The Fairmont Chateau Whistler is one of the largest and most prestigious hotels in Whistler. Enjoy ski-in and ski-out access and legendary service in one of Whistler's most beautiful hotels. 

Iconic Status

The Fairmont name is renowned for its world class service and iconic buildings. Set into Blackcomb Mountain with a stunning backdrop of trees and snow, the Fairmont Chateau Whistler is no different. Inside the hotel you will find an impressive chateau-style grand lobby with high ceilings and lavish furnishings.

You will be based next to the lifts at the foot of the Blackcomb Mountain with great ski-in and ski-out access. It’s also not far from the village centre either, an easy five minute walk or complimentary shuttle away.

Drinks & Dining

You’ll find several bars and restaurants at the Fairmont where you can enjoy everything from a casual drink to fine dining. The Grill Rooms serves up some of the best steaks and seafood in British Columbia and the Mallard Terrace bar is not to be missed for a social après drink by the fire pits. 


If you're looking for some peace and quiet, the hotel's health club gives you access to an 60ft. heated lap pool with underwater music, indoor/outdoor heated leisure pool, multiple whirlpools, hot tubs, saunas, steam rooms and firepit. We recommend treating yourself to at least one of the renowned treatments and massages at the ‘Vida Spa’, bookable locally.

Rated again and again as North America’s best ski resort, Whistler has it all. Over 200 trails spread between two peaks (Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains) and linked by the famous Peak2Peak gondola, the resort has become the pride and joy of Canada’s Pacific North West. The resort boasts a mix of hotels and apartments along pedestrian-friendly streets, the whole place is as beautiful as it is practical.

The skiing and snowboarding are world class, and will suit all needs. There are plenty of easy blue and green slopes for those finding their feet, and even more options for those at a more intermediate level including the bowls and the extremely Canadian off-piste tours for those who fancy something a little more daring.

If you’re more suited for the après-ski, you can kick back in the mountain bars. Whistler offers a superb array of nightlife including top of the range restaurants and numerous bars with down to earth, welcoming après from the moment the lifts close until dinner time. Into the night, Whistler is host to a fantastic variety of clubs and bars for those who fancy a spot of dancing. 

Why not make the most of your time in Canada and add on a flexible Vancouver city break at the start or end of your Whistler holiday?

We are excited to be working with Black Tie Ski Rental. This coming season you will have the option to pick up your equipment in store or they will come to your hotel and do a fitting in the comfort of your room. Booking early is highly recommended. The team at Black Tie have expert knowledge and will contact you before you travel to take some important measurements to ensure you get the equipment you need. We will therefore require your contact details to pass on to them closer to your holiday.

It’s often recommended that you rent your skis and boards: you will save money on transporting your equipment overseas, you get to sample the latest technology, and if you consider yourself an occasional skier, it’s a chance to find out what your slope style is before committing to a pair of skis/board.

Blue and red skis & boots come with standard boots, a 4-buckle boot with designed to fit and be comfortable for most people. Black skis & boots come with premium boots which means you have a wider selection of brands and models, including stiffer boots for more advance skiers, or wider or narrower fitting boots for wide/ narrow feet or calves. If you have booked standard boots, you can upgrade locally at a charge of $10 per day.
