im going to be in whistler for the months of jan and feb 2007 and im trying to find somewhere to sleep. ive done heaps of searching on the net and i can find luxuary hotels and unfurnished appartments. is it possible to find furnished apartments? or even just cheap places that you can stay at for more than a week?
any website links or directions would be great :)

I really don't know anything about the appartements in whistler.. I do know that if y ou contact the hostels in the area, they might give you a special fee for staying more than a week... But you have to consider that whatever you will decide, whistler is an expansive place to live. Ranging from food to housing. I stayed at the shoestring lodge in Whistler... Its a hostel... I would rate it at 7/10 ! Good luck,

Have you tried looking at the local newspaper and looking in the rental section? There are usually a lot of furnished apartments for rent catering to the international students. Trying to find accomadation near or at whistler is an expensive venture so I dont know what else to suggest. Sorry. Try Canada.com and then at the classifieds in Vancouver you might find something. YOu could also consider advertising in the paper yourself about wanted accomadation. Sorry I cant be more of a help but accomadation at whistler and cheap is hard.

Depending on how many staff are working for the resort of WhistlerBlackcomb, there is a lot of staff housing. It is usually booked up for the beginning of the season but then cools off as people leave or find their own apartments. If you go on to whistlerblackcomb.com I think there is a contact to see if there is any staff apartments free, they are fully furnished and great for meeting people.
I lived in staff accommodation for 6 months and it was brilliant, it felt like our own little community.
Not sure if it will work but I'm sure it is worth a try!
