I went to whistler for a half a dozen or so 2-3 night trips and I ALWAYS had a blast. Great weather and snow, eating at Hys and he Rim Rock, staying at my favorite hotel and always seem to meet groups of single girls.

I dont get all the fuss. Its rated in the top 10 resorts in the world for a reason, and I find that reason every time I go there.

You sound like someone that works for Whistler trying to promote the joint. You keep going buddy and I'm sure in your imaginary world you will meet these groups of single ladies.

I had my snowboard honeymoon at Banff and it was awesome.
Stayed at Fairmont Banff, and because it was our honeymoon, they went the extra mile to satisfy us, even updraged our room for free.

Other than the people that worked on the mountain (lots of Ausie's) just about every person I asked for directions to a trail gave me a snide response.

To top it all off the Hotel we were staying in the Fairmont Chateau Whistler stuck my wife and I in a shitty room with 2 queen beds. I told the asshole receptionist that this was our honeymoon and asked him to please give us a King size bed he told me that wasn't happening and to deal with the room we got. Assholes. You know what fuck Whistler/Blackcomb!!! The more I think about this trip the angrier I get.

If I could take back this honeymoon and go to a tropical resort instead I would do it in a heartbeat.

Our neighbours are getting married at the Fairmont this December and we're going for a few days in the middle of the week. Should be a blast snowboarding all around a wedding party! Heading to Lake Louise every day as that's one of the resorts covered on our pass.

You live Brooklin NY...i live in Vancouver BC. You sound like someone who never goes to Whistler that speaks out his ass...as apposed to me who has spent roughly 10-15 nights a year in the winter and 10-15 nights a year in the summer up there every year since the early 90s.

You want to see groups of single girls?...go to whistler in the summer. Its one stagget after another. I was there just last week and they had "wonderlust" which was a world wide Yoga convention. Yea...its easy to meet groups of single girls.

I dont work for there, and to be honest the less people who go the better in my opinion...so I take back everything I said. The boarding sucks, golf is terrible, food is cafeteria grade and its 90% gay men. Dont go you'll hate it.
