For a resort the size of Whistler-Blackcomb, there seem to be a relatively small number of true ski in ski out condos. The Aspens is a terrific location where you take your skis off an just a few hundred feet walk accross the courtyard and you are there. In the morning, there is no walking uphill, you walk accross a flat paved path and put your skis on a go right down to the lift. When you are ready to go into the Village, you can just walk down the ski slope and it is about a 10 minute easy walk from there.
The condos are a little dated and small, but comfortable enough. There were no dressers in any of the bedrooms I saw, just wire racks in the closet and the space around the bed was not large enough to lay out a suitcase. The housekeeping was more infrequent than I have had at other resorts, only one touch up every 4 days and you have to take your own garbage and recycling out.
There is a ski shop downstairs, which is really convenient. It would have been nice if there was a bar or little store to buy beer downstairs, but there wasn't.
Probably the most inconvenient part is when you go to the grocery store and you don't have a car, you have to take 2 different busses and it takes a very long time. I would probably just get a taxi the next time I do that.
