Default Whistler trip - advice

Hello,

I'm from Belgium (West-Europe) and I like to plan a trip to Whistler March 2014.
Can somebody help me with this.
I'm looking for a good place to stay (not to far from the lifts) and some tips in general.

Thx already and I'm looking forward to make this trip.

It is not a big issue, don't worry about it. Now the world is a global village, just search for some good places to visit and to live. Ask your friends or the peoples living there.

An easy way to do this is to book through their website, they have extensive accommodation options, but it is almost too much information for someone who hasn't been there. Their telephone staff are really helpful.

If you want to be close to the lifts you will to stay either in

Whistler village (main village area, short walk to lifts, restaurants, shops and bars surround you)

Whistler Upper Village (up the hill on the left side, you ski out or have short walk to ski out where you ski down the hill to get on the lift in the am and at end of day you ski out by not going all the way to the bottom. Can walk to the main village or take shuttle bus)

Whistler Creekside (secondary village area, short walk to lifts, short bus ride to main village to access the main reastaurant/bars/shops)

You should state more details to get better advice here - do you need to be ski in/ski out our is a short walk ok? What about a shuttle bus, some areas are served by very frequent shuttles. Do you want to be right in the heart of the village which is fun but busy and loud, or do you want to be a bit removed from the action. Do you want a hotel room or an apartment with full kitchen. Low/medium/hi budget?

VRBO.COM (vacation rentals by owner) is a very good website for whistler rentals.

Be very careful about craigslist (I would not use it unless you know whistler well and even then there is risk), there are very believable fake ads, and if it seems to good to be true, e.g fabulous place for cheap rates it's usually a fake ad.

March is a great month to go, you will really like it.

Do a search for tips about whistler, lots of threads on here.

Yeah, you need to provide more info about the type of trip you want before youíll get much help.

Are you traveling alone? With friends? Family? Do you want to go as cheap as possible, or are you looking for a nice hotel?

Itís like visiting any popular vacation spot, there are lots of places to stay and things to do. Most is overpriced because itís a popular place, so pick your price point and go from there.

March is typically a pretty good month to get snow.

Definite troll or spammer. He posted this in the North East forum, seemingly responding to no one in particular.

Enjoy New York! Hire a good guide who will tell you about the most visiting places or search on the internet for some good places to live or visit in New York, best of luck.
Reminds me of some internet home workout advice I read years ago:

"No gym for home, work out floor with 30, but is it for 20 like 30 lb when you no lift it to be for men, for 30 lbs instead? or half is 10 for 20 pounds?

UMM HOW i word this... ok u take 20 lbs no lifting for 30lb if guy, so divide 2 u dont sit, u get 10 but for guy it no 30, so 20 would be for guy if u werent a girl ? "

Hey a lot of my best posts years ago on car forums were from weed! I look back at stuff I wrote then and wonder what happened to my English now...

HA! That's like some of the instructions on chinese/japanese made items. Something doesn't translate well with the english, and I think they just use google to translate!
