Whistler Area

Area

The most popular areas for lodging during a stay at Whistler are Village North and Upper Village. Each have their own unique characteristics..

"North" is great as there are lots of condos and several townhomes all located in one area close to the Village and the ski shops, restaurants, bars,and coffee shops. "Upper" is a little further from the Village and offers more townhomes in the woods, peace and quiet, some ski in / ski out homes and very little commercial activity.

From North one can walk to the Village and through it to the lifts, though many still will opt for the free shuttle and enjoy being dropped off right at the lifts, eliminating all walking. Similarly, Upper offers access to the free shuttle so while a longer walk to Village and lifts, the shuttle eliminates the walk and allows guests to hit the slopes very quickly.

Creekside is also right on the mountain and homes there are secluded and quiet, allowing easy access to the slopes and a short drive or shuttle ride back the Village.

Bottom line is there is a suitable place to stay for anyone visiting Whistler...

The Village

The Village

The Village is of course the heart of the action. A variety of ski shops, restaurants, gift shops, cafes, lounges and bars await you. One end of the Village opens up to the base of Whistler and several of the lifts, the other end (7 min walk end to end) joins up with Whistler Village North.

Village North

Village North

Village North, right by the entrance way to the Village, is all about convenient lodging...condos and townhomes all within a minute or two of the Village area. The Olympic plaza as well as Marketplace are also located right here. If you don't wish to walk in ski boots through the Village to the lifts, take the free shuttle which will drop you off right at the lift lines… Village North is as convenient as it gets!

Upper Village

Upper Village

Upper Village is where you stay to feel like you are truly at a ski resort, by the slopes and away from the commercial activity conveniently located just below in the Village area. These condos and townhomes are all located just off Blackcomb, surrounded by trees and in many cases pathways to Blackcomb so you can ski home at end of the day. While the walk to the Village can vary from 10 to 25 mins, the free local shuttle runs up and down the man street and drops you off in the Village or at the line so take advantage and get on to the slopes very quickly.
