Splurge: Après

Spa. Indulge in the $242 British Columbia hot clay treatment at the Four Seasons Whistler’s spa, which starts with a salt rub and ends with a heavenly massage and a cup of Mountain Berry tea.

Sip. Shrug into a seven-layer duck down parka and sip shots of vodka in the blue-hued Belvedere Ice Room (pictured), kept at an arctic -13° F. Housed inside the Bearfoot Bistro, Whistler’s best spot for oysters and Champagne, the former cigar room holds a rotating collection of more than 60 vodkas. Tasting $47/4 vodkas; 4121 Village Green; 604/932-3433.
