    In Whistler the Swiss house is one of the few houses that the public can actually access. I wanted to make everyone aware of the Cultural House situation in Whistler as most of them are closed to the general public. You can go to http://blog.virtualwhistler.com/?page_id=383 to see where all the houses are and if they are open to the public.
