Iconic Mountain Experiences
Sun-dappled glorious peaks, evergreen forests and lingering pink sunsets: there’s nothing like winter in the mountains. Take the adventure to new heights with mountain-top experiences.
- Immersive New Encounter with Gray Wolves in Yellowstone: Embark on an immersive experience this winter with the chance to see the elusive gray wolf population of Yellowstone National Park in a day-long excursion offered by Four Seasons Jackson Hole, in partnership with Jackson Hole Wildlife Safaris and Yellowstone Safari Company. The adventure begins with a flyover journey of the greater Yellowstone basin. Upon arrival in the park, learn about the history, movement and behaviour patterns of the gray wolf, with the opportunity to potentially see wolves in their natural habitat, in addition to moose, elk, bison and bears. A portion of the proceeds of each trip is donated to both the Yellowstone Wolf Project and Environmental Defense Fund, in an effort to preserve and protect the gray wolf population of Yellowstone and the local environment. The cost for the Day with the Wolves adventure is USD 16,000, all inclusive, for up to six guests, and includes customized, full-day food and beverage.
- Hit the Slopes in Santa Fe: Experience the best of winter in New Mexico with a fun-filled day of skiing at the Santa Fe Ski Basin and a stay in one of the relaxing casitas at Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado Santa Fe. With the Ski Santa Fe package starting at USD 1,400, enjoy two adult lift tickets for two days with priority access, transportation to and from the basin and a personal ski butler, who will fit guests onsite upon check-in for skis and boots, and ensures the delivery of the equipment to guests prior to heading out. After a day on the slopes, unwind with a crackling fire prepared by the Resort’s fireplace butler.
- From Snow to Sunshine: Join Four Seasons Whistler this winter in leaving the frosted caps of the mountains, and escape to the Sunshine Coast’s Princess Louisa Inlet. Gather the family (those who aren’t afraid of heights) and soar down toward the coast, with an hour of awestriking view; from the largest glacier in the Whistler area, to winding rivers running down to the ocean. If that were not thrilling enough, touch down on a private island and absorb the beauty and serenity of the landscape - and in the spirit of the season, indulge in a Four Seasons Whistler afternoon tea, making for the perfect afternoon thrill.
- Vail Mountain’s 60th Anniversary Celebration: Named #1 Resort in the Mountain West category and #21 Best Resort in the World by Condé Nast Traveler 2022 Readers’ Choice Awards, Four Seasons Vail has much to celebrate. The Resort team at Four Seasons is thrilled to join Vail Mountain in commemorating the resort’s 60th anniversary, a season-long event that will include mountaintop ice bars, snow bungalows, photo stops, bespoke gondola rides, and a range of other timeless alpine experiences that draw on Vail Mountain’s rich history and singular style of high-altitude hospitality.
Picture-perfect moments to spend with loved ones can be found all across Four Seasons Mountain Resorts. Exceptional and inspired après experiences make for the ideal setting to recharge and reconnect at the end of the day.

- G.O.A by Sajish Kumar: Nestled among snow topped mountain peaks, Executive Chef Sajish Kumar’s hometown of Goa, India comes to life in a flavour-bursting culinary experience at Four Seasons Whistler winter pop-up restaurant. The inspiration comes from Chef Kumar’s childhood kitchen, and time spent with family learning and absorbing how different spices and ingredients come together; and the menu blends his own traditional family recipes and passion for Goan cuisine with the finest produce and fresh seafood British Columbia has to offer, mastering the coast-to-coast concept. This is the place to indulge after a day on the slopes with an exquisite meal, where Chef Kumar shares the comfort of home with an elevated twist.
