The Five S’s of Relaxation: Sun, Surf, Sand, Sea and… Snow!

Snowbunnies, rejoice! The beaches of Maui, El Salvador and Thailand (amongst many others) are renown for their ability to soothe ragged nerves and relax even the most weary of traveler, but unless you live near one of these tropical paradises, summer cannot last year-round. Some people might be surprised to learn that frozen water is just as effective as ocean water at relieving stress, nourishing the body and awakening the mind. SwellWomen honors this power by expanding their selection to offer winter retreats to skiers, snowboarders and snow novices around the globe.

“Snow provides the thrill of adventure that many of us seek. We want to push out boundaries and support our tribe as they do the same.” said Lulu Agan, SwellWomen’s Chief Officer of Bliss. SwellWomen is a luxury wellness retreat organizer, where transformative experiences are offered in tropical paradises such as Maui, El Salvador, Sri Lanka and Indonesia. Lulu, alongside Snow Bunny/Team Leader Liz Saville, are venturing into new territory by bringing a group of wellness-minded women to the slopes of Whistler, British Columbia in order to follow their bliss in a different type of environment.

Just like their global surf and yoga retreats, SwellWomen’s Swell Goes Snow retreat hones in on stellar personal service and luxury accommodations as a means to relaxation. Spa services are included, as well as daily yoga classes and a lift pass to take the group to the slopes. As an element of bliss, the guests on this retreat as encouraged to challenge themselves and redefine their physical and mental limits through fun on the slopes (as well as the mat).

“There are so many slight movements and positions of your body that you must be conscious of to ski/board well, which builds your mental awareness.” said Team Leader Liz Saville. “Waking up at the crack of dawn in the freezing cold may not seem appealing to those of you ‘winter hibernators,’ but add a group of new friends, a morning yoga class watching the sun rise from behind the mountains, a quick warm up in the hot tub and a hearty breakfast made especially for you by our private chef, and you’ve got one heck of a good start to the day!”

The inaugural Swell Goes Snow Retreat is February 18 – 23, 2018. The price for the retreat is $3,595 for double occupancy and $4295 for single occupancy.
