Mezzanine Patio
The Mezzanine Patio’s 5,000 sq ft of decking floats into the forest and allows guests a view of Blackcomb Mountain. 2,500 sq ft of patio is covered in retractable awnings creating an outdoor weather-resistant event space. A fire pit provides a wonderful ambiance for after-dinner drinks and story-telling — a great setting to start or end a sit-down dinner.

*Awnings cannot hold snow load so should not be relied upon during winter months.
