Snowridge, 2544 Snowridge Circle, Whistler, BC

The principal address for the townhomes at Snowridge is 2544 Snowridge Circle, Whistler, BC.  However, this development was built so that the front doors of three buildings are on Snowridge Crescent. Best to view the site plan on this page for a visual explanation. Therefore there are three other addresses for the Snowridge townhomes. These are:

  • 2548 Snowridge Crescent
  • 2552 Snowridge Crescent
  • 2556 Snowridge Crescent

There are two main features of Snowridge that should instantly help with your decision to purchase: 1) The development has residential zoning. The benefit of this zoning is that you have the opportunity to get to know your neighbors. 2) hot tubs are not permitted. The benefit of this by-law is that the tourists are not “whispering” in the hot tub at 2 am, so you should get a good night’s sleep at Snowridge.

Active Listings

Snowridge Circle listings typically stay on the market longer than their competitive set in the Benchlands. Two reasons for this: 1) residential zoning so the owner cannot generate nightly rental revenue, and 2) distance to Whistler Village, which is a 5-minute car ride.

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.

Location

Snowridge Circle is located in the neighborhood of Nordic. Nordic is principally a residential neighborhood. Residents of Snowridge have easy access to the slopes of Whistler Mountain at Creekside.

The quickest route to all that Creekside has to offer, is by walking down the Lower Dave Murray Downhill run on Whistler Mountain. Access to the slopes is via the bridge in Snowridge Crescent. When the snow has gone, there is a paved path that leads down, past the Legends building, and within a minute’s walk, you are at the grocery and liquor stores. You are also a short walk from other shops, services, restaurants, and bars. In winter, at the end of the day, you can travel this route to Creekside, however, the path is covered in snow, so it will be a slippery slope. During winter it might be prudent to take your car to Creekside. There is an abundance of parking once the hill is closed for the day.

Location on Whistler Mountain: video

The video was recorded from the Creekside Gondola. The excellent location of Snowridge Circle townhomes is seen above and beyond the detached houses of Snowridge Crescent.

Drive from Whistler Village

By the end of watching this video, you will have experienced the 5-minute drive from Whistler Village to Snowridge Circle.

Google Map

This is a great way to have a look around the area in conjunction with the Civic Address Map below. One of the advantages of Creekside is that the Whistler Mountain Ski Club (WMSC) has its home firmly entrenched in the area. The WMSC caters to teenagers who want to ski race.

Bus Service

There is no bus service that will take you up to Snowridge. You can walk from Snowridge to the bus stop, or take a taxi to your destination. There is a bus stop in Creekside and another on Eva Lake Road both would work for Snowridge residents.

Check out bctransit.com/whistler site to see the bus service close by on Eva Lake Road, or down by Legends in Creekside. The bus service will take you to/from Whistler Village. It is routes 1 and 2 on the above link.

Map of Creekside

Although this is an older map of Creekside, it is all that we have to offer. The principal players are still in their spots as shown on the map.

Drive to Creekside: Video

It is only a 3-minute drive from Snowridge to Creekside by car. There is lots of parking year-round, and in winter there is lots of parking after the mountain closes. The parking is more plentiful and easier at Creekside than the parking in Whistler Village.

Walk to Creekside: Video

The following video takes you on the walk from Snowridge Crescent down the path to Creekside. This video was recorded in the summer, so the path is clear. Good video to show you the location without snow.

Street View: Video

The street view videos were recorded to give you a sense of the size of the development. Enjoy a drive around Snowridge Circle for the Street View Video.

Ski-in Ski-out Trails

For townhomes with the Snowridge Circle civic address, there is a ski-in trail and then a separate ski-out trail nearby. If your townhome has a Snowridge Crescent civic address you have a different ski-in ski-out access. Your route is walking along Snowridge Crescent. The equalizer is that early risers can schuss down Snowridge Crescent before the snow plow arrives! The good news is that this is a two-minute walk which would be considered a typical distance for a ski-in/ski-out property in Whistler.

