On Christmas, we went up to Whistler and experienced the Sleigh ride and fondue dinner combo (from $99).
We got there a bit late, around 7pm. It was already dark, and we were the only ones on the sleigh, so we got a private tour.
The sleigh was pulled by two working horses. We were given blankets, and boy was I glad, cuz I was freezing! It was too bad that it was so dark because we couldn’t see much, but we got a ride through the ‘night’ scene of Whistler. The tour guide also sang, making the ride more fun. Be dressed for the weather!
Then it was a 3-course dinner including cheese and fondue & dessert at The Chalet at The Fairmont Chateau Whistler hotel.A very cozy and warm restaurant.
The dinner starts off with salad. Then the fun fondue dining begins with a cheese fondue with vegetables, followed by Fondue Chinoise (broth based) served with beef tenderloin, prawns and salmon. For dessert, chocolate fondue with fruits and marshmallows!
The server was very friendly and helpful, especially since our fire kept burning out. The taste was delicious, and since you can cook your meat as rare or well as you wanted, it was perfect. I am not really a chocolate person, but loved the chocolate fondue! Mmmmmm!

An excellent experience during the winter holidays!
