One of North America’s top mountain resorts, and host of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, Whistler is an ideal family resort. Nestled at the foot of the Blackcomb side of Whistler’s twin giants, is the Four Seasons. This luxury hotel and resort combines rustic mountain charm with modern European elegance and has been awarded the prestigious AAA Five Diamond Award®. This can be seen in the hotel’s services such as the ski concierge who will arrange your equipment and have it prepared and ready for you for each day on the slopes.
There is a wide range of accommodation, suitable for couples and families alike, designed in a cosy, wooden lodge style. All rooms and suites have stone fireplaces and enjoy superb views of the mountains and surrounding forests from a private balcony or terrace. The bathrooms are spacious and luxurious with deep soaking tubs.
After a hard day on the slopes, enjoy the world-class spa with fifteen treatment rooms providing a superb choice of therapies including massage (also available in room), hydro-therapy, couples treatments and beauty therapy. The luxurious treatments use the most natural products including seaweed, fresh fruits, wild flowers, pure essential oils and clay harvested from British Columbia’s glacial lakes. Those looking for an après-ski warm down can also make use of the complimentary fully equipped gym and the beautiful outdoor free-form swimming pool. Alternatively, relax in the heated pool or have a cocktail in the hot tub.
The Four Seasons Whistler has a very good restaurant, Sidecut Modern Steak and Bar, open for breakfast and dinner, where guests can enjoy the fabulous views of the surrounding mountains sat beside a roaring fire. Sidecut serves up a wide variety of regional meats, including Canadian prime beef from Alberta and British Columbia fallow venison loin, and entrees sourced from the nearby Pacific Ocean and local mountain lakes, such as Queen Charlotte Sound halibut or wild Chinook salmon. Alternatively, relax and soak up the atmosphere in the Sidecut Bar which serves lunch and dinner daily, along with some great cocktails. The resort has an extensive cellar with over 200 wines. Alternatively, take the short walk into Whistler and sample the resort’s many bars and restaurants.
