If you like the convenience of a ski in/out mountainside condo then the Aspens on Blackcomb is an ideal place to stay. We stayed in a 2 bedroom top floor unit (5th floor) that offers partial views of the runs and was very quiet. There is a rental shop on-site which we found to be excellent. You can roll out of bed, have some breakfast, pick up your skiis at the valet, walk over to the ski run and ski down to the lift line! During our visit we had fresh snow with over 20" the night before our last day of skiing! We traded our skiis (which you can do as often as you like) for powder models and had a blast on 7th Heaven which had plenty of the deep stuff. After skiing we'd hit one of the three hotubs -- there's also a swimming pool. This is a condominium resort with a mix of renters & owners that is well run, well kept and very convenient in that it is the first propery up the hill from Chateau Whistler and other hotels, restaurants and businesses. You can walk down for a meal or do a little shopping or wak another 10 minutes and be in the heart of Whistler Village which is a very magical place -- particularly when there is fresh snow. The only aspect of staying at the Aspens is there is no restaurant so you need to bring/buy supplies to take advantage of staying in a condo. Lastly, it's also worth noting that 1 & 2 bedroom condos are modest in size so if you have a large party that ski, that there is no dedicated space to dry damp clothing, gloves & boots. The trick I discovered was to use one of the fans stored in the closet to dry my boots & gloves right away. I'd lay my boots on the floor in the bedroom propped up a bit with my gloves on top and let the fan blow air on them for a couple of hours which worked great!
