Nestled right within the fairytale Whistler village, and on the doorstep of lifts to both Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, the ski-in/ski-out Sundial Boutique Hotel is ideal for skiers and snowboarders looking to stay in the heart of the action. If it’s a special occasion, book one of the eight suites with a private hot tub and watch the stars come out over the Whistler-Blackcomb peaks from the comfort of your balcony.
After an invigorating day whizzing down the mountain, chat with friends about the trails while soaking in the rooftop hot tub. As the evening draws in, step onto the heated slate floor of your bathroom to freshen up with Aveda toiletries ahead of a deep night’s sleep on your luxury Stearns & Foster mattress.
At dinner time, you can take a three-minute stroll in the fresh air to the locally-owned Whistler Grocery Store and grab some wild-caught salmon for a delicious supper made in your fully equipped ensuite kitchen. If you prefer eating out, Whistler’s known for its superb sushi. Head down to Sundial’s second floor for sushi and a sake margarita at Sushi Village.
Vancouver-based company Halfmoon Yoga has mats for you to stretch out on before hitting one of Whistler’s 200 or so marked runs again, or you can join a yoga class offered three times a week at the hotel by Rich Life Whistler. There’s also a ski valet service for keeping your skis in prime condition.
