Stone Ridge, 4822 Spearhead Drive, Whistler, B.C.
Stone Ridge, 4822 Spearhead Drive, Whistler, BC, is possibly one the best laid-out developments in the Benchlands. It feels low-density and the curb appeal is high. When you consider Stone Ridge, be cognizant of your neighbours, and research if your immediate neighbour is renting on a nightly basis. Each townhouse has the plumbing and wiring for a private hot tub, which is a big draw for short-term rentals.
Stone Ridge is set back from the slopes so that you cannot see it from Merlin’s Run or the Blackcomb Gondola.

Stone Ridge is located on the corner or Painted Cliff Road and Spearhead Drive. The townhouse development is in a quiet enclave, so its easy to miss. It is very easy to walk from Stone Ridge to the Base of Blackcomb: just go down Spearhead Drive and along the trail just above the Fairmont Chateau Whistler. The walk should take about 5 minutes.
Location on Blackcomb Mountain
Since Stone Ridge is set back from the slopes, this video can only show you the ski-in/ski-out access. However, it should give you a sense of the location of the development in relation to neighbouring Woodrun.
Drive from Whistler Village
It is a short drive from Whistler Village along Blackcomb Way to Spearhead Drive, as you will see from the video below.

Walk to Whistler Village: Video
For those who enjoy a walk, this video may be of interest. It is possible to walk from Stone Ridge to Whistler Village, and I expect it would take around 15 minutes in total. Have a look at the lovely scenic route which starts at the Base of Blackcomb across from the Blackcomb Day Lodge.
Street View: Video
Stone Ridge seems to capture any sunshine around 1pm each day. The sun at that time is low in the sky and in the south. It all depends on the location within the development whether or not the townhome receives a lot or light, as some townhomes can be in the shade most of the day.
The ski-in trail stops at the south-end of the Stone Ridge development behind townhome #17. Stone Ridge is on flat ground, so that should be easy for all levels of skiers and boarders to access the ski-in ski-out trail. To get to the slopes it is a walk up the ski-in trail to get to Merlin’s Run. You have to carry your equipment, because although the trail is gradual it is deceiving that you can schuss back out to the slopes. Either way, you are close to the slopes.
The ski-in ski-out trail map shows where you would walk to each day to start your day on the slopes.
Ski-in Ski-out Video
The ski-in ski-out video covers: 1)the ski-in off Merlin’s Run into Stone Ridge, 2)a walk around Stone Ridge in ski boots carrying my equipment, 3) walk along the ski-out trail to the slopes, and 4) a schuss down to the Base of Blackcomb.

Stone Ridge is lower down the mountain than Arrowhead, Mountain Star and Painted Cliff, so it would be expected that Stone Ridge might be at the top of the rental list. In addition, it is closer to Whistler Village so it is perceived as being a better location for access to all the Village offers. With Stone Ridge, you can retain any rental management company you wish, or you can self-manage your townhome to maximize the revenue.

The site plan show eight similar buildings. Half of one building has a one bedroom and den on the ground floor, and the entrance to the townhome which occupies the middle and upper floors. Both the downstairs townhome and the upstairs townhome have a carport in next to their front door. The other side of the building is a mirror image of what was described.

The strata fee on these townhouses is very low in comparison to other townhouses in the Benchlands. Simply because there are no amenities, no underground parking, no swimming pool, no communal hot tub. Fees include:
- snow removal
- landscaping and ground maintenance
- recycle and garbage removal.
- chimney cleaning
- window cleaning (outside only)
- insurance of the building.
Each townhouse has a single carport. I have seen firewood stored in the carport, but nothing else seems permitted. by the strata. There are several visitor parking spots, and there is parking available, at permitted times, on Spearhead Drive.
There is no additional storage in Stone Ridge except what comes with your townhome. With the lower townhomes there should be some crawl space, enough to store the Christmas decorations. When it comes to storing bikes they will need to be kept in the lobby area. Storage for bikes in any Benchlands townhome without a garage is challenge for some buyers.
