Experience what we love this winter with some local Whistler favourites.
Eleven-year-old Sofia Aragon gets giddy every time she has a chance to get airborne on her skis during sessions at the Wednesday night Hoppers’ program at Whistler Olympic Park (WOP). The young Squamish resident found plenty to stoke her enthusiasm during her first season as a ski jumper-in-training in the winter of 2018-’19.
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.
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?
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!
