... or zips on our pockets to take our own photos but thankfully one of the staff took a couple of photos.
In between each zipline our guides told us information about the forrest as we walked over suspension bridges, arial bridges and looked over the many observation platforms.
We had a blast on the ziplines and would recommend it to anyone who gets the opportunity to do it.
After the zipling we went on the gondola up the mountain. It took about ...
... in 2013. There are many walks in this area.....our insight into these, were the books, our Guide Tyler shared around. The next best thing. Arrived in Jasper early afternoon after leaving 24 of our group to go on a scenic Raft-Float trip, lasting about an hour. Will post a photo. We crossed the border into Alberta travelling towards Jasper, and turned our watches on 1 hour. We explored the Village briefly before going to Pyramid Lake. There we had a brief ...

Once we were a safe distance away, we stopped and weren’t really sure what to do! The only way back to the village was the way we had just come! We then saw a couple walking in the opposite direction so we stopped them and told them there was a bear around the ...

We had a relaxed day overall until 1730 when we walked down to the leisure centre for a swim and a skate. After the swim we were both pretty tired but we decided to literally get our skates on and enjoy the local NHL sized hockey rink.
Swimming is not my (Michael's) strength but Jenny is most certainly a water baby. This time I did 16 lengths and Jenny did 30. I am getting stronger and feeling more able to swim ...

Jasper reminds me of Gatlinburg...too many tourists. Had a hard time finding little 3 oz. bottles required by airlines. Finally found them. Camping at . $13.70 each. Elk everywhere. I really miss ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside
We spent our first night in Canada at the Pan Pacific in Whistler and we were delighted with the hotel. The staff are excellent and we were made very welcome. The hotel is well maintained and the room was of a very high standard. We would definitely stay here again. There is a charge for parking the car (approx. $20 CAD per night) however this seems to be the case with most hotels in BC.
Good hotel, shame about Whistler
We had a two-bedroomed Mountain View suite in the Pan Pacific for a few days in early August 2004. Calling the hotel got me a better price than the internet. The hotel was pleasant and comfortable with a nice pool and other free facilities, staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The suite was fine, but a TV in the second bedroom would have been good. Whistler in the summer was disappointing - the shops and restaurants were very expensive and the weather was poor, so we did our rafting and glacier hike and left a day early, for which the hotel charged $100, despite having had 48 hours notice.
Romantic and Perfect
My wife and I went on a vacation here last Febuary. Rented a studio room and were more than pleased.
Rooms are beautifully designed and very convenient. Every room has a dishwasher and kitchen (yet the maid staff does the dishes for the guests).
The rooms have fireplaces (nice touch) and down comforters.
This hotel has a wonderful staff, great hot tub (good after a long day of skiing) and an out of this world location (any closer to the mountain and you would be sleeping in the Gondala).
Highly, Highly recommend this hotel (if you can get a room--this one books fast and for good reason).
We drove up to Whistler from Vancouver for just two nights in June 2004. We had chosen to stay in the Pan Pacific as it looked like a fabulous hotel in a great location and we managed to get an excellent deal as it was off-season. We stayed in a 'One bedroomed suite' which was amazing. It was much bigger than we had expected, very clean and tidy, with a well-stocked kitchen (utensils/cutlery/plates etc) ready for our use. The bedroom was more than big enough and the living area and kitchen were a good size too, along with a small balcony to sit and watch the world go by. The staff here were very friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough for you. I would definately stay here again, although i think it's a little expensive in the winter months.
Great location, no cozy spaces
We stayed at the Pan Pacific Hotel on one of our trips to Whistler in 2001. The location was, of course, perfect--- spitting ditance to the gondola and lifts. We watched a snowboarding contest from the jacuzzi.
Our room was a little too small to have a kitchen and living area, but they made ingenious use of a murphy bed, which they tucked away while we were on the slopes, so it was fine. Ortherwise it was nicely decorated with granite counters, quality sheets, etc. The one complaint that I have is that there was no place really cozy to sit and relax, other than the Irish pub. The lobby had couches, but it felt like a walk-through.
Was good but thats expected of the P.P.
I drove up to Whistler from Vancovuer and had the pleasure of staying at the pan for one night. It was great! no incidents to report. But thats because it is the pan i would expect nothing else. Clean room, Good Service, Good pool area everything you would expect from the PP.
The hotel is beautiful, the location fabulous, but what makes this hotel truly special is the staff. I have never come across such an attentive, personable, professional and respectful staff, ever. I've travelled all over the world and visited thousands of hotels, but the greeting received here at the Pan Pacific is the best yet. The staff is genuinely nice, which is what I believe sets it apart from the usual contrived condescending attitude many staff have. I'll be back next year... this time with friends!
The nicest people you could deal with
The staff at this hotel bend over backwards to make your stay enjoyable. The guy at the front desk even played frisbee with my kids in the lobby during a slow time. The location is perfect, right outside the Whistler and Blackcomb gondola. The rooms were spotless. My wife is very fussy when it comes to cleanliness and even she was pleasantly surprised. In fact we thought the place was brand new. I hope to go back there again. Summer prices are good, but it's too expensive in the winter.
Best of the Best!
Fantastic location,brilliant staff,superb good value food - go to breakfast - yummy! Irish Bar is full of atmosphere. Rooms (suites) are very very smart and have fantastic views from the floor to ceiling windows. Are room had two bedrooms,two bathrooms,lounge,kitchen and full climate control. Would go back tomorrow and they have some brilliant deals in the summer - keep checking the P.P website - better than Expedia.
Spent four nights at the Pan Pacific in March, 2002 and want to comment on their excellent staff. Every employee we encounted during our stay went out of their way to do everything they could to make their guests have an enjoyable experience and stay.
