We get an extra day this month (this year) so we should really make the most of it, and what better way than in a spectacular location with culture, relaxation, good food and of course, a party. Here’s how you can celebrate Leap Day at the Four Seasons Whistler:
Leap Day at Four Seasons Whistler
Sunrise Yoga at the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre
On Leap Day, take time to reconnect surrounded by local First Nation art and history with an exclusive Four Seasons Resort Whistler sunrise yoga class held at Whistler’s Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre. I first visited in 2009 when this landmark first opened ahead of the 2020 Winter Olympics, and it’s conveniently located adjacent to the Resort.
The SLCC celebrates the joint history of Squamish and Lil’wat First Nations, past and present, by showcasing their histories, creative works and cultures in an interactive format. Guests can prepare for the coming day while enjoying the stunning views of the northerly mountain ranges and Lost Lake Woods.
Subtle Thyme Stories at SIDECUT Bar, Four Seasons Resort Whistler
Introducing 1908, a cocktail taking us back to a leap year that saw the first-ever ball-drop in Times Square. SIDECUT Bar’s 1908 combines the unique flavour of 1908 Empress gin with a house-made syrup of honey, vanilla and the subtle reference of thyme. Balance is added with a touch of citrus, changing the hue to a delicate purple.
Extra Time at The Spa
Enjoy a luxurious journey up the Sea to Sky with a Signature Treatment from The Spa at Four Seasons Resort Whistler. The experience begins with a Canadian maple syrup and brown sugar scrub followed by a warm clay and algae nourishing body wrap. While wrapped, hair and scalp are treated to a Moroccanoil massage and conditioning treatment. The journey is completed with a deep moisturising, full-body massage using organic detoxifying body butter. Signature Treatments booked on Leap Day will receive a complimentary 10 minutes of additional massage.
Celebratory Sunset Party at the Vintage Patio Camper
Seize the final hours of Leap Day while watching the winter sun fall behind a snow covered peak while dancing to smooth tunes by local Whistler legend, DJ Foxy Moron at the ever-Instagrammable Vintage Patio Camper. Of which, I did indeed share a photo of on Instagram when I visited during summer BBQ season. Snack on time-themed nibbles, Canadiana s’mores and Tipsy Snowman signature hot chocolates.
Mountain of memories this Leap Day. All #FSTakeYourTime activities are exclusive to guests staying at the Four Seasons Resort and Residences Whistler on February 29, 2020. Follow Four Seasons Whistler on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for the latest news and offers.
