The Listel Whistler is always searching for better ways to serve our guests throughout the winter. We are very proud to discuss our partnership with Spicy Sports. This partnership brings access to a wide range of activities for guests of the Listel Hotel that includes winter clothing, ski, snowboard, telemark, snowshoe and fat bike rentals!
Spicy Sports is an independent company, locally owned and operated. They opened their first store in the fall of 1992 at the base of Blackcomb Mountain in the Le Chamois Hotel and have continued to be in business for over 25 years. They have grown to have two locations to serve customers, Village Square and original Upper Village store.
To further its reach and support of the community, Spicy uses locally produced brands like Foon, made in Pemberton from locally sourced wood as well as other locally owned brands such as the rider owned and inspired 4FRNT skis. This addition makes using their rental equipment a true Whistler experience.
What’s more, the rental experience at Spicy is one of ease and enjoyment. The certified technicians will set you up with the proper rental equipment that is suitable for the day’s snow conditions, consequently, helping you have the most fun possible on the slopes. They offer a wide range of skis such as Powder skis & snowboards for fresh snow, Slalom or G.S. skis for skiing the perfectly groomed carpet & All-Mountain or Mid-Fat skis & snowboards for the off-piste enthusiasts. This variety ensures that the correct equipment is available for all conditions, ability levels, and styles.
To further add to our guest’s experience, we offer a discount at Spicy Sports if a rental service is booked directly through the hotel. This rental option is the cheapest offered in Whistler at this time.
In addition to the wide array of rental products, Listel guests are offered ski tuning, made available at a discount through the hotel. To make things easy and avoid holiday interruption, Spicy Sports will collect the ski equipment from the hotel each evening and have it ready for collection from their store, a 2 minutes’ walk from the hotel on the way to the slopes in the morning.
Spicy Sports is known in the community as providing helpful, friendly and genuine service. They have worked hard to build a strong relationship with the Listel Hotel and it continues to grow over our second winter working directly with them. We look forward to working further with Spicy Sports to provide a true Whistler experience for our guests.
