This year we encourage you to be captivated by our spectacular province of British Columbia. Art lovers who seek a world-class art experience need not cross borders. The Audain Art Museum (AAM) in Whistler showcases a permanent collection of more than 200 works of art from British Columbia — from the 18th century to the present day — by diverse, internationally renowned artists.
After a long spring of hunkering down, staying home and staying local, the wanderlust is stronger than ever in many of us right now. Thankfully, British Columbia is opening back up and encouraging local and provincial travel and adventure, but cautiously so, with many new health and safety practices in place.
Millions of people come to Whistler each year to get away from it all — to find more space, breathe the fresh mountain air and enjoy all that the resort and the Coast Mountains have to offer.
Pinning it, sending it, shredding, hucking… whatever you call it, mountain bikers have been coming to Whistler since the mid-1980s to ride down our rugged mountains. It all started in a primitive manner, without bike-specific trails as we know them and initially without chairlifts, but soon lift-accessed mountain biking became a booming business in Whistler. These days, bike parks have become a key summer attraction at many ski resorts around the globe.
Overfishing is a huge global issue, and it can sometimes feel like our efforts to dine sustainably are just a “drop in the ocean” to what is needed, but when it comes to seafood, every dish and every fish count.
The innovative cocktail scene in Whistler, with its beautiful glassware, thoughtful garnishes and on-trend complex flavours, may have once invited serious feelings of FOMO (fear of missing out) for non-alcohol imbibers yearning for a range of choices beyond boring water, juice or pop.
Whistler has you covered for tasty food & drink and unique gifts. Fuel-up with a delicious and nutritious smoothie at Hundo-P The Smoothie Bar; whatever the time of day, check out the menu at RMU Blackcomb, and while you are waiting for your coffee or wrap, browse their selection of high-quality craft skis; enjoy a Bow & Arrows third wave coffee and indulge in a slice of local bread, toasted and topped with your choice of sweet or savoury or savour a freshly made Liége waffle, and browse their selection of thoughtful retail items from ethical producers with aligned environmental values.
With so much anxiety-inducing talk of “social bubbles” these days, how pleasant to think pink and sip on sparkling bubbles instead! We asked three Whistler sommeliers to talk us through their favourite pink picks when it comes to sparkling wine. Perfect to pair with food, superb to sip on the patio and probably one of the few alcoholic beverages you can order with brunch and still feel gloriously glam, here’s our salute to rosé sparkling wine.
