Revelers ringing in the new year at Whistler, BC will be paying the most for the privilege of partying at Canada’s most prestigious ski resort.
According to a survey by CheapHotels.org, Whistler outranks every other Canadian city on their list of priciest New Year’s Eve destinations this year. The survey looked at the cheapest available double rooms in 20 popular Canadian destinations.
At Whistler, travelers will have paid more than CAD $700 for the cheapest double room available this weekend.
On the other hand, revelers on a budget who haven’t yet made their New Year’s Eve plans will want to consider Toronto, where the cheapest double room rings in at a more reasonable $147 a night.
After Whistler, Quebec City ($414) and Niagara Falls ($329) round out the top three spots on the most expensive cities list — all destinations popular for ski, winter traditions and outdoor lights and festivities.
Rates for the survey reflect the price for the cheapest available double room on December 31. Only hotels with a central location and a three-star rating or more were considered.

1. Whistler C$745
