Ski with an Olympian in Whistler

If you were glued to the TV for the Winter Olympics and wishing you were part of the Olympic party, there’s no need to feel like you missed out. Long after the flame’s been extinguished and the athletes have returned to their home countries, the Olympic spirit is burning bright in Whistler – especially at the village’s only Five-Diamond Resort.  From now until the end of the ski season, Four Seasons Resort Whistler is offering its “Ski with an Olympian” package, which combines luxury accommodations with exclusive access to world-class skiers. Not only will you get a three-night stay and a three-day lift ticket at Whistler Blackcomb Mountain – you’ll spend one of those days gliding down the runs with a current or former Olympian or World Cup champion. Ask current Canadian Olympian Manuel Osborne-Paradis how to up your speed, or get former Canadian giant slalom gold medallist Kathy Kreiner to give you tips on your turns. Other confirmed participants include Canadian Cary Mullen and American Erik Schlopy, both of whom competed at three Games. They can’t guarantee that you’ll ski like an Olympian – but they can make sure you ski with one!
