“Great for a family stay at Blackcomb”
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.
