Whistler Blackcomb is one of the world’s most exciting ski resorts and an absolute must ski destination for all skiers and boarders alike.
Whistler is North America’s largest ski resort and has a fantastic snow record with skiing from mid November to well after Easter. There are two interconnected mountains with over 8,000 acres of legendary skiing, a fantastic pedestrian friendly village and a lively nightlife. This is one of our favourite resorts in North America and ticks all the boxes both on and off the slopes.
There’s no shortage of accommodation options in North America’s largest ski area so here’s our run down on the ‘best of the best’ for those looking to enjoy a bit of luxury while in Whistler.
The Fairmont Chateau Whistler is the signature property in Whistler sitting at the foot of Blackcomb mountain in the prime slope-side location directly opposite the new Blackcomb Gondola. The Fairmont Chateau Whistler has everything you would expect from a luxury 5* hotel. It offers superb accommodation and a wide array of on-site facilities including a total of six different dining options from relaxed dining on the deck in the Mallard Lounge to fine dining at the sophisticated Grill Room. You can relax after your day on the slopes in the extensive Health Club & Spa with its outdoor heated lap pool and three outdoor heated hot-tubs.
For an extra special memory, book a night at the Chalet restaurant, where you will travel from the hotel on an old-fashioned sleigh ride over to the Chalet, where the winter menu features a range of Swiss style alpine cuisine and fondue dishes.
The Four Seasons resort is conveniently located just a few minutes from Blackcomb Mountain and offers a ski concierge service at the foot of the slopes. This is great for those who don’t like carrying all their gear back to their room at the end of the ski day and it has the added bonus that your boots will be warm and dry the next day when you want to hit the slopes.
The hotel exudes five-star luxury with spacious rooms and superb facilities including a stunning spa, indoor and outdoor pools, as well as hot tubs. The kids will also love the free hot chocolate and s’mores served next to the fire-pit!
After your day on the slopes relax at the Sidecut Restaurant and try the prime Canadian steaks, sit on the heated terrace at the Sidecut Bar or head to the heated pool that offers panoramic views of the mountain.
The 5 star Westin Resort & Spa has a fantastic location at the top of Whistler Village just a few steps away from the village Gondolas that give you access to both Whistler and Blackcomb mountains. Located in the heart of the village, all of Whistler’s shops, restaurants and apres’ scene are located within easy walking distance.
