7 Reasons Why You Should Choose the Summit Lodge over AirBnb Whistler

We love AirBnb Whistler but there are just some things the popular vacation rental service can’t offer. If you’re deciding where to stay during your Whistler vacation, here are some reasons why the Summit Lodge Whistler is the perfect place for you.

  1. Friendly, personalized service

    At the Summit Lodge, you’re never without a helping hand. Our professional front desk agents know Whistler inside-out and are ready 24 hours a day to accommodate your needs. If you have any questions about where to go or what to do, we’re here for you.

  2. Free coffee, snacks, drinks, candy, and other surprise perks in the lobby

    There’s always something going on in the lobby. Free coffee, tea, and hot chocolate is available 24 hours a day. In the afternoon you can stop by “Candy Corner” for a handful of goodies. And weekly surprise popups offer wine, beer, cocktails, and accompanying snacks during après hours.

  3. In-house hot tub, sauna, heated pool, and spa

    Relax and refresh with our sauna, hot tub and pool (which is heated year-round). If you feel like being pampered, you can book a treatment at the Taman Sari Royal Heritage Spa, our onsite authentic Javanese spa.

  4. Onsite cafe and coworking space

    eightyone Cafe is a bright, relaxed environment to get work done or just hangout. Free WiFi, ample seating space, and everything you’d expect from a cafe. And the food is AMAZING!

  5. Complimentary bike and snowshoe rentals for guests (depending on the season)

    Whatever the season, we’ve got you covered. Enjoy free bike rentals in the summer and free snowshoe rentals in the winter. Bike and ski/snowboard storage is always free, and you can get your gear tuned up at Underground tuning, located in the hotel entrance.

  6. Pet friendly

    We know that pets are part of the family too and Whistler is a beautiful place to explore with your furry (or scaly, or feathered) friends. That’s why pets are always welcome at the Summit Lodge. If you’re bringing you pet, let us know ahead of time so we can leave some treats in your room!

  7. Seasonal discounts and discounts for returning guests

    Whistler can be pricey but we do our best to make your trip affordable. The earlier you book and the longer you stay, the bigger your discount will be. And if you’re a returning visitor, we apply an additional discount to your booking – just be sure to let us know when you call us at 1(888)-913­-8811 🙂



Announcing Whistler Snowshoe Adventures With West Coast Wonders

Snowshoeing in the Callaghan Valley with Canadian Wilderness Adventures

We’re very excited to announce that we’re partnering with West Coast Wonders to offer our guests exclusive snowshoe tours to Shadow Lake and the Parkhurst Ghost Town for just $49 + tax per person.

Ski pants, ski jacket, layers (decide what layers to wear on the day, it’s best to look at valley temperatures on the morning of the tour), hiking/waterproof boots, and warm socks. Bring a backpack with water and snacks, as well as gloves, a hat, sunglasses, and a camera.

No denim. Snow sticks to denim and makes you cold, wet, and uncomfortable. [/su_tab][/su_tabs]

Why West Coast Wonders?

Founded by Sean Boyle in 2013, West Coast Wonders is local adventure guiding company forged from a love of the natural world and run with a passion to help people of all abilities experience the wild wonders of British Columbia.

We chose to partner with West Coast Wonders for our guest-only snowshoe tours because of their commitment to promoting and practicing leave-no-trace hiking and camping techniques. In 2015, West Coast Wonders were awarded the Green Tourism Award for their contribution to sustainable tourism in British Columbia.

Don’t pack away your skis and snowboards just yet.

Right as we we’re all starting to switch over our wardrobe, Whistler Blackcomb announced that Whistler Mountain will be staying open for skiing and snowboarding until June 7th, 2015!

Spring = Multi-Sport Days

We’re super excited about the extended season because, in Whistler, we love ‘multi-sport days’. Days where we can ski in the morning, visit the lake for lunch and then bike, hike or golf in the afternoon. Multi-sport days like these can only happen in the spring time and they’re usually over by mid-May. But not this year!

Free Bike Rental

All guests can take advantage of our free 1 hour bike rental on our comfy (and stylishly retro) city bikes. The bikes are available any time on a first-come-first-served basis. The ladies bike also has a basket, perfect for a morning cycle to pick up fresh pastries and coffee.
