About Cliff Ehnes and Kim Briscoe

We chose this property because we are family that enjoys both both winter and summer sports. We love spending time in vibrant Whistler.

Cliff Ehnes and Kim Briscoe purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Cliff Ehnes and Kim Briscoe chose Upper Village

We chose Snowbird for many reasons. Of all the properties we looked at, this town home had the most charm and it is huge, not one of those cramped condos with a pull out couch to squeeze in those extra people. It is close to the village while being in a safe quiet neighbourhood.

The vaulted ceilings and large windows on the main floor offer lots of natural light and space. It comfortably sleeps 9 without needing to use a pullout couch. The beds and furniture are comfortable. All of the bedrooms are quite large, and have balcony access. It is so nice to step out and enjoy the views; plus there is a deck off of the living room too. We have two reserved stalls in the secured underground parking, with direct access to the unit, and when you take off your ski boots, the heated floor feels great. We are really enjoying our second home in Whistler. I hope you will too.

What makes this townhome unique

Snowbird is only a seven minute walk from the base of Blackcomb and a 15 minute walk to The Village, along paved trails.

There is a complimentary bus that stops right at the complex (#5) and takes you town.

This free bus runs every 15 minutes until 2 AM in the winter season (and the bus drivers are so helpful, lots of fun.) This means you can ski, enjoy a little après ski, take a little nap, go for dinner at one of Whistler's world class restaurants, do a little nightclubbing, and get safely home.

  • 2 of 5

The townhouse was very satisfactory but several things ruined our stay. There were 1 shower in the en suites on the upper level and one on the lower level The upper one was so hot no-one could use it so there were 8 of us having to queue for the lower level.

The site was also a builders yard. we were met with a large skip in the entrance, there was scaffolding all over the place and we were woken every morning at 8 am with workers shouting and power tools revving up. we were not alerted to this before we arrived otherwise we would have chosen somewhere else. We noticed that no other townhouse in the complex had been rented out during this period so the other townhouse owners must have realised how disruptive and unpleasant it would be. We had 2 workers wander in one morning to check the gas heater, and although they were very polite it should not have happened. This townhouse was a lot more expensive than others but as it was a special occasion we decided to pay the extra. it was my mother's 90th birthday and family had travelled from Australia, GB and Vancouver to go there. it was the first time we had been together as a family for 12 years I wrote to the owners but they did not respond, not even an apology which led us to believe they just didn't care. What should have been a very relaxing stay, which took a lot of planning was spoilt.

Owner's Response: It is regrettable that the guest felt that they had a less than satisfactory stay. Unfortunately they chose not to contact us during their stay to advise us of their concerns. We have had the shower inspected and it functions normally. We can not explain the difficulty they had in using the shower. All bathrooms were completely renovated 10 months ago and are in complete working order. As note in previous reviews we address all maintenance concerns promptly when notified by a guest. The workers that attended were conducting safety inspections of all the gas fireplaces in the complex. Provincial regulations require that these inspections be conducted regularly. This is coordinated by the complex property manager and we are not in a position to defer or waive these safety inspections. We have rented properties through VRBO ourselves many times and have never been offended when maintenance personnel attend a property to ensure it is maintained properly. The guests who stayed immediately prior to these guests did not raise any issues or concerns and, in fact, left a complimentary review and sent a personal email expressing their satisfaction.

Great condo and loacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 days in Whistler and at this great condo. it was only a 10 minute walk to the Blackcomb lifts and the Upper Village. We were able to leave the car in the underground garage as we could walk to everything we were interested in. The kitchen was well stocked and there were enough towels and linen to go around.. Everybody mentioned that their bed was comfortable. We really enjoyed the use of this clean and comfortable condo. There are a lot of stairs but that did not bother us at all. The condo met all our expectations and we will definitely look this place up again if we get back to Whistler.

Thanks Cliff and Kim for the use of your place. It was great.

Great Family Space

  • 4 of 5

Well stocked. Our grandsons from the UK loved the Wii and couldn't believe they had their own TV. All the kitchen utensils, dishes and pots you might need. Beds were all comfortable. Very clean. Very quiet. Great access to Blackcomb base. Hope to go again next year.

has all you need!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in our stay.

The place had everything we needed. It is well equipped even with storage containers for the leftover food. Finding the shortcut pathway to the Upper Village helped.

We would use this place again.

Very lovely large condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights during a hot spell in July. Although there is no air conditioning most of the bed rooms had fans (except for the master bedroom) so we were not too uncomfortable. There are screens on the windows and some large trees that help to shade the apartment too.The kitchen has everything you will need. There is WiFi and several TVs. The only real complaint is the construction noise that starts at 9am and continues all day into the evening. The location is excellent it is only a short walk to Blackcomb village and there is a bus stop right out front.

Fabulous large condo

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo, with well equipped kitchen. Two underground parking spaces. A few minute walk to the ski shuttle. 10 min walk to the Blackholm lifts. As with many places in Whistler, there a lot of stairs. Three flights to the main floor from the garage. It was not a problem for us but it may be thought for someone who can't do a lot of stairs. That being said, this is a great find if you need a large condo.
