Every March we celebrate Earth Hour’s symbolic “lights off” movement. Earth Hour started in 2007 as a small idea with a big goal: to unite people all over the world in one moment of solidarity, conversation, inspiration and action around climate change.

We are currently the only hotel and business in Whistler with an event registered to celebrate Earth Hour. One day we’d like the whole town to turn out the lights together, in one giant show of environmental consciousness for the beautiful province and country we love in. Please share this post and help us lead others to join Earth Hour, too.

Why do we celebrate Earth Hour?

As travel becomes more accessible and affordable we feel that as a hotel, and individually as stewards of our planet, it is our duty to be positive ambassadors for the protection of the environment that so many travel here to experience. We also believe that the hospitality industry, as a whole, has a responsibility to help guests live a sustainable lifestyle on vacation, as they would at home.

We are by no means a perfect gold-standard of sustainability, but we’re continually taking one more step to get us a little closer. Sharing Earth Hour with our guests is an important way to show that making a change is not about big grand gestures, but about striving to be better every day.

“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the water to make many ripples” – Mother Teresa

Enjoy the candlelight

We won’t leave you entirely in the dark on March 28th during Earth Hour, the hotel (and even the pool and hot tub) will be illuminated with the warm relaxing glow of candles and tea lights.
