We have been members of Intrawest for many years. It was great when we had small and even bigger children, as there was lots for the kids to do (as you will see in the other reviews) and you pretty much could let them have the run of the place - when they were old enough. Also, the adult amenities...

We've been visiting Club Intrawest in Whistler for the last 13 years, and keep coming back as we know what we're getting: a spacious apartment, comfortable bed and sitting rooms, lovely bathroom. It's much more home from home than a hotel room. The front desk staff are polite and helpful, the pool and hot-tub area is great for relaxing, and...

My husband and I had signed up for a one year trial period for Club Intrawest's membership and ended up scrambling to make use of our points towards the end of the year since we didn't get to use them sooner.

Nice amenities, well furnished and spacious but no house cleaning during the stay and you have to bring your own garbages and recycles in a stinky room in the basement. Given the price of the membership and maintenance fees, the lack of availability and the absence of house cleaning better look at a regular hotel. The reservation system make it...
