Explore a Collection of Curated ‘Taste of Place’ Experiences with Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts
This high-flying culinary experience features glacial peak aperitifs and panoramic mountain views. Guests are invited to embark on an unforgettable adventure that begins with a short and scenic drive from the resort to Whistler’s heliport. A private helicopter awaits to whisk guests to a remote ice cap as they sip on a glass of sparkling Moët Ice Impérial. To ensure a completely cosy Canadian experience guests will be provided with Canada Goose black label parkas and sleek, waterproof Sorel boots for guests to keep, ensuring maximum comfort and warmth for this excursion and years to come.
The helicopter delivers guests to a nearby glacial peak where they embark on an ice cave exploration, discovering a 12,000-year old labyrinth of chambers of aqua blue magnificence. While engaging in this spectacular sightseeing, participants are required to gather a crucial ingredient for the upcoming cocktail session – pure glacier ice. The resort’s Mixologist will shake the ice into one of their signature specialties amid the majestic beauty of Whistler’s mountain peaks.
Once cocktail hour is complete, guests will board the helicopter and take in the alpine scenery before returning to a luxurious Private Residence featuring panoramic views. Executive Chef Eren Guryel will prepare a memorable dinner boasting locally sourced ingredients and premium meat cuts paired with custom cocktails that complement each dish.
The High-Altitude Dining experience package is priced at $12,500 CAD for four people and is available for purchase by calling the hotel. Guests will need to provide the Resort with shoe and jacket size at time of booking. Accommodations priced separately. Available now through October 2017.
