I'm looking to go to Whistler, most likely Wednesday the 17th, and am a little confused on transportation and the websites are not helping.
I DO NOT have tickets to any events, i just want to go for the day and experience the area and the excitement. All the websites talk about if u have ticket events or are staying up there, which i am neither.
Does anyone know how this works? Can i get a bus or train up there? where would i catch it? I'm staying in downtown vancouver. any help would be great :)
Also, if anyone wants to join me on my adventure that day, i would LOVE the company. its easier to figure these things out when there is more than just one of me!
OK, i think i got a little bit of information. it sounds like a round trip ticket to whistler for 1 day is at least $70, which i cannot afford :(
so that being said, if anyone has a permit up to whistler and wouldn't mind a tag along for the ride, i'd really love to get up there and see what's going on. let me know if you've got some room in your car :)
Lisa, you should check out the greyhound.ca site as the prices there aren't that bad considering all that is going on, I will be getting up to Whistler this way
wow! great tip! these tickets are a LOT cheaper. i love it!
thanks! and what day are you going up there? i think i'm going wednesday, see some barenaked ladies for free :) anyone else interested?
I will be heading up there today to catch some Alpine events =)
I have greyhound commuter tickets, I could offer you. Those are regular greyhound tickets I bought in a bigger amount and got a special price. You can use them on every bus to or from whistler/vancouver. They are valid 6 month, for every day a week.
Each ticket is 17 $ / one way. Pick up for the tickets is in whistler.
Text me if you are interested. 778.322.5551
i already purchased some greyhound tix round trip from vancouver to whistler for about the same price. but thank you!
Hey guys! Lisa I'm glad you had the same question as me! Thanks for the answers I needed.. I will be stayin in Vancouver from the 25th-28th and would like to make my way up to Whistler for atleast a day.. Are u still goin to be around!?
i leave for seattle tomorrow and fly home to florida from there on sunday, so sadly, i will not be able to join you for whistler. it is great though, enjoy it! i highly recommend you pack a lunch for the day because everything costs an arm and a leg up there. i had to buy mcdonalds (which i try to avoid) because it was the only thing in my price range. just a little tip!
if you're ever in florida, look me up :)
Hey! Thanks that helps.. I will definately keep that in mind.. Any other pointers or tips that might make the trip go a bit smoother? or atleast to and from Whistler..
I just took the Snowbus.com ride up today. Was smooth, easy and comfortable. Maybe a bit more expensive than Greyhound. They do have a nice deal for cheaper lift tickets (about as cheap as 7-11), and a great deal for ski/snowboard rental packages.
There have not been any lines on the lifts at all, I hear, and you can watch downhill if you have a liftticket.
You can also go to the Standby line, and see the awards ceremony for free, in the evening, before the last snowbus leaves.
