Luxury townhouse, 4 bedroom, 4 bath, 1930 sq ft, walk to lifts & village
About Tom Lauga
At Whistler, we love having the great opportunities to ski, hike, bike, golf, swim and yet, be able to go to great restaurants and events in the village. It's a pleasure for us to see our guests have a great time at Whistler.
Tom Lauga purchased this Townhouse in 2000
Why Tom Lauga chose Upper Village
We chose this location because it is walking distance to most things and, yet; it is still a quiet area. It's close to the village but not in the night time noise of the village centre. We find that once we arrive, we don't use our car very often.

Great location with great amenities
Our stay at Snowbird 101 in Whistler Upper Village was delightful. The place was roomy & well-appointed, the beds comfy, the baths (showers especially) clean & open, & the kitchen was very well-stocked with herbs & spices & equipment. Thanks!
This is a beautiful property and very well furnished. Tom the owner was very helpful. I highly recommend.
Thanks for the review and for taking your time to write it.
Stayed here for a week with 2 families of 4. Plenty of room for everyone. Very high end finishes. Heated floors in all bathrooms and even laundry room. Upstairs bedroom is very small with a twin and trundle, and not much space. But, queen sleeper sofa in upstairs den worked great. All other bedrooms are very spacious. 4 full baths accommodated everyone. Tried to ski out, but trail goes uphill at points and crosses the street, so it was easier to walk (about 10 mins) or ride the bus which drops off right out front. Never tried to ski in, but looks like it would involve walking and removing skiis as well. Convenient to everything. Would highly recommend!
Home away from home!
We just returned from our 6-night stay in Whistler. We had our extended family along (3 kids, 5 adults) and the condo was a great fit - we used all 4 bedrooms along with the sofa bed in the upstairs landing for the third kid. The property was recently renovated and everything is exceptionally well done. Tom, the host, was super helpful and responsive throughout the process and in many years of ski vacations, we have never had a more well-stocked condo. In terms of constructive feedback, the only thing from our family is that most of the mattresses were very firm - the pickiest sleepers took the room with the twin beds which were softer and we all made out ok.
The location is pretty convenient. The #5 bus stop is right at the end of the driveway which runs to both base areas (and the village). As for ski-in/ski-out, it took us a little experimentation and technically it's ski-walk-ski both going and coming, but overall still fairly easy to access Blackcomb base. You can exit through the parking garage to a trail that will head across Spearhead Dr and then down a long-ish traverse to the base. For the way back, there is a similar path that starts just below the cedar creek condos (and maybe 20-30 yds uphill from the path down to the slopes). Ski that as far as you can - you will end up skirting Spearhead Pl and have to stop and take your skis off where it joins Spearhead Dr. Walk diagonally across Spearhead Dr towards the bus stop and you should see one of the blue trail signs nearby. This will take you straight back to where you started - the way back in is actually easier than the way out with very little poling required.
It was a pleasure to host this lovely family in our townhouse. The detailed observations were appreciated; they painted a useful picture for future guests. We look forward to welcoming this family again.
Great Place to Stay in the Upper Village Area
We spent 6 nights at this property during a skiing vacation. Although we were new to the Whistler area, the Upper Village where the property is located seemed to be the place to be, as with the new Blackcomb gondola, it was a much quicker way up the mountain in the morning.
The property itself is exceptional. In 30 years of going to various areas and renting various properties, this one was the most well-stocked ever. Enough dishes, utensils, and anything else for a large party. 4 bedrooms, each with their own bathroom made it much easier than a situation where everybody is fighting over a hot shower at the end of a long day.
Tom, the host, made the experience go without a hitch. From directions on how to get from the airport to a multi-page introduction to the property and the Whistler area went well beyond what one expects.
Finally, although we had a car, we found the bus, which stopped right outside the unit, to be a fast and convenient way to get around. No need for a car, as the major parts of the Whistler village and the Upper Village are just minutes away.
Superb, state of the art accommodation! Everything you need is there.
We stayed from 29th Dec 2018 to 9th January 2019. It was our first time in Whistler. There were 7 of us staying: 4 adults and 3 children. The four bedrooms and four bathrooms of which two were ensuite were perfect. The two separate lounge areas (one with the fire place and another one upstairs) ensured that everyone could have some quiet moments. There were also a TV in both master bedrooms and in each lounge. Furthermore, there was a separate laundry room with a washing machine and dryer which made it very easy to keep up with the washing! The house was beautifully decorated and had everything we required for our stay (including full cutlery, crockery, pots and pans, cooking equipment, bath towels). It was great to have the fireplace on our return from skiing. We were always warm and cosy, and appreciated the heated bathroom floors. The host, Tom, has been a wonderful person to deal with. He always answered all our queries promptly and was a reliable, honest and trustworthy person. He came on our first day to introduce himself and ensure we had everything we needed. He also contacted us once during our stay to get our feedback on the accommodation. The only suggestion was to have spare towels for the hot tub. The next day, he brought us 6 extra towels!
The location was also ideal as there is a free bus shuttle stop in front of the property. It took us 5 minutes to be on the slopes in the morning which was ideal for the youngest of the kids (7 and 9 year old). We drove to the village to do our shopping at IGA, however, but the walk to the village was only about 15 minutes.
If we are going back to Whistler, we would definitely rent this property again. It worked so well for our two families!!!
It's a pleasure for us to see that our guests had a good experience during their stay at our townhouse.
