Lake Placid Lodge is right at the foot of the famous Dave Murray Downhill run - used for the Men's Downhill racing in the 2010 Winter Olympics
You can see where the CREEKSIDE area is on the bottom right hand side of the map. The gondola at Creekside generally has shorter line-ups than the ones in the Whistler Village.
An easy right hand turn off of the main HWY 99 (the red line) and you are there. That's it, no complicated directions.

Welcome to the Lake Placid Lodge, the perfect ski in ski out location ( or biking , golfing, watersport, training, fishing or just relaxing), situated in the best kept secret of Whistler - at the base of Creekside gondola. The Best Restaurant in Whistler #1 Red Door Bistro, #2 Rim Rock Café & #4 Creekbread (Trip Advisor rating 2018) are located in Creekside (walking distance from our condo - but plan ahead & make your reservation). You do not want to drive from Vancouver - take the shuttle bus Sea to Sky and get off in front of Lake Placid Lodge.

From Whistler Creekside Village Web Site
"Whistler Creekside is the home of a multi-million dollar refurbishment which has revitalized this once original Whistler base into a thriving convenient alternative to Whistler's main Village. Creekside Village has all the amenities you'll need including shopping, services, dining, accommodation and skiing all within steps of each other in a pedestrian-friendly setting. Known as the 'convenient village' you will find all your needs covered.
"Whistler's Creekside is steeped in history. As the original base of Whistler Mountain and site of the first gondola, the 'Creek', as locals call it, is a laid-back, family kind of place that is only 7 kilometres from the hustle and bustle of the main Village
Reviews from Past Guest's
- Kitchen is one of the best-stocked we have used at the lodge!
- Lyne, the property owner was extremely pleasant, great to communicate and easy to make arrangement with- very responsive. And a responsive owner make a big difference and usually indicates a property which is being cared for. The place was as described, clean, and well taken care of. It had plenty of utensils, pans etc.in the kitchen. I have stayed at other Lake Placid units in the past plenty of times and would not hesitate to go back to Lyne's. Thanks for a pleasant stay.

This was a very nice flat for our family of four. It is spacious and has a well provisioned kitchen. Comfortable beds. Nice bathroom. Lots of cookware and dishes. A lot of basics were there - like oil, salt, pepper, coffee. The location is fabulous. So convenient to have both the market and the gondola just across the street.View Full Review Owner Has Responded

We had an excellent stay at the Lake Placid Lodge. This rental was clean and well appointed. The best part is the location, which absolutely cannot be beat. This was our first time at Whistler and being less than a 5 minute walk from the Creekside gondola was a huge perk. I'd absolutely stay here again!View Full Review Owner Has Responded

We welcome you to Whistler, Canada.
We are the proud owner of the property since May 2014.
We have been visiting Whistler almost yearly for the past eight years and discovered both the convenience of Creekside and amenities of Lake Placid Lodge on our second visit and have been returning ever since After renting a condo in Lake Placid Lodge, we have decided to buy one so we can enjoy it on longer stays (combining fun / work) and have the pleasure of renting it.
Whistler is one of the most beautiful places in the world. The snow never fails you...when other parts of the world don’t get snow we ALWAYS have too much of it. It is now ranked as the BEST ski resort in North America.
Our home away from home is at Creekside, the most popular place to stay...as its has access to both mountains, right from your front door, no need for a car when you get there...Creekside is quiet at night.
The home is beautifully decorated, with the finest of everything you might need, a full kitchen, espresso maker, coffee grinder, crockpot,gas fireplace, outdoor year round heated pool, hot- tub and sauna, patio BBQ and lounge chair (summer time), free underground secure parking, ski locker, high-speed internet (WIFI), flat screen TV and cable……
Please call me for any questions or email....
