Top Vancouver getaways: The Four Seasons Resort Whistler
One of the Sidecut's distinguishing features is an 1,800 degree infrared grill used to cook the restaurant's steaks and other meat entrees. The dinner menu offers high quality Canadian prime steaks, fresh local seafood and a variety of unique regional specialities such as BC Fallow Venison Loin and Bone-in Braised Bison Short Ribs.
All entrees are served with a choice of six rubs and presented with a plate of six delicious sauces. The long list of side dishes ranges from steakhouse favourites such as mac 'n cheese and poached egg-grilled asparagus to seasonal fresh vegetables, picked from the resort's 2,700 square-foot rooftop garden.
The Spa at the Four Seasons Resort Whistler
The spa at the Four Seasons Resort Whistler is sublime.
After a long day in the out-of-doors, there's nothing like kicking back in a eucalyptus-scented steam room while anticipating the dip in the hot tub that comes next, followed by a sweet swim in the steamy outdoor pool. If you're lucky enough to be indulging in a massage, all the better.
Poolside, your kids will be enjoying the "après-ski" complimentary hot chocolate in the hot tub.
The Spa's design, combining contemporary unstained maple wood with a rustic, smooth, white stone creates the perfect relaxing oasis for guests.
All the treatments at the Spa feature natural and high-quality products. Seaweed, fresh fruits, wild flowers, pure essential oils and clay harvested from BC's glacial lakes are just a few of the ingredients used. The Spa's signature treatments include:
