Ski-in Luxury Homes Horstman Estates, Blackcomb Mountain, Whistler, BC
Ski-in luxury homes Horstman Estates, Blackcomb Mountain, Whistler, BC, represent the ultimate of owning a luxury house in a world-class ski resort. The location in the Benchlands is private and also convenient to access the Merlin’s Run on Blackcomb Mountain. It is a no-brainer to walk to and from the upper village, where the Fairmont Chateau Whistler is situated. Not a hard decision to venture further to Whistler Village without a second thought of whether you should walk or not.
The development has a wide ski-in trail from Blackcomb Mountain, which all levels of skier or snowboarder could come down. However, there is no direct ski-out access to the slopes from Horstman Estates (unless you climb up the ski-in access trail) so it cannot be called a ski-in ski-out location. In summary, Horstman Estates is a great ski-in location and should always be considered when you are thinking of buying at this level in Whistler.
The convenient yet private setting, make this location attractive to those who are seeking a ski-in or ski-out home…read this page and decide for yourself. The current owners of these multi-million dollar mansions must be on to something…which is why I have included this location.

The heading to this section should be called “Having it all at Horstman Estates” where there are several ski-in luxury homes in Horstman Estates, Blackcomb Mountain, Whistler, BC
This is the location which is ideal for those who want to have easy access to and from the slopes, but also want to be able to walk or bike, to and from the village, with ease. This location is all about privacy and convenience.
There are only a handful of other homes in the Benchlands, located at the north end of Blackcomb Way, so the supply and demand rules apply to any home in Horstman Estates.
The homes have all been built to face west, getting the afternoon and evening sunlight. There is one main entrance, and although the strata plan shows that the developer was astute to add several points of access to Painted Cliff Road, none of these access points are in place. This means that if you are on the upper side of Horstman Lane you are walking to the main entrance to catch the bus or to start your walk to Whistler Village.
If you are on the lower side, you may be fortunate enough to have a back gate leading on to Painted Cliff Road…however, this is not a simple access point, and it does look as though no-one on the lower side of Horstman Lane has made this happen. I would say this bodes well to the home-owners desire to keep Horstman Estates as private a location as possible. Table of Contents.
I would not describe sales in Horstman Estates as rare, but there are only 33 lots, so if a house is listed on the market every 3 years…is that rare? This is the listing of luxury houses in Horstman Estates posted by all Whistler Brokerages.

Horstman Estates has a ski-in trail off Lower Cruiser on Blackcomb Mountain which leads into the designated access to Horstman Estates (see photo above). While there may look like more access points, the terrain has not been specifically cleared for the purpose.
There is no direct access to the slopes from this location, however you do have three main options for accessing the slopes:
- Complimentary bus shuttle which runs every 15 mins in winter, and the bus stop is at the entrance to Horstman Estates. This bus shuttle will take you up to the top of Painted Cliff Road where there is a ski-out trail to Merlin’s run.
- The same shuttle also goes down to the bus terminus on Blackcomb Way, at the Pan Pacific Lodge, where you can easily have access to both Whistler Mountain Gondola, Whistler Mountain Fitzsimmons quad chair, and the Blackcomb Mountain Excalibur Gondola.
- Walk down to the ski access path just above the Greystone Lodge…not a long walk for an adult, but too long for young children. My recommendation would be to get the children on the bus. Table of contents.
I am not permitted to post the strata minutes on this site, as they are not deemed public information. The listing agent is not obliged to order the strata minutes until there is an accepted offer.
There is a nominal strata fee to cover the cost of snow removal, road insurance, road repair, and minimal landscaping. The strata covers the communal road and clears it of snow. Each owner is responsible the snow removal on their private driveway. This is a bare land strata, the strata is only responsible for the items covered by the strata fee. It is not responsible for anything on your own land.
Parking is not encouraged on either Horstman Lane or Horstman Place, each house has been built with a number of parking spots which is meant to accommodate you and your visitors. Table of Contents.
Strata plan of Horstman Estates
Horstman Estates is just off Painted Cliff Road. This is a quiet road as most people who buy in this location park the car the minute they arrive, and use the complimentary bus service. There is a free, village bus service which has a route through the Benchlands running past the entrance to Horstman Estates on the way up Painted Cliff Road, and again on its way down to the village. This service runs about 8 times an hour in winter and just slightly less the rest of the year. Click this link www.bctransit/whistler and look for route 5, the Whistler Upper Village/Benchlands shuttle.Table of Contents.
