Is there anything better than a day of skiing? Well, yes actually, if that day includes hitting the slopes with an Olympic athlete along with overnight accommodations at Canada’s No. 1 rated hotel.

The only AAA Five-Diamond hotel or resort in all of Canada, Four Seasons Resort and Residences Whistler is bringing the Olympic experience within reach for post-Games visitors with an exclusive offering thrill-seekers won’t want to miss.

Named “Ski With an Olympian,” the package provides access to some of the best winter athletes in the world, from Olympian, World Cup champion and world record holder Cary Mullen to three-time Olympian Erik Schlopy.

The three-night experience starts at arrival, when guests check into the Resort and are ensconced in one of Whistler’s most spacious and elegant rooms.

The next day, guests start their once-in-a-lifetime experience with a quick meet-and-greet with their chosen Olympian. After discussing the goals for the day—whether it’s improving their skiing technique with expert tips, hearing firsthand stories of Olympic glory or simply securing bragging rights for years to come—they’ll head out for an unforgettable day on Whistler Blackcomb.

Throughout, guests will get a feel for the VIP treatment world-class athletes often enjoy when they’re able to skip ahead to the front of the lift line and take an inside-the-fence tour of the 2010 Alpine ski race courses guided by the Olympian. A gourmet lunch for two on the top of Whistler or Blackcomb mountain is also included and offers more opportunities to learn firsthand about the thrill of being in the Winter Games.

At the end of the ski day, guests leave with a special souvenir package, but even then their experience is not over. Back at the Resort, their next stop is the Spa, where they’ll be able to soothe tired and aching muscles with an On the Podium Après Alpine Treatment. The perfect blend of relaxation therapy and a sports massage, the 110-minute treatment is included in the package price so guests will be able to indulge without guilt.

Offered in partnership with Best of Both Golf & Ski, a luxury outfitter specialising in British Columbia travel experiences, Ski With an Olympian is available as a package as well as an add-on activity through the Concierge.

For more information or to reserve this package, call Four Seasons Resort and Residences Whistler’s reservations department at 1 888/935-2460 or visit the Hotel’s web site.
