Rejuvenation Escape

Lululemon’s content queen, Kate MacLennan, recommends the best ways to find your inner-bliss in Whistler

Style-savvy, fast-talking, soul-surfing urbanista, Kate MacLennan, knows that city living can take its toll. Her solution? Take a retreat from city life, with an escape to Whistler every chance she gets. Here are some of her favourite ways to unplug, unwind and reconnect. It’s all about slowing down, going local, and getting a dose of fresh mountain air (bonus points for putting on the “out of office” auto-responder on Friday or Monday for an extended getaway).

Itinerary

Unwind at the Scandinave Spa

“I lie in the sauna and look outside at the wind in the trees. Total rejuvenation.”

Dawn Coffee on the Dock

“Take a steaming mug of coffee and something totally calorific from Pure Bread to enjoy on the dock first thing in the morning.” And when you can’t escape those pesky emails, bring the laptop along for an office with better views than any skyscraper.

Itinerary

Hike for Flowers

“Garibaldi and Black Tusk are amazing. The High Note Trail on Whistler is really accessible too. I’m such a sucker for the flowers.”

Itinerary

Cocktail Hour at Alta Bistro

“Alta Bistro is my new favourite place. It’s all the quality and none of the attitude that you get in the city. The food is spectacular. The cocktails are amazing. It’s sophisticated without being snooty.”

Itinerary

Just Breathe

“The air is so damn fresh, it’s really extraordinarily fresh. You think it’s fresh when you get to Vancouver from Toronto. But when you walk by Fitzsimmons Creek, you get this smell of the changes in topography. You pick up on it in different senses, not just your eyes.”

Itinerary

Outdoor Yoga

“Wanderlust is a super rad chance to practice with all these teachers from all over the world that you wouldn’t otherwise have access to, who you can then start to follow online. And Lululemon often offer free yoga classes. I love drop-in yoga because I like to keep my schedule flexible and it lets me try different studios.”

Itinerary

Wander Around the Farmer’s Market

“Get a Japanese ‘jegga pancake.’ I use it to try and assuage my hunger as I wander the market, but I still buy too much. Can you go wrong? Wander around and taste all the food that has come from the land around you.”

Itinerary

Enjoy a Beer by the GLC Drop

“To sit on the GLC patio and have a beer, out in the sunshine and beautiful air, see a bear wander by, and watch people hucking their bikes right there, is mind-blowing.”
