Since there are so many people from Canada on this site, I thought maybe those that have been to Whistler can give me some feedback?!. I know they are gearing up for the 2010 Winter Olympics.... I think that's good?

When I was there, I actually had a conference in Seattle so my coworkers and I went early and stayed in Vancouver for a few days, then drove up to Whistler. The drive was about 2 hours (called the Sea to the Sky Highway)but it was so beautiful it went by so quickly. We stopped several times to take pictures. I hope you ski, because it is amazing. They should have a map that tells you what parts of the trails will be used for the winter olympics. They did when I was there and my coworker skiied down part of the trail. (I would have, but I'm not good enough yet).
Anyway, I would definitely spend a few days at Whistler for the skiing, but I would recommend checking out Vancouver too if you haven't ever been. There are a lot of funs things to do. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

We stayed at the Sundial a boutique hotel and it was gorgeous and right at the bottom of the hill and right in the village Sundial Boutique Hotel Whistler
another hotel that I would recommend is Pan Pacific Pan Pacific Whistler Home
My husband is really into snowboarding so he would make the Whistler trip a couple times a year and one of his best friends lived out there so if you have any questions let me know

We actually are thinking the same thing.
Since we are having our wedding in Puerto Rico (and we visit soo many times) I'm kinda over the beach thing & want to do something different!!!

They are re-working the Sea to Sky highway for the Olympics so give yourself some extra time if you are driving up from Vancouver.. just take it slow and enjoy the views

I am so excited... the pictures are fabulous! We actually talked about Vancover and Whistler on our first date as "must do."
Have a great weekend!
