Whistler’s greenest hotel has opened at Creekside on stunning Nita Lake, five minutes from Whistler Village. Using geothermal energy for heating and cooling, the über-cool Nita Lake Lodge combines earth-friendly technology with pioneering railway history. Unique to this Whistler hotel is the world-famous Rocky Mountaineer, which you ride directly to its door.
Gourmet dining, a $1.8-million wellness and yoga centre, 24-hour front desk, private shuttle service and ski lockers at the base of Whistler Mountain are all a part of the package. Après ski or yoga, you can unwind in outdoor Jacuzzis and plunge pool.
“Our Lodge embodies everything that is Whistler: traditional, elegant, sporty, young, and edgy,” says general manager Regula Wipf . “It is all wrapped up in a magnificent massive timber structure.”
