Home to Whistler Blackcomb, one of the largest ski resorts in North America, you’ll find this town nestled to the north of Vancouver. Of course, there’s excellent skiing and snowboarding on offer, but did you know about tobogganing, snowshoeing and even ski jumping at the 2010 Olympic Park? To continue the alpine theme with your accommodation, we’ve sought out the best lodges and cabins Whistler has to offer – book them on Culture Trip.
Surrounded by mountains and luscious forest, this sprawling lodge was inspired by the best traditional ski lodges around the world – and it shows. The understated, casual and cozy rooms and suites have balconies, fireplaces, separate living rooms and free wifi, with upgrade options including rooftop decks with mountain views. But it’s really about getting out there: in winter there’s a complimentary ski shuttle, and in summer an outdoor pool and tennis courts.
Located on the edge of Chateau Whistler Golf Course and Lost Lake Park, this picturesque lodge is moments away from slopeside activities. Once you’re back from the cold, some well-considered amenities will be waiting, including a year-round hot tub, billiard room and swimming pool. You’re also a short walk away from Whistler Village, where you’ll find shopping, dining and nightlife.
Within walking distance of the slopes – and the shops and restaurants of Whistler Village – this expansive offering boasts tastefully decorated and cozy accommodation, with free wifi, flat-screen TVs, full kitchens, gas fireplaces and bathrooms with whirlpool tubs. There’s a year-round heated outdoor pool and hot tub, underground parking, and ski and snowboard storage. You’ll also be just a two-minute walk from the Blackcomb Excalibur Gondola.
If you want a chic touch with your alpine lodging, look no further. Blending luxury with an inspired location, this ski-in, ski out lodge offers contemporary, high-end suites that feel like home, with free wifi, cozy fireplaces and sleek kitchens. On-site facilities include a lobby with a library and grand fireplace, a steam room, and a fitness room.
Cool and contemporary, this quality offering boasts light and airy two-bedroom or loft condo suites, with newly renovated, fully equipped kitchens, wifi, fireplaces, and HDTV. There’s even a new pool and hot tub right outside. Sitting moments away from the world-class shops, restaurants and nightlife of Whistler Village, you’re also opposite the Olympic Plaza and all the adrenaline-pumping prospects of the mountains.
It won’t surprise you to learn that this place – a seven-minute walk to the lifts, and a short walk to the Whistler Conference Centre and Village attractions – has a mountain view. The charming yet sprawling Bavarian-inspired building is across the road from the grocery and liquor stores of Marketplace mall, and the accommodation is cozy and homey with amazing views. Amenities include high-speed wifi, ski storage and a resort shuttle.
Located at the base of gondolas for both Whistler and Blackcomb, this high-end but homey offering is surrounded by beautiful mountain views, lakes and a bustling village atmosphere. The suites – tasteful and modern, but with a touch of the alpine – are ski-in/ski-out, have flat-screen TVs, free wifi, beautifully finished bathrooms and charming fireplaces. There’s also complimentary underground parking, and you can securely store your skis and bike.
