Pinnacle International Resort Hotel, Whistler BC

The first hotel in Whistler’s new Village North, Pinnacle Resort is an eighty-four room, four storey hotel, combining all facets of tourist activities in this part of British Columbia; retail shops, restaurant, swimming pool, insuite jacuzzis, sauna rooms and sporting equipment locker rooms. The building’s design, reminiscent of the great heritage buildings of the Rocky Mountains’ National Parks, fits appropriately into the mountain setting. The use of granite and cedar shingles on the facades as well as many dormer windows emphasize the rugged, yet comfortable feeling that was the sought after effect of the design.