Trail Map

The trail map shows the bridge that crosses over Whistler Creek connecting Snowridge Crescent with Whistler Mountain. The map below distinguishes between those living in Snowridge Circle who have the option of taking the ski-in trail off the Lower Dave Murray. At the start of the day on the slopes, take the ski-out trail to the bridge traversing Whistler Creek. Condos #1 thru #12 have their front door facing Snowridge Crescent. Walking to and from the slopes is their best option, and it is a short walk, see the relevant video below.

Revenue

Neither Snowridge Circle townhomes nor Snowridge Crescent townhomes is zoned for nightly rental.  You can rent these townhouses out on a month-to-month basis. That means that you can rent it out for a minimum of one month.  Be careful not to bend the rules as the local council and your neighbors may not appreciate your efforts to generate some revenue for yourself. 

Strata

Built in 1988, the property has 56 strata lots (townhomes). The development is not zoned for nightly rental. Some units have garages while others have open parking. Some units have exterior storage closets. There is a variety of at least 12 different floor plans in the Snowridge townhouse complex. No outdoor hot tubs are permitted. Snowridge offers the following floor plans:

  • 2 bedrooms
  • 2 bedroom and loft
  • 3 bedrooms
  • 4 bedrooms

Site Plan

The Snowridge site plan will show you the location of the townhome within the development. In addition, it shows if you have a neighbor above or below.

Floor Plans

Within the Snowridge townhome development, there are at least 12 different floor plans on offer. The good news is that since the distance buying during Covid basically, the majority of Whistler realtors prepare a floor plan before listing a property for sale.

Strata Plan

Snowridge Circle was built in two phases, so there are two registered strata plans.  Cross-reference this with the Building site plan above. Please remember that the strata lot number is not the same as the civic address number.

1. Strata Plan VR 2055  Phase I Strata Lots 1-25

2. Strata Plan VR2055 Phase II Strata Lots 26-56

Amenities

  • outdoor parking
  • visitor parking

Pets

Cats and dogs, no more than 2 total per unit. If this is important to you, check the current bylaws as these rulings can change.

Fees

With no underground parking garage, no communal hot tub or swimming pool, the strata fees are as low as they can be. The contribution to the Contingency Reserve Fund may not cover what repairs and maintenance the strata council decides to address. The strata is also involved in the repair and maintenance of the bridge. The bridge allows access to Whistler Mountain. The strata fees include but are not limited to:

  • snow removal
  • landscaping
  • recycling and garbage removal
  • building insurance
  • common property insurance
  • contribution to the bridge maintenance
  • strata road repairs and maintenance
  • contribution to Contingency Reserve Fund (CRF)

Parking

When you view the listing, there should be no confusion regarding the parking at Snowridge. The unit numbers are clearly painted on the tarmac outside each building. This Snowridge parking plan shows how close each parking spot is to the actual townhouse. There are two outdoor parking spots per townhome unless you share a garage. Then it is one outdoor and one half of the garage. Please note, that garage sharing has strict guidelines. Consider it as more of a covered parking spot than your homestyle garage as the storage will be limited.

SNOWRIDGE-PARKING plan

Storage

For most townhomes, there are no other storage areas except what you have inside the townhouse. For some floor plans the foyer is large enough to hang bikes with a creative reorganization of the space. Some townhouses have a good-sized storage closet outside the front door.

Zoning

The zoning is residential. Therefore no nightly rentals are permitted.

Questions

How Do I Buy Real Estate in Whistler?

There is no ban on foreign investment in Whistler. Therefore, the process is basically the same for residents and non-residents of Canada. 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. Print off the pages for a comprehensive Buyer’s Guide.

What is Representation?

Explaining representation to a Buyer or Seller at the first introduction is a mandatory requirement. This is enforced, yes enforced by the British Columbia Financial Services Authority (BCFSA). There are career-altering fines for real estate agents who do not follow the guidelines. Since there is no dual agency in BC the Disclosure of Representation in Trading Services Form (DORTS) is essential for the Buyer and/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. Best to read the blog on Representation for a full understanding.

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.

It’s a Good Life in Whistler!
