About the home
This house is walking distance to the village, with stunning views and ultimate privacy. We have a ski tuning area so skis can be waxed up, as well as a heated closet to hang ski gear, so it's dry and warm for the next ski day. Expect all the comforts of home with modern finishings, down feather pillows and duvets, flat screen t.v.'s in 3 bedrooms, fully stocked kitchen, and a luxurious living room with a large, flat screen t.v. and wood burning fireplace.
Unlike most Whistler places, we have a backyard which is very private so you can take in views while soaking in the hot tub or entertaining. Since the village is only an 8 minute walk away along lit pathways (or 2 minute taxi ride), you won't need a car. If you are driving during your holiday, the house has a one car garage with 4 additional parking spots.
Whistler Village is walking distance. This location is ideal for groups demanding proximity, comfort, privacy and convenience during their stay in Whistler. Free cable and WiFi.

The British Columbia region
British Columbia lies in a Northwest-Southeast orientation along the Pacific Coast of North America. The province is vast - 1,300 km long, (north-south) and 700 km wide (east-west), and is nearly four times the size of Great Britain. There are numerous mountain ranges, including the Coast Mountains, which include the highest peaks in Canada and stretch uninterrupted from Vancouver north to the Alaska border; and the famous Rockies that extend up the eastern border of the province.
Dotted throughout these glacial peaks are alpine lakes, their waters such vivid hues of vermilion and turquoise they appear surreal. Hundreds of inlets and fjords pierce the coastal mountains, creating cruising waters unlike any others.
The Whistler / Brio area
The resort destination of Whistler is nestled below the Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains in the Whistler Valley, north of Vancouver, British Columbia. In recognition of its world-class status as a ski resort, the cosmopolitan Village of Whistler co-hosted the 2010 Winter Olympic Games with Vancouver. Enchanting Whistler continues to be the fastest-growing municipality in BC, and has been recognized as the Top Ski Resort in North America for the past decade.
Central to everything in the resort is Whistler Village, with its shopping areas and après-ski restaurants bordered by squeaky-clean streets. The skiing is... well... maybe the best anywhere! Whistler and Blackcomb mountains have over 200 runs and 33 ski lifts combined.
Whistler is located on Highway 99, 75 miles (120 km) north of Vancouver. Access to Whistler is by car, limousine, van, scheduled bus, train, or chartered helicopter or floatplane. From Downtown Vancouver take Georgia Street through Stanley Park and over the Lions Gate bridge to the North Shore. Exit the bridge on the Marine Drive West turnoff and take the first right onto Taylor Way. Travel up the hill and turn left onto Highway 1, following the signs to Exit 2 just before the Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal, which leads you to Whistler on Highway 99. The spectacular two-hour drive along the Sea to Sky Highway (99 North), from Vancouver to Whistler offers awe-inspiring views of Howe Sound and passes by the town of Squamish.
Once you're in Whistler, you can ride a free in-resort shuttle bus within the village area. If you want to go sightseeing around the valley, you can use Whistler's public transit system or take a guided tour.
* Skiing & Winter Sports in Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. There are several styles of cross-country trails around Whistler, and the wilderness environment just beyond the lifts to the east, north, and west of Whistler/Blackcomb offers hundreds of ski runs, with a tremendous variety of slopes to accommodate all levels of skiers and boarders, from intermediate to expert. Additional winter activities include snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and old style sleigh rides. Venture into the backcountry with a professional musher and his team of Inuit sled dogs - a truly Canadian experience! When it's cold enough, out come the snow shovels to clear a place for ice skating on Alta Lake in Whistler. Head for Rainbow Park on Alta Lake Road to find it (and don't forget your shovel). Indoor ice skating is offered in Whistler's Alpine Meadows neighbourhood. Skates are available for rent.
* Heli-skiing provides access to the hundreds of runs accessible only by helicopter. The runs vary from expansive glaciers to beautiful subalpine open tree runs - depending on the weather conditions - and vary from 1,400 to 5,000 vertical feet (400m to 1,500m), with the average runs being approximately 45 minutes. The range includes 7,500-ft Spearhead (behind Blackcomb), 9,000-ft Ipsoot Mountain (north of Whistler), 7,200-ft Powder Mountain (south west of Whistler Village), and 9,300-ft Feethurley River Area (north of Pemberton). To those with an aversion to flight (unless it's off a cornice) snow-cat skiing/snowboarding can get you into the untracked backcountry around Whistler just as effectively as heli-skiing/boarding. More Information on Heli-Skiing around Whistler.
