Why we choose Fairmont Chateau Whistler

The only luxury ski-in/ski-out resort in Whistler

  • The spa’s holistic approach blends ancient Ayurveda principles and modern practices
  • Get Reebok workout apparel, MP3 players and yoga mats delivered to your room
  • The Grill Room’s intimate private dining accommodates up to 18 guests

Fairmont Chateau Whistler does double duty as an impeccably elegant resort and top-notch ski-in/ski-out lodge. It’s so good, the Fairmont is regularly named Canada’s #1 golf resort and #1 ski resort. This “sophisticated mountain chic” approach means that you not only get direct access to over 8,100 powdery acres, but you’ll be surrounded by haute décor and amenities—courtesy of multi-million-dollar annual renovations—when you’re done.

What you need to know about the hotel

The resort is an homage to historical Canadian chateaux, but with ultra-modern conveniences

  • The pool deck—the largest in Whistler—is a favorite, thanks to indoor and outdoor pools, three hot tubs and a redesigned health club
  • The Chalet offers a unique dining experience: a three-course fondue dinner in front of a crackling fire, followed by a horse-drawn sleigh ride
  • The Robert Trent Jones Jr.–designed Golf Club has 18 holes that traverse creeks, ponds, ancient Douglas firs and granite rock faces

When it comes to mountain luxury, it doesn’t get much better than the Fairmont Chateau Whistler. The property’s 539 rooms and suites fuse rustic Canadian antiques and a grand design scheme for an aesthetic that’s both historic and contemporary. The entry-level rooms are lovely, but you can up the posh factor with a specialty suite or the Fairmont Gold experience (standard with 57 of the rooms and suites), which includes an exclusive lounge, day-long snacks and beverages and a dedicated service team.

All of the golfing, skiing and outdoor activities will work up an appetite, so it’s a good thing there are half a dozen restaurant and lounge choices—everything from up-market steaks to fondue to an onsite bakery. Other leisure options include the health club and fitness center, tennis courts and spa. Visiting in summer? There's tons to do. Ziplining, kayaking and bear watching, for starters.

Where is it and what's nearby

Surrounded by soaring peaks, the Fairmont has pride of place at the base of Whistler’s Blackcomb Mountain

  • Downhill skiing is a thrill on more than 8,100 acres, or try the Tube Park’s eight 1,000-foot-long lanes with state-of-the-art conveyor lift
  • Ditch the skis, and explore the Whistler Blackcomb alpine on foot, choosing any of the 20 mountain top trails
  • Daily bear viewing and ecology tours during the summer offer education on wildlife, vegetation, glaciers and rainforests of Whistler and Blackcomb mountains

Fairmont Chateau Whistler is located in Whistler Valley, north of Vancouver, British Columbia. Whistler is the fastest-growing municipality in British Columbia, thanks in part to a lofty reputation exemplified by awards like “Top Ski Resort in North America” for the past decade. But even non-outdoorsy types will enjoy Whistler Village, with its fun shopping areas, top-notch restaurants and picture-perfect streets.

The area (and the resort itself) is a highly versatile vacation choice. Of course snow skiing is its best known attraction—Whistler and Blackcomb mountains combined have over 200 runs and 33 ski lifts—but Fairmont Chateau Whistler is the only Whistler resort to own its own golf course. That course, the Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club, is ranked #1 in Canada by many golf publications.

How to enjoy British Columbia

True, natives of British Columbia are blessed with a stunning outdoors, but even the most city-dwelling of Vancouver residents are known to really love heading out, whether to go ice sailing in Whistler, bear tracking in a provincial park or simply sunbathing along the beautiful coastline

  • Saddle-up to take in wonderful views and lungfuls of superfresh air as you explore the many forest and mountain trails by horseback
  • Explore the backcountry and virgin snow of the Whistler Blackcomb winter resorts with an experienced guide
  • When you’ve had your fill of the wilderness, recharge in the urban sophistication of Vancouver’s  spas, bars and Chinese restaurants

Q: How do you clear a pool of 200 Canadians? A: Simply say: “Could you please leave the pool”. It may be the repertoire of a stand-up comedian, but the ring of truth will echo long in the acoustically-enhanced fjords of British Columbia. The fact is that when you combine such delicious courtesy with the in-your-face ruggedness of British Columbia’s great outdoors, the result is utterly intoxicating.

There’s plenty of opportunity to get up close and personal with BC’s wilderness. Whether schussing Whistler’s steeper powdered faces, exploring the dirt trails of Vancouver’s Stanley Park, or using a kayak excursion to spot whale, porpoise or bear, BC has it and then some. The highlight? Too many to choose from, but why not start with a train journey over Stoney Creek Bridge? Just one word of advice; don’t look down.

    When to visit British Columbia

    Visit in late summer or early autumn to see bears catching salmon swimming upstream. Winter is a must if you are to take advantage of the region’s legendary powder. Spring and summer are great times to go whale watching.
