If you’re like many Whistler locals and visitors, your feet spent the winter being stuffed into ski and snowboard boots, ice skates and winter boots.
With flip-flop weather upon us, it’s time to think about
freeing your feet.
But before you slip into your sandals, it’s an excellent idea to give
your poor, neglected feet a little TLC with a well-deserved pedicure.
We’ve scouted out the most indulgent, restorative foot treatments
in Whistler, so kick up your heels and let the professionals work
A treatment at the newly refurbished The Spa at Nita Lake Lodge is
luxurious from start to finish, beginning with complimentary plush
robes, a heavenly relaxation lounge and access to the steam room,
hot tub and pool area. There will be plenty of time to show off your
sparkling feet by the pool later — but first, treat yourself to the Nita
The 75-minute treatment includes a thorough exfoliation featuring
the energizing and detoxifying ilā Spa Body Scrub. The organic
Himalayan salt scrub doesn’t just leave your skin feeling silky smooth;
its ingredients, including Alpine lavender, wild organic juniper berry
and rosehip seed oil form a powerful elixir that stimulates circulation,
boosts the immune system and nourishes even the deepest layers of
skin. The Nita Pedicure also includes an extended foot and lower leg
massage, a detoxifying rose mud mask for your feet and OPI Nail
Envy nail strengthener as the base coat of polish, for added durability.
SANDAL READY FOR THE SUMMER
STORY BY MAGEE WALKER
Amanda Piché, head esthetician at The Spa at Nita Lake Lodge,
believes ongoing maintenance is the key to being sandal ready.
“Once sandal season starts, our feet tend to dry out more than
usual, so getting regular pedicures can really help with that,” she
says. “Don’t forget to include the bottoms of your feet when you
moisturize your body.”
