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...
"Awesome, and for the right reasons. Assuming you're there to be on the mountain as much as possible, this is perfect, it's so close to the lifts, is situated directly above a decent breakfast spot, and you share individual rooms college dorm style so it's easy to get the sleep you need to wake up early for the lifts. Nothing is fancy but everything is perfectly what is needed." … "Loved this place. Big ups to Toshi and Scott for making...
BCIT Lodge (Art's Hostel)
"I stayed in this hostel for a month or so back in december '05. I would agree that it has obvious downsides, such as being a bit cold, has a lack of general privacy, and is overall a bit of a hole. However for the price you pay I would say piss off to those who talk smack about it. Plus i met some sweet people at this place. Though calling it basic would be an understatement, it's livable and I had some awesome times there. The fact that Art...
