I've been up to Whistler/Blackomb probably something like 20 trips and never had a bad time. Not when it was icy, not when I sprained my wrist and got a concussion, not when we made the mistake of ducking a rope and getting stuck in a valley for 2hrs, not ever. Sucks that you didn't have a good time and overspent, but that is not the typical experience there.
