September, 2017 found the UmbrellaBars crew 6,069' up Whistler Mountain to install an umbrella bar on the new deck at Roundhouse Lodge. The 10 km drive up the winding mountain road each day was slow and snowy, but not a bad commute to this beautiful site - and we had bear sightings on most trips! The first couple of mornings started with shoveling the early season snow but did not hamper the construction process. Assistance from the Whistler Blackcomb Mountain Operations crew to transport the materials and equipment up the mountain to the site was key and much appreciated. With the site perched on the side of the mountain, the use of cranes and heavy equipment was essential.
Whiskey Jack’s Umbrella Bar is part of the renovated Roundhouse Lodge Terrace and Viewing Deck. The two new patios will add an additional 555 seats to the Roundhouse Lodge and will be completed fall 2017. The heated umbrella bar has 63 year-round patio seats overlooking Whistler Village at the Roundhouse Lodge. This Meissl large umbrella is a Type MR 12 meter with steel and glass wind walls.
