it gets dark. It is easier to drive in the daylight.

 About Us

Doug and I live in Burnaby, which is a suburb of Vancouver. We have a 30 year old son, Travis. We are all avid skiers and have had lots of family fun over the years. We have been skiing in Whistler since the early 70's and have seen many changes over the years. We also spend a lot of time at our home away from home in the summer bike riding, swimming, rollerblading (Travis) and golfing. I hope you enjoy our condo as much as we have over the years. Have a great holiday.
