Whistler in the Winter: Part Two

On top of the world in Whistler!

You know a travel destination is a true gem when you can easily write not one, not two, but three blogs on the same location! I’ve written a blog on Whistler in the winter, and Whistler in the summer, but I still feel compelled to share my experiences once again as I’ve come across another round of great finds.

For a list of my favourite hotels in Whistler, see my first piece (January 2016)

If you’re looking for more of a livable space, with a kitchen and laundry, Evolution in the Creekside Village is a fantastic option. We stayed in a two bedroom, two bathroom condo. The building has two large hot tubs, a heated pool, steam room and sauna and it was never overly busy. Possibly the biggest plus to this accommodation is that it’s ski in/ski out. There’s a small grocery store in the same complex and a gas station and pizza place serving super delicious food across the street. Since it’s ski in/ski out, you won’t need to head to the main Whistler village much, but when you do, it’s only a 5 minute drive (or approximately a 45 minute walk on the Valley Trail with stunning views).

The Valley Trail connect’s all of Whistler’s neighbourhoods. So good!

If you’re looking to treat your body right, or in need of some healing and repair, I highly recommend Haven Health and Massage Therapy in the Nesters complex. The ultimate combo would be a treatment at Haven, then the waters at Scandinave Spa.

For the perfect romantic and relaxed dining experience, the Grill Room at the Fairmont is the place to be. High ceilings, with rustic chandeliers, a warm fire as a focal point, and soft lighting create a truly cozy environment.

You might choose to simply stick around the Fairmont for a nightcap as it’s definitely one of the nicer environments in Whistler, but if you want to mix it up, head into the village and try getting a spot at the intimate bar Oso.
