Lodging lists for Whistler

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Is there a list or post which helps with good places to stay at Whistler? Our family of 6, is considering a trip there sometime during next Jan - Mar, and need to estimate the trip cost as well as save our coins. Also, I'd appreciate any trip advice, or any links for condo or efficiency apt rentals you've had good experience with. Thanks.......

All the places I've stayed have been very similar in quality. It depends on how much $$$ you are willing to part with. One way to save is to get a place that is not a walk-to-the lifts type. The bus system is very frequent and free. It takes you to the bottom of both mountains and to the village; room for skis and gear is built in. This may not work well for a family of 6, though.

If I was taking little ones on a ski vacation I wouldn't take them to Whistler. Too big. A smaller area would give me a greater sense of ease knowing they wouldn't have as great of a chance of getting lost. I could relax a bit more. To counter that last opinion, I did have a wonderful experience with the ski school on Blackcomb when my kids were small.

I've stayed at or seen the inside of all of these condos, once again very similar in quality to each other, in the "village north" area.

Stoney Creek Lagoons
Stoney Creek Northstar
Stoney Creek Sunpath
Glacier's Reach

They are all an easy walk to the lifts for both areas and more spacious (and quiet) than those in Whistler Village.
I'd avoid Creekside, Nicklaus North & Alpine Meadows since coordinating 6 people in cars every day will be a pain.

Whistler is awesome....I have had the best luck using www.alluradirect.com

This site if for owners to list their condos/homes for rent. I have used it every year for a the past 4 years and always been able to get a great deal at peak times. We usually rent a studio or 2 BR unit in the village...but there are tons of options. Also, you avoid any hotel taxes (which run >10% I imagine...) by booking with the owner.
