You don’t have to dive into the snow at Whistler’s Scandinave Spa, but cold-water dunks are part of the purifying experience. Located in a forest of cedar and spruce 1 mile north of Whistler Village in British Columbia, the spa opened two weeks ago, in time for the Winter Olympic Games.

Sit in a eucalyptus steam bath, soak in outdoor thermal pools, or duck under a cascading waterfall before plunging into the frigid pools. Then relax on an Adirondack chair in one of the solariums. The spa’s hot-cold-relaxation approach aims to cleanse the body, improve circulation, and release feel-good hormones.

It’s open to anyone 19 or older, rain, shine, or snow. 888-935-2423, www.Scandinave.com
