While Whistler, in general (thank goodness for day trips!), caters to the 1%, why not check out how the 1% of that population lives? We found just the place to experience the truly unbelievable side of Whistler, thanks to a mind-blowing home that comes with its own private gondola for you to use. Let’s check it out!
The ‘Eagle’s Nest’ is located in one of the resort’s most prestigious neighbourhoods- Kadenwood. In addition to being the highest neighbourhood on the mountain, it also offers a unique amenity- a private gondola exclusively for those staying there. Not only that, but the ski trails connecting the community to the mountain are also privately maintained. Yeah, we didn’t even know this existed until today.
Naturally, this 10,000 sq. ft. chalet lives up to the prestige of the neighbourhood. The open floorplan offers a variety of luxury touches, ranging from an in-home gym and steam room to massive fireplaces with designer furnishings to cozy up on. And of course, there’s a huge mudroom to house all your ski gear.
Featuring 7 bedrooms and 9.5 bathrooms, the chalet can accommodate up to 12 guests at a time. And honestly, we feel like you could enjoy your trip without even having to see another member of your party during your stay. Some people can play some pool in the games room, others can watch a movie in the private theatre, and maybe a few people will be enjoying a quick hot tub after a day on the slopes.
Naturally, a spot like this comes with an exorbitant price tag, starting around $12,500 a night during the winter months. Hey, at least we’re getting 5-star amenities for the 5-star price point.
And for us, this insane Whistler rental with its own private gondola remains firmly in the ‘pipe dream’ category. Time to see if our wealthy, distant relatives are looking for a ski getaway this winter!
