Pros: One of the few real ski in/out sites in Whistler. Quieter location than properties right in the Village.
Cons: There was only ever one front desk person and she was so overworked. You have to line up at the desk for everything--first, when you arrive and need a card to get into the parking garage; to get a key to get into the pool, etc. Having to wait after a long trip at the front desk, while others check in or get problems resolved, just to get your car into the garage is a real hassle. They need better staffing up front.
The elevators are woefully in adequate for the size of the complex--it'll take forever to get one on the morning, when everyone's heading out to ski. It might be fine in the summer, when taking the stairs is an option, but it's not an option to walk down 4 flights of stairs in ski boots. And I wonder about their maintenance--a staff member told us she'd been stuck in the elevator for 4 hours on Christmas Day. If I were to stay here again, I would only consider a ground floor unit.
You pay for parking here. I almost never pay when I rent a condo in Whistler Village or Village North, but for some reason the Blackcomb properties usually charge.
Neutral: if you need groceries or want to walk to dinner, you'll either need to take the bus or walk up and down about 200 yards of ski slope. There's no real grocery at Blackcomb so you need to walk about 15 minutes to the one in Whistler (or bus). So this unit is best for people that load up on groceries and are planning on staying in at night, or who don't mind being further from stores and restaurants.
