Whether you’re a seasoned pro or hitting the slopes for the first time, Whistler offers an experience like no other.
But what makes this skiing adventure truly exceptional? The answer lies in the magic of Ski In/Out accommodations. Picture stepping out of your door and onto the slopes, effortlessly blending your alpine escape with the thrill of the mountains.
For a perfect blend of luxury and convenience, look no further than The Aspens and Woodrun Lodge.

And, after a long day of conquering the slopes, unwind in a slope-side pool or outdoor heated hot tub.
There’s a great Aprés scene nearby at RMU Whistler, where you can sip on delicious margaritas on Taco Tuesday, or enjoy the lively atmosphere of their Open Mic Nights every Wednesday. For an elevated Aprés experience, check out The Mallard Lounge inside the Fairmont Chateau. And if it’s the action of the Village you seek, jump aboard the complimentary shuttle service that’ll take you right to the heart of Whistler Village, or walk an extra seven or so minutes further.
