The Sundial's Sales & Marketing Coordinator shares a bit about why the Christmas season is one of her favourite times of the year in Whistler complete with suggestions on what not to miss!!!
This is my 10th Whistler Christmas and there is no better place to be during the festive season! Here is why I recommend Whistler for Christmas:
The Whistler Village and all Whistler accommodations are decked out with festive décor. The Christmas lights on all the trees line the village stroll and boulevards as you enter Whistler Village. At the Sundial Boutique Hotel we have decorated the lobby with Christmas Wreaths, lights and festive cheer. Immediately you are in a Winter Wonderland where the holiday fun is about to begin!
This special time of year is full of endless adventure. Along with world class skiing at this time of year; the holiday season brings the Whistler Holiday Experience. The Whistler Conference Centre is transformed into an activity centre for the whole family to enjoy! With Santa visits, mini golf, bouncy castles, floor hockey, arts & crafts, movie time and more, this is the location to be during the holidays!
Sunday nights keep everyone entertained with the Whistler Fire & Ice show held at the base of Whistler Mountain! Local professional skiers show off big air jumps and perform tricks as they jump through rings of fire! The event ends with a stunning fireworks display!
New Years Eve in Whistler is a family friendly event where the village is transformed into an entertainment mecca with craft stations around every corner, street entertainers, ice skating, and indoor activities at the Whistler Conference Centre. The night ends with a bang; an amazing fireworks display to ring in the New Year!
With all these activities don’t forget to get in some R&R. Take in the views and cozy up by the fire, leave the kids with a babysitter and enjoy the relaxing Scandinave Spa and dinner out. I recommend a fondue for two or the Bearfoot Bistro’s Champagne & Oysters to start off one of their decadent dinners. Whatever you desire for the holidays it’s here in Whistler during this magical time of year.
