3 Night - Winter Getaway

3 Night - Winter Getaway


Day 1:

Morning:

Travel on the scenic Sea to Sky highway to Whistler by scheduled coach service.

Afternoon:

Unwind and stroll through Whistler's vibrant pedestrian village. Powerful, alpine magic filters from the peaks and throughout the heart of Whistler's unique, pedestrian-only Village where visitors and locals congregate to relax, refresh, dine and shop.  With over 200 shops and over 90 restaurants, cafes, and bars, you will find everything you need just steps from your accommodation.

Evening:

Experience an unforgettable snowshoe fondue tour through the forest guided by the light of the moon and the endlessly starry sky. Follow the trail right to the doors of one of Whistler's best restaurants, then kick off your snowshoes and sit down to a truly Canadian meal.


Day 2:

Morning:

This morning, let's get introduced to skiing or snowboarding at Whistler Blackcomb. Spend a full day with an instructor that will teach you the basics of these winter sports.

Every year Mother Nature blesses Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains with an annual average of 10.22 meters (33.5 feet) of snowfall. Now combine all that glorious and consistent snowfall with more than 8,100 acres of skiable terrain (the most in North America), 200 trails, 12 alpine bowls, 38 lifts and a vibrant and electric pedestrian-only alpine village - and it's easy to see why Whistler is consistently named the number one ski resort in North America. Enjoy the rest of the day on the mountains skiing or snowboarding. Or, spend a full day with an instructor that will teach you the basics of these winter sports or help the more experienced skiers and snowboarders enhance your skills.

And if that wasn't enough - check out the record-breaking PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola, an engineering marvel that links together Blackcomb and Whistler Mountains at their peaks. Boasting the longest unsupported lift span in the world at 3.024 kilometres (1.88 miles), it's also the highest lift of its kind at 435 metres/1,427 feet.

Afternoon:

Apres ski is a big Whistler tradition. Whether it's location, music, food, or atmosphere that's important, there's an apr's spot in Whistler to fit any skier or snowboarder's fancy.

If you need to relax your sore muscles why not head to Whistler's newest spa, Le Scandinave Spa, just outside of the main village to relax and rejuvenate. Open until 9pm daily. This spectacular outdoor spa, engulfed in a forest of spruce and overlooking Mount Sproatt, offers the experience of hydrotherapy in the heart of nature. Occurring in three stages, just a few hours are required to fully enjoy the benefits of hydrotherapy. In sequence, first heat the body in the Eucalyptus steam bath, hot baths or wood burning Finnish sauna. Then, cool the body quickly in the Nordic waterfalls, cold baths or shower. Finally, relax in the solariums or enjoy our outdoor relaxation areas with fireplace and hammocks

Evening:

Enjoy a truly Canadian winter experience with a sleigh ride and fondue dinner. This magical evening begins with a hot beverage as you gather around an outdoor fire pit, then tuck yourself into the sleigh for a 30-minute ride under the stars. Returning to the Chalet, a crackling fire and delicious 3-course fondue dinner await.


Day 3:

Morning:

Rise and shine early this morning to make the most of your day and head up for a Fresh Tracks Breakfast. Whistler Blackcomb's Fresh Tracks offers early birds a mountain-sized breakfast buffet and early loading privileges on Whistler Mountain. Upload to the Roundhouse Lodge on the Whistler Mountain Gondola between 7:30 am and 8:30 am. As soon as Whistler Patrol gives the okay on Whistler mountain avalanche clearance, you're free to hit the open runs on the upper half of the mountain. A must-do experience while in Whistler!

Afternoon:

This afternoon discover Whistler's surrounding area with a snowmobile tour.  Snowmobiling is a treasured Whistler activity that's fun for everyone including families. You can ride solo or as a passenger (It can be less expensive riding as a passenger). If you aren't a skier or just need a break from the mountain then try snowmobiling. Expect hours of uninterrupted and high-powered snowmobiling fun that can't be compared!

Experience the next best thing to flying with a thrilling zipline adventure.  Safely glide high over rushing creeks, valleys and old growth forests in a laugh-out-loud, unique activity that's perfect for the whole family. You won't believe how fun it can be.

Afternoon:

A trip to Whistler would not be complete without experiencing some of our local history. Visit the Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre, dedicated to the history and culture of Whistler's first inhabitants, the local First Nations people.

Grab some lunch at the Cultural Centre's café; their indigenous-inspired menu offers up tasty options like Squamish salmon chowder, Lil'wat venison chili and maple sugar pie. A must try is the traditional bannock - fried flat bread that melts in your mouth! Filled with Aboriginal art, wood carvings, crafts, interactive displays, exhibits and demonstrations, there's also an outdoor interpretive forest walk featuring a Lil'wat Istken and Squamish Longhouse. Don't miss the spectacular 15-minute film showcasing both traditional and modern cultures.

Make your way back to your hotel for your transfer back to Vancouver.
