5 Reasons Whistler Should Be Your Next Vacation Destination

From mid-air dining to champagne sabering, #ApresSki concierges can arrange just about anything. 

When Apres Ski premieres on November 2, you’re going to want to book the next ticket to Whistler, British Columbia. The show follows the over-the-top life of the staff at Gibbons Whistler, a luxury concierge company that can arrange just about anything you can dream of… plus plenty of wild options you didn’t even think to dream up! Here are some of the most incredible experiences you can have — and Gibbons can provide! — during a trip to the Canadian ski town. 

1.  Dining in Mid-Air

The world record-breaking Peak 2 Peak Gondola spans the distance between Whistler and Blackcomb mountains, which is nearly three miles! The longest lift in the world, it takes 11 minutes to go from one side to the other. Gibbons can arrange a multiple-course fine-dining meal on the lift while it’s in motion — with insane views of the mountains and valley below.

2.  Luxe Pampering

Sure, you can go to a spa at home, but can you do this? The Gibbons team will fly you over ice fields to your own private, back-country hot springs. There, massage therapists will take care of your kinks… while a nude butler satisfies your taste for a different kind of kink. Grab some glacial ice for your cocktail, and you're good to go.

3.  Dog Sledding

The Gibbons concierge crew can partner with Canadian Wilderness Adventures to gather a team of dogs from the Callaghan Valley for a major bucket-list trip. Mush through old-growth forests, dotted with lakes, and waterfalls prettier than your screensaver.

4.  Ziplining Over Mountaintops

Go for a zipline adventure with the one you love: Gibbons partners with Superfly to offer a side-by-side zipline experience located in the pristine mountain wilderness. The tour includes a newly engineered and cutting-edge braking system, and paths and platforms meant to immerse you in the forest’s sublime serenity. The experience includes two of Canada’s longest lines — nearly two-thirds of a mile long and 500 feet high. And the tour reaches speeds of over 60 miles per hour!

5.  Champagne Sabering

Here’s how to be the coolest person at the next cocktail party (or a recipe for an ER visit): learn to saber a bottle of champagne at Bearfoot Bistro. The venue also offers a sub-zero vodka-tasting bar, billed as the coldest vodka tasting room on the planet, which offers 50 types of vodka. Shots shots shots shots shots shots, everybody!
