Food + Drinks
We are so lucky in Whistler. Unlike most ski towns, Whistler has endless healthy, delicious and diverse food and beverages options. There is nothing sub-par about the restaurant and cafe offerings in this town. See below for some of mine, and my families personal favourites.
By far our favourite bakery in Whistler and maybe B.C. Purebread opened up a few years ago and it continues to get bigger and better every year. There are two locations in Whistler, one in Function Junction and one in the Village near Olympic Plaza. They have fresh bread, cakes, sweet loaves, savoury pies, cookies, croissants ...... and pretty much everything delicious you can think of. They even have a large and varied selection of vegan and gluten free options so rest assure there is something for everyone. Serving Campos coffee (from Sydney) you can even sit down and enjoy a brew in your new fav spot. I can almost guarantee you won't be disappointed.

You must try the 'Stud Muffin' breakfast sandwich. This has to be one of the most popular cafes (and sandwiches!!) among locals. Starting up in Mount Currie Pemberton, we are so lucky to have Mount Currie Coffee Co. in Whistler now too ! Great coffee, a variety of baked goods and sandwiches, open for breakfast and lunch.

A local's favourite! Arguably the best value sandwiches and wraps in town. Made fresh, right in front of your eyes, you seriously can't beat an Ingrid's freshly made veggie wrap. Try to Superior vegetable burger or the chicken schnitzel, both are to die for! Got people with dietary requirements, no problem! They will cater to you. Want to feel good about supporting a local business? This is definitely your place. It's super small so be prepared to take your food to go, just in case. The patio is great in the Summer but don't expect anything too fancy.

Off the beaten path, this cafe is great for a brew if you're heading out of town. Right on the boarder of the Whistler boundary, Camp is a chic little spot you shouldn't miss.

If your'e looking for a nice night out and some quality fine-dining, then you can't look past Araxi. Araxi has a wonderful selection of fresh food, a long list of local wines as well as an Oyster bar that seems to be very popular among tourists and locals alike. In the fall, they offer a great 3-course special.

A delicious, reliable and non frills spot. Great for family dinners and drinks, 21 steps is a must. My partner and I love it here, you can't go past there goat's cheese balls!

If you like beer, then you have to like Coast Mountain Brewing! I have been recommending this spot since it opened and am yet to receive one negative comment. Tucked away in a discrete, off the beaten path, spot in Function Junction. Great music, great vibe and most importantly, great beer. Just go there!

Super casual, super delicious. Hidden behind the book store, you could hide away here, comfortably, for days if they'd let you. Highly recommend for a cheap, delicious and home cooked lunch.

Putting this one here because I am bias and a self confessed chocoholic. If you're from B.C this one won't be new to you, but if you're from anywhere outside Canada, definitely worth a look.

One of my first, favourite spots to eat breakfast in Whistler Village. If you don't like crepes then maybe this isn't the spot for you as there isn't too much else on the menu but I can assure you, crepe lovers will not be let down. Such a cute and cosy spot to eat a meal.

YUM! Creekbread is located right in Creekside so you don't even have to go far to enjoy some of the World's best pizza. Cooked in a pizza over right in front of you, Creekbread is without a doubt a local fav! Sourced from local, in season ingredients, the taste is always on point and you will not be let down. The space is huge and suited for bigger parties. A great place to take the family.

If you like sushi, sake or both, then you'll love it here. Right at the base of Whistler mountain (and up some stairs) you'll find this hidden gem and you won't be disappointed. Be sure to make a reservation if you're in Whistler during peak season. This place books up fast!

A very low-key but delicious spot right at the base of Creekside gondola. The Ramen is to-die-for and it won't cost you an arm and a leg.

Activities
While Whistler is home to some of the worlds best skiing, snowboarding and mountain biking, there is so much more to do! Check out some of my tried and tested suggestions below.
If you're looking for something a little more relaxing, then you have to try the Scandinave Spa. We love it here and make a point fo going at least 1-2 times a year. Book a massage or just go to enjoy the baths and the view. There is an organic cafe on site so you can purchase food and drinks if you get hungry or, you choose to spend your whole day there (yes, you can stay there ALL DAY LONG). Take a book and some flip-flops and don't forget to hire a bath robe. I cannot say anything bad about this spot. Check out their website for more information.

If you have kids, or like to skateboard, it's worth checking out the Whistler skate park. Find it off the Valley Trail located by Parking Lot 5. Kids and adults flock here in the Summer/Fall.

Heli Skiing is by far one of the best things I have ever done. I cannot recommend it enough! By the base of Whistler mountain, tucked away by the Longhorn Salon, you will find the Whistler Heli Ski booking centre (retail outlet). They have options for all abilities and can help answer any of your questions. Our whole family have invested in this experience at different times and abilities in our lives and we can all agree that it is an unbeatable experience. The guides are so knowledgable and kind, they will show you a great time. The food is supplied by the Bear Foot bistro so expect a 5 star dining experience at the top of the world.

If you're up for a cultural experience then you have to check out the Audain. Located off the Valley Trail right by the bus loop, the Audain is a great 'other' option to going up the mountains. They have a spectacular permanent collection and offer yoga on Thursday nights. Check out their website for local showings.

Thrill seekers looking for a little more spice in their life should check out Whistler Bungee. It's a blast and I recommend!

Walk, bike, run, skate or rollerblade it. The Valley Trail runs through the whole Whistler municipality and takes so many twists and turns you would have to do it multiple times over to see it all. It's stunning and provides a great opportunity to see parts of Whistler that you may otherwise not experience. In the Summer, I recommend biking the Valley Trail from Function Junction to Emerald Estates. It's magical and a provides you with a sight seeing experience different from the norm.
