Located slopeside on Blackcomb Mountain, the Benchlands offers alpine seclusion while still being just steps from the upper village as well as the hustle and bustle of Whistler Village. These lodging options will have you on the slopes (or the first tee of the Chateau Whistler Golf Course) in minutes. Many of these complexes have ski-in/ski-out access and they are all on the free shuttle route to and from the Village. In the summer enjoy quick access to Lost Lake Park as well as a weekly outdoor Farmers Market.
