don't come to whistler if you are looking to save money. unless you live with your parents here, then you aren't gonna save any dough.
my first year out of high school, a friend of mine moved up to try and save and he wound up not making any new friends, never going out, and never wanting to do any thing because he was worried about money all the time.
you don't want to move to a place like whistler and worry about money and not be able to enjoy yourself and live it to its fullest extent.
and to quote my sister "I have one word of advice: predrink. That's all"
