Where to Shop Whistler

Lakeside Serenity

Relax at The Spa at Nita Lake Lodge.

Relax at The Spa at Nita Lake Lodge.

Looking for your bliss? At The Spa at Nita Lake Lodge, you’ll find it all wrapped up in a terry-towel robe. The top-to-toe treatments use sustainably sourced oils and scrubs, while the rooftop hot tub provides the perfect post-pampering soak. For an indulgence that’s equal parts “oommm” and “aahhh,” try the Inner Connection package, complete with the signature kundalini massage, shirodhara (warm oil poured over the third eye), body scrub and facial. Paradise, found.

Canadian, Eh

Keep your head warm with a cozy toque from Roots

Keep your head warm with a cozy toque from Roots

If you know how to wear a toque, have a drawer stuffed full of Canadian Tire money, and own at least one piece of clothing emblazoned with a maple leaf, chances are you’re from the True North Strong and Free. If you’re from elsewhere, we’ll let you in on a secret: Roots clothing is the unofficial uniform north of the 49th parallel. The company started in 1973 in Ontario making leather shoes but soon branched out into leather jackets and bags, sportswear, clothing and accessories. Pull on a cozy toque from Roots and you just might be mistaken for a true Canuck.

 

Keep Cozy with Icebreaker

By JILL VON SPRECKEN

Fend off the elements with gear from Icebreaker

Fend off the elements with gear from Icebreaker

The great outdoors are pretty great. But let’s face it: sometimes they’re cold and wet, too. Keep the elements at bay with gear from Icebreaker. The outdoor outfitter creates activewear from superfine merino wool, a fabric that’s warm, breathable and odour-resistant. Named the official base layer—and sock provider—of Whistler Blackcomb, Icebreaker crafts their clothes from the fibres of merino sheep, New Zealand’s true alpine extremists. Get outfitted from head to toe at Can-Ski (page 34) or Escape Route (page 34).
