This is all part of attracting the multiple day tourist, rather than the local one day visitor. Trying to discourage people from the general area popping in for the day & not staying overnight. (many nights) I have relayed my displeasure to staff of having to name the day you bike/ski/ride several times. What if you get sick, wipe out or have a mechanical problem? The remaining days are lost. It's bullshit.
Yeah that is right in line with the Mayor's comments about how they didn't want the day-trippers coming up there with their bagged lunches and throwing their garbage everywhere. Such a load of shit. The only reason Whistler is what it is, is due to its proximity to Vancouver. So basically, they use Vancouver over many years to grow into a huge resort, and then when they are big enough to survive on their own they say "screw you Vancouver". I really hope this backfires on them.
