Elemental Luxury in Whistler


Whistler is a place to truly feel in your element. Earth, air, fire and water. These forces have shaped the wild landscape and unique character of this mountain town. Explore how to deeply connect with nature

and yourself while discovering new enchanting things to do in Whistler.


Life in the Pacific North West is defined by its relationship with water. Home to lush misty forests, deep dependable snowfall, and ancient glacial ice, the elemental power and beauty of water flows all around us.

Beginning in late October, snow begins to fall, and Whistler is treated to deep snow-blanketed slopes until early May. The runs, chutes and trees of Whistler Blackcomb beckon to be explored, and there is no better home base for adventure than Fairmont Chateau Whistler. This landmark hotel at the base of Whistler Blackcomb offers Whistler’s only true ski-in/ski out experience.

First chair to last call, you have the best of Whistler at your doorstep. Off the slopes guests tap into the restorative power of water at the enviable slope-side pools and aromatherapy showers in the Fairmont Gold rooms. The perfect way to recover from a day of mountainous adventure.

For the most discerning bucket-listers, a must-do activity is a heli-tour to an ancient ice cave. The jewel-toned blue ice was formed centuries to millennia ago, making standing deep inside a glacial ice cave a feeling nothing short of surreal.


Ignite your spirit and warm your body and soul in Whistler. It’s impossible not to feel the most alive in a place where people live authentically passionate lives.

Whether gathering with friends and family around a roaring fire in the Mallard Lounge, or spending moments of stillness with your partner fireside on the pool deck with snow falling all around, Whistler just has a way of warming your heart.

The elemental power of fire is also the not-so-secret ingredient to some of the best dining in town. The Grill Room’s steaks are flame grilled to perfection, and the oh so indulgent fondue at the Chalet is just what you need after a day in the snow.


Feel grounded in a place that is both timeless and endlessly fresh and evolving.

While in Whistler, you can sip and savour delectable dining featuring farm-to-table and Ocean Wise sourced ingredients. Guests of Fairmont Chateau Whistler enjoy effortless access to some of the best dining outlets with the Four Diamond rated Grill Room, The Wildflower, The Mallard and Portobello on-site.

Whistler is also the perfect place to explore to feel more deeply connected to the earth. With soaring ancient forests, spectacular geological formations and winding trail systems, you can spend the day immersed in nature without ever needing to travel far.


Whistler is both metaphorically and literally a breath of fresh air. Its pristine alpine environment is the ideal place to take deep breaths and do activities that can take your breath away.

Catch some air on the world-class slopes of Whistler Blackcomb, soar between mountains on the World Record Breaking PEAK2PEAK Gondola, or feel the wind through your hair while zip lining. You can also take flight via a plane or helicopter flight. You will gain new perspective with a bird’s eye view of our Coastal Mountains and iconic landmarks like the Black Tusk. Post flight euphoria will leave you feeling light as air.


Possibly the most important element in Whistler is time. Its seasons quickly shift from summer sun, to fall foliage, and finally to a snow globe winter wonderland. There is no better time than now to plan a getaway to this unforgettable mountain destination to experience these elements for yourself.
