Not being a skier and having never been to Whistler, I'm having trouble figuring out where the hotels are. My family is doing the Amazing Race family fun half day in Whistler and we start across from the Chateau Whistler. I don't want to stay there, but I do like the prices in July and the looks of the Pan Pacific hotels and the Sundial one. Does anyone know which is closer to the Chateau and if the Chateau is in a central enough location for us to explore Whistler in July just for a day (kids are 9 and 12).
ps. It looks as if the Pan Pacific Village Centre is very well liked, but I'm not sure if it's close or the other Mtside Pan Pacific is closer to the Chateau, or if it matters???
