About Jane or Greg Hicklin

Our family has loved skiing for years! We live in Calgary now but spent many years living in Switzerland skiing in Europe. Our favourite spot has always been Whistler so are happy that we are so close by to enjoy it.

Jane or Greg Hicklin purchased this condo in 2013

Why Jane or Greg Hicklin chose Upper Village

The Benchlands area is by far the best location in Whistler. It is so close to everything that our car gets parked and never moves until we leave town. It is a short walk away from the hustle of the village so nice and quiet for relaxing after a hard day on the slopes.

What makes this condo unique

Excellent ski-in and ski-out just across the street. Close to great restaurants and apres-ski pubs. The free shuttle to the village is just outside the door.

Great location, well equipped

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in a great location. The bus stop is just outside. Getting to the slopes and back is just a short walk across the street, with a little poling. The kitchen is very well equipped. We were a group of six and had plenty of space. Would definitely stay again.

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

We just spent the week between Christmas and New Years in Whistler....our stay was complete with family, great snow, and all the comforts of home. This vacation rental has EVERYTHING you need....I always bring many of my own kitchen tools as most places lack, but here, they even had mini muffin pans!! All the equipment is in excellent shape, the beds comfy, nice linens, plenty of was one of the better places I have rented through VRBO. Many thanks for a memorable visit.

Do not forget to put the keys back in the lock box!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place, only a 5 minute walk to the lift and you can board all the way back home. House had everything we needed, coffee maker, crock pot, pots pans, BBQ etc... Im listing it because the owner just says to much to list which is quite lazy IMO I would like a list of what the house has just so I am prepared. We were not able to use the spa on 2 of our 4 nights because it was not hot, not sure why but I will not hold that against the owner. You may feel like you are being scolded by the owners repeated remarks about how its not a party pad and how you must immediately put the keys back in the lock box. It was the joke of our trip, we kept poking fun at each other asking if the keys were back in the lock box!!!! Im guessing the owner has had some not so respectful guests in the past and it shines through clear as day. At the end of the day it was a great place to stay at a great price.

Excellent location for the summer or winter time. Whistler hosts the annual World Ski & Snowboard Festival in March and Crankworx, a mountain biking competition, in August. You can ski almost all year round with the glacier open in July! Just go to the Whistler/Blackcomb website to see all the activities going on year round.
