A wide range of spas highlight ski resorts in British Columbia

A local phenomena comes in the form of \’snow ghosts\’ – frigid, spectral creations of snow and ice typically only seen in the Canadian Rockies.
Whistler, Fernie, Kelowna and Vernon are all names well known to winter recreation enthusiasts across the globe for their first-class ski facilities.  Now, skiers and non-skiers alike are embracing these locales for their world-class spa facilities as well.

Canadian ski-spa holidays have become increasingly popular over the years. The resorts have taken notice and have stepped up by creating ever-more-indulgent facilities designed to attract even the most discriminating customers.

The highest snowfall of any resort in the Canadian Rockies can be found at Fernie, which garners up to 37 feet of snow annually. The powder skiing here is legendary, and those who take a beating on the slopes can return to an onsite spa with five treatment rooms, a Japanese soaking tub and cold spring shower offered through Island Lake Catskiing.

Just outside the town of Vernon, the former head of the Swarovski crystal company has created a unique resort called Sparkling Hill. Guests here are greeted by 3.5 million Swarovsky crystals within a stunning architectural masterpiece which includes seven treatment rooms, an indoor pool with underwater music and a starry crystal sky, and an outdoor infinity pool.

In Kelowna, relaxation-seekers gather at the Beyond Wrapture Day Spa located at Chateau Big White where the vinticultue of the region is celebrated in the grape-based vinotherapies.

The largest destination resort in British Columbia is also home to a wide range of day spas. Whistler boasts many hotels with world-class spa facilities, the most popular of which may be the Spa at the Four Seasons with 14 treatment rooms, indoor and outdoor pools and an array of saunas and steam rooms within its massive facilities.
