No matter the season, Whistler Blackcomb delivers the goods. And while North America's largest ski resort offers mountains of outdoor adventure, it's also home to one of British Columbia's most exciting indoor adventures—Araxi, frequently named Whistler Village's best restaurant.

With this week's Escape from Whistler Premier, check in to the The Blackcomb Lodge in the thick of Whistler Village. You'll get a one-night stay for two, Sundays through Thursdays, in a Hotel Room ($179) or a Deluxe Studio ($199), plus a five-course prix fixe meal for two at Araxi.

Or, opt for a one-night stay for two, Fridays and Saturdays, in a Hotel Room ($239) or Deluxe Studio ($259), and get a three-course prix fixe meal for two at Araxi.

After check-in—in either a Hotel Room, appointed with a king-size bed or two twins; or a Deluxe Studio, outfitted with one king or two twin beds, a fold-out sofa, and a kitchen—take a dip in the Jacuzzi or in Whistler's only indoor swimming pool, both on-site at the Lodge. Both options offer a private bathroom, flat-screen TV, and complimentary Wi-Fi.

Then, head to Blackcomb Mountain. It boasts 3,414 acres of skiable terrain and 5,280 feet of vertical (the longest drop in North America), which makes for excellent late-season skiing and boarding for beginners and experts alike.

In June, take advantage of the mountain's acreage with a little alpine hiking, or amp up the adrenaline with a trip to the Whistler Mountain Bike Park, where you can try your handlebars at more than 50 downhill trails.

Next: dinner at Araxi, which Gordon Ramsay called "the best restaurant in Canada" in 2008. Chef James Walt draws on British Columbia's bounty of sustainably raised meats and produce, plus Whistler's proximity to the Pacific, to assemble an ultra-fresh, seasonal palette of creative dishes. After your prix fixe meal, head to the bar and take in the night over a single malt Scotch.

No matter the season, adventure runs high and food comes fresh in this buzzing resort town in the Coast Mountains. And with this week's Escape to Araxi and The Blackcomb Lodge, you'll get the seasonal best of both.

  • "The kitchen makes the most of local ingredients such as house-smoked trout, Pemberton cheese and lamb, and Howe Sound oysters. Chef James Walt has a deft hand, producing dishes that are inventive yet tradition-based and full of flavor..."
