At Whistler's premier address, families can explore North America's largest ski area in unrivalled comfort. Renowned as one of the best Four Seasons hotels, the resort guarantees younger guests are cared for with welcome cookies, chocolate-dipped marshmallows, junior bathrobes, slippers, a DVD library and child-sized buffet counter at breakfast. A snow paradise for all ages, off-site there are sleigh rides, skating under the stars, heli-skiing, dog sledding, zip wiring through frosted trees and campfire dinners. Warm up back at the ranch in the outdoor heated pool. Whistler itself buzzes with energy during ski season: don’t miss the weekly Fire & Ice Show.
