Default planning a trip for new years to whistler - any suggestions?

I'm planning a trip to Whistler for New Years. Do you have any suggestions about anything related to a trip to Whistler? Ski Apres, nightlife or any other tips?

Try and stay in the lower village. You'll be closer to the good bars and nightlife. Merlin's is great for Ski Apres. Good prices. Lots of great bars for nightlife. Amazing mountain and a beautiful fun resort. You'll have an amazing time.

Thanks - I'll check out Merlin's. Where do the good looking chicks in their 20's hang out in Whistler?

I went to Aspen last year and it seemed like mainly families, old people and a few college kids - not a lot of chicks in their 20's although I did see a handful of good looking ones....

Whistler is party town. Yes there's lots of families too, but it won't be hard to find hot chicks. Just walk out your door. LOL

It really doesn't matter where you stay, as long as it's not Blueberry Hill or Creekside. There's free bus service throughout the entire village area, but the buses cost money once you get outside of the village. Merlin's is one of my favorite apre locations, their nachos are EPIC! GLC has pretty good apre as well and is right next to the Whistler Gondola. I usually steer clear of the clubs on weekends, it's mostly 19 year old dudes trying to hump anything that moves. I usually just stick to the bars along the village stroll.

FYI during a holiday, you'll want to make reservations for almost any time you're eating in the village. The place gets PACKED.

I LOVE Whistler, one of my favorite places on earth. I usually try to head up there at least 3 times a year.

i suggest you work on your patience by doing yoga and use your new found patience in lift lines. unless you are only going to try and pick up 'hot chicks' then in that case you don't have to.
