That's about a 20% improvement (our way) since I was up there at Easter time. But who knows what it will be by winter in this economy?

I was planning on it, but transportation to Fernie was too difficult to arrange. Going to Taos instead (which is also quite a bit cheaper).

I'm thinking it's going to be even better as oil prices drop.

Been getting the urge to do the Tremblant thing sometime in spring. I hear it's really great then. Have friends who are doing Whistler. I may wait closer to when it's time to decide. With the euro where it is, I won't go overseas.

Hmm, these are all places where the # of visitors may drive the prices up in spite of economy trends.

Anyone going off the beaten tracks?

Regardless, if the American dollar is worth more than the Canadian dollar, there is a savings....all other things being equal. And Whistler is the site of the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Well, Colonel, I honestly don't remember the last time things -were- equal at Whistler or at Tremblant (or even at Louise to some degree).

Two-week holidaymakers and seasonaires flood the market with Asian, Aust. and Euro/GB cash; the prices have very little to do with Canadian dollar cost to the price setters and very much to do with what the market can bear.

Canadian dollar tanks against the pound? Wups. Did we say those beaver tails were CDN$5? We meant CDN$8.
