If you're not into outdoor activities...
then spend your time in Vancouver...
and leave Whistler out of the plans.

3It is beautiful for scenery and the Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Center is worth your time if you're into cultural pursuits-- the Sea-to-Sky highway affords some of the best scenery on the planet, IMO.
This is from a non-outdoor pursuits type of person (not into snow sports at all - preference for ice sports) - but I ended up in Whistler during the 2010 Olympics - I was an employee so didn't whinge too much, I wouldn't have volunteered for Whistler. The town was a sh!tshow during the O's, but scenery was way over the WOW! factor.
If you have time, it's worth a long day trip -- prices for accomms can help make your decision, as well ;) - makes Vancouver seem 'reasonable'.

7Yes it's worth a day trip-take the Peak to Peak for yet another jaw dropping experience.

8They have zip lining there which was really great to do in the forests up there. And on the way, if you're a hiker, you can do, "the Chief" in Squamish. The views on the first peak alone are amazing :)

9"And on the way, if you're a hiker, you can do, "the Chief" in Squamish."
I'm going to suggest that hiking the Chief doesn't correlate with the OP's statement,
"We will be there in may and we dont ski or hike etc."
