Weekend Shares 6: Whistler Edition

I took a short trip to Whistler last week to do some skiing. I’m currently in Vancouver visiting family so it was just a couple of hours drive up. We had a lot of fun especially since we got to meet up with some London friends who were also there!

Whistler Blackcomb – We spent one day on Whistler and one day on Blackcomb, both had a good number of blue runs with lots of fresh powder.  You can save quite a bit of money buying lift passes in advance (even though we didn’t doh!) or if you get an Edge card (for BC and WA residents).

Delta Whistler Village Suites – We stayed in a one bedroom suite; loved the fireplace and outdoor hot tubs. The full-sized kitchen was useful but we had problems with the stove/oven. You can rent equipment from within the same building and it’s about a 7 minute walk to the lifts.

Whistler Grocery Store – Right in the village, not cheap but so very convenient. We picked up food for breakfast here.

Splitz Grill – Choose your own burger and toppings,very tasty and very filling. I had the legendary splitz burger.

21 Steps Kitchen & Bar – Great atmosphere and food. We forewent starters to save room for dessert, the peanut butter pie was scrumptious!
