A Warm Welcome to the Holiday Season

20th December, 2012

Today’s blog is written by our General Manager, Ian Lowe.

Few places on earth can be as magical as Whistler village over the holiday season. Bright lights dazzle the village contrasted by pillows of freshly fallen virgin white powder. The majestic Coast Mountains provide a framework for what many describe as THE idyllic winter village setting. In addition to all of this, many venues host fun holiday events. These attributes are just the start of what makes our Whistler resort special and the vacation destination of choice for many guests over the holiday season.

An international smorgasbord of families, large and small, couples and residents descend onto our quaint village to celebrate the true spirit of the holidays… a time to be around loved ones. This was the case for me 14 years ago, many Whistler ‘residents’ (loosely termed as anyone who has lived here for more than a month) will be spending their first Christmas away from their families this December. But for this minority, new “families” are organized from a common need, creating inseparable bonds for years to come.

Over the next few weeks, I look forward to welcoming back many familiar faces to the Crystal Lodge (and seeing how much the little ones have grown over the past year) as well as meeting new guests. The Crystal Lodge team relishes in the opportunity to be just one small part of your holiday season and memories for a lifetime.

On behalf of all the team at the Crystal Lodge, I'd like to welcome all of our holiday guests and wish you all very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday Season.
