With its prime location in Whistler Village just minutes away from the gondola, it's likely that the pod hotel will cause some commotion in the hotel…

The approach to Porcupine Ridge, our goal for the day, is certainly steep at times but with high alpine scenery that's in the world-class category, it's not a hardship to be hiking here, even if it means I'm sucking wind at times.
