I am looking to book a condo for next January in Whistler. I am noticing that EVERYONE has January 4-31 as discounted rates. Why is this? Just because it's right after Christmas? Just curious if anyone knows why it's cheaper...thanks!
That's basically it, it's the post Christmas/New Year's period. It's not just Whistler, but you see this pricing pattern at other resorts, Tremblant in the East, Banff in the west. Prices start off low from season opening until the holidays, shoot up over the holidays, back down in January, start rising by the third week of February for the university study breaks and March for the high school March breaks, then back down in April until closing.
Unless you have a package with flight, accommodations and tickets already included, I have used this company to find a condo in Whistler, always cheaper when you rent directly from the owner. If you go that route, don't buy your tickets directly on the hill and pay the window or walk up rate, there are cheaper options in Vancouver, and the 7-11 in Squamish has cheaper tickets, but not the 7-11 in Whistler.http://www.alluradirect.com/whistler/
