While only time will tell if the final rose ceremony will lead to everlasting love for The Bachelorette, there’s no denying that the show’s latest reality romantic will take from her adventure for amour a bouquet of memories which will include a getaway to Whistler, British Columbia, a destination which will host many of the events in the 2010 Olympic Games.
Cameras rolled in April 2009 as Jillian Harris and the 10 remaining men vying to win her affection unpacked their luggage at The Fairmont Chateau Whistler. Not only a site for the suitors and their sweetheart to stay, the retreat’s Mallard Terrace would provide a place for a romantic repast and its Wine Cellar a spot where nine nine gentleman would receive a rose, symbolizing the continuation of their courtship for one more week.
The beauty of the Canadian wilderness provided a dramatic backdrop for love’s potential as Harris and her would-be honeys enjoyed a snowmobile excursion, courtesy of Outdoor Adventures at Whistler, to Callaghan Lodge. Later, love was literally in the air as The Bachelorette and one potential beau flew over the valleys on a Ziptrek tour, (which ended with the couple clinking glasses in the private wine cellar of Bearfoot Bistro) while another date involved a ski plane flight to Champagne Glacier.
A ride aboard the new PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola was the perfect way to say goodbye to Whistler. Jillian Harris will share her experiences from her trip when the two-hour episode of The Bachelorette airs on ABC on June 15, 2009. See a sneak peek at the episode in the clip below:
