Luxury Ski Homes Taluswood – the Heights and the Ridge, Whistler, BC

“Luxury ski homes Taluswood – the Heights and the Ridge, Whistler, BC.  Unfortunately, there are only a couple of detached houses in both the Heights and the Ridge. They are basically the same exterior design as the rest of the half-duplexes in the Heights and the townhouses in the Ridge. Therefore the houses blend in so well to the development, that you may not even notice them.

The access to and from the Dave Murray Downhill is excellent in the Ridge. It is a bit further in the Heights, but it depends on which location you purchase in the Heights. Either way, it is nothing of concern. You will either love the remoteness of Taluswood, or that will be the reason you don’t buy in Taluswood. Either way, Taluswood is worth considering until you make that difficult decision.” – Marion

Ski-in ski-out access

  • Heights: Depending on where you own in Taluswood, will determine how close you are to the ski in and ski out trails.  When you have a look at the Google Map (see table of contents) you should be able to view the ski-in ski-out trails. The trails which service the Lookout, also service the Heights, as they are in the same area of Taluswood. The ski-out trail is between the entrance to the Heights and the Lookout, and the ski-in trail ends up in about the same area between the two developments.
  • Ridge: Without a doubt the access to the joint ski-in ski-out trail is very convenient. When I held an open house at #20, which was directly across the lane from the ski-in ski-out access, I saw all ages and abilities of skiers/boarders come up the incline and into the Ridge. Return to table of contents.

Transit to Taluswood

There is no bus service up to Taluswood, so you will be depending on your car, or taxi. Taluswood is too high up Whistler Mountain to walk down the mountain or down Nordic Drive to catch the bus…you just wouldn’t do it regularly. The bus service does run along Eva Lake Road in the Nordic neighbourhood, but it really is too far to walk to from Taluswood.  I have clients who say they could ride a bike up Nordic Drive to Taluswood, and I expect they could…but unless you have recently trained for the Gran Fondo, I would just take a cab or drive. Return to table of contents.
