Four Seasons Resort and Residences – Whistler

Patrons have access to a wooden sauna and signature Canadian massage treatments to top off a day on some of the most stunning slopes in British Columbia.
Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise
Lake Louise, Alberta
Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise hasn’t been named Canada’s #1 ski resort on more than a couple of occasions for nothing. Gorgeous scenery and extensive mountains set the backdrop for this magnificent resort. Skiers have noted that the area’s mix of slopes, runs, and chutes leave Lake Louise unrivaled. Guests can get some much-needed rejuvenation after venturing around Victoria Glacier and other sites at the resort’s spa, which includes a full team of spa therapists that specialize in over 20 unique treatments and services.
Sunshine Mountain Lodge
Located on the Continental Divide, Sunshine Mountain Lodge is gifted with more snow than other hills and ranges close by, making it an attractive choice for skiers. It’s also famous for being the only ski-in, ski-out hotel in Banff National Park. While skiers of all experience levels can find fun, Wild West and Delirium Dive bring a unique challenge for experts that can’t be found anywhere else. Visitors who want a break from the terrain are welcome to schedule a massage, facial, or other specialty treatment at the lodge’s spa.
Kananaskis Mountain Lodge, Autograph Collection
Kananaskis Village, Alberta
Kananaskis Mountain Lodge, Autograph Collection is a must-see for skiers, as these Nakiska slopes previously set the stage for Canada’s 1988 Winter Olympics. The mountain offers skiers plenty of alpine terrain options to explore, including a slew of easier runs for eager beginners. Lodgers can spend some time off the mountain visiting nearby Calgary or stopping by the resort’s full-service Nordic spa. From hydrotherapy to massage treatments and more, the Kananaskis Mountain Lodge delivers the look and feel of a mountaintop oasis.
Rimrock Resort Hotel
The Rimrock Resort Hotel is renowned for its breathtaking views and beauty. It’s found right by Mount Norquay, which features 60 runs over 190 acres. Unlike other slopes in and around Banff, Norquay also has its own mixed terrain park, providing skiers the ability to freestyle to their heart’s delight. Back at the resort, the Rimrock Resort Hotel is known for its luxury spa treatments that combine both ancient and contemporary techniques for total mind and body rest and relaxation.
