Sleigh bells ring, are you listening? They’re summoning you to a ski getaway in the winter wonderland of glistening snow. Just like snowflakes, every winter holiday experience is unique, so you have choices to make. For unforgettable fun-in-the-snow memories, opt for a getaway that combines luxury accommodation with incredible natural settings, like these iconic Fairmont fairytale lodges.
Every great ski resort starts with a spectacular mountain. Consider Fairmont Tremblant, at the base of Mont Tremblant, one of the highest peaks in Québec’s Laurentian Mountains. Many say it offers the best skiing in eastern North America.
The hotel features over 300 spacious suites, chic restaurants, indoor/outdoor swimming pools, and a complete ski-in/ski-out experience that makes transportation to the slopes unnecessary. After an exhilarating day on the snow, you can relax and unwind in the state-of-the-art Moment Spa.
Guests enjoy hefty discounts and daily ski credits with two winter packages, the Ski Flex Offer and the Mountain of Activities Offer. The details are slightly different, but you can generally apply credits to lift tickets, ski rentals and lessons, or meals and drinks at the hotel’s restaurants and bars.
Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu
Charlevoix, another idyllic region in Québec, enchants with its rolling hills and jagged mountains beside the St. Lawrence River. Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu reflects the setting perfectly. Built at the end of the 19th century, the French château-style manor perches on Pointe-Au-Pic clifftops near the scenic village of La Malbaie. The castle-like building offers over 400 stylish rooms and suites, a casino, a spa and exceptional dining options.
For exciting alpine skiing, head to Mont Grand-Fonds. Just a 20-minute drive from the hotel, the ski area has a 1,100-foot vertical drop, an acrobatic snow park and trails for all levels. Le Massif de Charlevoix is also handy for hotel guests, and includes 50-plus trails across 400 acres.
Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu invites you to book a Winter Fun Package. This includes a 10% discount on accommodation and a $100-per-day credit toward activities and adventures like dog sledding, guided snowmobile excursions, culinary tours or alpine ski tickets.
Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge
The snow-capped peaks of Canada’s spectacular Rocky Mountains are the centerpiece of Jasper National Park. Come winter, skiers flock to Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge to hit the slopes. This luxury hideaway resort overlooks sparkling Lac Beauvert and offers a gorgeous choice of accommodations, from chalet-style guest rooms and spacious suites to secluded log cabins. You’ll also enjoy superb restaurants, a heated outdoor pool, and an award-winning spa and fitness center.

Fairmont Le Château Montebello
A historic resort overlooking the Ottawa River in Québec, Fairmont Le Château Montebello is one of Canada’s grand railroad hotels. Constructed of western red cedar in 1930, the world’s largest log cabin is surrounded by 300 acres of old-growth woodland.
With over 200 welcoming guest rooms, an impressive fitness center and a wealth of on-site winter activities, “rustic” never looked better. What a pleasure to relax in front of the lounge fireplace after a long day of cross-country skiing!
The resort is offering a special Winter Fun Package that wraps a variety of amenities into the accommodation price, including daily breakfast, waiver of the daily resort experience fee, plus a $20 spa credit per person.
Fairmont Chateau Whistler
In a stunning British Columbia setting, Fairmont Chateau Whistler is a magnet for skiers heading to Whistler Blackcomb, famed for its 8,000-plus acres of skiable terrain. With hundreds of tree-lined trails, epic bowls and steep couloirs, it has a well-deserved reputation for some of the finest skiing on the continent. Blackcomb Gondola is only steps from the ski-in/ski-out hotel, so reaching the slopes is a breeze.
Fairmont Chateau Whistler is always a tempting option for those dreaming of a snowy adventure, but it’s currently even more attractive thanks to a winter special. Reserve the Ultimate Ski Package for 10% off accommodation and two Blackcomb lift tickets per night.
Fairmont Banff Springs
Say “Banff” to a skiing enthusiast and watch their eyes light up. Part of the UNESCO-listed Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks, the resort town has long been a ski mecca, thanks to its sweeping mountain views, light powder and long snow season. For overnight stays, Fairmont Banff Springs is the top choice.
Nicknamed Canada’s “Castle in the Rockies,” the 1880s railway hotel has undergone extensive renovations over the decades. Today the property has over 700 guest rooms, a luxury spa and an outdoor skating rink, as well as world-class skiing at three nearby areas: Norquay, Banff Sunshine Village and Lake Louise Ski Resort.
The Banff Ski & Stay Offer gives guests a 30% room discount on stays of five nights or more. It also includes complimentary breakfast and parking, plus ski shuttle service.
Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise
Another excellent option for a ski vacation in Banff National Park is Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. Offering the same class of accommodation and attentive service as Fairmont Banff Springs, the hotel features an unrivaled view of its namesake lake, which opens for ice skating in winter. The 500-plus guest rooms and suites are tranquil and elegant, and an easy drive from the renowned local skiing areas.
