After months of planning and prepping for a wedding it's time to put those feet up and relax! A weekend away in Whistler is sure to keep any gaggle of girls grinning from ear to ear. Whistler has it all; incredible boutique shopping along the cobblestone village streets, a plethora of spa facilities for head to toe pampering, fine dinning options like you wouldn’t believe and just the right amount of adventure. Whistler caters to all, whether your group of ladies is after a weekend at the Bike Park and beers on the patio or would prefer relaxing poolside with a glass of wine in hand.
Chances are, if you are headed to a Bachelorette weekend away, you’ve been part of the wedding planning process thus far and truly need a relaxing weekend away. There will be wedding talk and plenty of it, just don’t bring the envelopes that need stuffing or the centerpiece making supplies and you should be able to laugh about the chaos you’ve all endured so far and rejuvenate just in time to finish the last minute tasks that await your return home. Because we all know that you WILL have to do more when you get home, so do your best to take this time “away,” relax a little and make some memories. Be sure to take a stroll on the Lost Lake trails, a hike up to Jofferee Lakes, or a pack a picnic to the park, however you do it, soak up the fresh mountain air by simply being outdoors.
Spending a morning at the spa is the perfect way to start a relaxing weekend. If you haven’t been to the world class Scandinave Spa it is well worth the visit. The outdoor spa sits nestled in a mountainside with incredible valley views. The eucalyptus steam room, wood fired sauna, hot pools and outdoor relaxation areas brings nothing but peace. You can also indulge in a massage at the Scandinave Spa. If you’re looking for more hands on pampering, check out Vida Spa in the Fairmont Chateau Whistler. Vida offers a full menu of esthetic and massage options. They can accommodate large groups and most treatments offer you access to the Fairmont Chateau Whistler’s health club facilities, which include outdoor and indoor pools with bar service.
Your weekend away just happens to be in the most adventurous environment of all. One way to get those wedding jitters out is a bungee jump! A bit too wild? Take out a few canoes or kayaks on Alta Lake and float the legendary River of Golden Dreams. Or get an aerial perceptive by riding the Peak 2 Peak Gondola across 4.4km of valley views, there is nothing like it in the world! Golfing one of Whistlers five immaculate courses is a great way to be social in the outdoors, whether or not your gal pals are avid golfers it is an experience everyone will enjoy.
It’s Bachelorette protocol to have a night out on the town. A nice way to start the evening is with a tasting tour. Wine pairing at one of the largest wine cellars or sample some of the most decadent deserts on the desert tour. A few cocktails on the Earls Patio in the sunshine could be the perfect intro to your night on the town. If you’re group is really “going” for it, book a mini pub-crawl organized by ipartywhistler.com. Whether its hoping from patio to patio or working in your dancing shoes underground, Whistlers nightlife doesn’t disappoint.
