Whistler Day Spa

Whistler Traveller Magazine - - TASTE OF WHISTLER -

A new face for win­ter … not ev­ery­one is look­ing for an all-day spa ex­pe­ri­ence. Some seek a week­long one at the Whistler Day Spa — of­ten re­sort guests who are wrestling with their skin care rou­tine, which wasn’t de­signed for the snow, sleet and wind of moun­tain liv­ing. “Your skin will change with the weather,” says Spa Owner Stacey Gaff. “Es­pe­cially va­ca­tion­ers — their skin can dry out and be­come ex­tremely sen­si­tive. The mois­tur­izer some­one might use in the city where it rains isn’t go­ing to do its job up here.” Spa es­theti­cians cre­ate per­sonal Der­ma­log­ica “sur­vival” kits for guests, pro­vid­ing them with a few weeks’ worth of skin­care prod­ucts. Thus, guests can take the spa back to their ho­tel to help win­ter­ize their skin for their time in Whistler. The kit is best paired with a fa­cial, voted by lo­cals as their favourite rou­tine. It in­cludes ex­trac­tions and mas­sage. So while a Whistler Day Spa treat­ment in­cludes the use of out­door pool fa­cil­i­ties at the Pan Pa­cific Whistler Vil­lage, some guests might pass on the skin-dry­ing sauna and hot tub and in­stead choose the more low-key robe loung­ing with moun­tain views as a way to un­wind. How­ever you choose to spa, a sin­gle treat­ment serves as a door­way into a multi-sen­sory ex­pe­ri­ence of vary­ing jets, wa­ter­falls and na­ture views that all lead to the in­evitable: Zen.
