The Alta Vista Chalet (aka: AVC) is used mainly for our instructor courses and is catered accommodation for trainees up to 25 years old.

The living room of the Alta Vista Chalet in Whislter with Snow Academy

Set between Whistler and Creekside, AVC is a great choice to make your stay as easy as possible. The chalet comes complete with chalet host who provides hearty home cooked meals, and your stay here includes breakfast and dinner 6 days a week. The chalet host is also on hand to answer any questions you may have about skiing and boarding on Whistler mountain, the best deals, restaurants and the incredible activities offered throughout Whistler.

Accommodation summary:

  • Living Area - large social living area with plenty of comfy sofas, a great place to relax and chat about your day, or to just sit back with a book and relax.
  • 2 large sundecks complete with bistro tables, seating and a 10 person hot tub. Relax after a hard day on the mountain... be daring and roll in the snow!
  • Spacious dining area that completes the open plan living area.
  • Bedrooms - All 11 rooms are finished to a similar comfortable standard with en-suite bathrooms in each room. Rooms vary in size, there are quads, triples, twins or singles.
  • Garage - As with any sport, having 'all the gear' is important. The garage area provides a space to work on your equipment. After you complete the equipment tuning course that is included in your program you can take your tuning needs into your own hands... if you’re up for the challenge.
  • Chalet address: 3229 Archibald Way, Whistler, BC, V0N1B3


Living room of the Chalet Alta Vista in Whistler CanadaWith a live in host, your meals are prepared in house so you don't have to think about a thing, or even leave the house after soaking in the hot tub... unless you want to of course! Continental breakfast is set up from 7am-8:30am 6 days a week so you’re not set to a rigid schedule.

Dinner is a simple, one course meal, but always hearty and filling. Some days may include a dessert.

Lunch is your responsibility. You can make a basic sandwich from the breakfast buffet. There is a large fridge available for you to buy and store your own food to make lunches. Cost of buying lunch on the slopes is c. $15 (£8) for a snack meal of a burger, chips and can of drink.

On instruction days (Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri) you are on the hill all day so have to plan for lunch out – no chance of getting back to the chalet to get lunch. On the other days, it’s up to you!

Alta Vista is between Whistler and Creekside. Creekside has shops, restaurants, ski lockers and the YES office.

Bus pass

If staying in Alta Vista, you need a bus pass which costs $60 (£32) per month. The bus pass works in calendar months only, so if you arrive towards the end of a month, just buy individual tickets until the next month starts.

Ski lockers
