If you’re traveling to Whistler, Canada’s prime skiing resort, Pangea Pod is a good choice for accommodation that’s both well-located and affordable. Situated just 200 meters from Whistler and Blackcomb gondolas and right on the Village Stroll, Pangea is right in the center of all the ski and – more importantly – après ski fun.
Pod hotels are a modern invention, but Pangea channels ski chalet atmosphere with natural wood finishes and warm colors. There are three different types of pods to choose from: Mezzanine is the cheapest, Front-entry is in the middle, and Side-entry is the most expensive. Their differences aren’t that significant, but Side-entry pods are the most spacious and comfortable to get inside. All pods come with charging stations, lockable lockers, individually controlled air circulation, and a pre-reserved ski rack in the storage. They're also organized in eight separate suites, so you only share the space and the bathroom with a few guests.
Pangea isn't called that for no reason. The hotel’s mission is to bring people from all continents together and create a social environment to mingle. This can be done at The Living Room, where you can grab a bite, a drink, or play a round of your favorite board game. Or how about The Rooftop patio, where you can sip on your mulled wine with a view? The Happy Hour that starts already at 1 p.m. and goes on until late sure helps make new friends.
