The Best Hot Tubs in Whistler | Updated 2022
Here in Whistler, we’re pretty good at getting outside, having adventures, and earning our apres-beers.
What else are we good at? Relaxing.
With most of the hotels and AirBnb’s in Whistler having their private hot tubs, having a little hot soak has to be the best way to wind down after a long ski day.
Whether you’re looking for a Whistler hotel with a private hot tub, Whistler Airbnb with a private hot tub, or just any Whistler hot tub to enjoy, we’ve got you covered.
Whistler Hot Tub Culture and Apres Ski
Whistler is known for its world-class skiing, snowboarding, and mountain biking. Besides the mountain, what do these three sports have in common? An insane aprés culture.
By dictionary definition, aprés means after. By Whistler definition, apres means to party and get wild after a day full of adrenaline.
Typically, Whistler locals will start their apres at one of the many bars and patios around the village. There are always daily specials, power hours, and deals going on in at least one restaurant around the city.
After lifting your spirits in the village, the best way to continue your apres would have to be at a Whistler hot tub; either at a Whistler hotel with a private hot tub, Whistler Airbnb with a hot tub, or Whistler house/apartment with a hot tub. Basically: Whistler loves its hot tubs after sports.
You’d be missing out if you didn’t visit at least one hot tub in Whistler while you’re here. There’s a lot to choose from, so take your pick from some of our favourites, or let us know which other great hot tubs you discover.
