Pemberton Celebrates Sochi 2014 Winners Announced

When Canada Wins, You Win Too!

Womens Curling Gold

We were so excited when the olympics began this year in Sochi. Memories of the last olympics being held so close to home flooded our thoughts. We made a special olympic display in our lobby and hosted many of the games there, too. Memorably, the last hockey game of the olympics, Canada versus Sweden, was at 4:00 am. And yes, Canada won, for yet another gold medal!

In the end, Canada came home with 25 medals, an "A" for effort, and 10 golds. Perhaps it was all that cheering going on in our lobby that helped bring home so many medals? Whatever the reason, we were glad to have been able to cheer on our favourite teams with you and share some of the memories, too. 

And, of course, to make things a little more interesting, we offered a free night's stay to one person for every gold medal Canada won.

The Names Have Been Drawn!

Winner's names were drawn from a sealed box which contained names of any local Pembertonians who had entered, and the names of guests who were staying with us the night Canada won the gold. 

As Canada won 10 gold medals, we drew 10 names from the box. And the winners are: (drum roll, please...)

  • Hilary Fedoruk
  • Mike Koornneef
  • Meredith Roberts
  • David Heaney
  • Scott Heidt
  • Tanner Vzzell
  • Trevor McBride
  • Sue Rodgers
  • Sandi Green
  • Jeff Scott

We have contacted all the winners, and they are getting excited about their free night's stay at the lodge. 

And Canada Won 10 Gold Medals! 

We came home with 10 gold medals, including:

  • 4 Freestyle Skiing 
  • 2 Hockey
  • 2 Curling
  • 1 Short Track
  • 1 Bobsleigh

And 10 silver medals:

  • 4 Freestyle Skiing
  • 1 Short Track
  • 3 Figure Skating
  • 1 Snowboard
  • 1 Speed Skating

And, last but not least, 5 bronze medals:

  • 1 Freestyle
  • 1 Bobsleigh
  • 1 Snowboard
  • 1 Speed Skating
  • 1 Alpine Skiing

And, as we mentioned, an "A" for effort. The stories this year around amazing things Canadian Olympians did and had done were perhaps better than the medals they won. What stellar people represented our country. Go Canada Go! For a summary of a few of these stories and more, click here

And, as all Canadians are aware, the important game was won, twice over. Both Canadian men and women won gold for hockey in 2014! We couldn't be more proud.

Whistler Alternative

When visiting Whistler, consider staying at Pemberton Valley Lodge. We offer several advantages over Whistler hotels…

 1  Only 20 minutes

You can get to the Village faster from our Lodge than you can from some parts of Whistler Resort.

 2  Save money

Whistler hotels typically charge for parking. We don't. And you get bigger rooms for your dollar.

 3  Free ski shuttle

Our free Whistler shuttle bus runs daily from the Lodge to and from Whistler and Blackcomb mountains.
