A day at Scandinave provides the ultimate spa experience.
This unique spa is located just minutes away from the resort. One treatment starts with a warm up in a Jacuzzi, dry or steam sauna, then cold plunge immediately into the river (which is often frozen). Then, rest by the fireplace until you are ready to do it again. The cycle usually lasts about 45 minutes, and you can repeat as often as you like. Skeptical? You'll feel extraordinarily relaxed after the process. Complete the experience and get a Swedish massage, lounge in the Finnish dry-air sauna or Norwegian steam room, soak in heated Jacuzzis, or take a swim in the river.
This spa has great packages for skiers that include massage, steam rooms, and take home supplies to make your experience last.
Located at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler, this spa takes catering to skiers very seriously. They offer a service menu based on Ayurveda, an ancient Indian science that consists of herbal therapies, massage, and yoga for healing purposes. Try the Ayurvedic Massage, where you’ll get special treatment for your head, neck and scalp, or a skier’s package that consists of a private steam room, Jacuzzi soak, and a 90-minute Sports Deep Tissue Combination Massage. They also offer a complimentary take-home Epson salt soak to ease further muscle pain after a long day on the slopes.
