Ski In Dine Out...
Chris from London, Canada

We had a very good time in this condo. The view from the unit was "as advertised" - we enjoyed it very much. The condo is well appointed (we particularly liked the wall coat hangers, strategically placed around). The reception staff was very helpful and the ski valet service is a great idea! The parking spaces are decent size (not like in some other neighboring condo complexes). We were lucky to be able to ski in and out, despite rather high temperatures.
Also, walking path to the village is a good alternative to driving.
We will definitely consider this unit for our future trips to Whistler!View Full Review

Great location but management could be improved
Carrie from Burnaby, Canada
Date: Jul-13-2015 for a stay in Jul 2015
I have no complaints about the location - it's right by the gondola on Blackcomb and the patio has this really nice view of the Aspens' swimming pool - however, I found the responsiveness of the management to be less than ideal.
The arrival instructions stated you needed to contact the owners in order to provide credit card information for a damage deposit. Since the owners provided a US number (international for me), I asked the in-town concierge whether it would be fine if I contacted her about it instead - no problem, she says. When I arrived, I reached out to the concierge multiple times via calls and texts and never got a response. Even when I contacted her about the amenities, I got no response at all during our entire stay there. This is quite disappointing service. I'd hate to think what would happen had I required more urgent assistance - I'd likely be ignored.
The place itself was very nice, but it was missing some of the "extras" we've come to enjoy at other places we've stayed at in Whistler (e.g., better stocked kitchen). Not a deal breaker by any means, but little touches like that do make a difference in a guest's experience.View Full Review Owner Has Responded

Outstanding ski in/ski out condo on Blackcomb...
Randy from Delmar, United States
Date: Feb-23-2015 for a stay in Feb 2015
We had a great experience with this condo over President's Week 2015. The condo is located very near the East Wing elevator in the Aspens, making for easy load in/load out. The condo is very well maintained. The kitchen is better equipped that most: plenty of dishes, utensils, pots, etc. If you want to cook, you can. The condo has a very nice view of the pools, the lower part of the Wizard Chair, and south toward the mountains that surround Whistler.
The condo has some very thoughtful touches that make it work well: plenty of hooks for jackets and ski pants so that one does not have to stuff everything into a closet; extra shelves in the bathroom; movies for all ages; excellent wifi; a grill on the deck. The concierge service was very responsive when we needed some extra supplies.
Highly recommended!View Full Review
Very nice room, owners easy to work with.
Gretchen from Milton Freewater, United States

We had a large family ski trip and this room worked out well for one family's stay. We love staying at the aspens, love the ski valet and the location within easy walking distance to the upper and lower villages. They had alot of hooks for hanging up wet/damp ski clothes-we don't have that in our time share at the aspens. Everything in the room just seemed to be useful and in working condition. The view was good, we could see when family came & went from the ski hill or the pool! Katie & Bob had everything ready for our stay including a concierge and our code to get in the room, along with helpful hints & instructions for using the room and leaving at the end of our stay. We will return to this unit again!View Full Review

Very quick and informative replies. Clear, logical instructions for arrival, stay and departure. Helpful concierge service provided as part of our package. Cooked up a Roast Christmas dinner with the facilities. Comfortable bedding. We did find the unit to be hot and stuffy, never considered the gas fireplace at all, even after turning the thermostat to the lowest setting. The unit is well located to Blackcomb Mountain (unfortunately icy due to poor snow cover). Definitely would stay here again and to recommend to family and friends.View Full Review

Excellent budget accommodation at The Aspens.
Kevin from Port Coquitlam, Canada
Date: Aug-11-2014 for a stay in Aug 2014
We have stayed at the Aspens many times. We like this condo on the pool view side of the building. The kitchen gets 4-stars because it has a narrow 3-ft wide galley but is well equipped with everything in working order. Many condos at The Aspens are renovated and can charge a bit more but this condo is excellent value for a suite with the original kitchen, bathroom and dcor. Excellent WiFi, BBQ, air conditioning in master BR and location. Bed is decent but a bit firm. Good communication from Bob and helpful guest info in the suite. We did not make use of the concierge service but believe this to be nice value added for a newbie to Whistler. Would stay here again due to the location, view, air conditioning and value for a weekly rate in the summer.View Full Review
Comfortable and quiet unit
John from Bellingham, United States
Date: Jul-17-2014 for a stay in Jul 2014
My wife and I have stayed at several units in the Aspens both summer and winter and have been pleased with all of them. This unit has a nice view over the pool to the mountains on the west side of the valley. It is quiet, clean, nicely appointed and the king bed is comfortable. It also has WiFi, which is not in the description. It is ski-in-ski out during the winter and bike-in-bike out during the summer. The Lost Lake mountain bike trails are a few minutes away by bike.
My only complaint is that the bike storage room is absolutely packed (mostly with dusty rarely-used or abandoned bikes) so bike parking was a challenge.
We look forward to our next visit.View Full Review Owner Has Responded
You don't have to be able to ski
Adrian and Margaret Foster from New Zealand
We are a non skiing couple in our late 50s who love to walk in woods and alpine areas during spring and summer. We spent three very enjoyable days in Whistler in June 2011 and were completely satisfied with the facilities at The aspens on Blackcomb. Bob and Katie's condo is beautifully appointed and maintained, with a fully equipped kitchen which enabled us to self-cater. The aspens is in a quiet location, yet well-planned walkways mean that all the village amenities are a short walk away. There is also a very handy group of shops and restaurants a couple of minutes walk away in the Upper Village area, and near the chairlift entry point known as Blackcomb Base. One of best features of this condo is the sheltered balcony off the living room which looks over the pool complex to the mountains, a fantastic spot at any time of the day. We did several of the well signposted walks around the town and were lucky enough to see a bear near the closest golf course. We highly recommend this condo to everyone and we plan to return someday.

reedywoman from Seattle, Washington
Location, location this condo is excellent for ski on ski off accessability to Blackcomb and Whistler. The owners obviously care about their condo, everything is well cared for and cozy comfortable. The pool & hot tub are convenient, clean and in a lovely location for mountain viewing at the end of the day. The short walk to Whistler Village is ideal for shopping and dining. You have the peace and quiet at night but the fun & excitement is very close by. You won't regret a week or two at this lovely spot.
helga from ontario
the condo itself was lovely and super convenient, however, given the time of year, nothing 'touristy' at the resort was open.. no golf anywhere. we couldn't even rent a bicycle. the bobsled course was available to view and that was just a great place to visit. the zip lines were also open, and the 'jeep' tours. overall, the village was great with alot of restaurants offering good values, considering the time of year. hank goodness for the pool and hottub.
We love this ski-in/ski-off condo!!
crocodilerider from seattle, washington
My husband and I have now stayed in this same condo for four years in a row on our vacations to Whistler. It is pretty much perfect. The condo itself is clean and cozy. There is a great outdoor pool and three hot tubs. The building has a ski valet, so you don't have to worry about storing your ski's at night. And best of all it is right at the base of Blackcomb so you basically get to ski right out the door to the lift in the morning and then ski right home at the end of the day. The other nice thing about the location of this condo is that is an easy walk to the village so you don't have to get in your car the whole time you are there. Basically, I can't say enough about this place. The price is always great and the owners seem like they are really friendly and accommodating. If you are planning a vacation to Whistler I would for sure check to see if this place is available.
