My favorite ski resort out of anything I have skiied. There are no problems at Whistler, great skiing and great nightlife. It can be crowded but the mountain is so big you can go to the blackcomb side which is never crowded or you can ski the symphony chair which is never crowded. Or you can always go in March when the snow is great and the crowds are small. The two best times to go are late winter or early winter, in genral before Cristmas or at about spring break.
