This is a great one-bedroom condo in the Glacier Lodge & Suites that has been upgraded with new carpet, slate floors, granite counters, natural wood cupboards, furniture and linens.
Glacier Lodge is in a wonderful location in the Upper Village across from the Chateau Whistler at the base of Blackcomb. Definitely great ski in and ski out location (and we are also close to all of the summer activities). The high-speed covered Wizard chairlift that accesses Blackcomb is less than a short block through the upper village from our condo complex (less than a 3 minute walk in your ski boots!). If you want to use the gondolas to access Blackcomb and Whistler, there is a free shuttle bus that stops across the street for the 5 minute ride to the Village, however, with the Peak-to-Peak lift you can access both mountains from the top.
Our unit has a deck that overlooks the courtyard and swimming pool/ hot tub area. Glacier Lodge has a large heated outdoor pool, two (2) outdoor hot tubs and a nice exercise/workout room.
We have a nice gas fireplace for those cold nights (or just atmosphere!).
Description Cont. : Our bedroom has a king size bed and ample closet space for your ski & golf clothes. There is a comfortable queen size sofa bed in the living room. Our unit sleeps 2-4 comfortably.
Since we use our condo ourselves it equipped with all the comforts of home, TV, Stereo, VCR/DVD player, knapsack (for trips to the grocery store, shopping or packing your picnic) and a drawer full of books and games. The kitchen is fully equipped with a microwave, toaster, blender, hand mixer, rice cooker, pots & pans, cooking staples, basic spices, etc. There are coin operated laundry facilities on each floor of the complex. There is also an ice machine on our floor.
The Upper Village has great restaurants and lounges, or - we are a pleasant 5-10 minute walk down a scenic path that leads you over a covered bridge over the river and through the trees to the village center for the shops and restaurants. The walk is great, especially after a dinner at one of Whistler's terrific restaurants.
There is a free Whistler shuttle bus that stops across the street for those who don't want to walk to the Village. There is really no need to move your car out of the underground parking garage once you have arrived at the Glacier Lodge in Whistler.
Also, Glacier Lodge guests receive free ski and snowboard storage at Affinity Sports, the ski shop in the building on the Plaza Level (for a small fee they wax and tune too!).
We only ask 3 things: no smoking, no pets and no ski or snowboard equipment in the unit (but there is free secure equipment storage on the main floor).
