By contrast, in the spring and summer, guests at the Fairmont Chateau can lounge on the rooftop garden, surrounded by the delicious aroma of fresh herbs and other edible plants. As well, you can visit the wooden bee house if you’re not bee-shy or allergic.
Needless to say, your stay will never be dull. Go for a swim at the pool, enjoy an award-winning food program, and take advantage of close access to all the outdoor and hiking amenities in Whistler.
