Snowbound Adventures

Snowbound Adventures

When the snow descends on Whistler, it’s a magical place. That applies just as much to the myriad wintertime experiences available outdoors, on and off the mountains, as it does to the twinkling lights, cultural and culinary experiences and pulsating nightlife to be found in Whistler Village. Whether you are a first-time or seasoned visitor, you don’t have to be a hardcore skier or snowboarder to have a good time here.

Thunder on Ice

Thunder on Ice

After arriving 30 minutes before my “Thunder On Ice” bobsleigh experience at the Whistler Sliding last winter, I walked to the interior of the ice-covered track — host venue for the sliding events during the 2010 Winter Olympics — and watched, along with a half-dozen others, over a period of about 10 minutes, as three skeleton racers flashed by Corner 15. I say “flashed by,” because the speed is difficult for someone who’s only seen bobsleigh, skeleton and luge racing on TV to comprehend. Standing just two metres away, near the bottom of the track, with racers travelling between 140 and 145 kilometres per hour, the speed is mind- numbing.
Sliding to Success

This year Whistler Blackcomb (WB) has focused its efforts on accommodating new skiers and snowboarders by investing $2.4 million to improve the mountains’ learning areas. Within the resort’s 8,000+ acres of skiable terrain there are plenty of beginner-friendly zones.
Audain Museum

Audain Museum

Merely a fledgling, just seven months old, the Audain Art Museum has already welcomed more than 30,000 people through its doors to tour the extraordinary permanent collection of nearly 200 artworks from coastal British Columbia. While most ventures of this tender age are learning to crawl, the museum is leaping ahead, embracing both art aficionados and those with an appreciation for art, of all ages, in a dance spanning four centuries of art history.

Celebrating a Passion

Celebrating a Passion

James Walt Executive Chef Araxi Restaurant + Oyster Bar It takes a village to grow a restaurant. Such is the subtext of Araxi: Roots to Shoots Farm Fresh Recipes, a sumptuous new farm-to-table cookbook by Executive Chef James Walt. Following on the success of his award-winning first book, this one isn’t so much about Walt and his cooking. 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.
