Kadenwood Ski Trail Access
I often get asked about the ski-in ski-out trails in Kadenwood. The development has always been positioned as a ski-in ski-out location with its own Gondola. Initially the development was meant to have groomed trails throughout which would lead to the obvious ski access trails. The development has its own PistonBully groomer to tackle such a job. I have not seen any evidence of these groomed trails on the streets whenever I have shown property up there. For more information on Kadenwood please click that link to find a wealth of information.
Ski-in Ski-out Trails in Kadenwood
You may need me to help you interpret this map. There are three sets of trails on the map. 1) Ski-home, 2) ski to the slopes, 3)potentially groomed trails within the development. Think of yourself leaving the house first and find out how simple it is to access a brown trail. Then once you have done that, pretend you are skiing home into Kadenwood. Find your entry point and then trace the pale yellow trails to find either the house, or a brown trail which leads you to or close to the property.

Rainfall in Kadenwood
Unfortunately rainfall can quickly dissolve the snow and make ski trails non-existent, especially at the start and the end of the winter season. There is usually no shortage of snow on the ground in Kadenwood. So the ski access trails last all winter season and certainly until Whistler Mountain closes usually at the end of April. Kadenwood is basically 2,000 ft above sea level, and is the highest development on Whistler Mountain. The advantage of the elevation, is that when it is raining in the valley, the freezing level in winter is rarely below Kadenwood. I often hear weather reports which talk about the freezing level is at 1,500 meters which is just below the Round House restaurant on Whistler Mountain. Granted, in Spring when the freezing level drops then rain will fall on Kadenwood. However, by then you may be thinking of sailing or golfing.
If you would like me to explain the ski trail system in Kadenwood, and you are not working with a realtor, please contact me. The new rules in British Columbia have banned dual agency, so it is better to contact a Buyer’s Agent, like me right from the start. I can assist you with your real estate needs before, during and after the transaction.
It’s a Good Life In Whistler!
