Vancouver/Whistler trip - March 2011

Jump to last reply

Hi! My husband and I are thinking of planning a trip from March 11 - March 20th. We will be flying from RDU to Seattle on Friday (3/11). We are planning to rent a car in Seattle and driving to Vancouver (although I'm not convinced this will be cheaper) and then on to Whistler.

The ROUGH plan is:
Seattle - Friday, Saturday & Sunday night
Vancouver - Monday night
Whistler - Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday night (skiing!)
Seattle - Friday night (leave Saturday)

Is this too much time? Will the skiing be good around then? Should we plan more time in Vancouver? Should we reverse this itinerary and go skiing in the first part of the week? Should we plan a day in Victoria? I have heard that Vancouver, while beautiful, doesn't have that much to see. Is this true?

Please feel free to suggest alternatives! I am just in the beginning process of planning. Thanks so much!
