The Winter Side of Whistler

The Winter Side of Whistler

While many places embrace winter as a time of rest and dormancy, a period when the fields lay fallow, the onset of winter in Whistler is when the locals get busy. The first activity is to extricate winter gear from underneath summer gear. Then there are boards and skis to wax, ice skates to sharpen, hockey sticks to tape up, and crazy carpets to unroll. Seasoned experts know that assembling snow-sport clothing takes at least a half day, and that it needs to be done well in advance of Opening Day on the mountains.
Photography Process & Perspective

Photography Process & Perspective

The art of photography has seen a vast evolution, especially in recent years since the advent of digital cameras and editing software. Interestingly, there is a community of photographers who purposefully stick to traditional methods and equipment, while others happily embrace digital cameras and post-processing as simply today's way of taking pictures, or taking them even further.

Whistler's Ghost Town

Whistler's Ghost Town

In 1926, while Myrtle and Alex Philips of Rainbow Lodge were setting Whistler on the course to becoming the resort we know today, Alison and Ross Barr of Mission purchased an 11-acre parcel at the northeast tip of Green Lake and built the pioneer sawmill settlement of Parkhurst. The time came, however, when enterprise found brighter opportunities elsewhere, and Parkhurst slowly succumbed to a natural death.
Pemberton

Pemberton

Nestled in a fertile valley and tightly surrounded by incredible snowy peaks, the village of Pemberton is a hidden gem at the heart of the Coast Mountains. Located just 25 minutes north of Whistler, Pemberton (known to locals as "Spud Valley") enjoys a slightly warmer and sunnier climate. Combined with the rarity of flat ground amidst the Coast Mountains, this makes the area a prime agricultural zone.

The 'Iron Women' of Ironman

The 'Iron Women' of Ironman

On July 27th 2014, the Ironman Canada triathlon returns to Whistler for the 2nd year. The iconic endurance race will take competitors through a 2.4-mile swim in Alta Lake, a 112-mile bike ride touring through the Callaghan Valley and Pemberton, and finally a 26.2-mile run around Whistler. Even though the average triathlete is male, more women are signing up for one of the toughest endurance events on the planet.
We’ll drink to that

We’ll drink to that

While beer in North America has traditionally been considered a ‘man’s’ beverage, the times are changing: last year’s inaugural Whistler Village Beer Festival drew a crowd of close to 2300 that seemed almost half male, half female. President and Founder of Vancouver’s Deep Cove Brewers and Distillers Shae De Jaray says within the craft brewing industry, 25% of the market is now women, and the number is growing.
What We Love Now

What We Love Now

Some of the things we love now: Naked Lunch, with their tasty and nutritious menu from only the freshest fruits and vegetables. Behind the Red Door, featuring traditional cuisine that delivers serious bang for the buck such as Cassoulet and West Coast Bouillabaisse. Frosty Delights' snow cones made from incredibly light, shaved ice and all-natural fruit-syrups.
Vodka Tasting

Vodka Tasting

Have you ever been in a room built specifically to maximize the pleasure of drinking and the nuances of taste? No, we’re not talking about your favourite watering hole, or grandpa’s wine cellar. But there is, in Whistler, a one-of-a-kind room designed perfectly to enhance the tasting experience. With walls hewn from crystal-clear blocks of ice, the air is startlingly, breathtakingly fresh and has the sort of cold that makes your skin tingle. At -32° Celsius (-26° Fahrenheit), the Belvedere Ice Room at Bearfoot Bistro is the coldest vodka tasting room in the world.
