That's awesome. We are bargain hunters so we're at Blackcomb Lodge and it has a kitchen as well. $108 per night per person for 7 nights and 6 days of riding. We used our travel rewards points to purchase the airfare. The slope side condos were more expensive and rentals by home owners were not cheaper when you factor in the edge card.

The map shows we are about a 5 min walk from the lifts but we don't want to waste time heading back to the rooms for lunch. I was hoping for public microwave so we can at least have a quick hot lunch. No biggie if there isn't.

I don't know about the hot water dispensers, but there's definitely microwaves available for use on the mountain.

I cant remember exactly which company I went through..but here is one I found

Grocery Delivery in Whistler Resort by Creekside Market - Whistler Grocery Store - Deliver Groceries To Your Accommodation Rental

They leave a reciept so you know what everything costed..we split it 5 ways and it was perfect.. food/booze lasted us 5 days for around 60$ per person
Speaking of BC's major export goods, whats the deal with that. Something easy to obtain?

Yea pretty easy. Not as easy as some other spots in CO, but not bad. In Breck I just asked the bartender.

We read somewhere or someone told us that out front of the main grocery store in town was the best bet. I cant remember how we came to that conclusion. I think Online threads like these.

Might sound politically incorrect haha but we waited for about 15 min till someone that looked legit showed up. And sure enough and white guy with dreads and a back pack shows up. He made a call and we were good to go for the rest of our trip. End of story.
