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 Snowridge Circle. These are:
- 2548 Snowridge Crescent
- 2552 Snowridge Crescent
- 2556 Snowridge Crescent
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.

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.

At the end of Snowridge Crescent, the bridge takes you over to the Lower Dave Murray Downhill run on Whistler Mountain. When the snow has gone, there is a path which leads down, past the Legends building and within a minute’s walk you are at the grocery and liquor store. You are also a short walk from other shops, 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.
Check out the 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 route 1 and 2 on the above link. There is no bus service 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 to your destination.

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 to walk down Snowridge Crescent in the direction of the slopes. The equalizer is that early risers can schuss 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 some ski-in/ski-out property in Whistler.

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