my friend and I are heading out to Whistler in the first week of April 2010. Originally planned to stay in the whistler blackcomb staff housing but then realised you had to either be a full time employee or wait until may to stay there.

So i was wondering if anyone knew how to go about getting an affordable apartment to live in? we're staying for 6 months but since we dont have jobs yet were ideally hoping to live walking distance away from shops restaurants etc to better our chances? does anyone know from which areas we would be able to do this from?

All help would be greatly appreciated

A friend of my husband and mine stayed at the Alpine Greens. She actually wrote a review of it here: Whistler Vacation Rentals. I know that she had a really good experience with the person she rented from. There are some more reviews of it here. Be sure to say how your trip was, Whistler has been on our “travel list” for a while.
