Cedar Hollow, 4701 Glacier Drive, Whistler, B.C.
At the end of your day on the slopes, or any other day during the rest of the year, walking down Village Run to get to all the action of Whistler Village is another benefit of this location. Other than walking, there is a bus service which services Glacier Drive, and with the bus app, you can time your arrival at the bus stop which is close. Other than that, you are taking your car, or calling a driver. Walking up or down Glacier Drive in winter is not an option as there is no sidewalk.
Cedar Hollow is zoned for nightly rental, and is a sought after development for both buyers and renters.

When starting your initial search for Whistler real estate, it is important to understand the current market conditions. If you are not ready to connect with a Whistler realtor and would prefer to do your own homework, I encourage you to study the sales and listing statistics on the Market Update page on this site.

Cedar Hollow is tucked between Glacier Drive and the slopes. The size of the land which belongs to the Cedar Hollow strata is mostly treed, except where the four buildings are. This means that although this land runs up against Glacier Drive, the trees provide a barrier to the noise of any traffic. In addition, Glacier Drive is the road to get to the parking lots for Blackcomb Mountain, so the road is quiet after everyone has left the parking lot after a day on the slopes.
Location of Blackcomb Mountain
I recorded this video from the Blackcomb Excalibur Gondola which passes over Cedar Hollow. It should help you understand the location in comparison to Whistler Village.

One of the first questions from a serious buyer, is always about proximity to Whistler Village. The drive to Cedar Hollow from Whistler Village only takes a couple of minutes.

Civic Address Map
This civic address map is courtesy of the Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW). It shows you the location of Cedar Hollow, and the proximity to the slopes. However, this is a 2D image and does not show the topography of the location. Please note the Wizard Express Chairlift was replaced in 2019 with the Blackcomb ten passenger Gondola.

I took these photos of Cedar Hollow to show you the style of building and the low density design and layout of the development. It is definitely one of the prettier developments in Whistler.
The access to Village Run on Blackcomb Mountain is the same access that the owners of Cedar Ridge use. Walk towards the slopes and end up outside #1 Cedar Ridge. From there, click into your skis or strap on your board as the trail is wide and about 50 ft long. It is a quick schuss on to the slopes. Very easy to navigate. When you ski down Village Run you end up at Mountain Square in Whistler Village. In Mountain Square you have the choice of the Whistler Village Gondola or the Fitzsimmons Chair both servicing Whistler Mountain. The third option is the Blackcomb Excalibur Gondola servicing Blackcomb Mountain. Having the choice of these three lifts, is one of the reasons why Cedar Hollow and Cedar Ridge are popular with buyers and renters.
Cedar Hollow trail map below shows you that there are two routes to get to and from the slopes. The route via #1 Cedar Ridge is featured on the ski-in ski-out video below. The other route via #16 Cedar Ridge takes the same length of time. However, that road holds on to the ice longer in the mornings, and the ski-out trail is a tad longer, but it is certainly an option.

Buyers seem to think that the walk from Cedar Hollow to the slopes is going to take a long time. This video shows that it will take you 2 minutes. Just to put that into perspective, the walk from #20 in Pinnacle Ridge to the slopes is also 2 minutes, and no-one thinks twice about that.The sales of luxury half-duplex/townhomes in Cedar Hollow, 4701 Glacier Drive, Whistler.

The advantage of a 3 bedroom and den, which I expect would be advertised as a 4 bedroom property, is that these are in low supply and in high demand. In Whistler, only a few larger townhomes and half-duplexes which are available for rent have this number of bedrooms. The proximity to Whistler Village means that in summer, Cedar Hollow will be attractive as a rental. Like most Whistler rentals, you will earn the majority of your income during the winter season. However, with the close proximity to Whistler Village, and the number of bedrooms, you should earn decent revenue in the summer season also.
Cedar Hollow is a low density development built in 1987 with 16 strata lot owners.
This site plan shows you the upper and lower floor plans in each building.
These floor plans are examples only, and available as Cedar Hollow Site and floor plans pdf. There are basically two floor plans in Cedar Hollow. The upper floor plan and the lower floor plan. Please note, that on the upper floor plan the entrance is on ground level, and the original den is a floor above. This design is what gives the rest of the main floor the vaulted ceiling look. Several owners have converted the den into another room for sleeping. The lower floor plans are hidden at the back of each building and they typically have a nice patio space.
When you look at the registered strata plan below, you may notice that there are no garages provided for on the plans. It seems that garages were an after-thought. However, the strata council of the day did draft a bylaw in 1999 to incorporate garages for the use of the strata lot owners. The strata bylaw is still in place to provide a garage or more recently a car port for the owners of the one bedroom townhomes.
Registered Strata Plan VR2046 which will show you the size of the land and the location of each of the four buildings.
With no underground parking, or communal hot tub or swimming pool, the strata fees are low. Each townhome owner will have their own electrical and gas meters and each will pay for their own cable and internet. Therefore, the strata fees include snow removal, landscaping, garbage and recycling service, and common area costs such as insurance, electricity and road maintenance. In addition to a monthly contribution to the contingency fund.
Most Cedar Hollow townhouses have a single car garage which will still accommodate a car, but a huge SUV won’t fit. Other single garages and a carport have been built on the common property to accommodate the owners who realize the value of owning a garage. There are several visitor parking spots. However, there are never enough visitor parking spots during peak season. Parking is at a premium throughout the Benchlands and Cedar Hollow is no exception.
Having a single car garage appeals to those who are going to use the property year round. Otherwise storage for expensive bikes is an issue in the Benchlands. There is no additional storage for the Cedar Hollow townhouse owners, other than what is available in their townhouse.
Cedar Hollow is zoned for nightly rental. Their strata bylaws state:
“Cedar Hollow owners who rent their units must engage a Licensed Whistler based Rental Management company with a 24 hour service line to manage the rental of their Cedar Hollow unit. The individual owner must present the strata corporation contact details of the rental management company within two weeks of engaging their services.”
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!
