Whistler Lodging Update!

There was a moment yesterday when I thought for sure that the Whistler trip was dead. 

As of yesterday morning, there was still no lodging booked.  I had heard some rumors that the hotels are sold out, prices have skyrocketed, it’s too late…(even though the entire ski industry seems to be pretty slow this year, judging from the number of last-minute email offers I’m getting). 

But, as things do, it all worked itself out yesterday afternoon.  I randomly tried the phone number to one more rental, thinking it might be our last hope, and it ended up working out pretty perfectly.  I have to scan/email some paperwork tomorrow, but once that is done, we’re set to stay here:

We’re renting a townhouse in the Montebello development of Whistler that houses 8 people.  We got a great deal compared to usual Presidents’ Weekend rates (it works out to just over $80/night/person after deposit), and the place is in a great location close to the main Whistler Village and walkable to ski lifts.  I found this place listed on Vacation Rentals By Owner, which linked to the owner’s separate travel website.

We leave on Friday, February 13th (yes, that is in one week!), ski Saturday and Sunday, and drive back to Seattle on Monday. 

(For the record, I don’t recommend waiting this long to book a ski place for a holiday weekend.  I’m pretty sure this is the last rental in a good location to be found there, so luck was on our side.)

Bring on the snow and the hot tub!  I can’t wait.
