Whistler, Canada (Vrbo): There are two rules we believe should govern the winter holidays: 1. Christmas decorations are not to be seen nor heard until after Thanksgiving 2. Black Friday should be rebranded from the International Day of Shopping to the International Day of Planning Your Next Ski Trip.

This year, hum “O Canada” to the tune of “O Christmas Tree” while you book a stay at this luxury mountain chalet in Whistler. While the price tag is a little hefty, if you invite your 25 closest friends, it becomes downright affordable, even after the financial disaster that is the gifting season.

A recent renovation transformed this sizable mountain home into a refuge of modern leisure and comfort. This room also reminds us of one of the perks of choosing winter for your mountain jaunt: the only bears you’ll see are in photos like the one peeking out from the corner.

This chalet is within walking distance to all the Whistler hot spots— Whistler Village and Lost Lake—so you can choose to cook your meals or make the much better decision to cook up some delicious reservations or picnic basket takeout orders instead.

Ever wonder what it would look like to seat 26 hungry guests for dinner every night? It looks like this—a long table that extends out into the horizon. Though, when it comes to cooking for 26, you’re on your own. We have enough trouble cooking for yours truly.

Let’s give a wink and a nod to our hosts for the not-so-subtle subliminal messaging weaved into the living room decor.

You might take one look at this photo and think, “Lounging in the outdoors…in the middle of winter? No, thank you!” But before you make any hasty decisions, may we present you with this short list: barrel sauna, hot tub, two fire pits.

Not all vacations are kid-friendly, and for good reason. Sometimes you just need a break from your adorable little monsters. But this home is not adults-only. While it has all the posh features of a luxury mountain chalet, it is also family friendly with things like this adorable kids bunkroom. If snow hasn’t totally blanketed the ground, you can also send the kids into the yard to hunt for the magical Elf doors that are scattered around the property.

Your 26-strong group can spread out across the 10 bedrooms and nine bathrooms so everyone can lay their heads down in comfort for their long winter slumber.

This is not your mama’s winter cabin. While the wood-paneled walls and ceilings may scream traditional ski chalet, the zebra rug is all modern mansion. This is an interior design scheme that understands you can be a ski lodge paradise without having decor that insists everyone acknowledge that fact every moment of the day.

Welcome to a place where every season is put-put season! Whistler is a chic town that has everything you could want—restaurants and spas, boutiques and mountains sports. But even if you don’t make it into town, you’ll still avoid the FOMO considering this winter chalet is in competition to win the “having it all” contest.

Whistler is an active person’s paradise, what with all the mountain sports at your warmly gloved fingertips. But if your style is more taking advantage of your holiday home’s meditation area and barrel sauna, not only will we not judge, we will deliver a bottle of bubbly to you and leave you alone to find your zen.

Ok, now we’re thinking two trips to Whistler in 2022 might be in order. This hammock looks too delicious to miss out on, so it’s a Whistler Winter and Summer 2022, or bust!

We’ve always admired the sauna culture of the Swedes, though we’re a little less enthusiastic about the cold plunge part of the ritual. (We know, we know, health benefits and all.) It seems entirely more reasonable to plan a warm-blooded polar bear swim by doing your reps between the hot barrel sauna and the hot tub.

There will be no mixing up ski boots in this gorgeously organized mud room. The most important routine of the day during a ski trip is the post-ski routine: put up skis and boots, fire up the indoor fireplaces, and get toasty while you mix up a batch of cocktails. Once your hot toddies and dirty martinis are ready to go, move the party to the hot tub.

Whenever anything ridiculous happens in the U.S.—and, let’s be honest, that’s quite often—everyone always talks about running away to Canada. If we can have these outdoor accommodations and this view for the rest of our lives, then count us in for the Great American Exodus.

House committee to hear from former Washington Football Team employees on misconduct claims

The House Committee on Oversight and Reform plans to hear from former Washington Football Team employees on their misconduct claims against the team. 

In a statement released Thursday, the committee said its chairs Rep. Raja KrishnamoorthiSubramanian (Raja) Raja KrishnamoorthiOvernight Energy & Environment — EPA unveils new pollution monitoring in South Oversight Dem presses meat processors on rising prices Equilibrium/Sustainability — Fire calls infrastructural integrity into question MORE (D-Ill.) and Rep. Carolyn MaloneyCarolyn MaloneyThe Hill's Morning Report - Biden, NATO eye 'all scenarios' with Russia Five Democrats the left plans to target Democrats ask for information on specialized Border Patrol teams MORE (D-N.Y.) will hold a hybrid roundtable with the former employees to discuss their workplace misconduct claims and the NFL’s failure to take steps to prevent sexual harassment and verbal abuse within the WFT organization under the leadership of owner Dan Snyder. 

Ex-WFT employees set to participate in the roundtable include former marketing coordinator and ticket sales representative Emily Applegate; former cheerleader and former director of marketing Melanie Coburn; former Director of Marketing and Client Relations Rachel Engleson; former Coordinator of Business Development & Client Service and former account executive Ana Nunez; and former Video Production Manager and Producer Brad Baker. 

“For more than twenty years, employees of the Washington Football Team were subjected to sexual harassment, verbal abuse, and other misconduct,” Maloney said in the statement.  

“It is becoming increasingly clear that not only did the team fail to protect employees, but the NFL went to great lengths to prevent the truth about this toxic work environment from coming to light.  The NFL’s decision to cover up these abuses raises serious questions about its commitment to setting workplace standards that keep employees safe. I commend these victims for their bravery in coming forward to share their stories.  No organization is above the law, I am committed to getting to the bottom of these abuses and ensuring that every American—no matter where they work—is safe from workplace harassment and discrimination,” Maloney concluded. 

“These victims are bravely coming forward with their stories, sharing details of despicable abuse in their workplace.  The WFT and NFL had a responsibility to protect these employees, and they failed,” Krishnamoorthi said in a statement. 

“Our investigation will continue until the perpetrators of sexual harassment are held accountable.  No person deserves to be harassed or abused at work, and this Committee will do everything in its power to protect employees at the WFT and beyond.”

The hybrid roundtable comes a day after WFT will unveil its new team moniker, after dropping its previous name Redskins due to allegations of racism against the Native American community. 

The committee initially asked WFT and NFL to provide documents from its investigation stemming from a leaked email chain tied to allegations of WFT workplace misconduct. 

The email chain, which spans from 2011 to 2018, involved then-WFT president Bruce Allen and Gruden, who was employed by ESPN as a lead broadcaster for Monday Night Football. 

The email chain contained racist, homophobic and misogynistic language, which led to Gruden resigning from his post as Raiders head coach after the emails resurfaced to the public. 

The league fined the Washington Football Team $10 million in July following its investigation, requiring the team executives to be trained in topics such as bullying and unconscious bias.

The hybrid roundtable is scheduled to take place on Feb.3. 

The Hill has reached out to the NFL for comment.
