Great Ways to Combine Your Whistler Adventurous Side with Fine Dining Bliss
Whistler brings many types of people together: those who dream of sliding on snow all year long, those who place a lot more importance on their mountain bike(s) than their car, those who love to party until the wee hours, and those who love to make sure they are eating in style!
Sometimes a Whistler visitor is a combination of them all, and more. In Whistler, fine dining is all around you, and the choices are better than ever. In fact, the resort has upped the ante with new tasting events designed to give visitors, and local residents, something new to try with every season.
Spring is Here and the Dining is Fresh
Luckily spring has arrived, and just a half hour from Whistler is the finest farmland in BC – the Pemberton Valley. From the best potatoes in the province to gourmet microgreens, Pemberton produce will be found in the finest Whistler restaurants. Wait for the rhubarb and asparagus to arrive in May and June, and in late June/July get ready for juicy strawberries and more.
Indulge Your Inner Foodie with the AnnaLena Dinner Series at the Audain
The Audain Art Museum has been proving time and time again that it is bringing a lot more than world-class art to Whistler. From Zen-like yoga sessions to après-viewing, the Audain is reaching out to new audiences with each passing month. It brings the gourmet-conscious crowd inside its doors on April 21 with the AnnaLena Dinner Series Volume 1. Check out amazing and ancient Haida masks, Emily Carr masterpieces, contemporary wunderkinds of the Vancouver photo realism art scene…and wow your taste buds at the same time. In other words, immerse your senses!
Choose Your Adventure
On the other hand, the next few months are a great time to indulge in great food as well as test your mettle in athletic pursuits! In June, push your boundaries with the Whistler Half Marathon – a fantastic way to see if running longer distances is a passion you wish to pursue. Many people use the “Whistler Half” as a starting point for other marathons and even their first sprint-length or full triathlon!
It All Gets Revving on the May Long Weekend
The GO Fest is Whistler’s celebration of being active, and ushers in the amazing activities that are available throughout the resort. The Great Outdoors Fest is a showcase of the plethora of sports that can be taken up in the valley, from sailing on Alta Lake to yoga. If there is one weekend to take it all in, this is it!
