Catering to those visiting the Whistler Mountain Bike Park, Aava offers more than the comforts of home, coupled with a host of amenities catering specifically to gravity junkies and park rats.
Above and beyond simply "allowing" mountain bikes, Aava features a dedicated bike valet team in the summer months to securely stow your ride for behind two digital locks in its dedicated bike vault, monitored by 24-hour security cameras.

No garage? No problem. Aava features an extensive shop-quality took kit for guest use, as well as a tuning and washing station in front of the hotel with running water, rags and all you need to keep your bike happy and ready to shred the next day. Want to check out the valley's singletrack outside the park? Aava even has free trail bike rentals.
Aava even loans guests GoPros to capture the sickest runs of the day, and has the hookups in-room to relive it later in HD.

The hotel is even pet friendly.
Perhaps best of all, it's located conveniently in the heart of Whistler Village only a short walk from the gondola.
