The biggest advantage of staying in Whistler Village isthat you can quickly walk anywhere. (The interior villagewalkways are pedestrian only.) There’s absolutely no need to drive.And with BC’s new drinking and driving restrictions, it’s waybetter to be safe than sorry – especially with “sorry” meaning ablood alcohol rate of .05 or one drink. Why stay at your aunt’stime-share at the other end of town and risk it?
