2010 Winter Olympics are coming!

The 2010 Winter Olympics in Whistler are almost here.

The schedule shows opening events on February 12th, with closing events on February 28th. Its going to be a busy month for the area!

If you’re looking for Olympic vacation rentals in the area, consider Glacier, WA. Our home is 3.5 hours from Whistler (driving directions), certainly a hefty drive, but if you’re only going to the games for a day or two and want to spend the rest of your vacation skiing or snowboarding, Mt. Baker is a great alternative only 30 minutes from our home!

If you choose to stay with us, you’ll be saving hundreds off your stay per night in nearby Vancouver and $400-$600 off your nightly rate if you were to find an available spot in Whistler!

There are a lot of beautiful homes in the Glacier/Maple Falls area. If you’re looking to stay in the area for the winter olympics and our home doesn’t meet your needs, let me know and I’ll see if I can find someone else in the area with an opening!

It looks like its going to be a record year this year, though nobody knows for sure if we’ll beat the numbers we had back in 1999 when Mt. Baker set the world snowfall record.

If you’re looking for a short term vacation rental in the Mt. Baker area, contact us using the contact form on our home page. We have a minimum stay of 3 nights and can offer great discounts on longer stays in our brand new vacation home that sleeps 6 comfortably!
