Quotes from Whistler’s leaders



Want to know what the word on the street is about Whistler’s new pod hotel? Here’s what the key movers and shakers of Whistler, BC, are saying about Pangea.


Nancy Wilhelm-Morden

Mayor, Resort Municipality of Whistler

“Congratulations to the Pangea Pod Hotel team on the announcement of their newly updated hotel. This is an excellent example of a substantial reinvestment in the Village, something that has been a priority of council, and important in keeping Whistler fresh and competitive.”


Dave Brownlie

Chief Operating Officer, Whistler Blackcomb | CEO of the Year, 2016 Business in Vancouver

“I look forward to seeing Pangea in action.  I think it is a winner and could be applied across different resorts.”


Melissa Pace

CEO, Whistler Chamber of Commerce

“On behalf of the Whistler Chamber of Commerce, we welcome the Pangea Pod Hotel to our community.  This unique and innovative concept fills a short-term accommodation option not yet offered to travelers visiting Whistler. In addition, the careful redesign of the exterior of the building will significantly enhance the overall feel and vibe on the Village Stroll.  Congratulations to the Pangea Pod Hotel!”


Barrett Fisher

President & CEO, Tourism Whistler

“The entire team at Tourism Whistler are delighted to welcome the Pangea Pod Hotel to Whistler.  We are exceptionally excited about the potential for this unique, high quality concept in the heart of Whistler Village to serve and grow visitation from a new customer segment.”


Drew Meredith

Former Mayor of Whistler | Freeperson of the Municipality | Founder, Whistler Real Estate Co.

This was one of the most interesting and challenging properties I have ever worked on in over 40 years as a realtor in Whistler. Jelena and Russell’s concept was a hard sell initially, but their logical and determined approach won over the decision makers. From tired condos owned by more than a thousand uninterested timeshare owners to a vibrant hub in the heart of the Village, this is a historical project for Whistler. I look forward to Pangea opening.”
