Pangea Pod Hotel Partnership

Pro Ride is excited to announce our new partnership with the new Pangea Pod Hotel in Whistler. 

We’ve teamed up with Canada’s first capsule hotel, offering campers the opportunity to stay in the centre of Whistler’s pedestrian village without breaking the bank. All Pro Ride Campers will get 10% off their stay at Pangea!  

Pangea is a hub where guests can meet like-minded riders, enjoy an espresso or craft beer in The Living Room or on The Rooftop Patio, but still have their own personal space at the end of the day.  There’s secure gear storage and wicked fast free WiFi throughout the property.  Pangea is Canada's first ever boutique pod hotel offering a unique concept in a central location.

Campers wishing to stay their entire camp or just a few extra nights before or after in Whistler will benefit from an exclusive discount at the Pangea Pod.

Tree Well Safety in Whistler

Whistler is an amazing playground for snowboarders but there are risks to this amazing adventure sport.  The obvious ones are falling and breaking a bone or getting stuck in an avalanche however a tree well or SIS incident is potentially more dangerous.   

Here’s some useful information on tree wells and tips to keep you safe while riding the mountain this season.  

What is a tree well and why can it be dangerous?

A tree well is a void or depression that forms around a tree when snow accumulates around the base, but not under the lower branches or around the tree trunk.  These voids are hidden from view by the tree’s low hanging branches and can get progressively deeper as the snowpack height increases.  Tree wells are dangerous due to snow-immersion suffocation (SIS)
