Here is some info for the upcoming bus trip to Legends in Whistler: 

WhistlerLegends January 26 – 29, 2018

 

We will be taking the 5:00pm ferry from Swartz Bay on Friday January 26th

You are responsible for getting to the terminal. If you are driving to the ferry and parking your vehicle, the long-term parking lot rate is $12.00 per 24 hours. 

We will be walking on as foot passengers.  I have made a group reservation; the cost for the group reservation is as set out below:

Regular fares

Group Friday

Group Monday

Adult $17.20

Adult $14.70

Adult $14.70

Senior $17.20/$8.60 (Mon-Thurs)

Senior $14.70

Senior $8.60

Please bring the correct change or a cheque (payable to Paddy Bradley) to pay for your ferry fare.  I will collect the money and pay for the group as only one person can pay. Please also identify if you are a senior or travelling on a BC Ferry pass. Please bring a valid BC DL or gold care card to qualify for the senior rate.  This is a little more trouble butit reduces the cost. 

We have to arrive pay for the ferry fares 30 minutes before the sailing so please get to the terminal in time for us to get organized and paid. Plan to be at the terminal no later than 4:20pm.

Our Group  reservation for the ferry which allows us to have two luggage carts reserved. 

If you are not travelling with the group on the bus please let Paddy Bradley (tripco-ordinator) know by email to paddy.bradley@shaw.ca so we have an accurate count for the ferry and bus.

The bus will be picking us up at Tsawwassen.  You will need to collect your luggage and make your way to the waiting coach in the bus pick-up area.  Our bus is InternationalStage Line.

Bring your favourite beverage for the bus, sit back and relax for the ride.

Arrival time at Whistler should be around 9:45pm.  Please have one person from each room check in at the front desk, to collect keys and locks etc. We are in 2 bedroom units. The room configuration is one king bed and 2 twin beds.

We will be having a Potluck on Saturday night split between two rooms (sorry no more banquet/meetingroom), so bring your favourite dish to share.

The bus will arrive on Monday between 2:30 and 3:00 and depart when loaded to catch the 7:00 pm ferry home.

 

Some things to remember:

-       Bring a bathing suit and flip flops – Legends has one of the best hot tubs inWhistler!

-       Bring ear plugs - your room-mate might snore

-       Legends Creekside rooms have fully equipped kitchens with all the amenities

-       There is a grocery store and liquor store across the street from Legends (bring bagsWhistler charges at both the liquor store and grocery store).

 

Things to do inWhistler:

"Fire and Ice" is on at Skier’s Plaza WhistlerVillage starting at 7:00pm Sunday evening. This is a free event.

 

The bus runs between Whistler Village and Legends andcosts $2.50 each way.  There is a bus stop very near Legends.
