Where to Stay: Splurge on a luxurious stay at Canada’s only AAA Five Diamond property, the Four Seasons Resort Whistler. You can pick up s’mores and hot chocolate in the lobby while you check-in, and new skiers can get help from the dedicated Ski Concierge for all their rental, lift passes, shuttle, and other skiing needs. Stunning mountain views, an award-winning spa, a heated outdoor pool, and a daily wine tasting reception — what more could you possibly ask for?
What to Do: Non-skiers, worry not; there’s plenty to do in this winter wonderland. Any snow sport you could possibly think of, Whistler has it: heli-skiing, tubing, luging, tobogganing, snowmobiling. The weekly Fire and Ice show features skiers and snowboarders performing death-defying acts with rings of fire. Crystal Hut Fondue transports you via snowmobile to a traditional fondue dinner perched 6,000 ft. atop Blackcomb (warm cheese on a cold winter’s eve? Yes, please!). At the end of a long day of skiing and eating, relax with your companions at the Scandinave Spa, where you can bask in the 25,000 square foot outdoor spa surrounded by incredible mountain vistas.
