All winter long Whistler is host to a packed calendar of events with something to tempt everyone. So, what suits your fancy?

Are you a foodie? Do you love good wine, and learning about wine? Cornucopia is Whistler’s food and drink extravaganza, billed as a “feast for the senses” with winery dinners, interesting seminars, gala tasting events, and let’s not forget, the after-parties. This year Cornucopia is expanding to 11 days — bigger and bolder than ever before.

What about movies? Film buffs can soak up the Whistler Film Festival. It’s five days of stars, fresh films, and… after-parties.

The Christmas holidays come after the film fest. There are fun-filled events for the whole family. New Year’s Eve is also family-friendly, and the fun rages on in the village long after the kids go to bed.

In the heart of the winter ski season there are ski and snowboarding events such as the Peak to Valley race. There’s also Winter Pride, Whistler’s annual gay ski week. And the season tops out with the festival of all festivals — the World Ski and Snowboard Festival.

Even if there’s no organized event on the books, there’s always an après somewhere, and in Whistler, we know how to après, long into the night.

And it only gets better after that because Whistler’s nightclub scene is dialed.

So soak up as much as the local culture as possible — a culture of living large, having fun, making the most of it. The only way to do that is just to get out there.
