Whistler in the winter time has to be one of the most romantic places to be. With big fluffy snowflakes falling and endless mountain views, the options available to take your loved one on the ultimate date night are endless. Here’s five winter Whistler date night ideas to get you started…
1. Ice skating at Olympic Plaza followed by dinner at one of Whistler’s village restaurants
For the budget conscious Romeo, the free ice skating rink at Whistler’s Olympic Plaza is a fun way to start your evening*. With sparkling lights, music and tons of laughs guaranteed, skating with your date is a great way to break the ice (see what I did there?!). After you’ve shown off your skating skills, head to one of Whistler village’s many pubs or restaurants. There are so many to choose from, find your favourite here.
2. Soak in the atmosphere at the Scandinave spa followed by cocktails at Cure Lounge
A winter wonderland of hot tubs, plunge pools, steam rooms, saunas and relaxation rooms await you and your date at the Scandinave spa. Spend an hour or two experiencing ultimate relaxation and soaking in the peace and tranquility before returning to Nita to enjoy cocktails and casual dinner by the fire at Cure Lounge.
3. Relax with a couples massage and a romantic lakeside dinner
Treat yourself to relaxation for two with a couples massage at The Spa at Nita Lake Lodge. Choose the massage that best suites your needs and feel the tension melt away at The Spa at Nita Lake Lodge. After your treatment, hang out together in the roof top hot tubs or relax in the spa lounge before heading downstairs to enjoy a seasonal three course dinner at Aura Restaurant overlooking Nita Lake.
4. Reach new heights with a Mountain top fondue
This date idea will be one for the memory bank! Ride up Blackcomb mountain by snowmobile or snow cat to enjoy live music and a delicious fondue dinner at the Crystal Hut with Canadian Wilderness Adventures. Make sure you check out the view of Whistler village at night before the ride back down.
5. Zip away together with a Twilight Ziptrek tour
For the more adventurous of couples, zip through the forest on a Twilight Ziptrek tour. This unique experience will see you zip six ziplines guided only by a head lamp and the soft glow of twinkling lights strung along tree-top platforms and suspension bridges. Celebrate your adrenaline rush with a casual dinner at one of Whistler’s many great pubs, with a well-earned drink of course.
