Morning: Breakfast at The Wildflower & Train Wreck Hike
Afternoon: Biking/ Golfing & Clubhouse Après
Evening: Massage & Mallard Lounge
Nourish yourself for a day on the slopes with the Wildflower’s breakfast, a feast of delicious breakfast options including smoothie bowls, cold-press juices, coffee, waffles, and pancakes. Enjoy a casual hike along the glacier-fed Cheakamus River to the remains of a train derailment from the 1950’s. At the wreck there are 5 train cars scattered along the forest floor with massive Coastal evergreen trees that have grown around them. Some local artists have decorated the cars with amazing graffiti work. Great for a family hike. Moderate fitness level required. Please wear appropriate foot wear. We recommend you bring water with you.

With longer days, you can tire your legs with a dual sport day. Rent an e-biking and head to the Valley Trail. The trail takes you on a scenic journey through the heart of the town and along the most stunning lakes, with plenty of opportunities to stop and take in beautiful views along the way. With e-bikes, you can cover more ground, and enjoy a longer ride without getting too tired. One highlight of the route is Creekside Village, where you can find great food and drinks to refuel. And if you are up for more adventure, Function Junction offers breweries and bakeries for you to explore. As you make your way around Alta Lake, be sure to check out Rainbow Park, which was one of Whistler’s first tourism initiatives.
If you feel you’ve worked you lower body to the max, take a swing at British Columbia’s number 1 rated golf destination. Designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club is the perfect spot to enjoy an unparalleled 18-hole mountain golf experience. With a fun and challenging course, there’s something for every level.
When you’re finished on the green, head to The Clubhouse. There are picturesque views of the course to enjoy refreshments or a casual lunch on the sunny patio, perfect for golf après.

After a day of playing hard, take a few laps in our 60-foot outdoor heated pool that will help release any tension built up on the slopes or go for a soak in the hotel’s four whirlpools (one indoors and three outdoors). May we suggest combining it with an après massage at Vida Spa. Located in the hotel, this luxurious spa offers a range of treatments to rejuvenate and refresh your body and mind and why not top it off with a sip of your favourite cocktail and some live music at the Mallard Lounge.
