Meet the Patios of Fairmont Chateau Whistler

It’s the most wonderful time of the year – patio season has arrived in Whistler! Whether you’ve had a long day of biking on the mountain, enjoyed an afternoon on the greens, or simply relaxed lakeside, there’s nothing better than unwinding with friends and family on one of Fairmont’s patios! With nothing but sunshine in the forecast and summer adventures in full swing, we thought we’d take a moment to introduce you to our favourite summer après spots! The real question is, which one will you choose?

The Classic – The Mallard Patio
