Discussion on Whistler

Marco :

I'm going to ski Whistler in late Jan for several days. I'll have a car and was thinking of exploring areas north of Whistler for a day or two. Does anyone have ideas or recommendations as to where to go, what to do and whether this is worthwhile? Not looking for nightlife etc., just looking to see and experience new terrain, meet some people and see what happens. Thanks

When I boot up my system I have the options to choose between Windows Professional, Windows Whistler Personal, and Windows Set Up. I have 8 seconds to choose Windows Professional before my computer automatically selects Windows Set Up. I would like to remove the Windows Whistler Personal and Windows Set Up Option on the screen. I recently reinstalled Windows XP Pro on my computer and I did so with a fresh new copy. My computer runs perfect now, but I still have the Set Up and Whistler options for some odd reason. What do I do? (! I DID NOT FORMAT MY DRIVE IN THE PROCESS OF REINSTALLING WINDOWNS!) Thanks for the advice here's where I'm at now: When I start up my computer the 3 options are still there in the same order, even after I manually deleted the Whistler and Startup options in the Startup and Recovery Settings tab. When I boot up this time, however, the computer selects Windows Professional first and initiates startup after 5 seconds...so I'm wondering what if I just change that 5 seconds to 0 and bypass the entire process altogether? Would that work?

"If you did not perform a format then there is a good chance that those OS installations are still there. If you simply want to remove the listing at boot do this. 1. Right click on MY COMPUTER and select PROPERTIES 2. Select the ADVANCED tab 3. Click the SETTINGS button under STARTUP AND RECOVERY 4. Select the default OS you want to use from the drop down at the top. 5. Extend or reduce the time to display list of operating systems to your liking. 6. Click the EDIT button to the right of "To edit the start up options file manually..." 7. Save a copy of this file in the event you mess it up. After you have a good copy stashed safely away, remove all unwanted entries until it looks something like this. [boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect BTW: Whistler was the beta version of XP back in the day."
pr_helpdesk :
"Whistler was the codename for Windows XP while it was still being developed by Microsoft. You must have had a beta version installed on your computer at some point. Your best bet would be to wipe the drive and reinstall everything from scratch - upgrading beta versions to official releases isn't usually a recommended practice. To remove the Windows Whistler and Windows Set Up options from the startup menu, you need to edit the boot.ini file in the root directory of your C: drive. If you don't know what you're doing, I'd strongly suggest getting a computer-savvy friend to help you, because you can mess up your computer bigtime if you screw up the boot.ini file."

Over spring break, I will be travelling to Whistler, B.C for a week-long snowboarding trip. We are going to be staying in the Whistler village area (at least I think that's what it's called). I know that most of my time will be taken up by the many snowboarding terrains the mountains have to offer, but I don't know what to do other than that. I was looking at a map of the village, and there appears to be at least ten of everything (resturants, places to hang out, etc). If anyone's been to Whistler before, can you please tell me what Whistler village has to offer for a teenager. I would like to know what you think the best places are to go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The best North American ski resort towns supplement skiing with great apres-ski activities. One ski resort town famous for having the best of everything, is Whistler Blackcomb in British Columbia. It’s the biggest ski resort on the continent and, with well over 200 trails, Whistler can accommodate skiers of any skill level.
