Hotels provide an ideal escape when you need a rejuvenating getaway, homes are being remodelled, or garages won't stop complaining about the old bikes caught between their teeth. Escape overhead door gum flapping with today's Groupon: for $299, you get a one-night stay and three-course classic fondue dinner for two at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler (up to a $600 value). Buyers planning a winter getaway should note that this Groupon expires March 13, 2011.
This luxury resort nestled in the mountains comes equipped with ski-in, ski-out access to Whistler and 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 and cheese cravings can head to The Chalet for a magical, melted meal. Start with a salad before moving on to your choice of tongue-encasing cheese fondue, including such options as Asiago & Fontina, Black Truffle, or Sundried Tomato & Cheese, and finish with a sinful chocolate fondue dessert accompanied by dippable fruit and sweets, an easier means to consumption than convincing fruit to dunk itself. The Chalet is closed every Tuesday and Wednesday. 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.
