The Extended moment - Fifty Years of Collecting Photographs

The Extended moment - Fifty Years of Collecting Photographs

In 1839, Louis-Jacques-Mandé Daguerre invented the daguerreotype, the first photographic process available to the public. Photographs were immediately embraced as a documentary medium: a way to capture actual events in a single still frame, with no fictional elements.
Whistler Blackcomb’s Zones for Beginners, Intermediates and Experts

Whistler Blackcomb’s Zones for Beginners, Intermediates and Experts

For first-time visitors, it’s easy to look up at the peaks of Whistler and Blackcomb mountains and perhaps feel a bit intimidated. Looking around from the lifts, you’ll notice ski tracks going everywhere — between rocks, through the trees, and even off cliffs!
Making  Memories

Making Memories

Some of the most magical Whistler experiences happen on the outskirts of the Village, deep in the forests that surround the town. These out-of-the-ordinary activities will make you feel like you are worlds away from your everyday life. They’re perfect for families and those who perhaps don’t ski or snowboard. These stand-out activities will help create awesome memories and give you some epic, brag-worthy stories.
Cold As Ice

Cold As Ice

Mention the word ice to any skier or snowboarder, and the person will likely shudder and shake as if touched by frozen hands at the start of a massage. The thought of edges sliding uncontrollably through your turn is incredibly frustrating, but that sound — oh, that sound. Ugh!
Preserving Summer for Winter

Preserving Summer for Winter

Humans have preserved food since the beginning of time, capturing the full energy of the sun to dehydrate herbs, fruits, meat and fish or, in cold climates, using ice to freeze food so that we could survive the barren winter months. Sure, we have year-round access to almost everything now, but nothing can beat the taste of local produce preserved at the height of its deliciousness!

Unwind at The Spa

Unwind at The Spa

Over the years, Whistler has developed a reputation for being an escape from reality where couples come not only to have fun but to connect or reconnect on a deeper level. With a bounty of activities available, few can compare to the experience of going to the spa.

My Whistler - A Local's Perspective

My Whistler - A Local's Perspective

Like many Scandinavians, Maria Lundgren literally grew up on skis, both alpine and cross country, but because of her hometown’s location an hour south of the Arctic Circle, much more the latter than the former. Learn how she came to visit Whistler, why she chose to stay and raise a family here, and what are some of her favourite activities and hangouts!
Why Don't You

Why Don't You

Whistler’s spectacular scenery is the backdrop for an exceptional variety of activities. Why don't you try some of these unforgettable Whistler experiences this winter? Experience Whistler’s easy access to the backcountry and get powder happy on a “bucket-list” heli-skiing adventure; fuel up for your ski or snowboard day with a fresh tracks mountaintop breakfast and beat the crowds onto the slopes; go downhill tubing at Whistler Blackcomb’s Coca-Cola Tube Park; shop local for that one-of-a-kind-gift at the Made In Whistler Market.
Sommeliers’ Picks

Sommeliers’ Picks

Winter’s snowy mountains and sub-zero temperatures invite comforting restoratives to sip and savour around the fire. What better fits this category than fortified wine? From port and sherry to vermouth and Marsala, fortified wines are made by adding a distilled spirit to wine either before fermentation is complete — which yields sweet, high-proof fortified wine — or near the end, or after fermentation, for a dryer style. Cheers!
What We Love Now

What We Love Now

Experience what we love this winter with some local Whistler favourites. Ski-down or take the short drive to visit Creekside Village and indulge in a treat of locally made gelato or sorbet, pick-and-mix candy, healthful smoothies, warming oatmeal bowls and Italian coffees at Confetti Gelato; fulfill your passion for patties at Splitz Grill on Main Street — the local’s favourite casual place with serious burgers, with fresh patties made daily and more than 40 homemade toppings; try some locally made gin or vodka from Whistler’s first local distillery Montis Distilling in Function Junction.
