The Winter Side of Whistler

The Winter Side of Whistler

Whistler locals and visitors have been obsessed with skiing for half a century, ever since the first lifts opened in 1966. Since those early days, the town’s repertoire of winter sports and activities has expanded enormously.
Audain Art Museum

Audain Art Museum

Whistler’s newest tourist attraction is also a first in Canada: The Audain Art Museum is the only museum in the country devoted to the art of a single province. The result of Vancouver property developer Michael Audain’s private collection turned not-for-profit institution, the museum presents works from pre- conquest British Columbia to now — ancient and modern, representational and abstract. It may just be the perfect entry point into understanding B.C. — its past and its present, the people and the place.

Shrubs Make a Comeback

Shrubs Make a Comeback

A shrub — sweet-and-sour syrup made from fruits pickled in vinegar — is the hot new ingredient for cutting-edge bartenders. They are used in place of the usual lime or lemon juice, to add acidity and balance other flavours. Even though all the cool kids are making their own shrubs these days, the concept is actually an old-fashioned classic.

When Zen Meets Adrenaline

When Zen Meets Adrenaline

In an increasingly stressful world, where it seems we are faced with more work, less time, and a tsunami of digital information to navigate, there is a paradoxical trend emerging in the wellness travel industry that pairs physically intense, high-adrenaline activities with Zen-like spa treatments. Travellers are now seeking experiences that combine a heady rush with an après recovery and deep relaxation experience.
The Whistler Mountain Bike Park is Going BIG!

The Whistler Mountain Bike Park is Going BIG!

While it’s always been a great place for mountain bikers to “go big” (a slang phrase meaning to jump as high and far as possible), the Whistler Mountain Bike Park is about to go big itself, with the recent announcement of major development plans that will add more than 50 kilometres of new trails and expand the park to nearly double its current size.
Golf's Most Important Hole

Golf's Most Important Hole

The history of golf in Whistler may not be as long and rich but it’s significant in its own right, as the four main courses in the area were designed by some of the game’s greatest architects, and provide both challenging and memorable golfing experiences. Let’s take a quick look at the history of golf in Whistler and examine our favourite hole at each — some say perhaps the most important: the 19th!

The Spirit of a Bear Lives On

The Spirit of a Bear Lives On

At the forest’s edge near Olympic Station on Whistler Mountain rests a large stone marking a grave. A memorial plaque honours Jeanie, one of Whistler’s most famous residents — a black bear easily recognized by the distinctive V-shaped, white patch of fur on her chest. Jeanie was loved by locals and visitors alike, and her life and death have had a lasting impact on what we’ve learned about coexisting with bears.
