We and our two kids had enjoyed our stay at Evolution and can recommend these condos with some important reservations. Fellow travelers should be well aware of the negatives first: if you expect ski-in and ski-out and / or lift side property, this is not the place. The walk with your skis is not a long one certainly (less than 100 yards). You can ski in even closer on the right side of The Legends lodge at the base of Creekside gondola and with a few bumps of watery snow you will be within 50 yards. Be aware by the way that Whistler is essentially a "suburb" resort - it is so close to Vancouver that city denizens go to ski there on their weekends and a lot take Friday off as well. So the lifts are very crowded Friday and Saturday. About Creekside for those new to Whistler (and we were): it is a very small, quiet and not very attractive village, quite distant from Whistler: taxi ride is 15 CAD, and the bus is 2.50 for adult and 2 CAD for a child. Adult bus tickets can be purchased at the Legends (location of a bus stop as well). The ride will take 10-15 minutes depending on time of the day. The service is reasonably frequent (every 10-20 minutes). There is no direct service to Blackomb base. You will need to change the bus at the bus loop of Whistler. Ski school at Creekside has serious disadvantages for those with children (relative to Whistler and Blackomb): they do not offer private lessons for beginners and only offer 3 days adventure camp rather than 5 days like main locations. They do offer two days extension but they do not guarantee the same teacher for the extension days. Also be aware that if you register you kids to ski school online, you still have to line up to get their vouchers and ski lift tickets prior to bringing them to ski school. The line is unlikely to be long but somehow it still takes forever. I guess one of the main problems there is that they do not prepare vouchers and tickets for those who paid on line in advance but still keep looking into their computers and print them out as you wait. Tickets are old style - not your Vail e-cards.
The supermarket is very convenient for the Evolution (less than 5 minutes walk) and the selection is reasonably impressive but we did not manage to buy typical things our kids particularly enjoy (specific kind of yogurt or drinks that are very common in any US supermarket).
Negatives on the lodge itself: it is great that it is a pet friendly lodge but if you have the slightest allergies to pets you are in trouble. No matter how well the staff cleans the rooms you will be sneezing and red-eyeing all week long. They do not seem to separate pet-friendly from pet free rooms. There is no concierge or staffed lobby desk at the Evolution - all services are provided by the desk at - you guessed it - The Legends. So if you arrive with lots of skis and bags, you are welcome to push your trolley that is conveniently available at the lobby. The elevators have to be the slowest on earth as well. The rooms are somehow getting way too warm at night, and opening small windows does not really help. There is an acceptable set of utensils at the kitchen but - as seems to be a perennial problem with these lodges the world over - the knives need good sharpening. There is no restaurant at this lodge and in general most good restaurants are NOT at Creekside but in Whistler village. The exception is a Creekbread pizza restaurant at Creekside - less than 5 minutes walk from the lodge.
Nevertheless on the balance this was a great vacation and the lodge is very good. One bedroom suite is very well designed, the bathroom and rooms are very comfortable. While Creekside has clear shortcomings, there are clear advantages: it is by far not as crowded, the skiing of the Whistler mountain on the Creekside is amazing, and the access to other sides and to Blackcomb mountain is very convenient. Kids loved the mountain.
