Full review

We’re just about to go, and after many years of visiting this and many other ski areas all over the world we are worried. Why? The bad reviews? The lack of snow? These add to the angst, but the main problem is the change in attitude. I booked the package with whistler.com as I have done half a dozen times. This time it was different. The deposit for the apartment was taken, as per usual. No problem, a few hundred bucks to reserve until December. Except the lifts were also charged up front - thats a new one. No way you can cancel. They were also double the last time we stayed. And the ski rental was charged on the day - months in advance - never heard of that anywhere. I’ve been shaken down before in my greener years, but this seems to be in a different league. My wife normally goes along with a guide, but this year I hear they cost more than Richard Gere, so that’s not an option. So I think this year we’ll hope the reviews are all wrong and it will be the good old Whistler we’ve always liked. To be continued ....
