Whistler's aTwitter about The Bachelorette


The Bachelorette continues her British Columbia adventure that started in Vancouver on the June 8 broadcast. On next week's installment of the popular reality show on June 15, Alberta native Jillian Harris heads to Whistler. Her male entourage has been reduced to ten.

Read more about it here in my Seattle Travel Examiner blog.

If you happen to be in Whistler on Monday, June 15, head over to The Fairmont Chateau Whistler, where the boys and Jillian stayed back in
April (I'm assuming in separate wings). Whistler Village is still all aTwitter about their visit and the upcoming show.

The Fairmont Chateau Whistler is putting together a special viewing party in the hotel's Mallard Lounge, with several large screens set up; there will also be one outdoors on The Mallard Terrace, weather permitting. For serious fans, there's a quiet zone in The Mallard's private Spirit Room.

They've even come up with a special cocktail named
Wild Rose, which is the floral emblem of Jillian’s native Alberta. Pints of Whistler Lager will also be served, and for every Wild Rose or Whistler Lager purchased, viewers will receive a raffle ticket to enter into a drawing. Prizes include a round of golf, passes for PEAK 2 PEAK and the grand prize of a True Attraction* package.

For an extra $49, loyal Bachelorette fans can take a behind-the-scenes tour of the hotel and and see the areas taped for the show; enjoy a glass of celebratory champagne in the Penthouse where the Bachelors bunked; and indulge in a three-course dinner in The Wine Room where the rose ceremony was held. Afterward, join the others in The Mallard Lounge for the episode airing at 8 PM. Reservations are available at 604.938.2033.

*The True Attraction package includes accommodation in a Fairmont room; chocolate dipped strawberries on arrival; breakfast; and a $100 credit toward a Whistler attraction of your choice (Jillian chose Ziptrekking). Rates begin at $279 CAD, based on double occupancy, and the package is available June 15-September 30, 2009.
