Ski Vacation Day 7: Whistler

It would be a blast to attend the Olympic Games 2010 in Whistler.  We've been to the summer games and our advice is to be patient with the large crowds.  We loved the international cross section of people, meeting the athletes as they wondered around the grounds, and most of all the excitement of the competition. 

We heard there are still rooms available in Whistler during the games and while not a bargain, it would be worth the experience of seeing Lindsey Vonn in the giant slalom and Shaun White in the halfpipe.  Don't forget your skis and boards because 90% of the mountain will be available for public use!

A good bet for great accomodations would be the Fairmont Chateau Whistler (pictured above).  It's located at the base of Blackcomb Mountain and has coveted ski-in/ski-out access.  Our dream room would have mountain views and a cozy fireplace like this one:

Anyone have plans on going to the Games?  We'd love to hear about your experience!
