I went to ask about walks round the lakes (during snow season) and was given very helpful advice and maps. There are also some commercial tourist type operators there and an excellent sushi outlet.

Great place to book all your whistler activities, and get lots of advice on things to do in the area that are free ( valley trail etc ... ). Great little sushi place inside too, as well as small Tim Hortons set up !
