The Season of Tranquility
The festive season is all about giving. But, why not give yourself the gift of tranquility this winter. Arriving at Nita Lake Lodge, you'll be immersed in the Christmas spirit as you're welcomed by our gnome-adorned Christmas tree. Our Guest Services team will greet you and provide all the information you need to make your winter getaway one for the memory books. As you step into your spacious suite with stunning views of the frozen lake or snowy Creekside Valley, you'll wonder why you didn't book earlier.
Nita Lake Lodge is a step from the Valley Trail. Wander among the snow or use our fat tyre winter bikes (available for guests) to explore the trail. If you're looking to get up the mountain as early as possible, we're a short walk from Creekside Gondola or our courtesy shuttle is available to take you to and from Whistler Village.
Following a day on the hill, there's only one place to go for après, our very own Cure Lounge & Patio. Sip on a Millennial's Pumpkin Spice Marg, refreshing pint, or Nonny's non-alcholic beer. To ensure your ski legs last the trip, visit The Spa at Nita to be pampered from head to toe. With any treatment you get full access to all of their amenities, including relaxation lounge, eucalyptus steam room and roof top hot tubs. To fuel up, head to The Den for a delicious dinner that focuses on loacl farm-to-table produce. Finally, sink into bliss in our plush king-sized beds and get ready to do it all again tomorrow!
Our newly refurbished rooms are eagerly awaiting your arrival. We look forward to welcoming you.
Creekside Christmas Market
On December 3rd 2023, Creekside Village comes alive with their Christmas Market and Mini Santa’s Village. This enchanting experience takes place from 11am – 4pm and is not to be missed! As you make the short walk from Nita’s doorway, step into the festive spirit as you stroll through the market filled with local vendors offering unique, handcrafted gifts, and delicious seasonal treats.
With a snow-covered backdrop, it’s the perfect opportunity to purchase Christmas gifts while supporting small, local businesses. Keep an eye out for Santa as he may make an appearance too! This magical experience will get you into the Christmas spirit as you explore the wonders of Creekside Village.

Nothing says Christmas spirit like twinkling lights adorning trees and buildings among the snow-covered backdrop of Whistler. Take our courtesy shuttle service into the heart of Whistler Village and relish in the magical glow of the light displays. To fully immerse yourself, download the free Go Whistler Tours app (by Tourism, Whistler) and follow the three self-guided walking tours of the light displays.
