Toying with the idea of doing a season in Whistler next year. Any tips on how to find long term accommodation from expoerienced Whistler seasonnaires or locals? I don't wanna pay much more than 600 CAD per month...

hmmm, i have seen stuff everywhere for 1,000 CAD but that's pretty steep, even by European standards. is it really that expensive everywhere?

i was also toying with the idea of living off the mountain and commuting on a daily basis - how feasible is that?

how do you do it?

Depends on how far off mountain you are talking. Whistler has a public transit service (buses). I wouldn't live too far out (ie Squamish or worse yet Vancouver) unless you want to buy a car, then you may as well pay high rent and live close, so... oh and traffic can suck meaning you will miss first tracks

PS, I don't really know man, probably sack up and get in with some feral Australian brahs in a house with 10 others?

Whistler's an expensive segment of an expensive area. Trouble with Whistler in particular is that it has little or no "real" town -- it's like Disneyland. All hotels and restaurants and condos geared for the resort crowd. Made worse by all the blow-ins trying to find rent while they work at the mountain :p . Makes for an artificially high-priced market.

Donutz is right.

Assess the reasons for planning on going to Whis.

Some of the other resorts in BC may even suit better?

perhaps something else would suit better:

i'm looking for good access to good and varied off-piste riding without the use of cats, sleds or helis (good lift system if you like), good park/s, an open-minded or broad based local community, cheap accommodation :)

anything come to mind?
