On The Piste Next To Blackcomb Base, Ski To The Lift To Access Both Mountains
My wife and I had our honeymoon in Whistler in 1997 and fell in love with the village. We returned with our first child 9 years later when he was 4yrs old and continued to return annually with our children. We have used our unit for many years. Our children all learned to ski here from when they were 3-4 years old and are all now very good skiers thanks to Whistler kids ski school program but more recently through the 'ride tribe' program for teenagers.
Brendan purchased this Condo in 2000
Why Brendan chose Upper Village
We spotted the Aspens when on honeymoon in 1997 and came back to buy our unit due to its unique ski in ski out position on Blackcomb mountain. It is ideal for families or those who may not wish to eat out every night. The hot tubs are in an exceptional setting right next to the piste. The position on Blackcomb mountain allows you to access the whole Whistler / Blackcomb terrain from outside your door. You can avoid the longer queues at Whistler base and Ski Blackcomb or alternatively get the new Gondola up to the peak to peak gondola and then across to Whistler The Benchlands area were the Aspens is situated is quieter than the village which is a 5 min free bus ride away or a 7 min stroll on a lit path through the woods and across Fitzsimmons Creek. It is positioned right next to the Chateau Whistler which allows general public access to their bars and restaurants which is a 2 min walk away.
What makes this Condo unique
Convenience for skiing and ski school, nice sized units, ideal for families or couples, great pool and hot tubs. Walk to town, beautiful Chateau whistler shopping, dining, bar and Spa next door. Quieter than the village but convenient access to it

Nice, clean, quiet, just what we needed!
It was our second stay at the Aspens (first time we were there a year ago in Aug 2018). The building is in walk distance (5 minutes away from Whistler Blackcomb), but still keeps you away from the village quite loud life; pool and open hot tub are clean and secured. Upon arrival, we found local magazines with ongoing events nearby waiting for us on a tea table which was pretty cool for us because we haven't had big plans and hoped for our improvisation. Owner of the property is a very responsive and insightful person, thank you for organizing our second trip and paying continuous attention to residents' reviews, and making thing better each time! Next time, we'll be visiting Whistler in Winter!
Overall Great location and great property
A Great Place to Stay!
This condo is comfortable, clean and quiet and the location is perfect for anything you might like to do in the area. There is an extra nominal fee for parking, which we missed in the fine print, but we were happy to have a secure place to park and secure storage for our bikes. The owner, Brendan, is extremely responsive to any questions and he clearly takes great pride in ensuring his guests have a great experience, which we certainly did! We will definitely choose to stay here again!
We had a great time in Whistler and the spot was very convenient. Parking and bike storage was secure too.
Many thanks for your review
We are really pleased you enjoyed your stay.
Please come back again

Had a lovely time.
Had a lovely time. Great location, easy walk to main village... but quiet for sleeping at night.
Great Location and Nice Place
My partner and I really enjoyed our time at the Aspens in the condo. The unit was well equipped for cooking and we were able to have 4 meals prepared throughout the week. Two minor critiques. One, the mattress was a little lumpy and likely should be replaced in the near future. Second, it would have been nice to have a few more towels / washcloths on hand. Outside that, the unit was really nice, quite convenient and we had a great time. Thanks Brendan!
Thanks for the feedback Thomas.
We will review the mattress situation. I assume you mean the main bedroom? The sofabed mattress is new.
The Aspens is located at the base of Blackcomb mountain. Ski from the complex doorstep down (100yds) to the chairlifts with direct access up Blackcomb mountain or Ski across to Whistler mountain via 1 chairlift. You can access the whole ski area from the Aspens complex.
Ski school is also on your doorstep. Local restaurants and shops no more than 100 metres away. Our unit is newly renovated with granite worksurfaces and new appliances.
