Additional information
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: You have to investigate well the options for accommodation in Whistler and not discard any option because if a minimum of two people are coming for a month or longer, the option of an aparthotel is more desirable if you book it with time to get a good price.
Other comments: I loved to stay in Whistler Tamwood and I would repeat it without any doubt if it were not because there are many more places in the world I want to visit.
