I’ve been invited to spend Pesach 2017 with Pesach on the Mountain at the Four Seasons in beautiful Whistler, BC.
I’ve been hearing wonderful things about Schneur Wineberg’s Pesach on the Mountain program for years. People that have attended have raved about everything from the incredible food, to the lectures and entertainment, from the skiing to the kids camp. While on 20 hour jaunt to NY last week I bumped into one attendee who confessed to me that she felt like a bad mother when her kids never wanted to leave the camp!
My wife and I took a quick 44 hour trip to Vancouver in August (I’m a sucker for that trip when Cathay opens up First class award space from JFK-YVR. I did it in 2012 for exactly zero miles plus tax round-trip, though this time I actually had to redeem the miles 😉 ) and we managed to bump into Schneur at several of Vancouver’s kosher eateries. He gave us great activity suggestions while we talked points and miles. Of course that led to discussion about his world class Pesach program and I’m thrilled to be able to attend it for Pesach 2017.

In 2014, I attended the Smilow’s Pesach program in Weston, FL. There I was able to talk points and miles in an intimate setting where I could give presentations and one-on-one suggestions in a way that is impossible in a 600 person large scale seminar. I’m looking forward to being able to do that once again in Whistler.
Pesach on the Mountain will offer an even more intimate experience than in 2014 as they only host 400 total guests at the fully OK Kosher for Pesach resort, the only AAA 5 diamond hotel in Whistler.
All meat is Glatt kosher, all dairy is Cholov Yisroel, and the program is fully non-gebroktz.
The program sweats the fine details, even the Nespresso machines in each room are kashered for Pesach and replenished daily with kosher for Pesach coffee pods!
Whistler offers a plethora of activities including golf, mountain biking, hiking, snow-mobiling, zip-lining, fishing, canoeing, riding on the Peak 2 Peak Gondola, and shopping in the European-style village.
But it’s most famous for some of the best skiing on the continent with options that run the gamut from beginner to double black diamond on its majestic mountains. Both Whistler and Blackcomb mountains are open for Skiing in April with slopes for all skill levels.
Whistler is a 90 minute drive from Vancouver along the stunning Sea to Sky highway, which is an attraction unto itself:
