Why Fairmont Chateau Whistler is the True Whistler experience

The world comes to Whistler for so many exhilarating reasons. Why does the world come to Fairmont Chateau Whistler?

Elegantly poised at the base of the mountain, deeply immersed in the awe-inspiring landscape and adventure-seeking culture of Whistler, Fairmont Chateau Whistler has long been renowned for what it offers to visitors and locals alike: community, inclusion, genuine connection, and immersive experience.

A True Landmark Property

The Chateau is Whistler’s most authentic luxury resort experience. Its design and location stand as a grand castle-style monument at the base of Blackcomb Mountain. The Resort represents the essence of Whistler for its location, service, and adventure, and you will always receive a unique and warm Canadian welcome.

The True local experience –  Whistler Experience Guides

You will get the real Whistler experience with a local guide for daily mountain adventures. From skiing the best slopes in Whistler and Blackcomb, snowshoeing, visiting a local art gallery, to other off-the-beaten-track activities, you will learn everything from local knowledge. This exclusive opportunity is included as part of the resort experience fee.

Ski-in, Ski- Out

A true luxury of proximity: there is no need to drive up the mountain or carry your gear from the hotel to the elevator. Simply walk out the door and head straight to the gondola. In addition, the ski valet picks up your gear the moment you check into the hotel, or to their final triumphant stop of the day at the bottom of the mountain.

Infinite gastronomic experiences

From seasonally inspired menus to dining experiences that will satisfy any craving, Fairmont Chateau Whistler features a unique collection of restaurants and family dining venues that capture the true essence of Whistler.

Whether you’re looking for something casual like an après-ski drink at The Mallard Lounge, an intimate and decadent winter menu including savory fondues and artisanal charcuterie at The Chalet, fresh pastries in the morning, or a Portobello takeout dinner, or something a little more intimate like a private dinner at The Grill Room — you won’t have to venture any further.
