Peak to Peak
When skiing in Whistler, make sure to check out the gondola that takes you from the peak of one mountain to the other. The ride is cozy, and the views are spectacular.
A lift ticket costs around $90 and renting a snowboard and boots was $70. You can also find a nice lodge walking distance from the slopes for around $120 a night. A lot of them have fireplaces in the rooms, and some have nice outdoor jacuzzis.
