Another Whistler Summer

 It's amazing how quickly the summer in Whistler can come and go.  Maybe it's the bounty of available activities in this beautiful resort town that sees the days slip by.  Whether you're enjoying the fabulous Whistler restaurants, braving the downhill bike park, hiking the endless trails or sun soaking along side Rainbow parks beach volleyball courts, there is truly something for everyone.

And while fall brings that odd dreary feeling that preceded another school year as a child; we should remind ourselves that this is Whistler.  Which means that we are only about 8 weeks away from carving up those two beautiful mountains called Whistler and Blackcomb that are conveniently linked by the world record breaking Peak2Peak gondola.

This is the time to start planning.  If you need ski or snowboard gear make sure to hit up the legendary Turkey Sale at the base of Blackcomb over thanksgiving weekend.  The deals are outrageous and so are the crowds so get there early!

As the Whistler Tasting Tours team and I start looking ahead to the winter, we would like to thank all of the wonderful guests that we hosted over the past season.  It has been our best yet!  We also could not do what we do without the collaboration of our wonderful Whistler restaurant partners.  A huge thanks to our friends at (in order of occurrence on our tours): The Bearfoot Bistro, Hy's Steakhouse, Quattro Whistler, Rogers Chocolates, The Mix Lounge, The Firerock Lounge, The Brewhouse, Elements Urban Tapas Parlour, Bavaria Restaurant, Kypriaki Norte, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, The Dubh Linn Gate Gone Bakery.

To another season come and gone and to a record breaking snowy season ahead
