Winter in Whistler

Updated: Feb 2

JANUARY 19, 2024 • TRAVEL GUIDE

Looking to embrace the winter this year? Where better than a gorgeous Winter Wonderland like Whistler? Between pristine slopes, fine dining, friendly locals, stunning scenery, thermal spas, and epic après hot spots, Whistler boasts the ideal getaway for black diamond shredders and fashionable snow bunnies alike. I've curated the perfect itinerary to take the legwork out of planning your Canadian holiday! (Save your legs for the slopes, eh.) Read on and let's chat about your very own Winter in Whistler:



Recommendations

Day 1



 

Day 2

  • Free morning / gear up to hit the slopes

  • Après at The Garibaldi Lift Co. (Remember, après is typically between 3-5pm and these hot spots will fill up quick with skiers ready to soothe their jelly-legs!)

  • Dinner at Hy's Steakhouse for prime steaks & cold martinis

  • Free evening for post-dinner cocktails or games by a rolling fire



 

Day 3

  • Free morning / gear up to hit the slopes

  • Lunch at Christine's on Blackcomb, located at the top of the Blackcomb Gondola, offering panoramic views & wine flights. Yes, please.

  • Free après afternoon, this time hit the hoppin' patio at The Longhorn Saloon (you'll need to reserve a table in advance)

  • Dinner and craft beers at the charming & rustic Stonesedge Kitchen


 

Day 4

  • Free morning to enjoy brunch at Crêpe Montagne, a lovely little French crêperie that offers sweet & savory crepes, fondue, and mimosas! Not a bad way to start the day. (Don't sleep on this option though, they host walk-ins only.)

  • Enjoy an afternoon of blissful relaxation & digital detox at the Scandinave Spa, an outdoor thermal spa that also offers a menu of massage treatments

  • aaand then undo all of that relaxation at the Whistler Sliding Centre with some exhilarating bobsleighing at 125+ kph (not sure what that is in mph. I'm a luxury travel advisor, not a mathematician.)

  • Ski rental pick-up at hotel, get ready for dinner

  • Savor your final dinner of impossibly fresh oysters & seafood, at Araxi. Concluding your trip with caviar & champagne is quite the power move.
