Spend 48 Hours in Whistler for Under $480
Note: This story is old, but we still have Whistler deals that can make your holiday more affordable that you'd think!
Whistler is legendary. It frequently tops all kinds of “best” lists – from Conde Nast’s 2017 “Best Ski Resorts in the World” to Travel + Leisure’s “Best Hotels in Canada.” But with great notoriety comes great adoration – and higher prices. Luckily, Travelzoo has navigated the rich waters and nabbed some great deals to dine, relax and golf your way through B.C.’s beloved resort town.
Here’s our guide to the best way to spend 48 hours in Whistler, all for under $480.
The drive along the Sea-to-Sky highway has been called one of “North America’s best road trips” by Lonely Planet, so after taking in the “breathtakingly picturesque” scenery along the cliffside roadway, we recommend heading straight to your hotel. Our top pick for accommodations is Hilton Whistler Resort & Spa, a newly renovated hotel in the centre of the village.
While it’s rare to find discounted hotel rooms here, Travelzoo members can stay for $159 per night, a savings of 55%.
After exploring the village, head to Taman Sari Royal Heritage Spa, where you can indulge in a Balinese massage complete with a glass of wine and access to the heated pool and Jacuzzi.
This spa package is $139 for Travelzoo members, saving 35%.
Emerge from complete relaxation and head over to Legs Diamond for an intimate dinner.
Located in the quieter Upper Village, the speakeasy-esque restaurant offers a $59 three-course dinner for two that saves 40%.
After a more low-key first day, it’s time to amp it up. Venture further and do your morning stretches by way of a round of golf at Big Sky Golf in Pemberton, a 30-minute drive from Whistler.
Travelzoo golfers get 40% off an 18-hole round, including power cart rental.
After taking in the mountain views from the course, time to head back to Whistler and indulge over lunch at the Four Seasons Resort. We’ve negotiated an exclusive deal at Sidecut -- explore the entire menu with a $100 credit costing only $49.
Here’s a great tip: Valet parking here is free when you visit the restaurant.
Stick around to explore the Village -- Tourism Whistler has plenty of ideas -- or slowly relinquish your time in Whistler and savour the scenic road trip home.
