Undeniably, the spectacular mountain backdrop and access to nature is our foundation, but it is the people who live here plus those who have come before us, and the talents they have brought with them, that allow that base to prosper, making Whistler and the Sea to Sky corridor the sought-after destination that it is.

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.
