Great place to stay!

Thought it was a great place, especially for the price. Very close to Creekside gondola. Would definitely recommend if you're looking to save some money and don't want to stay in Whistler.

About Us

We are avid skiers living and working in Washington State.  Our condominium is privately owned and we decided to share our ski place with guests who are looking for a more personal experience than hotels can offer.  We selected our vacation home based on its access to the mountain and the less commercial atmosphere of Creekside.  Creekside is the original home of the Garibaldi Lift Company, the first lifts on Whistler Mountain and the 2010 Olympic and ParaOlympic Alpine events.
