Aspens on Blackcomb is ski in and ski out. We stayed for 9 glorious nights. It's pretty quiet at night so we had good sleeps. Our apartment was a 2 bedroom with king bed in the main bedroom and a queen and single in the 2nd bedroom. The apartment also had a massive soak bath in the ensuite. Ski staff and ski valets at Aspens are really nice and helpful, happy to change rental gear if it was uncomfortable or switch it to snowboards. We didn't book our apartment through Aspens directly so didn't have much to do with the front counter staff, however even though they were always super busy, they were still able to answer the odd question. Aspens is located close to the Blackcomb Wizard Express lift, just ski down in the morning, it takes around 30 seconds. To get over to Whistler mountain, just keep going up and catch the Peak to Peak across, awesome experience! The hot tubs were a great way to end your skiing day and a unusual way to meet up with your group or to meet the other guests.
To get to the Whistler village on foot you will need to walk around 10 - 15 minutes over or you can take the free shuttle bus. You may as well walk though as it's not that far, make sure you have good snow boots on if it's snowing or been snowing. Whistler Village can be deep in snow or very slushy, they do not get rid of the snow until after everyone has left the village. FYI, you do not need to walk to Whistler Village for food as there are some good eating places on Blackcomb, Merlins pub has really great burgers, rated the best by all in our group.
Our group had 3 apartments and we all agreed that we would definitely stay at Aspens on Blackcomb again.
