  • Great value!

    "Nice, roomy condo, well-maintained property with a nice pool and great hot tub, right on the side of Blackcomb all at a really good price. Close walk down the slope to Blackcomb lifts. Michael was really easy to work with and very responsive. I'd definitely rent again. Just hoping for more snow next time."

  • Great Family Getaway

    "We rented the cottage for 5 days for our family of 5. The cottage was spacious and could easily accommodate 2 families of 4 each. Doris, the owner met us on arrival and showed us around and was extremely accommodating and eager to ensure that we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The view from the living room and master bedroom was spectacular and we enjoyed playing chess, cards and scrabble when the weather didn't cooperate. The new kitchen was well equipped and we enjoyed cooking some hearty family meals. I would highly recommend this cottage for a family or singles getaway."

  • Exceptional accomodations

    "We rented this property for 10 days this September. The pictures on the VRBO website do not do it justice, as the house was exceptional. Our family appreciated all the amenities and well stocked kitchen. The location was great and the views splendid. The main living was large with an open concept which was ideal for entertaining expended family members for dinners and memorable evenings., The outdoor space was enjoyed by all our adult family members."

  • Convenient and Comfortable

    "Stayed at the Aspens week of 3/7/15. We found the condo to be a great fit for our family of 4. Beds were comfortable, as was the living space. Kitchen was a bit small, but very nicely appointed and serviceable. The condo faces away from the pools which keep it quiet, while getting the pools is a simple walk down a stairwell 30 feet away. Very easy walk down the slope to Blackcomb base and another 5 minutes on path to Whistler. Pool and hot tubs were clean and warm and never too crowded. Would definitely recommend this unit to any group up to 4 people. Alan was great during the booking process and checked in on our first day of stay. When back in Whistler we will definitely rebook!"

Whistler Travel Tips

Just two hours north of Vancouver you'll find Whistler, a top Canadian resort destination that's great for a visit year-round. This spot is situated near Whistler and Blackcomb mountains with a lively base village. In the winter, it's the perfect spot to enjoy hours of skiing, snowboarding and other exciting cold weather activities. When the weather warms up, Whistler offers championship golf courses, plenty of hiking and biking trails, and much more.

All year long you can peruse the variety of shops in Whistler and try the different bars and restaurants for delicious meals and drinks.

Whistler was so named for the furry animals in the area that sound like they're whistling. The area is centered around four main neighborhoods: Whistler Village, Village North, Upper Village and Creekside.

Cold Weather Activities

- Whistler Blackcomb: For some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the area, head to Whistler Blackcomb. This was the official skiing spot for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Whistler and Blackcomb are side-by-side mountains that offer collectively more than 200 marked runs, more than 8,000 acres of terrain, 14 alpine bowls and three glaciers. This spot receives more than 430 inches of snow each year, making it one of the longest ski seasons in North America. Whether you're an avid skier or snowboarder or it will be your first time on a run, you're sure to have a great experience with with so many different trail options.

- Sleigh rides: If you've traveled with your sweetheart or your family, a Blackcomb horse drawn sleigh ride is a must. It's a perfect way to enjoy the winter wonderland as you glide across the snow. Snuggle up under a warm, cozy blanket, sip hot chocolate and listen to the jingle bells as the Percheron draft horses pull you through the snow-covered forest trails.

- Snowshoe trails: Enjoy a winter walk with snowshoes. Whistler offers a variety of trails like Trapper's Trail, Natural Mystic Tour, Winter Wonderland and more where you can explore the natural scenery and keep an eye out for local wildlife. Snowshoeing is a fun activity for people of all ages, and you can rent snowshoes if you don't own a pair.

- Whistler Day Spa: After all the vigorous activities like skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing, your body is bound to feel a little sore. Sooth your aching muscles and allow yourself to relax with a trip to the Whistler Day Spa. Massage therapists will work out painful knots and ease any tension built up in your body. Estheticians will care for your windblown skin with a healing, moisturizing facial. You can even treat yourself to a manicure and pedicure so your feet and hands sparkle.

- Barefoot Bistro: When it's chilly outside, there's nothing more comforting than a warm, delicious home-cooked meal. You'll find just that at Barefoot Bistro, a French bistro-style champagne bar and restaurant. Sip some some Dom Perignon (served by the glass) and dine on exceptional French cuisine. On most weekends, you can enjoy live jazz music.
