Early season deals start at Whistler

Skiers and snowboarders now have the opportunity to save some money on planned winter vacations in Whistler, with newly announced early booking offers. If booked by Nov. 15, the savings on these packages can be as high as 35%. Packages start at $68 p.p., per night, based on a family of four, including lift passes, for early season stays (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21). For instance, the three-star Cascade Lodge is offering a five-night stay and a four-day lift ticket for 33% off. Unit types include studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom condos with gas fireplaces and kitchens. This condo-hotel features a 24-hour front desk, large heated outdoor pool, hot tub, exercise facility and secured underground parking. Whistler’s shops, restaurants and other activities are just steps from the hotel. Rates start from $68 p.p., per night, based on a family of two adults and two children under 12 sharing one bedroom.
