Default Boarding Whistler this weekend... Discount Tickets?

Hey all, myself and 5 others are flying from Arizona up to Seattle and driving up to Whistler for 3-4 days of boarding this Sat/Sun through Wednesday. I have been looking everywhere for discounted tickets to no avail. I couldn't make use of the Edge Card discount for Washington Residents as you needed to have proof of residence as well as be present at the ticket office before the deadline which ended late last month. I also tried to get some of the Ski Free "Buy 1 get 1 free" coupon vouchers but the blackout dates include the dates we will be there. I was wondering if there is anything I am missing? Does the resort give discounts to friends of season ticket holders? Do any employees at Whistler have any extra coupons to lend out? Let me know any info you have, you'll help these broke college students out with crazy lift ticket prices.

There is a 7-11 in the town of sequamish that sells them for 15 dollars cheaper. Here's an idea stop at Mt Baker on way to canada anyway and ski that mountain and its only 50 bucks and is a really sick place to ski or snowboard.

I think you get a 20% discount if your with someone with a seasons pass.

Good luck. We have a couple of friends, both of whom are physicians, and their comments after getting back from Whistler yesterday were, "Ouch that was expensive." The exchange rate is currently not in our favor, so it's going to feel real pricey regardless. Bring lots of money!

canada benefits more from the dollar being stronger since we go up there alot or used to. Canucks come down to WA for the stupid outlet malls and you know their canadian because they always have the CA flag somewhere on their clothing. Whistler is awesome but its way too expensive and I live 3.5 hour drive from there

No real discounts.

You can ride for free if you hike up to midstation on Whistler and get the gondy there. Its a real solid hike though.

I did what snowjab said, picking up tickets in Squamish. Not a huge discount, but it adds up and Squamish is on the way up anyway. Whistler sure is expensive (better now that I have an edge card) but at least it's huge and worth it. Park City cost me about the same and it seemed a lot smaller.
