We are heading to Whistler for one week in February. We have a home in Creekside where we will be staying the whole week. We are flying in to Vancouver and planning on spending the night there before heading to Whistler. I am wondering if we really need to rent a vehicle at the airport to head to Whistler? We plan on skiing most of the time, both downhill and x-country but am not interested in having a vehicle sitting around all week if we won't need it. What are the possible options for transportation between Vancouver and Whistler and at Whistler while we are there? If we do need to rent a vehicle at the airport, is it important to rent a 4 wheel drive? Thanks for any help.
