My family of five are going to be in Whistler over Christmas this year. First time on overseas snow for us so we are all very excited. However, after looking up the website to get an idea of lift tickets and ski school prices I was a bit shocked at how expensive they are. All we ever hear in Australia is how expensive our prices are and why would you ski here when you are better off going overseas where it’s all cheaper. Now I realise we are going in peak holiday season so we are going to be paying peak prices but when I worked out the equivalent tickets using Falls Creek pricing and we are talking substantially more expensive in Whistler. Am I wrong? Am I looking up the wrong things? I do realise that you are getting much more bang for your buck but the difference in price just didn’t seem to fit with the idea that overseas is much more reasonable.
