This is the first in a series of videos about Kadenwood. My first video is focused on two points. Firstly, what do the Kadenwood strata fees cover? Secondly, how effective is the strata council? Kadenwood is a 60 strata lot development, 1000 ft up on Whistler Mountain and it is accessible by its own gondola. There is also a scenic road which is a five minute drive up to the Kadenwood Development. I will feature that road on an upcoming Kadenwood video. In the meantime, let me tell you how the strata council manage the monthly fees.
How much are the Kadenwood strata fees?
The strata fees are roughly $1100 per month. This covers landscaping, strata road maintenance, grooming the ski access trails and operating and maintaining the Kadenwood Gondola. Whenever the strata need to purchase a large piece of machinery the strata has requested a sum of money from each owne, called an assessment, or levy.
Maintaining Kadenwood Drive
Kadenwood Drive is the road leading up to Kadenwood development and it is a municipal road. Meaning, the road is not part of, or owned by the Kadenwood strata. However, the strata council recognise the importance of maintaining this road so that it is clear of snow in winter. The strata council therefore pays for the snow clearing on this road. Pretty clever, I think as this way the residents of Kadenwood are not held to the snow clearing pecking order of the municipality. Whenever I have driven up to Kadenwood the road in the depths of winter, the road has been in great driving condition.
Additional Strata Services
The strata council has a paid agreement with Nita Lake Lodge in Creekside to provide a shuttle service to the Lodge after you come off the gondola. The pick-up and drop-off point is at Legends. However, the reality is that you would have to be aware that the Lodge is also servicing their own guests. It is also an easy walk from the Kadenwood Gondola to the Lodge, and they also have lots of underground parking. There is also a discount on food, soft beverages, and sessions on some of the spa services. These are a nice add-on, but would certainly not affect your decision on whether to purchase in Kadenwood. However, it does show that the Kadenwood strata council is thinking of how to assist Kadenwood residents enjoy the access to life in Creekside.
