Whistler Village was the global stage for many of the winter sport competitions during the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. As the world watched, Canada captured many of its gold medals on the hills of Whistler Blackcomb. Today, teams from countries all over the world visit year-round to train and compete on these world-class venues for future competitions including the Olympic and World Cup circuits.
Make like an elite athlete and spend the day “Skiing with an Olympian.” Groups of up to four people get a chance to ski and après with Whistler Olympian – Robbie Dixon. Follow in Dixon’s tracks, get tips on technique and hear epic stories of his time to shine for Canada in 2010. As part of Whistler Blackcomb’s Ski or Ride with an Olympian program, Four Seasons Resort Whistler is thrilled to have a dedicated relationship with Dixon exclusively for guests.
Whistler has always held a special place in Robbie Dixon’s heart. As a local, Dixon takes a great sense of pride in guiding his guests around his backyard where he grew up. He loves seeing the satisfaction and pure enjoyment of guests exploring the mountains and skiable terrain. “Whether it’s hot laps on 7th Heaven under bluebird skies or chasing the pow through the trees and in the high alpine, Whistler is my happy place and there’s nowhere else I’d rather be.”
Chef Greg Edkins is a classically-trained Vancouver based chef. He has honed his craft with more than 20 years experience cooking in some of the best restaurants in Vancouver, Toronto and the Bahamas, including Le Crocodile, Bearfoot Bistro and Pastis. Edkins prepares a private, interactive and delicious three-course menu for up to six guests in the privacy you’re your personal Residence. This is a hands-on kitchen education at its best; guest will learn useful skills, like hand-making ravioli from scratch and how best to put specific pans, knives and tools to work. Menu options include dishes like mushroom ravioli, Parmesan soufflé, black cod, beef tenderloin, pana cotta and dark chocolate cremeux. “The Residences’ luxurious kitchens are fantastic for preparing meals and wining and dining family and friends. I’m thrilled to bring my skills to the table and look forward to having a great time together.”
