Rosé season is in full bloom. Crisp, refreshing and immensely thirst-quenching, dry rosé wines are the perfect summer sippers. Not quite white and certainly not red, quality pink wines are made from black grapes with some direct skin contact after pressing to impart a pretty blush (although methods do vary).
What could be better than summer in Whistler: afternoons by the lake, hiking in the alpine, a barbecue and drinks on the patio? Less than 90 minutes from Vancouver, with options for dining, shopping, galleries and public art, and outdoor adventure, Whistler is at the top of the list of North American mountain towns as a summer destination.
Experience what we love this summer with some local Whistler favourites. Let the chefs assemble a delicious made-to-order sandwich followed by a decadent doughnut at the newly renovated Portobello. Enjoy a refreshing craft brew, fresh-pressed cider or cocktail with friends on the patio at “The Fitz” (The Fitzsimmons Pub). Experience the innovative menu and signature cocktails of the revamped Aura Restaurant, lakeside, at Nita Lake Lodge. Fuel-up with the bounty of choose-your-own seasonal salad choices, soups, curries and fresh-pressed juices at Shred – A Creative Salad Kitchen.
Nothing says summer like a glass filled with a big bouquet of garden-fresh herbs. But some cocktails pack an equally mouth-watering punch with no greenery at all.
The Alpine Loop trail system begins with the Alpine Walk trailhead located mere steps from the Blackcomb Mountain end of the Peak 2 Peak Gondola. The easy-walking, narrow dirt path leaves the sights and sounds of Whistler Blackcomb’s operations behind. Minutes later, hikers are immediately hit with a view of forever-reaching peaks, snow and sky.
Vancouver is a stunning destination to visit year-round, but it really comes alive in the summer. Here’s our handy guide on how to make the most of your visit.
