We have been Club Intrawest Members for 10 years and this was our second time staying at CI Whistler. This trip we used our points for 2 - 1 Bedroom Lodge units over 6 nights, friends of ours stayed in the 2nd unit.
CI is in a great location - just a few minutes walk with all your ski gear to the Wizard and Magic Chairlifts at the base of Blackcomb. We had 6 small children in our group and they all managed to carry their ski gear to the Whistler Kids centre every morning.
The children will love the outdoor heated swimming pool and waterside! The in house movie theatre was also a hit with the kids. CI Whistler has a wine, beer and spirits store just across the road and a good little convenience store inside the hotel.
Each unit comes with its own ski locker. The underground parking garage can easily accommodate large SUV's like Suburbans and Yukons....
The rooms are decent and maybe getting slightly dated but this was the first Club built back in 1994. They have upgraded the TV's to flat screens since our first visit back in 2008. The only annoying part of our room was just how dim the lighting was!
We arrived around noon on check in and our room wasn't ready until 4pm. Big Deal! Just head on down to Merlin's and have a few drinks and some nacho's and soak in the apres ski until they call your cell..... As for the previous posters's criticism of the having to take your garbage down the elevator to the bins all of the CI properties operate that way.... Hard to see how taking your trash down the elevator constitutes lousy service.
