Snowridge Houses on Whistler Mountain

Detached houses on Snowridge, Whistler Mountain have super easy, ski-in and ski-out access. Not only that, but they are within walking distance of Creekside Village. These two features make up the main benefits of Snowridge.

In other words, you literally walk across a 20-foot bridge connecting Snowridge Crescent to the Dave Murray Downhill. Then, just point your skis or board in the direction of the Whistler Creekside Gondola for upload. When the snow has gone, rather than pointing your skis or board, you point your bike or your walking shoes. Buying a multi-million dollar home on Snowridge Crescent seems to be for the dedicated snow-sport family.

Active Listings

When houses are listed in Snowridge they do stay on the market longer than other houses which are not ski-in/ski-out. Simply because this is a niche product. Some listings expire and are still for sale, or they are sold as exclusive or sleeve listings. Therefore, if you are interested in this location, don’t be discouraged that there are no active listings.

Location

Snowridge is located in the neighborhood of Nordic and is one of Whistler’s original ski-in ski-out developments for detached houses. There are only 22 houses in this high-end enclave, and every house has ski-in and ski-out access to Whistler Mountain. Some of the houses are closer to the Lower Dave Murray Downhill than others, but all are within an easy walk to the bridge for access.  No doubt that if you are looking for a ski-in/ski-out house, in a convenient location, then this neighborhood must be top of your list.

The Whistler Mountain Ski Club, Whistler Blackcomb Snow School, and their equipment rental shop are all close to the Creekside gondola. There is a trail through the trees at Snowridge to the Whistler Mountain Ski Club, which may be of interest if your child is a budding ski racer. After the snow has gone, you will find a path leading down the slope to Creekside. This means you can easily walk or bike down the side of the mountain to Whistler Creekside, and take advantage of the restaurants, bars, shops, and the grocery store.

Transportation

The bus service for Nordic is limited to some streets due to the gradient. To get to the bus stop from Snowridge, you have two options: 1) aim for the intersection of Eva Lake Road and Whistler Road, or 2) head to Creekside. For the Creekside option, you just walk 5 minutes down the slopes and there are two bus stop locations to choose from.

Whistler buses are equipped to carry two bikes. Therefore, when you have had enough exercise, you may want to put your bike on the bus rather than ride it home. The taxi service in town is always available and should cost around $25 one way.

Creekside Map

This is the only map available of Creekside. There have been a few changes in some of the retail stores. However, the changes are minor, and should not affect you relying on this map to understand what is offered in this local hub. There is a great little grocery store in this location aptly named Creekside Market, and it is more than adequate for all your weekly shopping needs.

Drive to Creekside: Video

It is an easy 3-minute drive from Snowridge Crescent to Whistler Creekside as demonstrated in the video below.

Walk To Creekside: Video

Many buyers overlook Snowridge due to the distance to Whistler Village. However, the proximity to Creekside is superb, especially when there is no snow on the ground. The paved path which runs down the front of the slopes, parallel to Snowridge is a great way to walk to and from Creekside and all that it offers. Have a look at the video below and judge for yourself.

Street View

The drive around Snowridge will give you a sense of the individuality of the owners in this area. In 1988, the developer carved out space for 22 lots each around 7,500 sq. ft. Some lots are positioned in a tight formation which is a testament to the age of the development. Some say that adds to the charm of this location. There will never be another Snowridge as there is no space available on the side of Whistler or Blackcomb Mountain within a 5-minute walk to the Base. Many buyers make the mistake of analyzing the house in Snowridge when it is not about the house, it is about this amazing and unique location.

Ski-in/Ski-out Trail

Ski-in Ski-out Video

This enclave of houses has a 20 ft. bridge connecting these homes to the Lower Dave Murray Downhill on Whistler Mountain. Walk over the bridge and you are on the slopes. The Dave Murray Downhill is a black diamond run. In Whistler, we have green, blue, and black-rated runs. We do not have a double black diamond rating. From mid-mountain to the Snowridge bridge, the Dave Murray Downhill is not really a black run, but it is not an easy blue run. Therefore, most beginners and exhausted intermediates download to Creekside at the end of the day.

To start your day, getting from Snowridge to Creekside is a nice gradient, and that portion would be considered a blue run if that portion was rated by itself. In other words, you may be driving to the Creekside base to pick up beginners after a day on the slopes, or at least until they are confident enough to master the Dave Murray Downhill.

Strata

The strata plan for this enclave was registered back in 1988. The building lots were sized around 7,500 sq. ft. The lot sizes dictated the size of each build. Therefore, Snowridge is a cozy development with a focus on the convenient location of Whistler Creekside and a front row to Whistler Mountain.

Strata Plan

When you are considering a particular house in Snowridge Crescent, it is important to look at the Registered strata plan VAS2049. The strata plan provides details on the size of the lots, and what areas are common property. These are very small lots by the standards of today. However, remember, you are not buying in Snowridge to own land, you are buying to have incredible ski-in and ski-out access.

Fees

With no underground parking, communal hot tub or swimming pool so the strata fees are minimal. In summary, the strata fees include:

  • road maintenance
  • snow removal
  • landscaping
  • bridge maintenance
  • common area hydro
  • common area insurance

Parking

There is not a lot of excess room for cars in this bare-land strata development. However, the large common area in the strata seems to serve as a communal parking lot for the owners should an owner be hosting an evening event. In a strata this compact, you will get to know your neighbors which should add to the quality of life in Snowridge.

Zoning

The development was zoned RTA25. This zoning allows for nightly rentals, however, it is the owner’s decision whether or not to rent. In summary, with the price of the homes increasing in Snowridge, most new buyers decide against rentals as the return on investment is just not worth the grief.

Print off the pages for a comprehensive Buyer’s Guide.

What is Representation?

Explaining representation to a Buyer or Seller at the first introduction is a mandatory requirement. This is enforced, yes enforced by the British Columbia Financial Services Authority (BCFSA). There are career-altering fines for real estate agents who do not follow the guidelines. Since there is no dual agency in BC the Disclosure of Representation in Trading Services Form (DORTS) is essential for the Buyer and/or Seller to understand what their designated agent’s obligation is to them. DORTS binds the agent to the client but does not bind the client to the agent. Best to read the blog on Representation for a full understanding.
