Planning a Romantic Getaway to Whistler?
If you’re planning to spend Valentine’s Day in Whistler, we suggest the following for pure romance (and maybe some thrills!)
Stay: Fairmont Chateau Whistler – The Chateau can’t be beat! The accommodations, the service, and everyone’s favorite après lounge, The Mallard. And if skiing is part of your agenda, the Chateau has the best slopeside location in all of Whistler.
Play: Of course there’s skiing and snowboarding but if you want a truly unique romantic escape, take the plunge together. Nothing says ”trust” like jumping from a 160ft bridge spanning 300 feet over the glacier-fed Cheakamus River. For the ultimate intimate experience you can even jump naked (…maybe keep the naked jump for summer!)
Relax: Book some time for the two of you to soak in the soothing outdoor baths at Whistler’s most unique spa at Scandanave Spa. Engulfed in a spruce and cedar forest and overlooking mountain vistas and Whistler Blackcomb’s scenic valleys, the spa’s hot baths and refreshing waterfalls are sure to melt the world away.
Feel like sticking closer to your home-away-from-home? Recharge mountainside at the Chateau. Slip into the heated outdoor pool or one of the hot tubs. Warm up in the cedar barrel saunas, or cozy up by the fire with a warm beverage. Fairmont Chateau Whistler’s pool deck is the perfect place to sit back and relax.
Dine: What could be more romantic than an evening under the stars, in your own heated, private dining dome. New to the Chateau, each dome has a unique experience including featured drinks and cozy, alpine-chic décor. Indulge in a five-course gourmet menu along with featured beverages and pairings from; Stella Artois, Fever-Tree, Roche Wines and Blasted Church. Reservations are required for this truly romantic dinner experience and we suggest you book well in advance.
Explore: Described by some as “the ultimate winter date night”, Vallea Lumina (The Winter Journey) is a must-do magical experience. Just 10 minutes from Whistler Village, the 45 minute adventure is a multimedia nightwalk through an enchanted forest. The pictures say it all.
