Nestled at the foot of Blackcomb, you’ll find the Four Seasons - Canada’s only AAA Five Diamond resort. Few mountain residences can boast such a combination of scenic grandeur, welcoming luxury and family-friendly touches. The luxury hotel has fluff factor in abundance: the rooms are like heavenly cocoons, featuring cosy wood interiors, gas-burning fireplaces and bathrooms that are as lavish as they are enormous. Guests will appreciate the hotel shuttle for quick and easy access to the slopes of Whistler Blackcomb, the exclusive Ski Elite instruction programme and the services of a dedicated ski concierge, who whisks skis, boots and poles to the nearby lift for hassle-free access to the slopes. Piste exertions are rewarded by sumptuous dining and deep relaxation at the Four Seasons Whistler. Sidecut is a modern steakhouse, whilst Sidecut Bar offers all-day bistro dining to the accompaniment of an open fire and alpine views. The world-class Four Seasons spa, heated outdoor pool and whirlpools can be enjoyed year-round. Parents are invited to sample British Columbia’s finest wines served with canapés at a daily Manager’s wine reception. The resort is only minutes away from Whistler village; escape the slopes to browse the boutique shops before indulging in traditional alpine cuisine.
Golf soars to new heights at Four Seasons Resort and Residences Whistler, where you're invited to tee off from a mountain-top. The experience begins after finishing a round on one of three championship courses. On the 18th green, meet your personal PGA pro and board a private helicopter to fly 2,438 metres (8,000 feet) to the elevated 19th Hole, where you will be greeted with appetizers and your favourite cocktails. Then it's tee time - with tips from your pro, set your personal record for the longest drive ever - and perhaps make the shot of the day.
Adventure leads to serenity as you take a private helicopter flight over Pemberton Ice Cap - British Columbia’s largest and southernmost ice field - to touch down for a guided ice cave tour. Next, you’ll travel to remote hot springs where you can indulge in the warm mineral pools enveloped by remarkable mountainous landscapes. A Four Seasons Spa Therapist will be on hand to pamper you with a treatment of your choice and an on-site personal Chef will prepare a choice of mouth-watering local dishes to serve to you poolside.
Kids will love cookie decorating with Executive Chef Tory Martindale. If this leaves them craving more delicious baked goodies, head to Purebread bakery - across the street from the Resort - where the whole family can enjoy delectable treats, breads and other baked delights.
Quality time is toasting marshmallows for s’mores at the resort’s outside fire pit with the entire family, before returning inside to the lobby to sip hot chocolate with all of the fixings.
The best time to visit Whistler is in the winter months. With plenty of powder, an array of winter sports choices and extraordinary festivals, it is suitable for both skiers and non-skiers alike. Whistler is currently going through La Nina so be sure to pack plenty of layers and a warm winter jacket. The best hotels in Whistler tend to get fully booked quite far in advance for the winter season; we recommend you book your next luxury ski holiday as soon as possible.
