• Athletes doing many different sports

Athlete In Residence

Right from its humble beginnings, sparked by a dream of hosting the Olympic Games, the Resort Municipality of Whistler has been an incubator for talent. The world’s best are drawn here to compete at the highest levels, while the next generation is developed from the most fundamental grassroots levels. With a long history of community support at all levels Fairmont Chateau Whistler has created an Athlete in Residence program to support and celebrate accomplished local athletes.

Each Athlete in Residence session is as unique as the athlete themselves. Fairmont Chateau Whistler will work with them to tailor the program to best help support their training and create meaningful moments of connection with our guests.
