 - Summer Season Recruits Out of the Woods, Literally -

Norman Mastalir, Managing Director of Fairmont Chateau Whistler, is pleased to announce the appointment of Frankie Furmont, Guest Services Ambassador and Cub Club President, Fairmont Chateau Whistler, effective June 21, 2017. 

 Frankie Furmont recently returned to Whistler after a long winter hiatus and has quickly proven to be ‘hungry’ for opportunities. In this new capacity as Guest Services Ambassador and Cub Club President at Fairmont Chateau Whistler, Furmont ensures that ‘surprise and delight’ experiences for young – and young at heart – guests are top priority. While perhaps initially appearing slow and aloof, Frankie is fast to engage with guests, turning moments into memories.  

 “Frankie’s approach is fresh and fast, and is certain to elevate our guests’ Whistler experience,” stated Mastalir. “We’re looking forward to Frankie really ‘digging’ in – we can bear-ly contain our excitement!”  

Frankie will focus on evolving Fairmont Chateau Whistler’s kids program by creating a new Cub Club including, but not limited to, engaging games, learning opportunities, and bear aware briefings for guests under the age of 12. Additional details and Cub Club Membership information will soon be provided at the Concierge Desk or by emailing Frankie directly at  

 When not teaching the tots how to be bear smart, Frankie may also be found in the Mallard Lounge volunteering for ‘quality assurance’ of the cocktail program, honing in on Chef Isabel’s rooftop honey, and playing a’round on the Fairmont golf course.  

 Frankie enjoys hiking all summer long, particularly in the mountain alpine, and during the cold winter months can be found taking long leisurely naps.
