 Local Tips

My Money Saving Tips

My biggest money saving tips Visit in November, early December, January, and May to September. The valley is as beautiful as ever, with not quite so many visitors, lots of things to do and it costs LESS!

On a Personal Note

Our favourite season in Whistler and why. OK, we are addicted. We love them all: Winter for the skiing and boarding, Spring for the spring snow and biking in the valley. Summer for nature"s beauty - the valley and mountains are majestic. Fall for the last grasp of that beauty, golfing, biking, hiking, go for walks, just enjoy The Gables patio, or the dinners with friends.
What makes Whistler so special and unique? We love the mountains, the wide valley, the options: go natural or go luxury! Go outdoors or stay cozy by the fire or go to the nightlife! "Whistler is number one for an abundance of reasons: The abundance of snow, the abundance of terrain, the abundance of diversity, and the abundance of likeminded people who enjoy mountain life," says Rob Boyd, Olympian, Coach, Whistler Freeride Team member, and long time Whistler resident.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is best about your location?

Are you as close to the lifts as some ski-in ski-outs? The walking distance from Gables to the Blackcomb lifts is about 3 minutes. To the ski run down to the Whistler lifts, it is about 4 minutes.
Is The Gables more quiet than the village accomodation? Yes, it is more secluded, separate from the village yet right next to it. There are no other complexes right beside us, and there are big spaces between our buildings compared to those in the village.
Are you close to restaurants? The nearest restaurants are only about a 3 minute walk. All the restaurants in the Blackcomb Benchlands and in Whistler Village are an easy walk from The Gables, and you don't have to walk uphill to get home after dinner like you do on most of the Benchlands.

Check In Check Out Times

What are the Check In and Check Out times? Check In is 4 PM or later. Check Out is 10 AM or earlier.
Can I check in earlier? If there is a guest staying the night before you arrive, it is usually difficult to allow for early check in. If no one immediately precedes you, we can sometimes provide early check in. Please feel free to ask. We must confirm with our housekeeping services before we can provide early check in.
Can I check out later? If there is a guest checking in the day you leave, it is usually difficult to allow for late check out. If no one immediately follows you, we can sometimes provide late check out. Please feel free to ask. We must confirm with our housekeeping services before we can provide late check out.

What restaurants do you recommend for children?

Restaurants for children Carumba, Earls, Milestones, and Old Spaghetti Factory
Less expensive Restaurants Chef Bernard by the Chateau Whistler, Carumba, Earls, Uli's at Creekside
Fine Dining Rim Rock Cafe. Take a cab. It's well worth the short ride.

Should we rent a car?

We are flying into Vancouver Airport...do we need to rent a car? You will not need a car once you arrive at The Gables, as it is an easy walk to almost everything. For info on transportation from the Vancouver airport to Whistler, go to the Allura homepage, click Guest Services.
We like the drive from Vancouver to Whistler. Would it be as good on a bus? There are several ways to get to Whistler...car rental, limo, private 4x4 service, minivans that can be reserved, in some cases shared with others arriving at the same time as you. Check these web pages: Bus: http://www.perimeterbus.com/express.html Private limo or minivan www.whistlerstarexpress.com Helicopter www.helijet.com

How to Compare Prices

How does The Gables location compare to the ski-in ski-out condos on the upper benchlands? All are perfect for access to the lifts. The Gables has an added advantage of being closer to the village and the Chateau Whistler so you can walk right there in two or three minutes, and you don't have to walk home uphill after dinner.

How to Save Money

What is the best deal for lunch? Pack a lunch to take up the mountain with you. There are plastic containers and bags in our kitchen, as well as a backpack in the front closet for you to take up the mountain. The next best deal is Chick Pea Restaurant on Whistler Mountain. Get there 11:30 or 11:45 to get a table.
How can we save money on a ski trip? Plan your trip for late November, early December, January or April. Share the condo with another family, provided your total numbers are 6 or less. Use our well equipped kitchen or our barbeque. The grocery stores have extensive pre-packaged dinners to choose from, to save your cooking time. In Peak Ski times, purchase discount lift tickets from Allura. For other times of the year, buy an Express card from the lift company.

Is there a hot tub?

Our guests love the hot tubs and spa at Meadow Park, the best place in the valley for soothing water! Meadow Park is a first class facility, about 5 minutes from The Gables by car or taxi. It has a six-lane pool plus hot tubs, sauna, a steam room, a whirlpool and a separate young children's wading pool. It is a beautiful complex, spacious and open with big windows to the outdoors. There is also an indoor skating rink, squash courts and a fitness centre in the building.

 About Us

We are a Vancouver family and have owned Whistler property for 17 years. We love The Gables, both summer and winter, because of its privacy and ideal location. Every guest is very important to us, and we pride ourselves on making your stay comfortable. Please feel free to contact us by phone or email at any time.
