About Jane or Greg Hicklin
Our family has loved skiing for years! We live in Calgary now but spent many years living in Switzerland skiing in Europe. Our favourite spot has always been Whistler so are happy that we are so close by to enjoy it.
Jane or Greg Hicklin purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Jane or Greg Hicklin chose Upper Village
The Benchlands area is by far the best location in Whistler. It is so close to everything that our car gets parked and never moves until we leave town. It is a short walk away from the hustle of the village so nice and quiet for relaxing after a hard day on the slopes.
What makes this Condo unique
Excellent ski-in and ski-out just across the street. Close to great restaurants and apres-ski pubs. The free shuttle to the village is just outside the door.

Great balance of space and ski access
This unit is well stocked with kitchen equipment, well appointed with great natural lighting, and is a great cozy spot to call home while on your ski vacation! The ski slopes are about a 100m walk across the street -- we were originally apprehensive about not having true ski-in/ski-out, but after being able to compare the space and privacy to units in the complex immediately abutting the slopes, we were quite happy with increased spaciousness and privacy this compromise affords!
Perfect! Spacious, comfortable, and exactly everything we needed!
Can not thank Jane and Greg enough! We had some issues with our payment clearing and they held the property for us without any additional hassle or cost. Lets get to the property review.
The property is as spacious as it looks and very comfortable for our group. We really felt right at home. Washer and dryer on premises, TV had HDMI so we could hook up our Nintendo Switch, kitchen had everything we needed for our home-cooked meals when we weren't eating out. Unfortunately, the Jacuzzi was not working for our stay so that was a bummer. In terms of location, what can I saw...it is amazing. It is just a short walk to the base of Blackcomb. We did manage to ski back all the way to the lodge on one occasion, but we did have to get creative. Otherwise it is no more then a 5-10 minute walk in ski gear. Additionally, in terms of walking, being this close to Blackcomb means you have a great lit path leads all the way to Whistler Village so you are never too far from a proper apres ski or the night life for that matter. We walked twice to the village in our week stay and we even had a truck! But there simply was no reason, it is not too far, the snow and lights are beautiful! Jane and Greg, thank you so much for sharing your lovely home with us! We would definitely come again if/when we make it back to Whistler!
Thank you for the great review Tuan. We are sorry to hear about the Jacuzzi not working. We are assuming you mean the jacuzzi tub in our unit and not the outdoor shared hot tub on the roof. We will make sure that we address it when we get out there in a couple of weeks.
Thanks again and hope you return!
Perfect condo for our group
Condo was very spacious and perfect for our group of 6+ our 1 year old. Only complaint was the cable. The last two days of our stay it would lose connection every 1-2 minutes. We would have to flip down a channel and then back up to restore the signal. This normally would not have been an issue, but we were there during the Alabama-Oklahoma semi final game, and we are big Alabama fans. Unfortunately, we had to keep the remote in hand and flip channels back and forth every minute or so for the entire game. Not sure if this was weather related or just an issue that they have on the mountain. We tried to reboot the cable box a few times but this did not help. Everything else was great and would definitely stay again.
We are so sorry to hear about the cable issues that you had. We employ a concierge for our property and she could have looked into it while you were there. The cable company may have been able to fix the issue. Thank you for your feedback and we will address it prior to our next guests.
Wonderful place to stay
This was such a beautiful unit and a perfect place to spend Christmas with our family. It was so fully stocked we couldnt believe it! It was only a short walk to the ski in/out trail. We would definitely come again!
Convenient ski condo
Spacious comfortable 3bedroom condo with well stocked full kitchen. Good layout and well furnished. Building jacuzzi steps away. Convenient to the ski slopes by shuttle bus just outside main entrance lobby.
Great location, well equipped
This condo is in a great location. The bus stop is just outside. Getting to the slopes and back is just a short walk across the street, with a little poling. The kitchen is very well equipped. We were a group of six and had plenty of space. Would definitely stay again.
Excellent location for the summer or winter time. Whistler hosts the annual World Ski & Snowboard Festival in March and Crankworx, a mountain biking competition, in August. You can ski almost all year round with the glacier open in July! Just go to the Whistler/Blackcomb website to see all the activities going on year round.
