Top 5 Reasons Why Hilton Whistler Is Our Favorite Family Ski Resort
Our family of 4 has been skiing for a combined total of 60 years, in the United States, Canada, Switzerland and France. We all agree that Hilton Whistler Resort & Spa is the best family ski resort we have ever visited. Here are the top 5 reasons we fell in love with this property:
Did you know Whistler has consistently offered the most reliable snow conditions over the last 10 years? It snowed at least a little bit every single day of our vacation, so we had a constant supply of fresh powder.
2. SNOWBALL FIGHTS IN THE POOL
Our boys’ hands-down favorite was the heated outdoor pool and hot tub. There is nothing as exciting as a snowball fight in the pool. And there is nothing as satisfying as watching your children play happily while you wind down in the adjoining hot tub!
3. EASY HANDLING OF SKIS AND GEAR
Summit Sport, located inside Hilton Whistler, is a full service shop offering free ski storage, ski rentals, and an amazing selection of equipment. The knowledgeable staff helped my husband pick out some new fatty powder skis, and they were able to tune up our skis overnight. We also loved that you can go absolutely anywhere in the hotel in your ski boots, and that our rooms had a convenient place to store wet gear and clothing.
4. WOOD BURNING FIREPLACE
We were shocked and delighted to find that in our hotel room, at the base of our bed, was a beautiful wood-burning fireplace! We also enjoyed the lovely views from our balcony. They blended well with our large, new kitchen and bath. We really appreciated the combination of luxury hotel amenities and classic ski lodge traditions.
5. EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE
The team of concierges began working with us weeks before we arrived in Whistler. Because we were visiting during the very busy Christmas week, I sought their help in choosing everything from our family’s Christmas dinner to date night destinations with my husband. They also arranged a wonderful babysitter through a local professional childcare service. And everything was confirmed via email. Truly amazing ski vacations involve a bit of thoughtful planning; we felt like we were in terrific hands at Hilton Whistler.
