  • Good location, Nice property, Lovely owner

    "This is a nice, very clean, 2BR condo. We are accustomed to sharing a larger house with another family, so to us it felt a bit small -- but it's probably a typical size for a 2BR condo. There are walking paths to Blackcomb base, which we did use; even carrying/wearing all of your equipment, it's not a bad walk, 10-15 minutes mostly on a tree-lined walking path, with a short bit along a street. If you don't want to walk, the free BCTransit bus stops in front of the development's driveway; it runs quite often and can take you to Blackcomb base and the village proper. The free underground parking is secure, and though the spaces are small, we parked our rented Escalade there -- just maneuver carefully. The vestibule has a hanging ski rack and more than enough space to stow all your equipment, even your luggage, while you're there. You can probably fit a bike in there in the summer, too. Check-in was a problem for us, but the property mgmt company finally straightened it out. The owner followed up as rapidly as she could and went out of her way to "make it right". She is a lovely person to speak with; if you have questions before or during your stay, you won't feel like you're being a nuisance by contacting her. Small quibble: A few of the things that we've come to expect in kitchens were absent -- salt/pepper, coffee filters, foil, containers with lids for leftovers... admittedly, that's not a big deal, but it did surprise us. Nice showers, lots of blankets, comfy beds, good pillows. The bunk beds are a little lightweight, the kind built more for younger children, so if you have an older, taller, bigger person in the top bunk, it can sway a bit. That said, our two kids (boy and girl) were very happy that the "kid room" had completely separate beds so that they each had their own areas. The owner provides the special logs that you need to make a fire; the little stove doesn't give off a lot of heat (which is a good thing in a small space) and gives a cozy feel to the room. When we were there (early April), snow had abandoned the bottom third of the mountains. We saw many people who probably paid a ton of money for ski-in, ski-out properties that were surrounded by bare grass. Watching them walk a long way to their properties left us feeling fiscally happy: even though we were walking 10-15 minutes, we knew that we had paid far less than they did and we had just as much convenience to the lifts."

  • Fabulous Cabin for Larger Groups

    "The owner is extremely helpful. The place is very cozy, yet spacious (lots of beds, a big porch, hot tub). It has many amenities (a beer keg!, popcorn machine) and a large kitchen and eating area. We had a birthday dinner catered at the house and the caterer mentioned that the kitchen was perfect for that kind of event. Only a few minutes drive to the hills, the views from the porch and the upstairs bedrooms are amazing. The windows lacked drapes when we were there, so be prepared to wake up early (which is fine for the skiers in the group). The best thing you can say about a place is that you would book there again and that you would recommend it to friend. We will do both. Thanks!"

  • Central, quiet, well-maintained condo

    "The condo was easy to find and access and all the staff were very helpful. It was on the small side, but cozy and perfect for a single skier/rider, and very comfortable, clean, and organized. As an added bonus, it was situated in the heart of Whistler Village, very close to dining and shops and just a quick, easy walk to both the Whistler and Blackcomb gondolas. I had a great time and would happily stay there again."

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.

Warm Weather Activities

- Amsterdam Cafe and Pub: When the weather is warm, you can spend a wonderful evening dining on the charming outdoor patio of the Amsterdam Cafe and Pub. Dine on traditional pub fare like shepherd's pie, burgers, pasta and more as you check out the local scenery.

- Hit the beach: In the summer months, spending time at the beach is a must, and Whistler provides a variety of options where you can soak up the sun and splash around in the water. Lakeside Park is great for families, with a kid's play area, picnic tables and a barbecue. Swim in the warm waters or rent a canoe, boat or windsurf for an adventure. Rainbow Park is another terrific option, with sandy shores, volleyball courts and a large dock floating offshore for swimmers to hang out.

- Wedge Rafting: Thrill seekers will love the experience of river rafting with Wedge Rafting. White water tours are offered between based on a range of difficulty from class 1 to class 4 rapids. A professional guide will take you down Whistler's rivers as you navigate the rapids.

- Whistler Museum: Escape the heat with a trip to the the Whistler Museum, where you can learn about the area's natural history and mountain life. There are a variety of exhibits that anyone, no matter their age, can enjoy. You can also be led by a guide with a Valley of Dreams walking tour or check out the multimedia presentations.

- Whistler Brewing Company: Take a tour of the Whistler Brewing Company and see how the craft beers are made. A tour guide will show you around and you can sample different brews.
