The Blue Room: Four Seasons Resort and Residences Whistler and Head-Line Mountain Holidays Launch an Extraordinary Culinary Experience Set in a Hidden Ice Cave

Whistler, BC – Concealed in the rugged mountains of British Columbia, nestled under an ancient ice cap, lies the ice cave setting for a unique, private dining experience by Four Seasons Resort and Residences Whistler and Head-Line Mountain Holidays. Within a cathedral-like cave of blue, Four Seasons Executive Sous Chef David Baarschers will enchant guests with his culinary craftsmanship while they bask in the beauty of the elaborate labyrinth of ice.

 

The adventure to the secluded, unknown ice cave location begins when guests are transported to Canada’s largest, southernmost ice field by helicopter, where they will take in the surrounding alpine region as they soar over towering forests, landscapes of ice, and between rocky volcanic peaks.

 

On arrival, wilderness experience experts from Head-Line Mountain Holidays will guide guests on a journey exploring natural ice sculptures and ice flows to a grand hall of aqua blue magnificence where a Four Seasons server will greet them with a glass of crisp Krug champagne. The five-course gastronomic experience is designed to complement the essence of the location with Northern Divine caviar served on snow, oysters sourced from neighbouring Vancouver Island and grilled long bone with thyme roasted root vegetables.

 

Guests can leave the experience knowing they have contributed to Head-Line Mountain Holidays’ “White is Green” Ice Cap Research Initiative, in partnership with Simon Fraser University. A portion of all Head-Line’s ice cave experience revenues generated helps facilitate research projects by providing hands-on student learning opportunities in a real world ice cap setting without having to go to the Arctic or Antarctic. This research collaboration not only helps students, the data is also shared with guests to provide them with a deeper educational understanding of the influence both we and global warming have to British Columbia’s local ice sheets, ice caps and glaciers.

 

Four Seasons Resort and Residence Whistler, in partnership with Head-Line Mountain Holidays, will launch The Blue Room to coincide with Whistler’s legendary food and wine festival Cornucopia this November.  Bookings can be made through Head-Line Mountain Holidays by calling 604 902 6415.
