WHISTLER BOUND: WHERE TO STAY

At the very heart of North America’s
most popular ski and outdoor adventure
capital, about a two hour drive north
from Canada’s beloved Vancouver is
Whistler, British Columbia, where
you will find a hotel that feels like your
‘second home’. Framed with mountains
on all sides and conveniently located just
steps from the Whistler and Blackcomb
lifts, the Sundial Boutique Hotel offers
a chic, contemporary place to unwind
after a day in the mountains or shopping
in the village. World-class dining expe-
riences are also very close at hand
including Trattoria di Umberto, which is
right across the street. The recently
renovated hotel suites offer village or
mountain views, a well-equipped kitchen
and a handful of suites even have a
private hot tub with a view. Make sure to
book your stay far in advance as this
popular boutique hotel with its ideal
location tends to fill up early. Enjoy!

WHISTLER BOUND: WHAT TO DO

Whistler Village and the surrounding areas simply beckon adventure, exploration
(a part of our destiny) and excitement. One of the ‘must-do’ experiences is to ride
Guinness World Record-breaking PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola that spanns across the
valley, connecting Whistler mountain to Blackcomb mountain. The combination of
two mountains offers over 50 kms of hiking trails, vistas that overload the senses,
free and custom guided tours are in every direction you look. The array of venues,
both indoors and out, are seemingly endless. Contact Jessica Skilton at [email protected]
resorts.com to find out just what is possible for your big day!
One thing that almost everyone requests as an absolute necessity is a trip to the Spa.
Whistler’s own Scandinave Spa offers full public access for sauna, steam room,
jacuzzi and relaxation areas for a small fee. The rustic installations hug the edge of

Lost Lake Park in a forest setting, help-
ing to de-stress from everyday life.
Indulge in the full experience and book
for a body massage of your choice.

Walking around Whistler Village can
make one self rather hungry. Perhaps
the oldest and most established pizza
joints, Avalanche Pizza, is the go-to
when on the run.
