Apres-ski bliss


Sometimes I’m so spoiled. During my recent ski trip to Whistler, the snow Gods weren’t smiling. Hot temps, melting snow and rain meant little terrain open for spring skiing: even the glaciers were closed due to unstable conditions. So, yes, I skied in the rain, but then I made up for the misery with an apres-ski massage at the Spa at the Four Seasons Whistler (which is actually at the Blackcomb base).

Talk about bliss. It’s a small spa with a few-frills waiting room, but what it lacks in bling it makes up for with service. First I decompressed in the eucalyptus steam room, warming up for  the apres-ski  massage, which combined hot stones, deep massage and a foot mask; a trio that soothed the cricks of travel and skiing.
