Hi, we are from Australia and want to experience 'true' ski-in-ski out and luxury at the same time. I must admit, we've seen the maps read the posts, but are a little overwhelmed.
We were considering First Tracks Lodge in Creekside as we are travelling with a 5yo & 15yo and we like the reviews we've seen however are aware Creekside is out of the way.
We are staying 10nights from 3rd Jan 2012 and will ski most days however we need to put the 5yo in ski school/babysitting as she is not a strong skier (any hints on this?)
As we dont get the snow in Perth, Australia, we want to experience everything Whistler. Will we be disappointed with Creekside? Not overly fussed about getting in a cab to Whistler village, but will the gondola ride to the base become a pain daily?
The reviews about whistler village hotels deter me from wanting to stay in accommodation there.
Are there any suggestions of luxury ski-in-ski out accommodation in Upper Village?, that would impress, and is this a better location than creekside for 1st timers?
Maybe Four Seasons or Taluswood?
