With a commanding presence at the base of Blackcomb Mountain, turreted Fairmont Chateau Whistler is all decadence and luxury in an alpine setting. The views of the mountains are unbeatable, whether dressed in winter snow or bare and beautiful come summer.

When being amid the very best ski action is non-negotiable, Fairmont Chateau Whistler has your back. This is an enormous ski-in, ski-out resort with bags of prestige for an extra-special break in one of Canada’s finest ski resorts. The Fairmont Chateau Whistler is the sort of place that’s all about the thoughtful extras. Designated Snow Hosts wait at the bottom of Blackcomb Mountain to press velvety hot chocolate into the mittened hands of their pampered guests. The hotel is all cosy alpine feels, contemporary enough for a discerning urban clientele (particularly in the smarter gold level rooms) but traditional enough to appeal to Fairmont brand loyalists. The wood-panelled lounge is lit with roaring open fires and is a popular spot to curl up with something befittingly warming after a slap-up meal in one of the hotel’s hotly acclaimed restaurants. Fairmont Chateau is a base for adventurers year-round. While skiing takes centre stage in winter, it’s by no means the only activity. Biking, hiking, and golfing draw sporty types to experience the snowless mountains and milder climes in summer. Whatever form of exertion takes your fancy, be sure to book some time in the spa after or a dip in the outdoor whirlpool.
