|RagJuice Crew||Happy days. Nice one folks, thanks for the help. We took the place in Creekside in the end. Departure day is getting closer and we're getting excited. New Year's Eve in Whistler and some of the best boarding on our doorstep - can't wait!|

What he said.
Creekside is like a second mini village with some shops and grocery store and some bars and restaurants, plus the bus ride to the village is really short if you need to go into town.
Also, Creekside has a gondola to get up Whistler mountain, so you won't be far from the lifts each morning and if you need to get to Blackcomb mountain you can just take the peak 2 peak across from Whistler.

|mitch19||Nah, it's not a problem. The bus ride is only like 5 mins away, most people that live here long term don't live IN the village cause it's to expensive. Pretty much everyone I know lives either Bayshores (which is past Creekside) or Alpine which is north of the village. Plus there are bars and shops in creekside too|

Cool, thanks. Was worried we'd be a bit too far out so we'd miss out on the social side of things (we're not going for that, and will be on a budget, bit it'd be nice to have the option at times!). From what I'm starting to realise, that won't be an issue - would I be right?
I guess we were thinking of it in terms of, say, a lot of European resorts (where if you are a bus ride away you are missing out completely) rather than a full town.

|mitch19||yeah Creekside is fine, I've lived in Marketplace in the village, Two places in nordic and now in a place in Bayshores. Even though Bayshores is a bit further away I found it better then Nordic, Creekside will be awesome but you will need a bus pass still most likely so budget another $65 a month for that|

|mitch19||Check the Pique online and you can normally find some short term accommodation for a month or two. Alternatively just look for a share house (I'm in one at the moment) pretty simple you pay 1 months rent at a time which will normally include internet, cable, heating etc etc you get your room and a spot in the fridge.|

Guessing you are not working? Might I suggest doing all the resorts in BC and some in Alberta? Two months would get you some good times at all of the good ones/
Just a thought.
