Discover scenic Whistler with Inspirato while staying at an incredible hotel: the castle-like Fairmont Chateau Whistler. The iconic resort — named one of Condé Nast Traveler’s “Favorite Hotels in the World” — sits at the base of Blackcomb Mountain, offering ski-in, ski-out access. It’s a bastion of sophistication and an epicenter of outdoor recreation, no matter the time of year.
The twin peaks of Whistler and Blackcomb combine to form the largest ski resort in North America. Experience the Coast Mountains of British Columbia on 200 marked runs, 16 alpine bowls, and three glaciers. No matter when you visit Whistler, Mother Nature pulls out all the stops; the prolific winter snowfall melts to create thundering waterfalls come spring. Go mountain biking or hiking amid glacier fields and rugged peaks. On a heli-hike excursion, soar above the treeline in a helicopter and touch down in unspoiled wilderness. Leave time to explore Garibaldi Provincial Park, which offers a diverse mix of coastal rainforest, glaciers, and turquoise-hued lakes.
Prepare for an entirely new way to refresh yourself at Scandinave Spa Whistler. Located slightly north of Whistler, this authentic Scandinavian spa is worth the short drive. Start with a massage, end with a Scandinavian bath.
If you have ever wanted to see Whistler's black bears, experienced guides can take you directly to their natural habitat in a 4x4 vehicle. While you watch them meander, learn about the roles bears play in the local ecosystem.
The absolute best views in Whistler begin more than 400 meters above the valley floor. The PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola connects the tops of Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, traveling almost 4.5 kilometers in the air along the way.
Open summer and winter, Ziptrek EcoTours offers fast paced, peak-to-peak zipline tours. Fly over creeks and rainforests from morning to twilight. If some in your group prefer to travel by foot, take a stroll along the canopy walk.
Good luck finding this elsewhere; the Feel the Beet cocktail at Fifty Two 80 Bistro & Bar uses only local ingredients, including beet infused Schramm Gin, strawberries, balsamic reduction, Township 7 white wine and local honey.
Is bungee jumping on your bucket list? Check it off after a leap from the bridge about the glacial-fed Cheakamus River. The operators has more than 17 years of experience and a flawless safety record.
British Columbia's mountain weather is part of the adventure. A combo of altitude and moisture from the Pacific can sometimes create perfect storms for big-time snow accumulation. Winter months can also feature stretches of "bluebird" skies, bright sunshine and warm temperatures. Warm breezes often usher in afternoon rain, and you can expect a slight chill when the sun sets.
