Whistler Creekside (sometimes referred to as Whistler Creek or just Creekside) is the first sign of civilization and commercial activity you'll see as you enter Whistler from the South on Highway 99.
Whistler Creekside is approximately 7 kms (or a 5-7 min drive) from the main Village area. Creekside has it's own gondola that takes you midway up Whistler mountain where you can then catch the Big Red chairlift to the main Roundhouse Lodge. From here, you can ride down into the main Village if you wish.
When not travelling by way of skis or snowboard you can either drive to the Village or catch the local bus. Service is quite regular (at least every 15 minutes) and inexpensive (as of Sep 2009 it was $2 cash fare).
There is a large selection of Whistler Creekside accommodation. Options range from a hostel to hotels and plenty of vacation rentals. Owner-direct vacation rentals usually provide the best value as you skip middle agent fees and commissions and get more space and kitchen facilities for making your own meals.
Over 40 Whistler Creekside vacation rental condos and townhomes are available for rental through this site. These include ski in/out condos such as Gondola Village and Lake Placid Lodge, large luxury homes at the Taluswood development and many more.
Whistler Creekside features winter mountain access via gondola and is usually less busy than the main Village with shorter lines. You can also pick up your discount Whistler lift tickets, Whistler ski and snowboard rentals and take ski school lessons out of Creekside.
