Whistler is an amazing place to visit any time of the year and my favourite place to stay is First Tracks Lodge. It is located in Creekside which is just outside the main village area. It is quiet and there are some great places, within walking distance, to grab a bite to eat. The lodge itself is gorgeous. True West Coast style with lots of wood, stone and earthy tones used. They also use local photography as the art for the common space areas which is a nice touch. Good outside patio that overlooked the forest behind the lodge. I’ve never stayed in such a beautiful place and I recommend this place if you are looking for top-notch accommodations. Very clean and luxurious!

Located in Creekside, great location with excellent restaurants near by. The Red Door Bistro is phenomenal. First Tracks is clean and modern, very cozy stay for my wife and I. Pool and fitness facilities are first class with a nice BBQ area. Our only complaints were minor. Maintenance was being done on the exterior of the building and we had to put up with a very loud pressure washer while trying to relax at the pool, this happened on two different days. Also the staff doing the maintenance were talking about getting “hammered” drunk and swearing while working, unprofessional bet easily dealt with by management. It just took away from our relaxing getaway without the kids. Other than that, great place to stay and look forward to staying there again.

With 5 teens, the 3 bedroom condo was perfect for a family break. it would have been nice to have a games room for the evenings, but the pool and hot tub was excellent, along with the workout room. Loved being close to the village, but not in fir a much quieter stay close to nature.

First Tracks Lodge Review

Great property located at Whistler Kids Ski school gathering area and the Creekside gondola onto Whistler Mountain. We were staying in a very comfortable, well-serviced 1 bed condo with a fully equipped kitchenette and bathroom with jacuzzi-tub. The bathroom was a bit sparse but I think this was mainly down to the fact that we got the last one-bedroom unit left which I think was wheelchair accessible.
The fold-out bed for our two kids (10 and 7) was more than adequate for their needs and they both slept well. Owing to space there was a bit of table and chair-shuffling required in the evening to get the bed out but nothing major.
I’ve noticed a number of very negative comments in here about this property and I’d like to set things straight. The parent company Lodging Ovations which owns First Tracks amongst other facilities – checked us in very late and efficiently in the Legends Reception and saw us to the First Tracks Lodge in less that 15mins. There was ALWAYS a member of staff in the foyer of First Tracks, we never had reason to complain about a lack of staff onsite and they were only too keen to ensure your questions were answered or just ready which a cheery ‘good morning!’ Our room overlooked the hot-tub and we only heard ‘noise’ (or as we thought – a group enjoying their holiday) one evening in our two weeks there. I believe that covers a number of the issues raised by others.
On a slightly less positive note you ARE in Creekside which is limited in facilities and eating out with the kids (Samurai sushi, Avalanche Pizza, Rim Rock Cafe and Dusty’s were the only ones we found) and we mainly stuck to eating in or going to Dusty’s. You cannot download into Creekside without your ski gear if you choose to go up into the mountain for a sightsee so be careful…only option is to download to Whistler and get a bus home.
Bus trips are $2.50 for kids and adults…flat. If you are going to go back and forward I suggest you look into a day/week pass.
All in all we had a fantastic holiday but were let down by unseasonally warm weather and spring conditions. I wouldn’t go back to Creekside as I found it a bit limiting for places to go/eat/drink but the Lodge was fantastic, right on the slopes and very good value.

First Tracks Lodge Review

This really is a great hotel and is the second time we have stayed here. Its just like having your own private apartment. Quieter and much more relaxing than the hustle and bustle of whistler village, which is what we like. Having visited a few friends in village hotels, First Tracks rooms are so much bigger and to a higher standard. The trade off from being a 10 min ride away from the village is definitely worth it, as the local food stores provide supplies and great dining.
Service at First Tracks is first class, with nothing being too much trouble. Room service and maintenance is prompt and also to a high standard.
We stayed with our 2 teenage kids who enjoyed the easy lift access, pools and the free Wi-Fi. We unreservedly recommend First Tracks to families or couples who like a really nice placed to stay.
