    So far I have a flight booked into Vancouver late Jan, a flight booked back from San Fran 3 weeks later and an Epic Aus Pass.

    Am thinking 10 days at Whistler to start and would welcome any recommendations on accomodation. Currently deciding between a studio with kitchen ski in/out Blackcomb side vs hotel style close to the gondolas in Whistler village. Convenience of easy access to shops/restaurants vs ability to cook.

    Then....haven’t decided. Options are back to the USA for some more epic resorts depending on snowfalls, upgrade to full Epic and stay in Canada, ski Fernie/Kicking Horse or go back to where the obsession all began 35 yrs ago and pay extra to ski around Banff.

    Solo trip, so no car, will be easier and more cost effective to use planes/buses.

    I've stayed here four times. It's a few minutes walk to the gondolas and right in the village. The kitchenette comes in handy for breakfast, I always just find somewhere in the village for dinner.
    There is a small supermarket and a bottle o a few minutes walk away in the opposite direction of the gondolas.
    I don't know when I will be in Whistler again but I will stay at the Crystal Lodge again.
