Food & Drink

IN THE LAST 50 YEARS, since Whistler Mountain first opened for skiing, Whistler has been in the business of fueling hungry skiers. We made it our mission to know exactly what they like, which is why there has been an evolving foodie scene in Whistler for several decades.

Even the most basic ski fare has evolved into something special.

Nachos. This is standard après food. In Whistler, however, you can get it any style — vegetarian, with layers of cheese throughout, with pulled pork. We take our nachos as seriously as we take our weather forecasting.

But nachos are just the tip of the iceberg.

Skiers want comfort food such as hearty bowls of soup to keep them warm but they also want to be dazzled with a little slice of West Coast flavour.

See what our insider Chef Brad Cumming has to say about this! There is a fine line between keeping things light and fresh and indulging in the decadent. Whistler’s chefs are pros at walking this line whether it’s traditional Japanese food you’re after, a little spice from Mexico or the rich delights of Indian. It’s all here.

Whistler is on the culinary cutting-edge, making the most of locally-sourced products: fresh veggies grown in farms just half an hour away in Pemberton, herbs from rooftop patios, wine from Fort Berens in Lillooet. It’s all here and it’s all world-class. Don’t count calories while you’re here on vacation. The only number you need to be thinking about is centimetres of fresh snow. Let the chefs here take care of the rest.
