Blackcomb Benchlands... The best way to be close to the Village and yet have some privacy and quiet. We are on the corner of Blackcomb Way and Painted Cliff Road. A free bus comes by our place every 8 minutes and can take you to the lifts or village.  It is a pleasant 10-15 minute walk to the village.  We are a short walk away from Lost Lake as well.

About Us

We bought our place in 1991, when our daughter was 2 years old. We were looking for vacation property, and decided on Whistler because it is an all-season resort. We now have 3 daughters, all of whom play soccer. We live in Vancouver, and soccer is played all winter, thus our family uses our place more in the summer. We love it for swimming at the lakes, and cycling with our kids. Our children have been attending ski school since they were very young, and love the holidays we take in the Spring to brush up on our skiing. Our eldest is taking up snowboarding, and Marc and I like to sneak off for some cross-country skiing as well as downhill. Marc is a Sports Physiotherapist and his training comes in very handy after a day on the slopes!
