This luxury resort nestled in the mountains comes equipped with ski-in, ski-out access to Whistler Blackcomb Mountains, an indoor/outdoor pool, fitness room, steam rooms, sauna, and spa with four whirlpools to massage achy après-ski muscles. After a day spent exploring the mountain or carving out tracks in the hotel, guests with activity-boosted appetites can head to any of several chateau restaurants and lounges for afternoon tea, locally inspired dinner, or a relaxing glass of BC wine. The welcoming staff at The Fairmont Chateau Whistler ensures that guests receive top treatment while keeping the environment in mind with numerous green initiatives that reduce the ecological snowshoe print on the earth.
