Ski Canada | Hip High Altitude Homey Hostel/Hotel Hybrids

by Louise Hudson

Excerpt:

“The smallest slopeside sanctuary around is probably Canada’s first pod hostel-hotel, the Pangea Pod at Whistler Blackcomb which opened last season. The marketing says: While guests have their own teensy territory to relax and sleep in, everything else is shared. “This ‘chic shared’ concept is changing the face of the travel industry in North America, and is setting a trend towards alternative accommodation worldwide,” says Pangea Pod’s Kristina Matisic.”

The-Ski-Guru | Wanting to Ski in Whistler but on a Budget? Why not stay at the Pangea Pod Hotel?

by The-Ski-Guru

Excerpt:

“But Pangea isn’t only about the pods; it offers superb shared spaces too. The Living Room, a stylish combo of lounge, bar, café, and espresso bar, boasts floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the bustle of Whistler’s Village Stroll, giving the space the feeling of an outdoor patio. The Rooftop Patio is Whistler’s only true rooftop bar, providing a bird’s eye view of Mountain Square. And The Toy Box, an open-plan secure storage area for skis, snowboards, mountain bikes, and other gear, was custom created to address the needs of equipment-laden outdoor enthusiasts.”

SKI Magazine | Whistler’s First Pod Hotel Is Important for Skiers Everywhere

by Jon Jay

Excerpt:

“Considering rates can be as low at $50 CAD a night, it’s easily the most inexpensive stay in Whistler Village. With a bed to sleep in, a fantastic restaurant in the common area—known as The Living Room—on the second floor, and ample secured gear storage, the Pangea Pod hotel has everything a skier needs to sleep, eat, get out into the mountains, and repeat. After all, people don’t go to places like Whistler Blackcomb to spend all day in a hotel room, no matter how big or small it might be.”

The Globe and Mail | Finding work-life balance when your business partner is your spouse

by Russell Kling

Excerpt:

“To anyone considering starting a business with their partner, I would say that it’s important to have some boundaries you both agree on from the outset. I can only imagine how much more difficult starting a business would have been had my wife and I not done this. Right from the beginning, we defined what our roles and objectives would be and while we gave (and sought) each other’s opinion and work on virtually everything together, we always respected each other’s decisions.”

Avenue Calgary | New and Improved Mountain Hotels

by SHELLEY ARNUSCH

Excerpt:

“There are 88 pods in total, arranged into “suites” of up to 18 pods per suite, with private changing areas and communal washrooms. The downside of having to share bathroom facilities is made up for with Pangea’s prime location in the heart of Whistler Village and oh-so-cool common areas, including a rooftop patio. ”
