The Whistler area has a fantastic food scene, with more than a hundred options ranging from stylish, upscale restaurants like Araxi to pizza joints like Fat Tony’s. Stroll through Whistler Village’s pedestrian-only walkways to get familiar with what’s available.
The après hours are when Whistler lets loose. Skiers’ Plaza, the large square at the base of the Village Gondola, is the place to be in the late afternoon. The patio of the Longhorn Saloon is one of the best spots to sit back with a beer and soak up the sun.
It’s always worth stepping out for some fine dining at least once on every trip. The Zagat-rated Rim Rock Café is a Whistler favourite and draws rave reviews for its fresh, innovative cuisine. Headed to the trails in Squamish? Stop in at the Zephyr Café. The breakfast burritos and vegan cookies are filling.
