At the base of Blackcomb Mountain and only a 5-minute bus ride away to the heart of the village is where you will find many of Whistlers luxurious hotels and more generously sized condos. So close to the action but removed enough to make the Blackcomb base area an ideal area for those wanting a quieter part of the village with quick access to the slopes, but also allowing you to be part of the nightlife when you choose to.

 

RECOMMENDATION

Be a kid again or race the family by heading to the Coca-Cola Tube Park which is located midway on Blackcomb Mountain. Open daily until 7.00pm with 7 lanes to choose from with varying degrees of speeds
