Snowbound Adventures

Snowbound Adventures

When the snow descends on Whistler, it’s a magical place. That applies just as much to the myriad wintertime experiences available outdoors, on and off the mountains, as it does to the twinkling lights, cultural and culinary experiences and pulsating nightlife to be found in Whistler Village. Whether you are a first-time or seasoned visitor, you don’t have to be a hardcore skier or snowboarder to have a good time here.
Thunder on Ice

Thunder on Ice

After arriving 30 minutes before my “Thunder On Ice” bobsleigh experience at the Whistler Sliding last winter, I walked to the interior of the ice-covered track — host venue for the sliding events during the 2010 Winter Olympics — and watched, along with a half-dozen others, over a period of about 10 minutes, as three skeleton racers flashed by Corner 15. I say “flashed by,” because the speed is difficult for someone who’s only seen bobsleigh, skeleton and luge racing on TV to comprehend. Standing just two metres away, near the bottom of the track, with racers travelling between 140 and 145 kilometres per hour, the speed is mind- numbing.
A Makeover for Dive Bar Classics

A Makeover for Dive Bar Classics

Remember Sex on the Beach? How about White Russians and Long Island Iced Tea? Maybe the crazy ’80s were too much of a blur — or perhaps you were too young to remember what your parents were drinking. Believe it or not, all those dive-bar drinks and cheesy cocktails popularized by Tom Cruise are now receiving modern craft-cocktail makeovers with fresh juices, house-made syrups, premium spirits, proper techniques and previously missing ingredients that elevate them to the next level. Everything old is new again, but this time the drinks taste so much better.

Celebrating a Passion

Celebrating a Passion

James Walt Executive Chef Araxi Restaurant + Oyster Bar It takes a village to grow a restaurant. Such is the subtext of Araxi: Roots to Shoots Farm Fresh Recipes, a sumptuous new farm-to-table cookbook by Executive Chef James Walt. Following on the success of his award-winning first book, this one isn’t so much about Walt and his cooking. Rather, it is a tribute to all the hard-working people - the bartenders, the sommeliers, the managers, the cooks and, most of all, the farmers and food suppliers - who make the acclaimed Whistler restaurant go round.
