Whistler is best known for three things: its world-class skiing; its walkable, restaurant-filled Village; and, of course, some of the most expensive and exclusive real estate in Canada. This list looks at the top 10 most expensive homes for sale in the resort as of May 2023.
As of May 26, there are about 187 properties for sale in Whistler, according to Real Estate Works (REW). Three neighbourhoods, the Blackcomb Benchlands, Whistler Cay, and Stonebridge, held the most expensive properties for sale in the municipality. The combined listed price for the 10 priciest properties is about $174 million, down from $183 million last month.
