CEDAR HOLLOW-Blackcomb Mtn.

Cedar Hollow, 4701 Glacier Drive, Whistler, B.C.

The location of Cedar Hollow at 4701 Glacier Drive, Whistler, is considered a true ski-in ski-out location. From Cedar Hollow to the slopes it is a 2 minute walk through Cedar Ridge to access Village Run on Blackcomb Mountain. Village Run leads down to the choice of the Whistler Village Gondola, and the Fitzsimmons quad chairlift for upload to Whistler Mountain. In addition, the Blackcomb Excalibur Gondola is your option for upload to Blackcomb Mountain. Having the choice of these three lifts, and being able to go to the one with the shortest line-up is one of the main reasons why Cedar Hollow is a popular development for skiers and boarders.

At the end of your day on the slopes, or any other day during the rest of the year, walking down Village Run to get to all the action of Whistler Village is another benefit of this location. Other than walking, there is a bus service which services Glacier Drive, and with the bus app, you can time your arrival at the bus stop which is close. Other than that, you are taking your car, or calling a driver. Walking up or down Glacier Drive in winter is not an option as there is no sidewalk.

Cedar Hollow is zoned for nightly rental, and is a sought after development for both buyers and renters.

Location

Cedar Hollow is tucked between Glacier Drive and the slopes. The size of the land which belongs to the Cedar Hollow strata is mostly treed, except where the four buildings are. This means that although this land runs up against Glacier Drive, the trees provide a barrier to the noise of any traffic. In addition, Glacier Drive is the road to get to the parking lots for Blackcomb Mountain, so the road is quiet after everyone has left the parking lot after a day on the slopes.

Location of Blackcomb Mountain

I recorded this video from the Blackcomb Excalibur Gondola which passes over Cedar Hollow. It should help you understand the location in comparison to Whistler Village.

Ski-in/Ski-out Trails

The access to Village Run on Blackcomb Mountain is the same access that the owners of Cedar Ridge use. Walk towards the slopes and end up outside #1 Cedar Ridge, from there it is a wide path 50 ft long and then you are on the slopes. Very easy to navigate. When you ski down Village Run you end up at Mountain Square in Whistler Village. In Mountain Square you have the choice of the Whistler Village Gondola or the Fitzsimmons Chair both servicing Whistler Mountain. The third option is the Blackcomb Excalibur Gondola servicing Blackcomb Mountain. Having the choice of these three lifts, is one of the reasons why Cedar Hollow and Cedar Ridge are popular with buyers and renters.

Trail Map

Cedar Hollow trail map below shows you that there are two routes to get to and from the slopes. The route via #1 Cedar Ridge is featured on the ski-in ski-out video below. The other route via #16 Cedar Ridge takes the same length of time, however, the ski-out trail is a tad longer, but it is certainly an option.

Ski-in/Ski-out Trails: video

Buyers seem to think that the walk from Cedar Hollow to the slopes is going to take a long time. This video shows that it will take you 2 minutes. Just to put that into perspective, the walk from #20 in Pinnacle Ridge to the slopes is also 2 minutes, and no-one thinks twice about that.

Revenue

The advantage of a 3 bedroom and den, which would be advertised as a 4 bedroom property, is low supply and high demand. In Whistler, only a few 4 bedroom townhomes and half-duplexes which are available for rent have this number of bedrooms. The proximity to Whistler Village means that in summer, Cedar Hollow will be attractive as a rental. Like most Whistler rentals, you will earn the majority of your income during the winter season. However, with the close proximity to Whistler Village, you should earn decent revenue in the summer season also.

Strata

Cedar Hollow is a low density development built in accommodating 16 strata lot owners. The location of Cedar Hollow in proximity to the slopes has increased the value of each townhouse as the supply of ski-in ski-out property townhouses have a single car garage which is a unique feature in the Benchlands. Snow clearing, and landscaping are the big ones. The fees are detailed in the strata minutes, which you should always read before you write an offer. 

There is no additional storage for the Cedar Hollow townhouse owners, other than what is available in their townhouse. Remember some of these properties come with a garage.

Strata Plan

When you look at the registered strata plan below, you may notice that there are no garages provided for on the plans. It seems that garages were an after-thought. However, the strata council of the day did draft a bylaw in 1999 to incorporate garages for the use of the strata lot owners. The strata bylaw is still in place to provide a garage or more recently a car port for the owners of the one bedroom townhomes.

Very simple Registered Strata Plan VR2046 which will show you the size of the land and the location of each of the four buildings.

Parking

Most townhouses have a single car garage which will still accommodate a car, but a huge SUV won’t fit. There are outdoor parking spots for owners with said SUV, and of course their visitors. Parking is at a premium in the Benchlands and Cedar Hollow is no exception.

Zoning

Cedar Hollow is zoned for nightly rental. Their strata bylaws state:

“Cedar Hollow owners who rent their units must engage a Licensed Whistler based Rental Management company with a 24 hour service line to manage the rental of their Cedar Hollow unit. The individual owner must present the strata corporation contact details of the rental management company within two weeks of engaging their services.”

Questions

In June 2018, The Real Estate Council of British Columbia (RECBC) effectively banned dual agency in Whistler. What does this mean for you? Well, it means that the listing agent can only represent the seller, and I represent you, the buyer. On August 1, 2021 BC Financial Services Authority became the single regulator for B.C. financial services, including real estate. The Real Estate Council of BC and the Office of the Superintendent of Real Estate have integrated with BCFSA. In summary, any other configuration of relationships is not advised by the BCFSA, which is a dominant governing body.

If you think I can help you, and you are not already working with a Whistler real estate agent, please contact me.

It’s a Good Life in Whistler!
