2017 NW Club Cobra Whistler Trip
2 Attachment(s)
We are one again going to travel to Whistler British Columbia for a summer club trip. It was Summer 2015, since we made the trek and it is time to once again connect with our Canadian brothers and sisters and each other. I have entered into an agreement to hold 15 rooms at the Pan Pacific mountain side resort (Same as 2015) for the weekend of July 14-15 and departing July 16th. This is a super nice resort in the village and close to tons of activities and resteraunts and bars. Equally important, we will once again have reserved and taped off parking in the underground parking ($15 a day). The cars are safe and sound when you leave them, which aids in a relaxing weekend. I will make reservations for a group dinner on Saturday evening like we did in 2015 and we will most likely gather for a casual dinner on the patio of the Irish Pub at the resort on Friday evening. We will leave Tacoma at 8:30 am and pick up a north group along the way at the McDonalds (19808 44th Ave W, Lynnwood, WA 98037, take exit 181A from I-5 North). We will continue north to Ferndale and Fuel/rehab at the Pilot station exit 262. Then continue on towards Whistler. If you have not made this trip before it is very scenic and one of my favorite open car road trips.
We have 15 rooms reserved with a discount room rate. They are offering studio suites for $189 a night and 1 bedroom suites for $259 a night. The block is limited to 7 of each type of room, so the first to call and reserve a room will have preference on room type. They will hold the block until Mid Feb., but don't wait. They have asked that we book directly with Megan Carson at 604-966-5506. Tell her you are with NWClub Cobra when booking. You are free to book elsewhere if you would like, however it is tough to connect with the group and coordinate activities if you go down that road. Remember the room rates are in Canadian, not US, so they are really 30% off of that price because of the current exchange rate. Whistler is a very sought after summer trip location and the resort will sell out, so please don't push it out after Feb. or you may miss out on getting a room. Feel free to share with other Cobra folks and let's make this the best trip yet! If you have any questions ask away.

Thanks for organizing this trip once again. Judy and I are booked and looking forward to seeing everyone in Canada!


Jake 01-12-2017 02:18 PM

Great news Stephen! I just booked mine a few minutes ago.

Crapola, this may coincide with the Superformance SuperCruz in the Banff area.

Dates are still a little fluid there so I'll make the call on this as soon as I know where I stand there.

Jake 01-13-2017 07:11 PM

Did not even know there was a Superformance event in up there. Hope you can join us.

Done, all in, thanks Jake.

As a side note, these are the requirements for crossing and returning back across the border:

If you plan on joining the cruise you'll need one of the following to cross the border and return to the U.S.

The documents U.S. Citizens need to visit Canada and to return home:
US citizens can no longer cross the border, back into the US, from Canada, using only a driver's licence and birth certificate.
- U.S. Passport or
- NEXUS or FAST card (pre-approved low risk travellers only) or
- U.S. Passport Card or
- Enhanced driver's licence (EDL) (available in MI, NY, VT, WA.

Laurel and I are also booked again! So looking forward to this. Trying to get a couple of others from Kelowna to join us too.

Terry and Liz from the Cascade Cobra Club (Portland area) are in. Made reservations. Hope others from Portland get on board.

Jake 01-27-2017 07:08 PM

Just a friendly reminder to please make your room reservations soon. We will lose the room block soon and room selections are becoming more limited by the day. So if you are thinking about it, it is time to commit. Can't wait to see everyone!

Tried to book today. Left message with Megan. I'll call tomorrow.
I'm going but Sherry won't go unless our son in law get's his ID so he can come up with the trailer if needed. Guess she doesn't trust my ability to repair it. As if making it all the way home on a rebuilt rocker using grade 3 screw wasn't enough proof for her!!!

Jake 01-29-2017 08:15 PM

Skip, your mechanical abilities are top notch! I would drive to the east coast without a trailer with you ��.

We can batch it together.:LOL:

Dianne and I are going. Only 1-bedroom suites left which also have a queen pull out bed. Of course $30pp for more than 2 per room.

It's been a while since we have caught up with the troops, but this coupled with HAN17 in August, we are really looking forward to being with everyone once again.


Jake 02-08-2017 07:27 PM

Great news Kevin! Don't forget the wolf hats.

Saleen09 02-09-2017 09:40 PM


May be leaving Saturday afternoon/evening as we have a family function in Bellingham.
