Whistler Blackcomb

Whistler Blackcomb is considered one of North America’s premier mountain resorts—for good reason. A short, scenic 125-kilometre (78-mile) drive from Vancouver, this resort offers exceptional hospitality, a diverse cultural scene, and dramatic scenery. Two mountains, connected by the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola, offer more than 200 marked runs, 16 alpine bowls, and three glaciers. Epic skiing, combined with a glamorous après scene and endless off-mountain activities, make this an unforgettable ski vacation.

  • Nov 25, 2019: “I’ve been going to Cornucopia for about 5 years and it is always a great event. This is an annual event that happens every November in the slow period just before ski season starts. I like the scale (not too big, and still lots of events - something for everyone). Another thing I like about this event is that you can stay in Whistler for a few days and you can walk to all of the events, or if the event is outside of the village, they will bus you there. This is great because you can enjoy the events without needing to drive afterwards, though you might see some wobbling pedestrians staggering around the village between events. In recent years the scope has expanded beyond wine to include craft beer, whiskey and other spirits. There is Crush, the big event with a conference room full of tasting options, and there is the big party at the Audain art museum, but lately I’ve been enjoying the smaller events with lunch or dinner and wine pairings. At these events you can really experience how wines change when paired well with food. I also like the themed tastings where you can learn about wines and other spirits from different regions of the world. This year I went to a Taste of Japan where we tasted a few samples of sake, a few different types of beer, gin and a couple of whiskeys. There was also another couple of beverages, not sake but something like it, but I forget the name - it was not my favourite, but glad I tried it. If you’ve never been to Cornucopia at Whistler and you love food and drink, I recommend you check it out in 2020. Be warned, some of the events sell out and if you book more than 2 events in one day you might find yourself a part of the stream of people meandering unpredictably through the village.” 1
