First Tracks Lodge is a solid option for Creekside lodging. There were no surprises, either on the positive or negative side. Our pre-arrival communication with the management company was stellar. We needed to slightly alter our travel plans by a day due to unforeseen circumstances, and since they had availability on either side they were able to do so seamlessly....

I'll start off with the downsides of First Tracks: - The Wi-Fi is free but terrible. It was consistently dropping it's connection and virtually useless so don't rely on it. However just over the way is Dusty's Bar which has Telus' free Wi-Fi which is much better (and can be found all over Whistler & Blackcomb on mountain restaurants). -...

We had a wonderful 7 day ski holiday in Whistler with our Teenagers. The First tracks lodge was a perfect location for us and a bit more quiet than the Whistler Village. Restaurants and services nearby were perfect and the Gondola was literary at our door step. We appreciated the hot tubs for relaxing after skiing as well.

We loved staying at First Tracks! Our three bedroom condo was luxurious....and centrally located. We used the concierge services every day....and the information was invaluable. Creekside is quieter and cozier than Whistler Village....we loved the choices of restaurants and reservations were not required....great choice for our first trip to whistler.

Excellent location if your ski or ride but the hotel is very poorly managed. Kitchen amenities pathetic. Mismatched, cheap cookware. The place mats should be in the garbage ... rolled up woven plastic with food remnants attached, disgusting! The tea kettle was black inside, clearly has never been cleaned in years. Most of the toss cushions need to be permanently...

Our first time staying in FTL. Will definitely come back. Loved having the chairlift right outside the lodge, and felt very comfortable in the rooms. Hot tub, pools and fitness area were very nice. service was great. Not cheap, but good value.

First tracks has maintained an excellent standard of service and accommodation. The location can't be beaten, provided your emphasis isn't on nightlife. It is well located for some of Whistlers best restaurants and the bus to the village stops an easy 1-2 min walk away. For me the few steps to the lockers from the slopes at the end of...

Great location but understand that it is not in Whistler village. Creekside has much less shopping, dining, etc but does have a grocery store, bank and a couple of good restaurants. My only advice to the management would be to consider a shuttle service to and from the village. The condo amenities are quite nice. The kitchen appears to be...

A very nice and spacious room. We stayed on floor six...which gave us very high vaulted ceilings in the living room. Access to the gondola is steps away. But lines form early and are long. As is the next chair to get up the mountain. Dustys is fabulous to apres afterwards. The hot tubs and pool are very nice. Was...
