You may only want to eat and ride bikes while in Whistler, but the reality is, you’re going to need somewhere to re-charge and possibly even shower. Leaving your beloved bike in the care of someone else can seem daunting but since Whistler sees it’s fair share of things on two wheels, a large number of the hotels are expert bike babysitters and even offer a few other perks just for mountain bikers. We’ve got the lowdown on where to find the bike friendly hotels in town.
Chances are that you’ve heard of the Aava Hotel if you are familiar with professional mountain biker Brett Tippie. It’s his go-to spot and it’s not hard to see why. The Aava features a complimentary secured bike vault, bike valet, bike wash & tool kit and use of Rocky Mountain hardtail trail bikes!
Not only does Evolution Whistler offer secure bike storage, this hotel is located in creekside right next to the lifts for quick and easy uploading!
Listel Hotel Whistler
If you opt not to bring your bike to Whistler, the Listel Hotel is partnered with Spicy Sports and offers a deal on rentals!
Pan Pacific Mountainside
Your not going to get much closer to the Bike Park unless you sleep in the lift line and you’ll probably be more comfortable gazing longingly at the view from inside one of the hotel rooms anyway!
Summit Lodge and Spa
Located right in the heart of village, the Summit Lodge and Spa has a relationship with Spitfire Rentals, an in house Bike and Scooter rental store. Here, guests can get their hands on a new e-bike or a cruiser!
The Westin Resort and Spa
Roll off the hill and down to the Westin. This hotel also features a spa so don’t feel too bad if you need to take a rest day. What’s more, there is a bike valet!
An 8 minute walk from the lifts which means a 3 minute bike ride, the Cascade Lodge has 1-2 bedroom condos, full kitchens and a bike concierge!
Is the Longhorn your favourite place to apres? If it is, stay at the Carleton Lodge and you’re just a hop, skip and a jump (not even a bike ride!) away from the patio with a view of the bike park action! This hotel also features free and secure bike storage.
Now that you know where you can stay comfortably with your bike, you can focus on the finer details like biking with your kids and understanding the way the Whistler trails are graded. Ready to come ride?
