Skiing is $120 canadian ($100 US currently)
Rentals is $60 approx ($50 US currently)

As noted above I stayed in Pemberton as hotels were completely sold out in Whistler but it was great! Not far at all! (12 highway miles approx)

Shabbos we stayed also in the Sutton Place Hotel which is 7-8 minutes from Chabad of downtown.

My sister cooked the shabbos meals and some breakfasts.. Really worked out well except waving the towel like by a game at the smoke detector to shut up.

Of course some people can leave easier & some harder.. Some have more vacation days & some have less.. Some work for others, some are their own boss.. Everyone has their own "package of good stuff & problems"

But if someone has the ability to fly & use miles & points.. YOLO

I hear you. This seems like a great short term trip (3-4 days) so plan around the next time you get a free Monday or Friday (due to holiday).
