We are on the Spearhead Drive curve closest to the Wizard chair at the "right" end of the building (the unit closest to the slopes).  Out the door, down a few steps and you are on your way to the hill or the Village.Two super comfy leather recliner rockers and a cosy sectional provides comfortable seating for six.  The carpet is being replaced with hardwood flooring.

Whistler doesn't get much better than a ski in\out location just above the Four Seasons and Fairmont Chateau hotels. Easy walking to the slopes and village but very quiet and private. Completely renovated corner unit with beautiful vaulted ceilings. Excellent reviews.

Please note that the pictures posted are all prior to a full renovation in the summer and fall of 2016. The newly renovated condo is a two level 1,200 square foot (112 square meters), three bedroom, two bathroom corner unit with vaulted ceilings located on the ski hill end of the building. It is a three minute walk to the slopes or a five minute walk to the Upper Village and Blackcomb Base. Some recent reviews on location: “The location was fantastic” “Perfect place near the village” “ a very short walk from the slopes” “easy walk to the slopes for a ski down to the Wizard chair and the free shuttle into the village is frequent and stops right outside the door” “we never used our car once” “very central" “Close to many hiking trails and the beautiful Lost Lake” “Great location, close to the upper village, but possibly more importantly the blackcomb mountain and the ace (mountain bike) trails there”. Powderhorn Lodge is located on Blackcomb Mountain immediately above the Upper Village and adjacent to the second Wizard chairlift tower from the bottom.

The following reviews on the space are from prior to the major renovation: “We loved this condo in Whistler. We stayed two weeks and it really had everything we needed to be very comfortable” “The apartment is spacious, fully equipped, quiet and facing trees” “the place was extremely well equipped, clean and tidy” “The condo was better than expected” “lovely, cozy and welcoming” “situated on the quiet side of the building surrounded by beautiful pine trees” “A cozy corner condo in the heart of Whistler” “The master bedroom is especially spectacular, with high ceilings and access to the balcony” “quiet, clean, has everything you need and close to everything you want”.

The renovation carried out in the summer and fall of 2016 fully renovated the main level and also added a new 400 square foot (37 square meters)loft level overlooking the living room. This loft level has more than adequate visual privacy and adds two distinct living areas separated by a new bathroom. One new living area houses a queen sized bed while the other area offers a spacious sitting area with a sofa bed. A flat screen TV pivots on a wall mount to accommodate both areas. The new bathroom features a Thermasol two bench steam shower with large format porcelain tiles, a rain shower head, frameless glazing, large format porcelain floor tiles and in-floor radiant heating. Pocket doors on either side of the bathroom allow convenient entry from both areas of the loft. The loft level can be accessed both by the internal staircase and from a new 3rd level corridor door.

The main level is also completely renovated. The new kitchen is a white shaker style with complimenting quartz countertops, an undermount double sink and new stainless appliances. The following reviews are based upon the kitchen before the renovation:
“a watered down basic kitchen this is not – all of the tools necessary to cook the trappings of gourmet food” “all of the comforts of home that one would find in the kitchen” “We found everything we possibly needed and more to cook a great Thanksgiving dinner”. The new kitchen will be as well stocked as the old kitchen.

The new flooring consists of gray brown oak hardwood and new carpet throughout. The entire condo has received a fresh coat of white paint and is in like new condition. Our intent has been to transform what was already a lovely condo in a spectacular setting into a spectacular condo in a spectacular setting. We can't wait to post pictures of the finished product!

The Host:
“It is my opinion that Doug cares about his guests stay and it shows through the appearance and amenities of the condo” “From the first point of contact until the trip ended, Doug and his family were nothing short of wonderful” “Doug was a great host and was very attentive and responsive. He offered us many ideas of activities in the area, and places to eat and shop” “Doug is a great host; our family is very active and he provided us with wonderful information”

Our Hosting Philosophy:
We have stayed in many rental places over the years and most often the cleaning appears more or less superficial, there are items missing or in poor shape and it is usually quite clear that we are staying in a rental unit. We strive not to leave that impression. We personally use our condo very regularly and we maintain it accordingly. We do our own cleaning and prep - a process that takes six hours on average and we make sure that everything is clean and ready for you. We are happy to give advice and will respond to your questions promptly before and during your stay. In short we take our hosting responsibilities seriously and we do our best to make sure your Whistler stay is a great experience. We love our Whistler condo and we think you will as well.

Guests have access to everything in the unlocked cupboards and fridge including spices, condiments and coffee etc.

We are responsive to our guests and upon request we are more than happy to provide recommendations and advice on just about anything both before and during your trip.

Powderhorn Lodge is located in the “Benchlands” area on Blackcomb Mountain immediately above the Upper Village and adjacent to the second chairlift tower from the bottom of the Wizard chairlift. True ski in ski out in Whistler occurs at Whistler Creek, the Main Village, the Upper Village and Blackcomb Benchlands. Whistler Creek is several kilometers from the Main Village (where most of the "action" is) and is close to Highway 99 (traffic noise). The Main Village is fun and full of hotels, shops, bars and restaurants but is crowded year round and is sometimes quite loud until late at night. It is a great place to visit but not necessarily a great place to stay. The Upper Village is at Blackcomb Base and is quieter than the Main Village and very close to lift access (the Wizard high speed quad). This is where some of the best and most expensive hotels are located. The Benchlands, which is where Powderhorn is located (on the map we are just past where Spearhead Place intersects with Spearhead Drive), is immediately above the Upper Village and adjacent to the Wizard Chair. The Wizard Chair accesses all of Blackcomb as well as Whistler Mountain via the Peak to Peak Gondola (a gondola that connects the peaks of both mountains). The runs on the bottom 2/3rds of both mountains are mostly green and blue runs. The top 1/3rd is where most of the black runs are located as well as blue and green runs. In many a local's opinion the Benchlands is the best location in Whistler and I think our guests generally agree with this. It is easy walking distance to everything you want yet quiet and peaceful. Whether you are skiing, biking, hiking, shopping or swimming and tanning at Lost Lake this is the place to stay. You will probably not drive much after you arrive.

A free bus stops approximately 60 feet from our door. This bus runs very frequently and takes you to Blackcomb base or the Main Village in 5 to 10 minutes. Super convenient. Bus transportation is available to Powderhorn Lodge from the Vancouver Airport or downtown Vancouver.

Doug

We live in North Vancouver and love the mountains. We love to hike, bike, golf and Doug is an avid lifelong skier. We looked at many places to buy in Whistler and kept coming back to this one as it had a much nicer feel to it compared to the others we considered. Newly purchased as of June 2014 and we can't wait to enjoy! We think you will really enjoy it as well!
