THE NEW RENDEZVOUS
On some ski days, a quick trip into the lodge can be a real lifesaver. Whether you’re ravenous for lunch or ready for a rest, the on-mountain lodge is a haven for skiers to recharge and prepare for a few more runs. Always seeking to improve the guest experience, Whistler Blackcomb has announced a $5.4 million renovation of Blackcomb’s Rendezvous Lodge, which was originally built in 1980.
The renovation will update décor, increase the lodge’s capacity and offer new food options like a sushi station with made-to-order rolls, a stir-fry station, a Mexican eatery with tacos, burritos and salads, and a counter serving hormone- and antibiotic-free burgers, chicken and salmon, plus vegetarian options.
The cappuccino bar is also slated for expansion, and the Rendezvous’ upscale restaurant Christine’s is set for a major overhaul as well. In addition to a newly remodeled kitchen and dining area, Christine’s will feature an updated menu for this winter overseen by newly appointed chef Steve Ramey.
