Whistler is one of the most famous winter sports resorts in Canada, if not the world. Located 123km from Vancouver along the Sea-to-Sky highway, Whistler was the host of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. You'll find a choice of several Whistler hostels for your stay.
Although a popular destination in Summer months also, Whistler's status as one of the world's leading ski resorts that you associate with it's fame. Lying at an altitude of just 670m above sea level, Whistler's climate is mild compared to other ski resorts. This does not mean the snow is lacking. Whistler's slopes are well maintained and there is massive terrain spread over the two mountains, Whistler and Blackcomb. Each mountain has a couple of terrain parks and backcountry possibilities are endless. Activities such as heli-skiing are offered. Depending on the time of year it is possible to do skiing, boarding, mountain biking, bungee, zip lining, whitewater rafting, and snowmobiling.
In Summer, once the snow melts, the locals hang up their skis and dust down the mountain bikes. Other activities such as hiking and golf also take place. A somewhat unique activity is to view the Whistler bears who come out of hibernation in the warmer months.
Whistler has a pedestrian village lined with bars restaurants and shops selling skiing paraphernalia. Restaurants cater for all from budget travelers (which probably includes most Whistler hostel guests) to those for whom money is no object.
Apres ski is lively in any of the bars near the bottom of the slopes of each mountain - Garibaldi Lift Company, Longhorn Saloon at Whistler, Merlin's at Blackcomb and Dusty's at Creekside. If you don't want to just hang out at your hostel, Whistler has a vibrant night scene. Each bar has it's "own" night during the week, and all will be busy during weekends once the crowds from Vancouver arrive.
Whistler has a several hostels offering clean, good quality budget accommodation. All the newer ones have the same mod cons that you would expect from a hotel.

UBC Whistler Lodge
"Nestled among the trees in the hostel district, UBC Whistler Lodge is located just off the main highway and is only a ten-minute drive to Whistler Village. If you don't have the luxury of a vehicle and a lot of gear, an approximately ten-minute walk to a bus stop will make the trek to the recreation of Whistler a lot easier. The hostel itself is designed like a lodge but it's quite old and very tired looking. Although moderately clean, the...

I'd definitely recommend staying there if you're on a budget." … "Beautifully presented but dreadfully noisy to sleep - If give this hostel with its...

BCIT Lodge (Art's Hostel)
"It was just my luck that I moved to Whistler on the year they break records with the amount of snow they get. The only place to stay is Art's Hostel, or as those of us stuck there call it, "Art's Hole." Art's Hostel has its obvious downsides which I choose not to reiterate but has big upsides. People hear about the reputation as the place being a slum, so I get pretty serious street cred as a hard ass mofo. Art condones marijuana use indoors....
