Have you heard the "buzz" about our new roof top guests? On Saturday June 29, 2013, four bee hives arrived at The Fairmont Chateau Whistler. The bees are now settled in and are working away to create nectar for what will surely be some delicious honey! This is a fantastic green initiative and culinary story that we can share with locals and guests alike. Below are a few factoids about our honey bee program for your reference: WHO: European Honey Bees. Four hives totaling approximately 120,000 bees. WHAT: The bees will work to pollinate local flowers and produce honey that will be harvested by our Chefs for use in culinary and cocktail creations and will be sold in the Portobello Market and Fresh Bakery. The honey produced will be a delicate wildflower variety that will be a result of the local flowers the bees pollinate. WHERE: Hailing from Delta BC, The bees will be located on our rooftop above the Frontenac Ballroom. WHEN: Arrival: June 29, 2013. Departure: Mid September. WHY: This "sweet" new initiative is part of the Fairmonts Green Partnership program, helping the local environment by providing bees to pollinate area gardens and parks. By harvesting the honey, chefs are able to offer a local and sustainable honey for use on site. HOW: Our Beekeeper Steve Gourley will visit the hives every few weeks to ensure the Queen is in place and the hives remain healthy. Once the bees produce enough nectar, Steve will work to spin it into honey. BEES & FAIRMONT GUESTS: Our number one priority is to make sure that our guests and employees are safe and secure
