The Apartments at First Tracks are luxurious - very clean, serviced daily and come with a full kitchen and laundry. The staff are excellent. The location is perfect if you are good skiers with young kids. The kid's ski school and crèche are right outside the front door, as is the Creekside gondola. You can dump the kids and be on the slopes very quickly. There's an excellent supermarket a short walk away, which has a great selection of pre-prepared foods as well as the normal supermarket stuff. A bit pricey, but excellent quality. A roasted chicken was CA$10.
Whistler Village, where most of the restaurants and shops are is a 10 min bus ride. I took my 2 adult daughters with me to First Tracks. We spent about $20 a day on bus fares as we went back and forth. As you can only get back to the bottom of the Creekside gondola via Black runs, if you are a beginning skier you have to ski down green runs to Whistler Village and then catch a bus back to First Tracks. You can spend all day on the Mountain and just catch the bus at the end of the day. There are only a couple of eating-out options near the apartment. Dusty's is pub-fare across the street and is kid-friendly.

We arrived and thought we must've ben given the wrong room. Having booked a 1 bedroom apartment for a 10 night stay, we arrived to a 2 storey, 2 bath 80 odd foot apartment. Very well equipped kitchen, heated floors, gas fireplace, big deck and very comfy big bed. A hop, skip and a jump to the gondola, skiing couldn't be easier. Buses to Whistler Village are frequent and cheap (take around 10-15 minutes), taxis are relatively inexpensive. Creekside works perfectly to be away from the bustle with a few cool places nearby (Nita Lake Lodge is a great spot for a few drinks).

Room Tip: We were facing Dustys. Cool view of mountains on both sides. Got a bit noisy over NYE but not too ba...

Well, what can we say except "perfection". Room 426 had amazing views and a HUGE living area complete with kitchen, tv room, fireplace three TVs, balcony and comfy bed. We cannot wait to come back here again. The jacuzzi can DEFINITELY be enjoyed in the dead of winter and the premises are just wonderful. The staff was very attentive to our needs. If you are wondering if the money is worth it...trust me..IT IS!

We rented a three bedroom unit for a weekend getaway with some out of town relatives. The lodge was wonderful and better than expected.

The unit was very clean and spacious. It had everything you could need including full kitchen, washer & dryer, dishwasher, spacious balcony, etc. The rooms themselves were very large.

The bathrooms were large and had heated floors which my wife adored.

The gondola is right out the back door of the hotel. Everything including lift and shopping is an easy walk away.

The only bad part was the parking which was a little confusing. The electronic card didn't work at first for the parking but we got new keys. Some stalls have numbers but most don't. We eventually figured out that numbered stalls were reserved for owners.

Overall, it was outstanding and I would highly recommend it. We can't wait to go back.
