Property description

Best location for ski-in/out at Whistler. No stairs in this main floor level spacious townhome makes for easy access into the big mud room with lots of space for your gear or rent gear across the street and leave it at the foot of the mountain. You can easily ski Blackcomb or Whistler from this near-village location. Just cross the covered bridge and you are in the village and at the Whistler Gondola. Enjoy galleries, specialty stores, restaurants galore, candy stores, or walk to the end of Blackcomb Way at Lorimer Road and enjoy the Native Cultural Centre if you don't feel like being sporty - any more info you need about Whistler just ask - we are locals and know all the activities and events Whistler has to offer! If you are coming for mountain biking there is a large grassy area on the edges of Fitzsimmons River so you can wheel your bikes right into your home. 2 minutes to the world-famous bike park which is the lower part of the ski slope in winter - this location and townhome can't be beat for affordability, convenience and distance to all amenities that Whistler Village and Whistler and Blackcomb offer. Book now to have the best vacation ever. Also, ask about discounts for month long stays in winter and summer.

Keywords: Best location in always popular Gables Townhomes - directly across from Blackcomb Lifts and 1 minute to bike park in the summer. Lovely main floor townhome (no stairs!) across the street from Magic Chair and Wizard High Speed Quad lift - underground parking and once you park you won't have to drive again.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: We are an active family of skiers and have our permanent home and inn in White Gold Estates so we will come and check you in personally and help you plan your best vacation ever - We intend on having The Gables as our retirement townhome for when our kids are gone as it's the best location in Whistler. We have owned several properties in Whistler over the years and have decided that The Gables is a keeper as it is quiet while still being close to all the action in the village - we hope you will come and stay with us.

Why the Owner Chose The Gables:
Location, location, location - swimming in Lost Lake in the summer, hiking in summer, skiing and riding in the winter - and all the great restaurants in the village I know beat Aspen and Vail - we have fabulous quality for a reasonable rate.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Walk across the street to Blackcomb and across the covered pedestrian bridge to the village - we love never having to drive but you can enjoy underground parking if you wish to bring a vehicle - if you would like to arrive by limo we can arrange your reservations - no car is needed at The Gables.
