Nita Getaway?

Those of you who know me have either had the pleasure of meeting or have heard me bandy about the name, Praveen Varshney.

Praveen, my very first investor, is an example of networking with anyone and everyone (he was my neighbor in Vancouver), as well as how entrepreneurial success comes from the integration of risk taking and gut instinct (he believed in me long before my books became best-sellers). He’s also worthy of high praise due to the fact that as a business person he’s found the perfect marriage between commerce and community in a way few others have (from hosting Halloween fireworks for the neighborhood to funding a library in India…he’s a giver).

So having put my cards on the table (yes, I have a little of bit of a crush), I want to tell you about one of Praveen’s new investments: Nita Lodge in Whistler, British Columbia. This past May, in celebration of my friend Jenn’s 40th birthday (she’d want me to mention she got carded this weekend), I headed out west to my old hometown and took Praveen up on his offer to hunker down at the lodge.    Now, I spend more time on the road traveling for work than I do at home and consider myself a quite a connoisseur of lodging experiences. I know to bring my own shampoo to the Mosaic in LA and to pack a thin pillow for EPIC in Miami, but Nita?  You don’t need to bring a thing and you’ll never want to leave.

Pictures are the only way to do this place justice but sadly, my camera is shit and didn’t actually download the majority of my shots, so I’m going with the promo shots and my own commentary.    If you’re looking for a  place to get hitched, need to impress your boss with a suggestion for a company retreat or just want to get away for the weekend (if you’re single, there are a ton of hot guys in Whistler), you gotta hit Nita.

How gorgeous is this? Heaven on earth.

    I am sitting here in my cubicle thinking “Ah if only I could be there right now” At least it’s Friday.
