If a 5-minute walk on the Valley Trail isn’t short enough of a commute to the main village, we aren’t sure what is! One of the closest neighbourhoods to Whistler Village is Brio. A smaller neighbourhood which is populated by not only chalets, but custom built homes as well. With two entrances to the community, Brio is easily accessible— the turnoff closest to the Village has its own southbound turning lane, whereas the one more south does not allow turning into southbound traffic. With a walk to the Village via the Valley Trail, winding past Tantalus Lodge & Whistler Golf Club— you are minutes away from local shops, restaurants and of course the ski lifts!
Why would you choose to own a home in Brio? Nelson Kirschmann owns a chalet on Panorama Drive and gives you the lowdown:
First and foremost, we wanted to be as close to Whistler Village as we could. Brio is pretty much as close as you can be. Maybe Whistler Cay Heights is a bit closer but not by much. We don't have to worry about crossing the highway either, it's just a quick 5-10 minute walk down the Valley Trail and we're there. That's the main thing - location was number one for us.
