Westin Resort & Spa, Whistler
Known as the host for downhill events at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, the Westin Resort and Spa is conveniently located at the base of the Whistler Mountain gondola. Its access to the mountain is unparalleled, and athletic equipment can be rented for as little as $5. For parents, the resort offers kid friendly summer and winter interactive programs as well as special meals created by doctors, dentists, dieticians and chefs. Dog owners will appreciate that dogs are welcome for free and hosted in comfortable beds. Every October, the resort hosts Woof Weekend, where photographic sessions, food, and adventures are designed just for dogs and their owners.
