Hello! My boyfriend and I are moving to Vancouver for 3 months and I am looking for some adivce. Our plan is to leave at the end of Janurary and lease a place for 3 months. We both want to do a fair amount of snowboarding/sleding/tubing and are also hoping to catch the beginning of spring in April. Our budget for housing is about $1500. We are in our mid twenties looking for a place with adventure/night life/fun! I just have some questions...
1. Where to lease a place?
Downtown looks nice but maybe a little too expensive, North is appealing bc it is closer to skiing...
2. How is driving from Vancouver to Whistler or other ski villages?
We will have a car there.
3. Is winter a bad time to visit?
We are worried about being stuck inside too much due to bad weather.
4. Hows the nightlife situation if you do not live downtown?
cab/public transportation and nightlife not in downtown
I know I am forgetting so much stuff but this it for now. Any advice is much appreciated and can't wait to visit!
