I guess we're planning a ski trip and looks like it's going to be there.

We've only been to Breckenridge ,Co a couple times, so how does it compare?

It's beautiful and very expensive.

If you like to party, go to the Garibaldi Lift Co. I have never been in a bar that packed and fun, it was awesome.

Bigger town. Fewer ski bums.

I liked it.

Tons of acreage to ski. Probably my favorite place to ski. Are you staying on the Whistler side or Blackcomb side?

No idea really. Just getting started planning.

Wife knows someone that has been a few times and mentioned blackcomb.

Is one better than the other? I looked at the map and seems to be one big town. But maps don't always tell the story when you don't know what exactly what your looking at.

It did seem to look like two different mountain peaks that converged below in town.

Would prefer at least ski in , if not both in and out. But that might be too expensive , dunno.

I liked the Whistler side a lot better. Blackcomb seemed dated and kind of dead.

Go during the week for better prices on hotels. I rented a kitchen suite on a Monday and it was regular price $430 CAD they knocked it down to $300 CAD. I'm sure you can find a lot better prices.

It will be during the week , but the week of spring break.

Really the only time we can go with school and all.

This. Even during the week it will be slightly less crowded than weekends.  Whistler is my preference and you can ski both mountains no matter which side you stay on. You may have to ski down to base and take lift up the other side, etc, but you'll want to do that anyway to take advantage of lunch spots at the base of each mountain, I suspect.
