Whistler SouthOn approaching Whistler from Vancouver, the neighbourhoods located just to the south of Whistler consist of Pinecrest & Black Tusk. Upon entering Whistler, the southern most neighbourhoods of Fuction Junction and Cheakamus Crossing, are found to the west and east of the highway, respectively. The neighbourhoods located at the southern end of Whistler Valley are scattered along the base of Whistler Mountain’s northwest facing slopes and beside the beautiful Alpha, Nita & Alta Lakes.
Whistler Creek, or Creekside, as the locals call it, is the hub of this area. It was the original Whistler village and home to the very first gondola on Whistler Mountain. Whistler Creek provides its surrounding neighbourhoods with amenities such as schools, shops, restaurants, and activities.
Homes within the southern-most Whistler neighbourhoods vary considerably with luxury and traditional blending artfully and cohesively. This area offers good value, with opportunities for building your own dream home, renovating an existing home, buying into ski-in/ski-out condos, or just finding a home with that private setting, only 5 to 10 minutes away from all of the activities that Whistler has to offer.

At the heart of Whistler is the Whistler Village which is the central location for most of the tourist accommodations and activities for both the winter and summer seasons. The Village boasts easy access to the mountains, pedestrian walkways, world-class restaurants, activities, and shopping. The most recent addition to Whistler Village is its newly developed community & events venue, the Whistler Olympic Celebration Plaza, which is home to outdoor concerts and events during the summer months, and Whistler’s outdoor ice skating rink in the winter.
The Whistler Village was carefully designed from early conception, to create a first class resort with all the necessary amenities and more. The success of The Village has led to its expansion northward to Marketplace and eastward along the base and escarpments of the Blackcomb Mountains.
A plethora of property types are available throughout The Village, from ski-in/ski-out residences, to luxury homes, condos & townhomes, as well as investment properties for revenue generation and shared ownership opportunities.
North of The Whistler Village lies most of Whistler’s larger residential neighbourhoods stretching approximately 10 kilometers along the Sea to Sky Highway. These range from the communities surrounding The Village, including White Gold and Spruce Grove, to the most northernly communities of Emerald and Wedge Woods, which is still only a mere 12 minute drive to the ski lifts.
These communities, as with all of the other Whistler communities, are linked by the Valley Trail System which winds along the lakes and world-renowned golf courses and through peaceful wooded areas. Amenities include the Nesters Shopping Centre, and the popular Meadow Park Sports Centre where local hockey tournaments are played.
Often referred to as “Where the locals live”, these communities offer a blend of quintessential “Whistler” style homes, and newer, more modern homes and townhomes, often situated on larger lots with amazing views of Whistler, Blackcomb, Wedge, and Armchair Mountains.Neighbourhoods:
