HEIGHTS-Whistler Mtn.

Heights, 2324 Taluswood Place, Whistler, BC

The Heights at 2324 Taluswood Place is located at the top of Nordic Drive. Buyers seem to quickly determine whether, or not they like the location. This is a quiet area which gives the sense of being remote however, you are only 6 minutes away from Whistler Village or Creekside by car. When it comes to views, you might get a beautiful vista to the south, but you may also find yourself surrounded by fir trees.

There are a lot of positives about the Taluswood location.  It is ideal if you want to get away from the noise and bustle of the Village, and people in general.  In addition, if you want an upscale townhouse with a private hot tub, double car garage, and spacious decks, then the Heights, the Ridge, or the Lookout, would also be a great choice

Active Listings

Once a year a half-duplex may be listed for sale in the Heights. Meanwhile, once in a lifetime one of the chalets may be listed for sale. Therefore, it is important to be ready to pounce when the time is right. It is equally important not to get caught up in what you think you want but to come to terms with what is being offered.

Market Update

When starting your initial search for Whistler real estate, it is important to understand the current market conditions. I understand that you may not be ready to contact me. In the meantime, I encourage you to study the sales and listing statistics on the Market Update page on this site. The statistics are compiled by the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) In addition, the monthly Whistler Real Estate Market Update video is a great way to stay informed in less than 99 seconds.


The Heights is the Taluswood development which is all within the neighborhood of Nordic. Nordic is principally a residential neighborhood. Taluswood starts near the top of Nordic Drive. Each location within Taluswood has access to Whistler Mountain but some locations have easier access than others. For this site, I focus on the true ski-in ski-out developments of the Lookout, the Heights, and the Ridge.

Location on Whistler Mountain Video

The following video was recorded from the Creekside Gondola and it shows you the location of the Heights in the Taluswood area.

Drive from Whistler Village Video

One of the first questions about Taluswood is, how far is it from Whistler Village? In the video below I drive from Whistler Village along the highway to Nordic. Then it is up Nordic Drive to Taluswood. Along the route, the entrance to the Ridge, the Heights, and the Lookout are shown.

Google Map

When you look at the Google map below you should be able to view the ski-in and ski-out trails. The ski home access trail off Whistler Mountain which services the Heights also services the Lookout as they are in the same area of Taluswood.

Civic Address Map

The civic address map shows you the location of the Heights within Taluswood location in Nordic. However, please note that the map does not show you the topography. Therefore the location of The Heights is above all its neighbors, so there is great potential for a mountain vista.

Bus Service

Taluswood is not serviced by the Whistler buses, so you will be depending on your car or a Whistler taxi to get up and down Nordic Drive. The bus service does run along Eva Lake Road in the Nordic neighborhood, but it really is too far to walk to or from the bus stop.  In addition, there is no sidewalk on Nordic Drive so walking up and down is not recommended, and never in winter.

In addition, Taluswood is too high up Whistler Mountain to walk down, and walking up to the green Olympic rings which can be seen from Creekside, is the sort of hike you might do once when the snow has gone, but it is not a well-traveled route for Taluswood residents.

Creekside Map

Although this is an old map of Creekside, it is all we have to work with, and the changes since it was created around 2015 are minimal. The main players are still in this location.

Drive Taluswood to Creekside Video

Although deemed remote, Taluswood is a 6-minute drive by car to Creekside. Coincidentally, it takes about the same time to get to Whistler Village. In other words, it would be a personal decision as to whether you drove to Creekside or the Village. Ease of parking at Creekside over the Village might be the deciding factor.

Street View Video

This video was taken in February after a snowfall, thereby making the Heights look extra special.

Photo Gallery

These photographs will hopefully help you get a sense of the style of architecture in the Heights. The backdrop of Whistler Mountain adds to the appeal of the Heights as a slope-side location.

Ski-in Ski-out Trail

The Heights is not a long development so all properties are within easy walking distance of the ski-in and ski-out trails.

Ski Trail Map

The Trail Map of the Heights was taken and adapted from the developer’s original package. The red dotted lines are the ski access trails connecting the Heights to and from Whistler Mountain. By looking at the plan and then watching the ski-in ski-out videos you should get a good sense of this lovely, low-density development.

Google Map Ski Trail

The ski-in trail to the Heights is the same trail that services the Lookout, the Bluffs, and the other Taluswood developments lower down on Nordic Drive. The ski-out trail merges with the ski-out trail from the Lookout. The start of the Heights ski-out trail is steep, so it is a bit daunting. However, it is a short walk to access the ski-out trail from the Lookout.

Ski-in Ski-out Trail Video

Make yourself comfortable before you start this video, it is a long one because it is packed with details. The video invites you to move to the start of the ski-out trail portion, the reason being that the ski-in trail for the Heights is the same as the Lookout.

Comparable Sales

The sales for other comparable developments are recorded for your convenience on the Luxury Townhouse/Duplex Sales (Sales: Townhouse/Duplex) page on this site. The featured properties are the competitive set. In other words, a buyer would consider any of these developments when looking at similar criteria.


The Heights is predominantly a winter rental. There is less reason to rent in the Heights in summer. However, with the larger layout, some families may prefer the location. In addition, the market for mountain biking is ideal for the Heights as riders can bike in and bike out. Another benefit would be the double-car garage which would provide secure storage for expensive bikes.

The good news for the Heights is that you can use any rental management company you wish. Another option for you would be to self-manage your townhouse, should you have the motivation.


The Heights was built in 2000 and there are 24 half-duplex/townhouse units, called strata lots. There are two detached chalets. 

  • 3 bedroom half-duplex
  • 4 bedroom half-duplex
  • 3 bedroom and den detached house

Strata Plan

The Heights was built in one phase, view the Registered Strata Plan LMS4379 for more details on the strata.


  • double car garage
  • private hot tub in each strata lot


One dog or one cat is allowed at the Heights. If having pets is important to you, check the current bylaws as these rules can change.


This is typical of what the strata fees cover in the strata fees include:

  • annual chimney cleaning
  • fire system maintenance
  • garbage/recycling removal
  • common area hydro
  • insurance and appraisal
  • landscape maintenance and irrigation
  • strata road maintenance
  • snow removal – manual and mechanical
  • window cleaning
  • trail grooming-contribution


Each half-duplex/townhouse has a double-car garage. Parking on the road is restricted as the roadway is one long fire lane, and cars will be towed. Therefore, a strategy will be needed when guests are invited. In summary, parking is brutal in all developments in Whistler but especially those with no underground parking.


All storage is within the strata lot. The double car garage will be expected to house all your equipment and toys.


The Heights have RTA9 zoning. This is a residential/tourist zoning that allows you to rent your property out nightly.

Next Steps

Buying real estate in Whistler, whether ski-in/ski-out or not, is a smooth process when working with an experienced Whistler real estate agent who follows the rules. Everything in real estate, except for writing the contract and the negotiation is a process. Experienced realtor, and skilled negotiator, Marion Anderson will work with you directly from start to finish. No assistants are involved.


Explaining Representation to a Buyer or Seller at the first introduction is a mandatory requirement. Since there is no dual agency in BC the Disclosure of Representation in Trading Services Form (DORTS) is essential for the Buyer 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. In addition, Home Buyer Recission Period (HBRP) would be discussed at that time.

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 realtor, please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.

It’s a Good Life in Whistler!
