Greetings from Whistler,
Whistler Mountain opened this morning and Blackcomb will be open for business tomorrow! It was a gorgeous day in Whistler yesterday with fresh snow falling all day and night just in time for the eager skiers and riders to head up this am. Last night Tracey’s eldest son Lucas camped out at my house and hit the lineup for 5am to be the third person on the gondola. He has been doing this for the past 4 years now and it shows us how much he loves where we live! The resort is starting to buzz for American Thanksgiving, a true indicator is when the parking lots start to fill up. Be sure to check out the Whistler Film Festival:November 30 – December 4, 2016
The countdown is on for the 16th edition of Canada’s ‘coolest’ film festival. Get ready for five action-packed days of films, epic events, industry connections, and time to enjoy the magic of Whistler from skiing to après, fine dining and more.
So, what’s going on in the market? The interest rates went up a little bit but that hasn’t deterred the buyers at all. 77% of our buyers are from the Lower Mainland and 10 % are from USA. Not as many sales this week, mostly because there is not enough product for buyers to choose from. Call us or email right away if you see a listing that interests you, we have to act fast in this market.
Have a great week!
