Reviewed 6 March 2007

First Tracks is excellent, but for a change I thought I would put down some of the not-so-good to round out all the reviews

1. The main living area is cramped - I had the 3 bedroom - the kitchen bar with stools backs up to the living room couches and just behind them is the dining room table - if a stool was pulled out or a dining room chair pulled out, you literally could not move about the main living area

2. Not much in the way of cookware - dishes fine, mini-applicance (coffee maker, water boiler, toaster) fine, but not the pots and plans

3. Downstairs ski lockers too small.

That's about it - everything else ranged from very good to fabulous.

Stayed: March 2007

We have 2 kids ages 10/13 and Creekside is the place to be. If you are staying Creekside then First tracks is also the place to be. Can't fault the place, real luxury, gondola out the back door, bar and restaurant next door, supermarket 2 mins walk. Hot tubs also well-received after hard day on the slopes.

Whistler Village was inundated with rowdy American college kids over the long w/e of our stay so really pleased we chose Creekside and particularly First Tracks.....First class!

Compared to the tiny apartments we've stayed in Europe this place was just out of this world and value for money.

Getting to Whistler from the Vancouver Airport is frustrating. We hired a car for 5 days and it remained in the First Tracks basement for the whole stay, and there is a daily parking charge.

Check out one way hire each way with Avis to save money yet retain flexibility in travel times etc.

I almost don't want to write a review because I want to keep this place a secret. It is a great place to spend for a long ski weekend with friends or family. The rooms are very modern, and the location right next to the gondola couldn't be better. If you're looking for the nightlife, then you would probably want to stay in Whistler Village, but if you're looking for a great ski weekend with friends, this location is perfect. The rooms were beautiful, and the staff was very helpful as well. Everything you need is within a short distance. The only complaint we had was that the pillows weren't very comfortable.

Thanks to all those who wrote a nice review of this place! It was just as described and, I think, one of the nicest lodgey (is that really a word?) properties that I have ever stayed at. Everything about the condo-type lodge room was 1st class - great kitchen with all the items you need to prepare most meals.

I don't think that there is much to say other than - if you get the chance - stay here and enjoy!
