It's hard to beat rolling out of bed, walking a few steps and strapping on your skis or board. Whistler has three bases that offer ski-in/ski-out and many lodging choices that come at a pretty reasonable price.
However, it's good to keep in mind that Whistler's Village contains many excellent accommodation options that are a quick walk to the Gondolas. Several other properties offer free ski shuttles to the lifts. In addition, Whistler offers free shuttles that run throughout Whistler Village, Village North and the Upper Village.
