start here:

Knee Deep Productions presents Whistler Guide Books

reading the advanced book will have you plenty stoked for the trip

the glacier is accessible, doesn't have crevasses and you don't need a guide

you can buy first tracks lift ticket add ons that get you up on the hill early where you have breakfast and get first shot at either fresh snow or purely groomed corduroy if no snow the night before

it's a busy place so it gets tracked out fast is the only thing

blackcomb is a little less optimized for boarding but both are great and with the peak to peak you can pop back and forth easily

do a search too, there are a lot of threads on this
