“Awesome location! Comfortable 2+ BR condo!”
Reviewed 7 April 2008

Powder's Edge condos, managed by Whiski Jack, are just steps from the gondolas to both Whistler and Blackcomb mountains. They are attached to the Hilton, and guests are allowed to use the Hilton pool area. There are only six units in this building.

Our unit had an upstairs bedroom with a king-sized bed, a first-floor bedroom with a queen bed, a loft area with a queen sleeper sofa, and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. We also had a hot tub room off the dining area, which received plenty of use!

The unit could use a little updating in the kitchen and baths, but overall was very clean and spacious. We knew it was not a Gold Crown resort going in, so we did not expect granite counters and a five-star experience. I will say that our family was very comfortable in the unit all week. Powder's Edge does have a quirky outside hallway on the third floor for entrance into each condo. Skis are to be stored in lockable racks in this outside hallway.

They provide ample towels for the week, so there is no towel exchange or housekeeping visit. Each unit has a washer and dryer. One underground parking stall is provided per unit.

I could not get over the location - this is the closest resort to the Whistler gondola, with two easy-access staircases from the strip of shops below. There is also elevator access from the connector hallway to the Hilton.

The skiing is absolutely incredible on clear days. You need a week to fully explore all the mountains have to offer in your skill range. Cloudy days can provide quite a challenge to the beginner-intermediate crowd. Thick clouds can settle in directly at mid-mountain, causing a nearly-blind trip down. Luckily, you can download on most lifts and gondolas if the weather is too difficult.

The village provides plenty of entertainment and shopping, and is easily walkable all the way from the base area to the Marketplace in Village North. Even the Blackcomb base is accessible in 5-10 minutes via a walking path. Parking in the main village is all underground, so the main area is pedestrian-only.

We visited during the first week of April 2008. Plenty of snow everywhere. We can't wait to return to Whistler, and would gladly stay at Powder's Edge again!
