Alta Lake was where it all started with pioneers, Alex and Myrtle Philip operating Rainbow Lodge, a fishing lodge, on the east shores of Alta Lake. There are still a few of the old cabins left in what is now Rainbow Park, Whistler’s largest lakeside park. Alta Lake is the warmest of Whistler’s Lakes and is the hub of hot summer day’s activities.
The Alta Vista neighbourhood is located south of Whistler Village and on the south east side of Alta Lake, right beside Wayside Park.
Brio is just south of the Village, and features the exclusive Sunridge Plateau development, as well as a mix of single-family homes.
Across from Brio you will find Blueberry Hill, one of the resort’s first luxury home subdivisions overlooking the Arnold Palmer designed Whistler Golf Course and beyond to Blackcomb, Wedge, Armchair and Mount Currie. Some properties in Blueberry are zoned as tourist accommodation, allowing for nightly rentals.
Whistler Cay Heights, Whistler Cay Estates, Tapley’s Farm and Nesters are all subdivisions located on the other side of the highway from Whistler Village. The views from many of these neighbourhood’s homes can be breathtaking. They offer a wide variety of properties ranging in price and style from modest single-family homes to exquisite luxury homes. All of these subdivisions are family friendly and feature a variety of amenities including beach access, an elementary school, firehall, grocery stores and golf course.
Alta Lake is where you’ll find both Rainbow Park and Wayside Park. Rainbow Park is the site of the original fishing lodge before Whistler Mountain was developed. Both parks offer great access to the lake in the summer for swimming and boating and in winter for skating and cross country skiing. All parks and neighbourhoods are connected by Whistler’s great Valley Trail system.
