For sporting types who enjoy a day on the links just as much as their time on the slopes, Fairmont Chateau Whistler is an ideal choice. Ski-in, ski-out access and an on-site golf course make it possible to savor the best of both worlds. Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., the eighteen-hole, par-72 course is carved out of the slopes of the Coast Mountain range. Dramatic elevation changes and spectacular views make it a top destination course for both experts and beginners — the latter need not worry about being in over their heads, since they can always pick up tips at the David Leadbetter Golf Academy. For post-golf relaxation, players can unwind with a massage at Vida Spa or classic cocktail in The Mallard Lounge.
