This is an interesting place. If you are looking for high quality service, and very clean rooms and facilities, this is not the place for you. There is rarely someone in the front office and I had to ask to have our bathroom cleaned, after being informed by my roommate that it had not been done for over two weeks. All of this set aside, the staff is very friendly and so are the guests. It has a very chill vibe and accommodates all the basic needs, a warm bed, electricity, hot water and of course, the internet. I would not recommend it to a friend but the experience wasn't completely horrible either.

... here. Peter was a bit put out, he would have loved to have gone skiing. He didn't realise the slopes here would still be operational, and he really didn't have the time to organise anything. We stayed in the olympic village is was built for the 2010 winter games. Very pretty little village and packed with young people skiing and mountain bike ...
Thursday - today we had a fantastic day.
Once again we had an early start and set the alarm for 6.15am. This holiday is certainly not about relaxing and sleeping in. There will be time for taking it easy when we get home.
We walked a couple of city blocks to catch the skytrain which took us to the Greyhound bus depot where we were catching the bus to Whistler for the day. We arrived at Whistler Township at 10am and knew we had to return on the bus to ...
... finished. We got our wifi use in for the night then found a dark spot to sleep for the night. Rumour has it, that the night before when we were sleeping in my van (with our snacks in the car with us and the windows open a touch), that there was a grizzly bear floating around the town. Wicked. Well we survived anyway and lucky for my new backup plan, bear spray. Once again, we passed out. This time it was 9pm at night. So tired. I don't think I have been to bed at 9pm since I got ...
... That didn't work so he rang someone else and rang me back. That didn't work so he tried something else. Finally after 4 phone calls back and forth we had action. He was so apologetic .... and then wished us well on our trip. Petrol full we headed off to Carmacks thinking we would stay overnight there, but when we got there it was just 1pm so we grabbed more fuel, and pulled over in a rest bay for lunch, then continued on our way. During our trip we passed a baby bear ...
What a wonderful way to finish off our holiday!
We hired some downhill bikes to try out the great terrain park they have here at Whistler. Dave and Mark came along with me as Alan was spending the day with his old friend Bruce and after getting kitted out on our $9000 Carbon Santa Cruz V10 bikes with helmets and guards of course we hit the chairlift.
We had to negate the first obstacle of learning how to put our bikes on the chairlift but that would prove to ...
