Ultimate Guide To A Whistler Girls’ Weekend

When I’m planning a getaway with my girls, there are three things on my must-have list: an amazing pool, easy access to activities, and delectable dining options (including a large cocktail list). Fairmont Chateau Whistler has all that and more. Nestled in the mountains and a short distance from Vancouver, it’s only the place to go when much-needed time with the girls calls.

Friday – Arrive & Revive

With check-in at 4 PM, why not clock off work early and make the most of your weekend? Once you’ve dropped your bags off in your suites and everyone’s arrived, it’s time to venture to the Mallard Lounge for cocktails and catch-ups.

Sit back and enjoy signature blends of house-infused spirits from the master mixologists while making the most of the warm evening sun and stunning mountain scenery on our patio.

As you settle into the evening, revel in the delicious creations of The Mallard’s menu. With options of sandwiches, burgers, salads, pasta, fresh fish, soup and charcuterie, there’s something for everyone. Following a delightful evening together, simply make the short distance upstairs to your suite and continue the conversations in your cozy living room. Our suites offer the perfect setting for you to spend time all together to catch up. When you’re finally ready to turn in, you’ll melt into pure luxury knowing you’ve got a great weekend ahead.

Saturday – Recover & Discover


After a restful sleep, start your first morning in the best way. Every room comes equipped with a yoga mat so you can treat yourself to a stretch and some in-room yoga. Alternatively, you can join one of our daily onsite yoga classes to start your day feeling revitalized and refreshed. With so many popular amenities and experiences, it’s important to sign up in advance to ensure you and your girls don’t miss out.

Next, visit the hotel’s signature restaurant, the Wildflower, which offers contemporary Pacific Northwest cuisine. Its warm and inviting atmosphere makes it the ideal location for breakfast. Become nourished as you savour innovative classics ahead of your afternoon of activities. 


Whistler is an amazing destination with an array of adventures to suit everyone’s energy levels. As the weather warms, take a relaxing stroll through the village or explore the beautiful natural scenery on a hike or bike ride. Getting to alpine hikes couldn’t be easier, with the Blackcomb Gondola mere steps from the hotel.

For those feeling adventurous, we recommend you try ziplining, bungee jumping, or even going on a helicopter tour to see the stunning landscapes from above. There’s something for everyone in Whistler, so gather your girlfriends and get ready for an unforgettable time!


When the sun goes down the fun is just beginning in Whistler. For an evening of mountain magic, we highly suggest a visit to Vallea Lumina. Wander the woods together on this enchanting nighttime multimedia walk. The beautiful forest scenes and cozy basecamp are also excellent places to take a group photo! 

Sunday – Funday


Take Sunday rest in your stride and begin your day with breakfast in the comfort of your room. Our in-room dining service offers an array of delicious treats to set you up perfectly for the day. Enjoy Complete Retreat breakfasts, Eggs Benedict, light bites or sweet treats, including pancakes and waffles. 

Once you are well-fuelled, continue your morning with a stroll through Whistler Village. Discover the shops and boutiques decorating the village stroll as you look for that new accessory, the latest piece of outdoor equipment or the perfect gift for someone at home.


After a full morning of shopping, it’s time to unwind and pamper yourself with a visit to the spa. Spend the afternoon relaxing poolside in your own private cabana. With shaded seating for up to 7 people, complimentary fresh fruit, reading material, fruit-infused water and more, it’s the perfect place to connect with your favourite girls.

To take your relaxation to the next level, make an appointment at Vida Spa for a truly indulgent experience. They offer a range of treatments to suit all needs, from full-body massages to rejuvenating facials and beauty therapies. Let yourself sink into a state of pure bliss and leave feeling refreshed and renewed after your visit to Vida Spa.


For your final evening together, go all out with a visit to The Grill Room. It’s the ideal space to host your girls’ dinner as the warm space and exceptional service deliver locally grown regional cuisine paired with the finest BC wines. Let every mouthful be pure decadence as you reminisce on the highlights of your stay at Fairmont Chateau Whistler. 

Monday – Fuel & Farewells


For your final morning, enjoy a well-earned lie-in nestled in the cosiest of sheets. Once you’re packed and out of the room by 11 AM, hand your key to our helpful Guest Services team to complete your checkout experience. Next, simply head downstairs to Portobello for a real breakfast treat. 

This warm and inviting spot at Fairmont Chateau Whistler has everything you need to start your day. Enjoy an offering of a mouth-watering array of breakfast sandwiches, pastries, and freshly brewed coffee, all ready for you to grab and go. But here’s the best part – everything is made with locally sourced and organic ingredients so that you can indulge with zero guilt. It’s the perfect spot to revel in your last few moments together and fuel up for the day ahead. Whether your travel home is near or far, grab a Portobello Picnic to-go to ensure you don’t go hungry.
