Baxter Creek & Rainbow Neighbourhoods, Whistler, BC, Canada

Imagine rising every morning to the amazing alpine panorama of Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains and then taking in the warm alpenglow colours from the comfort of your home in the afternoons and evenings.

Rainbow, Whistler BC

Welcome to the Baxter Creek and Rainbow neighbourhoods, in beautiful Whistler, BC. Located on an elevated south facing bench between Alpine Meadows and Emerald Estates, Baxter Creek & Rainbow have come a long way since their inception in 2009. Today these vibrant neighbourhoods boast much sought after amenities like the neatest gas station on the planet, a grocery store, liquor store and café that regularly promotes home grown entertainment.

The two neighbourhoods are certainly different in character. Rainbow has a small market-housing component, but most of the existing homes, duplexes and condominium units in Rainbow fall under the WHA (Whistler Housing Authority) umbrella and are occupied by Whistler families who work here in Whistler. Some are entrepreneurs who own small businesses. Some are in management positions with both small and large local employers and the balance work in the trenches providing the world-class service that resort is known for. The overlying demographic is relatively young, and children of all shapes and sizes are to be found in every nook and cranny. Naturally, this brings a vibrancy and energy to the area that makes it an exciting place to live.

Baxter Creek, Whistler BC

Baxter Creek sits higher up on this south-facing bench and although development in Baxter Creek started a bit later, there’s a sense of maturity one feels when transitioning from Rainbow to Baxter Creek – almost like mom & dad watching over the younger generation below. The detached homes are bigger and more substantial. The 41 luxury town homes named Red Sky are a showpiece of design, material selection and craftsmanship. The Baxter Creek Residents Club is a fine neighbourhood perk. Situated on premier view location, the facility includes a seasonal salt-water pool, hot tub, change rooms, fire pit gathering area, and plenty of outdoor seating.

Both neighbourhoods enjoy easy access to an extensive back country trail network, connecting to both Alpine Meadows and Emerald Estates where you’ll enjoy hiking, running, biking and snowshoeing through the beautiful natural terrain. Come and explore Baxter Creek and Rainbow. From every possible angle, this is some of the best that Whistler offers.
