12 Awesome Things That Are 50% Off In Whistler For Brits

If coming to North America’s top ski resort has been on your bucket list for a while, now is the time to make it happen. The conditions are perfect…we have the best snow in years and the exchange rate is certainly in your favour.

While last year was a bit of a wash out for snow (let’s be honest), Mother Nature and El Niño are more than making up for it this season, with almost 4 meters of snow in the first month of opening and on top of that the UK, US, and Australia have incredible exchange rates with the Canadian Dollar.

For our UK friends here’s just a few of the things that are made cheaper by the current 2:1 GBP > CAD exchange rate. Rate by Google Finance and correct as of December 15, 2015.
