As of Tuesday, March 17, 2020, we will suspend our operations at the Whistler Athletes’ Centre until further notice. This includes the Lodge/accommodation facilities, as well as the HUB fitness area.
This difficult decision was made in light of the continued spread of COVID-19 in Canada, and is a proactive measure to assist in reducing the potential spread of the virus. The health and well-being of our guests, athletes, staff and community are always our highest priority.
Guests currently staying at the Whistler Athletes’ Centre will be able to continue their stay as planned. However no new arrivals and no new bookings will be accepted between March 17 and April 30. Accommodation reservations for the timeframe above will be refunded.
For any other questions, our front desk team continues to be available for you at 604-964-0052 or firstname.lastname@example.org. To alleviate the burden on staff, pay will be extended through the next weeks.
Our thoughts are with those directly affected by the virus, our tirelessly working health care personnel, and all those who assist our communities to cope with this unusual situation.
Thank you for your understanding. Take care of yourself and others, we hope to welcome you back soon!
