WITH FRESH SNOW COMES FRESH EXPERIENCES AT FOUR SEASONS RESORT AND RESIDENCES WHISTLER
Four Seasons Resort and Residence Whistler has received a whole lot of snow, but snow isn’t the only fresh thing to reach the Resort. Guests are invited to enjoy an array of new experiences that reflect the scenic mountain region of Whistler. From creative In-Room Dining menus to be enjoyed with alpine vistas to mountain-inspired treatments at The Spa and a wealth of après options from the team at SIDECUT Modern Steak + Bar, there are new activities to be found in every corner.
A Mountain of In-Room Dining Options
While the snow falls outside the window, guests can enjoy a number of premium dining experiences in front of the fire in the privacy of their own room or residence. From a collaborative menu inspired by memories of home to a magically appearing family-style meal, Four Seasons Resort Whistler is taking in-room dining to new heights.
A Collaborative Menu from the Four Seasons Culinary Team
Whistler lures guests and employees alike from far and wide, inspiring everyone with its vast beauty and sheer peaks. Nevertheless, for those that now call this dramatic region home, there are always reminiscent flavours from their homeland. Inspired by these memories, the creative kitchen team has launched a collaborative in-room dining menu, designed to transport tastes from all over world to the mountains. Guests can savour dishes such as Sajish’s Indian butter chicken, Isabelle’s warm maple blueberry crumble or Luis’s huevos rancheros while surrounded by the Coast Mountain’s stunning alpine scenery.
Chef de Partie Luis Alejandro Amaro Jimenez speaks of the flavours he remembers fondly: “More than making this dish, I like eating it. On a cold day, it is the sunshine to your morning, the ultimate comfort. Combining BC and Mexican produce means we can produce the best local taste with traditional flavour.”
The in-room dining menu is made to be enjoyed overlooking snow covered pines from the room’s bespoke window dining table with each design element of rooms and suites making the most of the Resort’s remarkable alpine setting.
Exclusive to Four Seasons Whistler Private Retreats, this family-style meal is made to appear, as if by magic, following a day’s activities on the mountain. Guests can select from a vegetarian chilli with rainbow tortilla chips, braised beef shortrib stew or Indian butter chicken with tomato. Accompanied by an array of sides and finished with lavish desserts such as the s’mores-inspired chocolate and marshmallow layered pot, this medley will refuel even the most adventurous guests. Ordered conveniently through the Four Seasons App, it truly makes relaxing post mountain effortless.
