MARKET COMMENT Improvements at Schweitzer, such as the new high-speed six-pack chairlift and the 42-unit White Pine Lodge, have increased the resort's national exposure during the past two years, but the dot-com crush keeps real estate prices off nearly 10 percent.
Located on a corner lot approximately one mile from the lifts and half a mile from Whistler Village, this log home combines southern exposure with outstanding views of Whistler and Blackcomb. With 3,242 square feet, the home offers four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms and a loft. Amenities include a great room, a gourmet kitchen, radiant heat, two fireplaces and two large decks.
LIST PRICE $1.96 mil. SALE PRICE $1.72 mil.

LISTING AGENT Intersite Real Estate Development Corporation; 888-425-3777; www.captremblant.com.
MARKET COMMENT The same model home sold for $160,000 a year ago, partly because buyers are purchasing a finished product, as opposed to working off plans. Market prices continue to increase as Intrawest, Tremblant's owner, raises the bar with each new project in the area.
