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.
