Sunridge Plateau Luxury Homes Close To Whistler Village
Sunridge Plateau is another area of exclusive, luxury homes most of which have some form of ski-in/ski-out access to Whistler Mountain. Due to the lot size and the layout of the development, each detached house was built over 5,000 sq. ft. and up to around 10,000 sq. ft. There are a few half-duplexes around 3,000 sq. ft. Each house was positioned to have mountain views to the west. Sunridge is high above the valley so the sun shines a little longer in Sunridge.
Unfortunately, not all the houses in Sunridge can be called ski-in/ski-out. The reason for this is due to the width of the development. At the very top, and on the north and south-side of Sunridge Plateau, there are ski trails. However, the proximity to Whistler Village may be as appealing for some buyers, as access to the slopes.

The listings in Sunridge stay on the market for a comparable time to other luxury locations in Whistler. The main comparable locations are featured on this site. That is understandable as Sunridge is in a location that is not a Whistler locals’ residential area. Best not to read too much into the days on the market (DOM) associated with this exclusive neighbourhood.

The primary appeal of Sunridge Plateau is an exclusive neighbourhood of multi-million dollar mansions built above the neighbourhood of Brio. The appeal of Brio is its close proximity to Whistler Village. It is a relatively short distance, so it appeals to those who like the convenience of being close to the action.
This residential neighbourhood is located within walking distance of Whistler Village. The walking distance is ideal for a recreational walk, bike or e-bike ride. With Sunridge, whether you walk or take the car to the village will depend on your motivation, fitness level and how much you are planning to carry home.
Taking the car every time a Sunridge resident goes to the village is usually sweetened by owning a parking stall under one of the hotels. It can be as simple as joining the Mountain Club at the Westin, to secure a parking spot, or purchasing or renting a spot in Whistler Village. Parking in Whistler is at a premium during the winter and summer seasons.
When Buyers are considering Sunridge, they always ask how far it is from Whistler Village. It is less than 5 minutes away by car. If you were on a bike you can take a couple of shortcuts along the front of the driving range to get to the village. With an e-bike you will be zipping in and out of the village at will. The video below will answer that question for you so you can decide for yourself.
Sunridge Plateau is almost fully built so this Google Map is out of date. However, this map should still give you a sense of the location of the property in Whistler.
Civic Address Map
This map was taken from the Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) website. Their site is a wealth of information. The purpose of this map is to show the location of Sunridge in relation to the neighbourhood of Brio. The map also shows the density of the neighbourhoods giving you an indication of potential traffic.
One of the main attractions for any Buyer when considering Sunridge Plateau is the close location to Whistler Village. The bus service runs along Highway 99 but doesn’t go anywhere near Sunridge Plateau. I doubt a taxi would cost more than $20 to take a car-load to the slopes…or back from dining in the village.
Street View Video
By the end of viewing the Street View video, you should have a better understanding of the layout of Sunridge. Understanding the layout should help in understanding the ski-in/ski-out access from the house you are interested in.
I have attached the million-dollar view shots of Sunridge Plateau. In addition, there are photographs of the exterior of houses in Sunridge Plateau to show you the quality of build of your future neighbours. These photos combined with the Street View video above will certainly help increase your knowledge of this fine neighbourhood.
These trails come off Lower Olympic Run on Whistler Mountain. However, the ski-in (ski-home) trail at the south end of the development is for the fearless, double black diamond crowd.
Before you view the ski-in ski-out access video below, have a look at the highlighted Google map below. In essence, this map indicates the location of the ski-in meaning ski-home trails to the north and south of Sunridge. Dependent on the location within Sunridge the property will have one of the following:
- ski-in and ski-out trail
- ski-in but not ski-out trail
- neither a ski-in nor a ski-out trail
Ski-in Ski-out Trail North: Video
This video will answer your question as to whether the property of interest to you, at the north end of Sunridge has ski-in and or ski-out access. The running theme with Sunridge is that access to the slopes will depend on your motivation and athletic ability. However, if you have family members that need to be “encouraged” to get out and ski…the Sunridge location may be their first excuse for inaction.

Sunridge is a “bare-land” strata. That means that the strata corporation’s responsibilities stop at your lot line. There were originally 35 lots on the original registered strata plan. After registration, some lots were re-configured and re-registered to accommodate a duplex where each half of the duplex had its own strata lot.
The strata corporation is basically the same as the Homeowners Association in America. The Sunridge strata owners which make up the strata corporation pay a nominal strata fee to cover the cost of snow removal, road repair and landscaping. The road which runs through this neighbourhood is the largest expense for the strata.
Sunridge Registered Strata Plan LMS2202 provides information about the size and shape of each strata lot. Keep in mind that the strata plan does not show the topography. Please remember that Sunridge was developed on a mountainside.
Like most strata developments, the developer did not allocate common property for extra parking. In fact, there is no overflow visitor parking in Sunridge. All cars associated with a property must be parked on said property.
In addition, Sunridge Drive is not as wide as a municipal road, and as such, parking is prohibited on the side of the road. Predatory towing is in effect, so unless there is a team of tradespeople parking is enforced. The benefit of this bylaw is that the neighbourhood’s curb appeal is low-density, and even though the road is narrow, it is unobstructed. It is always important to ensure that the property you are considering has adequate parking for your family’s needs.
Sunridge Plateau was zoned RT6 as a residential neighbourhood. This means that as an owner, you are only allowed to legally rent out your property on a month-to-month basis. To clarify, nightly rentals are not permitted under this zoning. However, there won’t be much competition in Sunridge. The higher the sale price of houses the less likely the owner will be renting out the property. Please note, there will be some owners who rent out their property for a month at a time. This is particularly apparent at Christmas and New Year. It is important to remember that Whistler is a world-class ski destination and there is a demand to rent luxury homes.
