About Brendan Smith

We are a family who have used our unit for many years. Our children learned to ski here from when they were 3-4 years old and are all now very good skiers thanks to Whistler kids ski school

Brendan Smith purchased this condo in 2000

Why Brendan Smith chose Whistler

We spotted the Aspens when on honeymoon in 1997 and came back to buy our unit in the Aspens due to its unique ski in ski out position on Blackcomb mountain. It is also ideal for families or those who may not wish to eat out every night. The hot tubs are in an exceptional setting right next to the piste

What makes this condo unique

Convenience for skiing and ski school, nice sized units, ideal for families, great pool and hot tubs. Walk to town, beautiful Chateau whistler shopping, dining, bar and Spa next door.

It is noisy

  • 2 of 5

Unit is oriented into the main entry, quite noisy with all the people and cars and busses to come and go basically all night.

Unit itself is nice, relatively spacious.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay as we would have hoped. The Aspens is a busy condo complex as it is in a perfect position on the mountain with true ski in ski out facilities. We are glad you thought our unit was nice. It has been upgraded and modernised compared to many in the building. Our unit has previously never been given less than 4 stars from all our reviews (check our reviews here and other websites) so we are very disappointed. We have stayed in various units and unfortunately you cannot get away from some noise at times. If your hillside you will get some from snowcat groming and late revellers coming home. If your poolside you can get quite a lot of pool and hot tub noise up until 10pm and then again people coming home late via the piste entrance. The quietest aspect is facing the woods but you get no view and no sunshine. There are pro's and cons with all aspects in the building. The last bus that drops off guests at the Aspens never usually arrives later than midnight (unless delayed) They do not run drop offs through the night likewise its rare for guest to drive in late at night and certainly we have not experienced this. Likewise complexes in town can be much more noisey due to proximity to bars , restaurants and nightclubs. Benchlands is relatively quite. Once again thank you for taking the time to post a review.

Great location, unit and owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for four nights in Mar. 2015 and really enjoyed it. The unit was exactly as shown/described. No bait and switch here. It was the perfect size for two people. I was happy to find the bedding and towels were new and high quality- "gently used" linens gross me out. We were looking for a place that was near all the action, but not right on top of it. (I had read a ton of reviews for other properties that complained about party noise.) This one fit the bill perfectly. The owner, Brendan, was responsive, informative and very easy to work with. We would stay here again.

Perfect family ski holiday

  • 4 of 5

We spent 4 nights and loved it! This unit is immaculate and perfect size for our family of 4. First time at Aspens and we will definitely be back. Can't beat the Blackcomb Mountain ski in/ski out experience with Chateau Whistler and Upper Village just minutes away. The owner and concierge were an absolute pleasure to work with. Highly recommend this unit and location!

Great Ski in/out location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Aspens in January '15 and had a great time. It's ski in/out location is ideal for skiing. The lower village is about a 5-10 minute walk. We will be back later this year!
