SNOWRIDGE CIRCLE-Whistler Mtn.

Snowridge, 2544 Snowridge Circle, Whistler, BC

Oct 20, 2021 This page is now under construction

The true address for Snowridge, is both 2544 Snowridge Circle, Whistler, BC.  These townhomes offer a residential rather than an nightly rental zoning. The benefit of this zoning is that you have the opportunity to get to know your neighbours. In addition, hot tubs are not permitted.  The benefit of this by-law is no-on is “whispering” in the hot tub at 2 am, so you should get a good night’s sleep at Snowridge. The ski-in/ski-out trail is closer depending on where you are in the development. The equalizer is early risers can schuss down to the Dave Murray Downhill before the snow plow arrives! You can rent out your property on a month to month basis. However, be careful of breaking this rule, as the local council will fine you. It would not be the first time a neighbour has called the council on illegal nightly rentals in Whistler.

“At the end of Snowridge Crescent, there is a path which leads down the side of Whistler Mountain to the shops and services of Whistler Creekside. This means that year round, you have easy access to everything you need at Whistler Creekside.” – Marion.

Location is key to the quiet neighbourhood of Snowridge, 2544 Snowridge Circle, and 2548-56 Snowridge Crescent, Whistler, BC. Most units have great mountain views and plenty of storage along with large, covered, west-facing decks. Due to the location of Snowridge Circle and Crescent, only some townhouses have true ski-in/ski-out access. Other townhouses are a little further from the slopes, but no more than walking across a parking lot at Base II. This is a quiet location close to the Dave Murray Downhill. There is easy access to Whistler Creekside by walking down the ski-slope.   This complex is so spread out that some units are more ski-in/ski-out than others.

Active Listings

Snowridge Circle listings typically stay of the market longer than their competitive set in the Benchlands. Two reasons for this: 1) residential zoning so the owner cannot generate revenue, and 2) proximity to Village, which a lot of buyers and their nightly rental guests view as a premium.

It is route 1 and 2 on the link.  There is not a bus which will take you up into Snowridge, but you really don’t need one as you can walk to the bus stop, or take a taxi.

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.

Ski-in Ski-out Trails

There is a ski-in ski out access to/from Snowridge Circle at the end which is closest to the Dave Murray Downhill, at building 10, units 25-30 (see site plan on this page). If your townhouse is on Snowridge Crescent, then your ski-in ski-out access is probably best via the access at the end of Snowridge Crescent walking past the multi-million dollar homes. This enclave of houses has a bridge which you walk over and you are on the slopes! This route is also a great way for owners in any part of Snowridge to access the village at Creekside at other times of the year. There is a path which leads down, past the Legends and then you are minutes from the grocery store, liquor store, and other shops, restaurants and bars.

Revenue

Neither Snowridge Circle townhomes nor Snowridge Crescent townhomes are 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.  Careful not be bend the rules as the local council and your neighbours may not appreciate your efforts to generate some revenue for yourself. 

Strata

Built in 1988, the property has 2-4 bedroom suites, 56 units but is not zoned for nightly rental. Some units have garages while others have open parking. Some units have exterior storage closets. There is such a variety of floor plans in the Snowridge townhouse complex. I am always amazed to walk in and see yet another different layout.

  • Windows and patio doors replaced in 2017
  • Complex painted in 2017
  • Pets are allowed
  • wood burning fireplace
  • no hot tubs permitted
  • two outdoor parking spots
  • nightly rentals not permitted
  • GST exempt

Strata Plan

Snowridge was built in two phases, so there are two registered strata plans.  Cross reference this with the Building site plan above (see table of contents).  

Strata Plan VR 2055  Phase I Strata Lots 1-25

Strata Plan VR2055 Phase II Strata Lots 26-56

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 decide to attend to. The strata fees include but are not limited to:

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

Storage

There are no other storage areas except what you have in your townhouse. Some townhouses have a good sized storage closet outside the front door.

Parking

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, the garage sharing has strict guidelines so it is more of a covered parking spot than your homestyle garage.

Zoning

The zoning is residential. Therefore no nightly rentals permitted.

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!
