The temperature in the village itself was very pleasant shorts weather during the day, while at night it did drop a couple of degrees but was still great. White was still visible on some mountain peaks although it's possible this was glacial. Cherry (who we are currently staying with in Vancouver, Canada) organised the accommodation, and transport was via Greyhound which took just over two hours and provided different scenic vistas almost for every bend in the highway.
While in Whistler we spent heaps of time hiking, walking around the village shops (along with hundreds of other tourists), watching the mountain bikers ride around the mountains and catching a few sights.
There was also one book shop in Whistler Village - Armchair Books.
This store carried heaps of new books. There was also one Bond novel, Faulk's "Devil May Care" which I already had.
