 Location & Map

Location

Possibly the best slopeside location in Whistler. The Aspens on Blackcomb is located in the Upper Village, just up the slope from the Wizard Express high speed chair lift. Our suite is on the slope side of the Aspens. The ski school and Blackcomb Day Lodge are extremely close, making after-skiing pick up of children very convenient.

The Upper Village is favoured by those who want proximity to all Village attractions, while staying in a quieter neighbourhood. The Upper Village has a great selection of boutiques, ski shops, cafes, restaurants and bars, but the Village is only a pleasant 10 minute walk away. Lost Lake is also within walking distance.

Once you arrive at the Aspens you do not require a car, everything you need is accessible on foot.

At the base of Blackcomb Mountain, across the road from the Chateau Whistler Hotel, is a small gourmet grocery store, with a very good selection of food items, dairy and produce. Use this store for last minute items without going to the larger IGA supermarket in Village North. Link: http://www.uppervillagemarket.com/

 Local Tips

Frequently Asked Questions

Check in/check out

Can I have an early check in/late check out? Please contact us a week or so before arrival. We will try to accommodate you, subject to other guests leaving/arriving the same day.
I will be arriving late in the day, is that a problem? No. We will have E-mailed you your personal code to open the door to the suite, which is all you need to get in. If the front desk is closed when you arrive, so that you cannot get a key card for the gate to the underground parking, you can park outside the gate if there is space or send a passenger round to open the gate from the inside. Parking tickets are obtained from a vending machine just inside the lobby door.
I will be leaving early in the day, is that a problem. No. The night before you leave, just make sure to return to the front desk everything you have borrowed from them, such as pool towels, pool deck key fob, etc.

Beds

Can the king bed be split in two? Sorry, no.
Can the twin beds be put together? Yes. Please ask if you would like them made up that way for you. No charge.

Location

How far is it to the ski slope? From the suite, if you go down the stairs, about 30 yards from the outside door to the ski slope. From there it is only 150 yards down to the Upper Village and the Wizard Express chairlift. You can see the base of the Wizard Express from the suite. In other words, you are very close.
Can I ski back to the Aspens? Yes, except possibly very late in the season. Coming down the mountain, follow the signs to the Upper Village, and look for the Aspens on the right just before you get to the base. From the Upper Village, you can ride the short Magic chairlift up and ski down to the Aspens.

Noise

How quiet is the suite? Mostly very quiet. The suite is on the top floor, at the end of a corridor, at the opposite end of the building from the parking loop, and on the inside of the courtyard away from beeping grooming machines. Sometimes there is some noise from the courtyard, but the hot tubs and pool are closed at 10:30pm.
