Vancouver, an extension of your compus.
(...) Vancouver and UBC are part of 'Sea-to-Sky country,' where a single day's activities could include golf, sailing, and skiing. From November to March students flock to local ski mountains (Grouse, Cypress and Seymor) or to Whistler-Blackcomb. UBC students even have their own lodge at Whistler, operated by the student government - a cozy retreat for a low-cost weekend of skiing or snowboarding.
Ok, I understand now. Whistler is the name of the most famous and popular ski resort near Vancouver, as far as I know. I know many students who are crazy about skiing and love going there. You can get some good deals via UBC. But Whistler is not in Vancouver, and so it is certainly not on UBC campus! What they meant was that there was a special lodge at Whistler set aside for students from UBC. Cool! I haven't been there myself yet, so I can't tell you how far away it is. I think you have to take a long bus ride to get there.

Edit: The golf course is on campus, and it is open to the public.
