How To Warm Your Winter At The Scandinave Spa Whistler

When the flakes start to fly our little town comes alive with wintery fun. From days exploring our seemingly endless ski terrain to nights wandering around our winter wonderland village, Whistler is the ultimate place to embrace the season. If you’re looking for a place to melt away the winter blues, or rest and recover after a big day the slopes, Scandinave Spa is the place to be.

Restorative Après

Even if you ski regularly, a big day on the slopes can leave your legs feeling like jelly. When most people think of après it usually involves drinks at a slopeside bar. Why not try something new, and do your body a favour by swapping out drinks at a bar for an afternoon/evening at the spa? A couple of hours of restorative hydrotherapy will not only feel amazing, but it will also help you to rest and recover for the next day on the slopes.

For even more healing we recommend a massage with one of our massage therapists. They’re specialists at treating ski weary bodies.

Bask in a Winter Wonderland

Love the look of winter, but hate being cold? You can embrace the season through in comfort at our cozy winter wonderland. Imagine watching snowflakes fall around you from the comfort of a piping hot pool, fireside, or through the glass of a heated solarium. It’s is an experience that will warm your body and soul.


A Haven For Non-Skiers

Whether it’s you, or someone your visiting with, it’s not unusual for there to be at least one person in the group who isn’t here to ski. There’s no need to drag the non-skier up the hill if they aren’t interested in it. You can spend the day apart with them exploring our spa, and you the ski slopes. You can even meet up for some spa time together when you are done skiing for the day.

If your non-skier friends are looking for other off-hill activities, our spa is located beside Lost Lake, home to snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. They can spend a bit of time exploring the trails before coming to the spa.

Warm-Up

Even the most winter hardened Canadians can catch a chill on a midwinter’s day. For those days that have you feeling cold to your core, the best cure is a few rounds of hydrotherapy. It might sound crazy, but even the cold plunge helps you warm up by causing your body to divert the freshly heated blood to your core. A few rounds of soaking, plunging and relaxing fireside will have you feeling thawed out.


Perform Your Best

From charging through trees and moguls to pushing your limits dropping cliffs and sending booters, skiing and snowboarding can be an extreme mental and physical challenge. A common sentiment we hear from our current and past ambassadors is that they use the Scandinave Spa as a place to heal both body and mind.

The hot pools help to melt away muscle and joint pain, while the solariums are the ideal environment to let your mind wander to either work out or just forget your day to day problems for a bit.
