Photo Gallery

The sunlight washes over the front of the building in the morning which would be a lovely time to have the sunlight shining into the condo. However, as you can see from the photos it only shines on certain condos. By 2pm the sun is full force on the swimming pool and the condos behind it, and they can become rather toasty. So, it is important to think about the heat from the sun when deciding on a location in the Aspens.

Ski-in/Ski-out Trail

Ski access doesn’t get any easier, because you step off the Wizard run and onto the Aspens property.  Furthermore, just carry your skis or board over to the valet service and that wonderful person takes your skis or board downstairs to storage. The Wizard run leads down to the new ten person gondola which will take you up to the Peak to Peak Station. In 2018 this gondola replaced the Wizard Express and the Solar Coaster quad chairs.

A special mention goes out to the Blackcomb Mountain world-class groomers. These mountain men and women do a great job of moving snow around on these lower slopes at springtime.  As a result, the properties located on Blackcomb Mountain remain a true ski-in and ski-out even if the snow has started to disappear from the lower slopes in Spring.

Comparable Sales

The sales for other comparable developments are recorded for your convenience on the Condo: Sales page on this site. The competitive set for the Aspen are already featured on this site for your convenience.

Revenue

The Aspens are ideal for generating revenue year round due to the year-round swimming pool, the three, year-round hot tubs, the ski-in/ski-out location and the easy walk to Whistler Village. Since you can use any rental management company you wish, you can self-manage your condo, should you have the motivation. Your other option is to retain the company who manage the front des.

Strata

Built in three phases from 1993 through 1995, the property has 1 or 2 bedroom suites, with a total of 233 condo units. This building is zoned for nightly rental with no restrictions on usage. The Aspens offer a front desk, a ski and board rental equipment shop, social/movie room, underground parking, exercise room. three outdoor hot tubs, and a large, outdoor heated swimming pool

The Aspens strata is one of the best managed in town. I have known clients who were going to sell their one bedroom and move to another complex. After reviewing the way the strata was managed, at that time, they decided to stay with the Aspens.

  • dogs are permitted.
  • a BBQ is now allowed on each condo deck.
  • two coin operated laundry facilities.
  • no washer/dryers allowed in the condos.
  • ski/board valet service is available to owners and guests, or rather to whomever is staying in the condo. This service is offered through the ski shop within the Aspens. You give them your skis/board for storage. When you are ready to go skiing you pick them up or drop them off after skiing – excellent service. Read strata storage section below for more details.
  • owner parking pass provided by the strata but the spot is not assigned. Guests pay a daily or hourly parking rate.
  • Depreciation Report is available. I strongly suggest you review this with your real estate agent before writing an offer.

Front Desk of The Aspens

The services provided by the front desk are only beneficial to your guests if you rented out your property through this rental management company. If you use another rental management company, the front desk will be little use to your guests if they have any service issues. However, the front desk provides a towel service for the pool to all owners and guests. The front desk staff of Resort Quest have always been very helpful and they do answer questions from everyone who passes their way.

Storage

In-suite storage

There is a small closet with a lock in each condo so that the owner can lock and store equipment when the property is being rented. Some owners add a lock to a kitchen cupboard and store some supplies in there.

Owner ski and snowboard lockers

There are two rooms hidden away in the parking lot. Each room has rows of lockers which are not assigned. If the locker is empty and you have a padlock then it is yours. The strata manager has always been helpful when it comes to finding my clients a locker. However, at some point the flaw has to show up with the half-system.

Bike storage

There are two gated areas for bikes. One on the parking lot as you enter and the second one on P2. These are communal areas with a locked gate which is opened by the fob used to access the pool area. I have heard of the ski valet service letting bikes be stored in the ski valet area. It would be worthwhile asking, as the strata will not allow you to take your bike to your suite.

Questions

If you are starting out and want to understand what the process is for buying a property in Whistler, have a look at the Buying Process page on this site. In addition, the FAQ page may also help.

Representation

One question that should be raised, is how will you, the Buyer be protected during and after the transaction? The BC Financial Services Authority (BCFSA) is the governing body for real estate agents. They require The Disclosure of Representation in Trading Services (DORTS) form be reviewed at the beginning of the relationship with that first communication. Please click through to my recent post on Agency Representation to understand how Representation by your real estate agency benefits and protects you.

If you think I would be a good fit to work with you and your family, and you are not already working with a Whistler real estate agent, please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.

It’s a Good Life in Whistler!
