“Clean, quiet condo on Blackcomb”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012

Much has already been written about Wildwood Lodge, and I don't have any enlightening comments to add in general. We stayed in unit 201, and found it clean, in good repair, and livable for our party of 5. So instead of reviewing the complex, here are some details about 201:
The master bedroom has plenty of storage (2 dressers, closet), a TV and no DVD. The master bath has the deep tub and shower. To turn on the shower, pull the ring under the faucet. The other bedroom has a HUGE bunk bed structure that all but fills the room. The bottom bed is a queen, and the top bunk is a double. 4 could sleep comfortably here, but there is almost no room to move around. Storage is limited to 2 narrow drawers and the closet (which cant be opened when the room door is open) and the hanging rack on the wall.
The bathroom has a walk in shower and toilet, with the sink outside. Younger kids would probably love the fort opportunities presented by the beds, but our young adults travelers only had room to sleep and step over each other's stuff.

The main area includes a really handy alcove for storing ski stuff (or whatever). It's big,and out of the way.

The kitchen is well equipped. I'm not saying the knives are great or that the cookware is the best, just that there's plenty of everything. Oddly, there's not a lot of room for storing lots of food, if you're cooking in, unless you want to move the dishes to higher, less accessible shelves and put the food there.

There are seats for 6....3 at the bar, and 3 at the table, unless you move the table.

The living area is comfortable, with seats for 5....3 on the couch, which would be cozy, and then 2 arm chairs. DVD and TV work well. The CD player is in the large closet, and needs almost no volume to be easily heard throughout the condo.

The balcony overlooks the front door and the lighted path to the Fairmont and the Blackcomb lifts.

We skied from the path (immediately across the road from the front door) all the way to the Blackcomb lifts, in about 5 minutes. There's just enough downhill tilt to ski out, not enough to board, and of course, its up hill to go back to the condo. It's an easy walk. Our pattern was to ski to Blackcomb and either ski there or take the Village Run to Whistler. Walking all the way to Whistler with ski/board equipment or waiting for the shuttle was too much hassle.

The bus is supposed to come every 10 minutes on the 4s (4 past, 14 past, 24 past) but at peak times the buses were full and wouldn't stop (the bus stop is one of the last ones on the #5 route) or they wouldn't come on the schedule. I recommend getting to Blackcomb and using the lift system to get to Whistler. You could even take the Blackcomb lifts up to the Peak to Peak, go across to the Whistler roundhouse, and come down from there if you had people in your party who wanted to take the very long, very scenic route.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

This is our 4th stay in Whistler, 3rd during the winter season. This is our first time staying at Blackcomb.
We stayed in condo 201 and it was in very good shape. Two small bedrooms, the master has a queen and a separate bath with a tub/shower. The other bedroom as a queen bed with a double bunk turned 90 degrees over the lower bed. Freshly painted, granite counters, two TVs, gas fireplace and a small balcony.
A ski room is located downstairs to lock up your boards and skis. The only issue was wifi, it was weak and from another unit. Worked in the living room but not the bedrooms. This was a nice place especially for the price. The bus stop for the Whistler-Blackcomb shuttle is at the front door, our you can cross the street and ski the gentle slope to the Blackcomb base (see more about the #5 bus below).

Now for Blackcomb, we will probably not come back to the Blackcomb side, we prefer Whistler Village. Getting back and forth, especially with ski gear or in the rain (late Dec.!) is a pain. A shuttle bus (#5) runs a loop between Blackcomb accommodations and the Whistler base. The problem is that the bus always seems to be full and doesn't sem to run on time. After waiting 15 minutes we ended up walking to Whistler.

If you want to save money, or you prefer skiing Blackcomb this is the place for you. If you want shops, bars etc. then the village is preferred.

We stayed in a condo (217) in Wildwood Lodge. The condo was great and situated in a clean and well looked after Lodge. The communal facilities were great, secure bike/ski lock up and a nice pool and hottub.

The lodge was approx a five minute walk from the main village and ski lifts are even closer.

Would go again tomorrow.

We stayed in one of the apartments at Wildwood for a two-week ski holiday and were impressed overall. The layout suited us well (two double bedrooms and an upstairs loft for six people) and was very comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped and bathrooms clean and tidy but very small.

Location is everything at Whistler, and the lodge is situated just over the road from one of the access paths that takes you directly to the base of Blackcomb mountain which means that its only a 2 min walk/ski (the path is mostly flat) to the lifts. There is also a bus stop directly outside which takes you into Blackcomb and Whistler village. To be sure, there are more conveniently located ski-in-ski-out hotels closer to the village, but most will find this adequate.

The public spa is excellent after a hard day's skiing and a great place to meet people from different places. There is a ski locker room that is accessed by a code - convenient if people are coming back at different times so no one needs a key.

The only inconveniences were inadequate lighting in the lounge and bedrooms - a bit of a pain to read in the evening, and cleaning staff who mistakenly took our personal facecolths...and brought them back bleached!

All in all, a really well setup apartment which was perfect for our time skiing.
