Thanks to all that replied.
I tried every which way to just fly in Vancouver but couldnt get the costs even close. So Seattle it is,even with factoring in 30 a night to park at Whistler, fuel and cost to rent a car, its 300.00 + plus per person to go into Vancouver and shuttle in.
Our arrival is 11am on Wednesday so we should be able to get through the cities pre rush hour, and will be coming back down the mountain Sunday night to spend the night in Seattle for a early morning Monday departure. I'll keep my eye on the website for the border crossing wait times. Thats exactly the type of info this forum is great for, would have never figured it out starring at a google map.
I guess getting into Canada and back into the US isnt like it was back in the early 90s when I lived in northern Maine and often had to beep the horn to wake the border guard.
What is all this talk about licnese checking and DUI's? I have neither a DUI or moving violation on my license but is there a way to pre check my license number, I dont like surprises.
I am sure I'll have more questions as the trip time nears. I'll be sure to post them.
If you will be there from the 2/22 - 2/27 and see a guy wearing a black helmet, blue ish gray jacket, and grey ski pants say hi,....... or drinking a pint followed by a shot, its probably me.
Or one of the other 1000's of people there that happen to dress the same or enjoy a beer and shot.
Once again thanks,
