Hi, was wondering if those have been to Vancouver can offer some advice to me. I will be going to Vancouver in early May and was wondering if it is possible to make day trips to Whistler Mountains. I understand the accommodation there ain't the cheapest, so I thought I will go in the morning (via grey hound bus) or other public means and get back to Vancouver in the evening.

Is it possible at all or is the journey from Vancouver to Whistler too far to be covered within a few hours?
