Spa Profile: The Spa at Four Seasons Resort Whistler
Nestled at the base of Whistler Backcomb ski resort, the iconic Four Seasons Resort Whistler is surrounded by stunning evergreen forests. The resort’s recent 2019 renovation was inspired by its beautiful mountain setting, blending modern Mid Century furnishings with rustic yet refined alpine style. Rooms feature balconies with gorgeous forest-lined mountain views and modern granite fireplaces—perfect for getting cozy.
The Spa at Four Seasons Resort Whistler offers guests the opportunity to disconnect and unwind after a day outdoors or on the slopes with treatments that feature Canadian-inspired ingredients. We caught up with Director of Spa Caitlin Hubbard to learn more about this mountain sanctuary of relaxation.
Why You’ll Love It: Our guests love that our treatments reflect the destination. Most of our treatments are designed to address the unique effect that traveling to Whistler has on a person. Many of our guests are enjoying skiing, mountain biking, hiking or snowshoeing and are looking for lots of relief after all of the physical activities they partake in. Our team of skilled therapists specializes in injury prevention and recovery, sports treatments, and deep relaxation to ensure all guests can enjoy the varied activities that Whistler has to offer. No one wants to be sidelined by sore muscles when on vacation!
Key Features: The men's and women's spa areas each feature a eucalyptus-infused steam room along with an Alpine shower, making both hot and cold therapies available. Additionally, the cedar wood barrel sauna, three outdoor hot tubs, and our year-round outdoor pool are a hit among the families that visit the resort and spa. Finally, we feature two co-ed lounges that provide different relaxation experiences both before and after services in the Spa.
Insider’s Tip: Our seasonal menu items always feature products that our very talented lead therapists dream up, develop, and make in-house. We have recently begun growing some of the fresh botanicals in the spa that are eventually added to our wraps, scrubs, or massage oils. As this changes with each season, this can be an amazing way to test the incredible treatments that our lead therapists came up with.
Spa Snacks: We serve Mountain Berry and Alpine Mint teas in our post-relaxation room. Additionally, we will soon launch snacks by Naked Snacks, a Vancouver-based nut and snack mix company.
Splurge Treatment: The Four Seasons Signature Treatment (100 minutes, $325) is a one-stop shop for the complete spa experience. It begins with a Maple Syrup and Raw Sugar Body Scrub, followed by a Glacial Clay and Spirulina Wrap. During the wrap, the therapist provides a relaxing and deeply hydrating hair and scalp massage using a restorative hair mask. Following a shower, the therapist then uses an uplifting aromatherapy blend during a full-body massage to both hydrate the skin and relax the body. Following this service, most guests emerge looking quite dazed—in the best possible way.
Insider’s Favorite: My personal favorite treatment is the Sea to Sky Massage. This 80-minute massage is inspired by the awe-inducing drive from Vancouver to Whistler along the Sea to Sky Highway. The treatment begins with a Seaweed Salt Exfoliation on the back to remind the guest of the ocean views at the start of the drive. The therapist then uses a rhythmic massage technique to mimic the curving road that connects the cities as they complete a full-body treatment. Finally, to remind them of the mountains, heated basalt stones are selectively used to create the same state of bliss that you experience when arriving in Whistler. To really get this right, it's best to include an Alpine Foot Add-On to make the treatment 100 minutes in total so that you can really melt into a puddle by the end.!
Bonus: We have complimentary daily fitness classes ranging from Pilates and yoga to high-intensity spin along with personal training options available. Additionally, we have a large selection of digital On-Demand classes that a guest can choose to take at any point during their stay.
Featured Brands: While we make many of our products in house, we also feature products from Babor, Beauty Through Balance, emerginC Organics, Intraceuticals, and SpaRitual.
