The Fairmont Chateau Whistler enjoys one of the best positions in the resort. With direct access to Blackcomb Mountain, it has some of North America's finest skiing right on its doorstep. The main village is just a ten minute walk away, but you'll find plenty around the hotel itself in the upper village. You'll receive a really warm welcome here, and nothing is too much trouble. Being met by the ski valet at the bottom of the slopes each day, is a real treat.
The Fairmont is an elegant hotel, with comfortable and spacious rooms, many of which are perfect for families, and overlook the mountains and the village. The hotel has an exceptionally wide choice of restaurants and bars. From the Wildflower which serves locally inspired food to the Grill Room whose specialty is surf and turf. Guests can enjoy afternoon tea or one of the many beers on offer in the Mallard Lounge, or a deli style snack at Portobello. A good winter choice is the fondue at The Chalet, and you'll often find live entertainment in one or more of the venues. The Vida Spa and Health Club has state of the art equipment, where early risers can enjoy a swim in the outdoor heated lap pool, followed by breakfast. The pool even has underwater music! There are indoor and outdoor whirlpools, sauna and steam rooms - all perfect for a post ski wind down. And how about sitting in the hot tub with a cocktail surrounded by snow and mountains?
Whistler was host to the 2010 Winter Olympic Games and is an ideal family resort.
