Sunridge Plateau Large Luxury Homes Close To Whistler Village
Sunridge Plateau is primarily another area of exclusive, luxury homes, some of which have ski-in and, or ski-out access to Whistler Mountain. Due to the lot size and the layout of the development, each house was built over 5,000 sq. ft. and positioned to have mountain views to the west. This residential neighbourhood is located within walking distance to Whistler Village, ideal for a recreational walk, bike or e-bike ride. Dependent on the location within Sunridge, you may have access to a ski-in/ski-out trail connecting you to the slopes of Whistler Mountain.
Unfortunately, not all the houses in Sunridge can be called ski-in/ski-out. The reason for this is due to the width and layout of the development. At the very top, and on the north and south-side of Sunridge Plateau there are ski-home trails. These trails come off Lower Olympic Run on Whistler Mountain. However, these trails, especially the one at the south end of the development are for the fearless, double black diamond crowd.
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.

The listings in Sunridge usually stay on the market for longer than a similar sized, residential house in another part of Whistler. That is understandable, as Sunridge is in a location which is not a Whistler local’s residential area. In essence, no regular Whistler local could afford the stunning options of Sunridge. 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 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. The appeal of Sunridge is also its close proximity to the village, but it is more of walk-to and drive-home location.
Village to Sunridge
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 short-cuts 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 yourself.
Sunridge Plateau is almost fully built so this Google Map is out of date. However, this map should still give you a sense about the location of the property in Whistler.
Civic Address Map
This map was taken from the Resort Municipality of Whistler website which is a wealth of great information. The purpose of this map is to show the location of Sunridge in relation to the neighbourhood of Brio.
Transit to Whistler Village
One of the main attractions for any Buyer when considering Sunridge Plateau, is 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 $15 to take a car-load to the slopes…or back from dining in the village. Walking to and from the Village if you were not carrying groceries is very feasible, as is riding an e-bike which are magical on the hills, and very popular in Whistler.
Street View Video
By the end of viewing the Street View video you should have a better understanding of the layout of Sunridge. By understanding the layout, that 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 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.
Before you view the ski-in ski-out access video below, have a look at the two maps below. In essence, these images shows you the location of the ski-home trails to the north and south of Sunridge.
Below is the Google map from around 2000. Back then, the top of Sunridge had not been developed. There are two designated access points from the ski-slopes into Sunridge Plateau. On access is at the south end of the development at Sunridge Place. The other access is at the north end of the development which lands on Sunridge Drive. There are access trails into the top of Sunridge, and specifically to the houses already built at the top. The properties which have since been built at the very top of Sunridge Plateau have a ski-access to and from their door.
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, click on the link to review the full version of the registered strata plan LMS2202. There were originally 35 lots on the 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 home owners association in America. The 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. A bare-land strata means that the strata corporation’s responsibilities stop at your lot line.
Like most strata developments, the developer did not allocate common property for extra parking. 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 are a team of trades people and builders, parking is enforced. The benefit of this bylaw is that the neighbourhood appears to be low density, which it actually is. It is always important to ensure that the property you are considering has adequate parking for your family’s needs.
Sunridge Plateau was zoned 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, as the higher the sale price on houses the less likely the owner will be renting out the property.
