Location & Map
This is where you want to be!! The Benchlands surround the base of Blackcomb ski runs. You literally walk out of the ski locker, cross the street, put on your skis, and ski down to the lifts. The Marquise is a six storey concrete building with incredible views above the lower wood-frame developments around us. It's a two minute walk from the Fairmont Chateau Whistler, tennis courts, and Chateau Golf Course, and a comfortable less than ten minute walk to the town center. If you're tired, lazy, or cold, a free shuttle service stops right in front of the building.

My wife and I used to live in Whistler back in the mid 90's...yup...right when snowboarding was first coming of age. That was a while ago now.
At that time, we both had evening jobs in the service industry and all our funds and energies went into boarding. It was our life. It was there in Whistler where we both knew that one day, if we could make it happen, no matter where we lived, we would purchase a condo in Whistler. We never wanted to lose that feeling that Whistler provides (both on and off the mountain). Kinda corny sounding but if you have been, you probably know what I mean.
Fast forward to present day. Though we now live in Vancouver, we made good on our commitment to purchase a condo in Whistler. We love it, we use it all the time and hope you too enjoy it.
great stay in pikas penthouse
Lucy from Charlottesville, United States
Date: Jan-02-2015 for a stay in Dec 2014
We had a really good stay in Pikas Penthouse and I would highly recommend it. The place is very clean and modern, beautifully furnished and has all amenities you could need. It is especially good for a couple with a child as the loft is very fun and they have a great TV set up with Hulu and netflix. The owners were very responsive and bent over backwards to give us a great trip over the holidays and added some extras that our child enjoyed. The Marquise building is very convenient for skiing at Whistler Blackcomb, you can walk/ski to and from the lifts plus there is a bus stop out side. The only strange thing during our stay was that the building had moved to keyless entry for common areas which is great, except you had to type in a 10 digit code for each door, it would be easier if they could make the code a little shorter! All in all a great property and great stay though.View Full Review
