My friend and I are driving from Seattle to Whistler around mid-April. We're from the east coast in the US, so we're not very knowledgeable about this part of the world.
I've got two questions. First, if we are driving from Seattle to Whistler in mid-April, can we rent an economy car and be fine on the roads or do we need something with 4WD?
Second, is there anything we need to know about driving across the border in a rental car? We've got passports, so I think we're all set, but just don't want to be caught by surprise.
