Serene lakefront lodge at the base of Whistler Mountain with a spa and organic gourmet fare
Welcome to a modern Zen take on the traditional ski lodge—we're talking clean lines, natural materials (wood beams, stone fireplaces), and inviting textures including buttery leather and nubby plaid. Colors reflect the hotel’s dramatic surroundings; from the inky waters of the lake to the rust-hued foliage. All of the 77 guest rooms (even the smallest studios) feature fireplaces, fully equipped (if small) kitchenettes, and 40-inch LCD televisions. Large slate tile bathrooms have separate rain showers and deep soaking tubs. Rooms overlooking the lake are rightly popular, but those with mountain and forest views are just as impressive. Larger suites, such as the two-bedroom Nita Suites, have split levels, kitchens and large balconies above the lake. Although skiing is the main focus in Whistler (hiking and biking in summertime), there are plenty of amenities at the lodge to keep non-skiers and youngsters occupied: a quiet library, a game room, a plunge pool, a hot tub, and more. In the summer months, free bikes and fishing rods are available. The impressive on-site spa highlights Nita Lake’s wellness vibe, with a yoga studio and a program of detoxifying treatments. The lodge also holds frequent fitness camps and classes with professional trainers. The Cure Lounge & Patio is a great place for an après-ski cocktail, with its comfy sofas, fireplace, and frequent live music. Otherwise, there’s the Aura restaurant, which specializes in European comfort food made from sustainable and organic ingredients.
In the Area
With its exclusive lakeside setting away from the hustle and bustle of Whistler village (but still close to the gondola), this boutique property holds some of the best views, food and amenities in the area. And that’s saying a lot for a place that hosted the 2010 Winter Olympics. Featuring Canadian specialties such as Vancouver Island black cod and Canadian wild arctic caribou chops, the award-winning Bearfoot Bistro in Whistler Village is a local favorite. And be sure to take a swig from the restaurant’s 14,000-bottle wine cellar, as well. With access to more than 432,000 acres on hundreds of unspoiled mountains and glaciers in British Columbia, the local company Whistler Heli Skiing runs guided group tours to some of the country’s most stunning terrain until late April. From April through October, the most scenic and fun way to get from Vancouver to Whistler is the Rocky Mountaineer, a train that runs through the Canadian wilderness. It delivers you to the main station just a few steps from the doors of Nita Lake Lodge.