* Peak to Peak Gondola: At 4.4 kilometres long and 436 metres above the valley floor, the Peak 2 Peak gondola is an engineering marvel that spans the distance between Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. Use it to take in 360-degree views of ancient peaks and glaciers, to access 19 hiking and walking trails on both mountains, or to enjoy great alpine dining. The Peak 2 Peak breaks three world records: the longest unsupported span of 3.024 kilometres, the highest lift of its kind, and the gondola completes the longest continuous lift system on the globe.
** Summer: In the summer months, Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains offer a bounty of outdoor recreation activities. The varied terrain of the Vancouver, Coast and Mountains region accommodates every outdoor recreation known to man, including alpine sightseeing, mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding, canoeing and kayaking, river rafting and jetboating, mountain climbing, paragliding and hanggliding, backcountry tours, fishing, world-class golfing, and wildlife viewing. Whistler Blackcomb even offers summer skiing and snowboarding at elevation 7,600 feet (2,330 metres) on the high-alpine glaciated snow of Horstman Glacier on Blackcomb Mountain.
Golf: Whistler has been named one of the top ten golf destinations in the world. A fine combination of phenomenal scenery, superb golf courses and fabulous accommodation attract some of the world's golfing giants to Whistler. Top courses include Chateau Whistler Golf & Country Club, Nicklaus North Golf Club, and Whistler Golf & Country Club. Top courses nearby are Big Sky Golf & Country Club in Pemberton, and Furry Creek Golf & Country Club in Lions Bay, between Vancouver and Whistler. Golf Packages in Whistler.
* Mountain Biking: Whistler is a mountain bike mecca, offering the mountain biking enthusiast hundreds of trails to explore, including some of the best trails in North America. Ride the lifts to the top so you can enjoy breathtaking mountain views before commencing the exhilarating descent on rolling trails along glacier-fed lakes. Push the envelope further by flying in by floatplane to Callaghan Lake for a 16-km descent on rolling single and double track to the spectacular Brandywine Falls. Crankworx, Whistler's summer mountain bike festival in August, features competitions, demonstrations, and plenty of live entertainment. Mountain bikes are available for rental in Whistler Village. More information on Mountain Biking in the Whistler and Sea to Sky area.
* Ancient Cedar Forest, Cougar Mountain, Whistler, BC
Hiking trails and parks in the Whistler and Sea to Sky Corridor offer superb hiking and backpacking opportunities. The area boasts old-growth forest, many waterfalls, and pristine alpine meadows and lakes. Nature walks and hikes can vary from a casual outing to full-day hikes and multi-day backpacking trips. Heli hiking, alpine hikes, and glacier hikes are also available. More information on Hiking & Backpacking in the Whistler and Sea to Sky area.
* Horseback Riding: There is no better way to see and experience the sights and beauty of nature than on horseback. Take a scenic trail ride through lush old-growth cedar forest and out along the sandy beach at Green Lake, or enjoy a mountain trail ride in the alpine on whistler Mountain, where horseback rides leave from the top of the Gondola and meander through mountaintop trails. Experienced riders can climb a forest trail high above a glacial lake on half-day, full-day or overnight trips. Guided pony rides for kids can be arranged at the Edgewater Outdoor Centre on Green Lake. More information on Horse Riding in the Whistler and Sea to Sky area.
* Rock Climbing and Ice Climbing: The Whistler area boasts an abundance of great rock climbing; from 600-metre high granite walls to leading edge sport climbs. Many of the best sport climbs are within a short drive of Whistler Village, including Blackcomb Peak, Wedge Mountain, Joffre Peak, Mount Matier, the Nordic Bluffs and Cheakamus Canyon, offering sport climbs of grades 5.6 to 5.14. Ice Climbing and multi-day Ice Camps are also based out of Whistler Village. More information on Rock Climbing in the Whistler and Sea to Sky area.
* Paragliding is certainly the most graceful way to make a descent of a mountain. There's only one bump to contend with, and that's when you touch down. Paragliding is a long-standing tradition on Blackcomb Mountain's Seventh Heaven zone. More information on Hanggliding & Paragliding in the Whistler and Sea to Sky area.
* Canoeing and Kayaking: Paddlers can set off on one of the many canoe trips available on the Ryan and Lillooet Rivers, amidst panoramic scenery and wildlife environments that unfold around each bend in the river. Visit remote waterfalls, or stop and hike in to explore remote wetlands and ancient cedar groves. A visit to Whistler would not be complete without a paddle down the River of Golden Dreams. More information on Canoeing & Kayaking in the Whistler and Sea to Sky area.
