10 Must-Do Adventures

10 Must-Do Adventures

Whistler resort, known in the early 1900s as Alta Lake, started out as a summertime fishing destination, and skiing followed a few decades later. However, not long after the resort was born, it became a destination for all kinds of adventure. Endless expanses of forested mountains provide world-class opportunities for outdoor recreation, whether you prefer a simple hike or the intense rush of whitewater rafting.

Emily Carr: Fresh Seeing French Modernism And The West Coast

“Emily Carr: Fresh Seeing - French Modernism and the West Coast,” which runs from Sept. 21, 2019 to Jan. 19, 2020, is the museum’s most ambitious exhibit to date. Upon arriving home to the West Coast of Canada from France, Emily Carr’s approach to painting underwent a dramatic change from her initially conservative art training. This exhibit showcases the vibrant changes to Carr’s style over three significant years: 1910 to 1912.
Connecting with Bears

Connecting with Bears

The bear chooses us. Indigenous peoples have always known this. Many indigenous nations organize themselves under houses such as bear, salmon or deer. Each family is born into an animal with the duty to protect. In this way, all animals are cared for. So, for those not falling within this family system, an animal, like the bear, instead comes looking for us.

Reboot with a Digital Detox

Reboot with a Digital Detox

There are two types of people in the world: Those who can press their two fists flat against each other while extending both arms straight, and those who can’t. So, if your arms resemble a cowboy’s bowed legs rather than two vertical, heaven-reaching tree trunks (go on, try it), do the unthinkable.

Golf Rules! Bringing FUN Back into the Game

Golf Rules! Bringing FUN Back into the Game

Sommeliers' Picks

Sommeliers' Picks

If your only experience of sake was a served-too-warm, headache-inducing, palate-blasting brew, it’s time to think again and give sake another chance. Light, bright, delicate and deliciously smooth, modern sake is brewed in stainless steel or ceramic-lined tanks, rather than barrels, which allows its natural floral, citrus and herbaceous notes to shine through. We asked three Whistler restaurant professionals to tell us which cold sake they’ll be serving this season to pair with everything from ocean-fresh seafood to briny oysters to sushi and sashimi!

Thirty Years of Being Aware

Thirty Years of Being Aware

In the early 1990s, Whistler was in the throes of a development boom. “We talked about a ‘crane-o-metre’ at the time,” said then and current Whistler resident Ken Melamed, speaking about the formative years of the community’s then-fledgling environmental group, the Association of Whistler Area Residents for the Environment (AWARE).
