Just curious why Whistler is the best trip for couples? What does that mean?

I will not be able to make this trip this year. Though I would love to ski
the awesome terrain at Whistler I've heard so much about, I do find the
fake-village off-putting, fancy/structured meals do not interest me,
touristy stuff doesn't interest me much, could care less about shopping
opportunities, price is always an issue, can't afford heli-skiing.

This year I'm going to the Grand Canyon for a paddling trip for 3 weeks in
March. While I am bummed about missing the best month of skiing, it will be
a trip of a lifetime. I will sneak in 3 days in Utah before I meet the
group in New Mexico so at least I'll get in a little western skiing before
the season's over. Red/Whitewater/Valhalla in 2006!!
