Roger Soane, former general manager of the Fairmont Chateau Whistler and current chair of Tourism Whistler, has landed at the Nita Lake Lodge.
The Nita Lake Lodge announced Soane’s appointment as general manager on Thursday.
“Nita Lake Lodge is a true gem in Whistler and perfectly positioned to become the number one boutique hotel in Canada with a reputation for tailored experiences and leading hospitality,” Soane said in a release.
Soane left the Fairmont Chateau Whistler last year after nearly three years at the helm. He came to Whistler from Victoria, where he managed Fairmont’s Empress Hotel and was chair of Tourism Victoria.
Originally from London, England, Soane spent the first 16 years of his career as a chef, becoming an executive chef with Pan Pacific Hotels and Resorts before moving into senior management. He has worked in the hotel industry in Europe, Asia, North America and the Caribbean.
Pique app is back
The Pique app for iPhones is working once again.
The app ceased to work when we moved to our new website in late November. Diligent work by Chris Armstrong in Whistler and the crew at Desert Net in Tucson have got the app working with the website again.
Look for further improvements in the months ahead.
