As winter descends again and those first glorious layers of powder cover the mountains of Whistler and Blackcomb, there’s more to look forward to than epic ski slopes and breathtaking mountain vistas.
Whistler’s abundance of excellent dining establishments won’t just feed you – they’ll provide a refuge from the cold and a taste of pure comfort. We couldn’t possibly cover them all here, but read on to learn about a few of our coziest restaurants and their hearty dishes that promise to both fill your belly and warm your soul.
Rimrock Cafe: Fine food and great service in an elegant atmosphere
The Rimrock Cafe is known as Whistler’s go-to for upscale fish and game with an inspired menu full of creative takes on familiar dishes. Come here to treat yourself to an elegant yet rustic ambiance, a wine cellar that’s reason enough to linger, and wait staff known for their attentive and accommodating service.
The Seared Scallops with house cured bacon, apple and leek puree & pickled charred leek are a great starter to awaken the taste buds, and the Beef Tenderloin Tartare is exquisite.
For your main course we recommend the Wild Salmon, or the Roasted Rack of Lamb covered with herb provençal and served with garlic mashed potatoes and a red wine demi. The Grilled Asparagus with Lemon Butter makes an excellent side.
Enjoy the picturesque scenery along with your evening of exceptional service and unforgettable cuisine, and be sure to book your reservation well in advance as you won’t be the only ones coming in from the cold.
IL Caminetto: Sophisticated and elegant Italian classics with a modern touch
The ambiance of this restaurant led by some of the country’s top chefs is as mellowed as a finely aged wine, perfectly reflected in its name, which is Italian for “the fireplace.” Exactly where you want to be to tuck yourself away from the winter chill.
Featuring an expertly curated 4-course menu Sunday through Thursday, as well as a modern alla carte menu that reimagines Italian classics, you’ll be hard pressed to choose because everything at Il Caminetto is superb.
Our personal favorite? The currently featured “Prix Fixe” four course menu.
Start things off with a cicchetti of sicilian olives accompanied by roasted tomatoes, chilies, herbs, and orange zest. Next up, your antipasti. How about the Whistler Harvest Mushroom Risotto? Lavishly garnished with grana padano, chives, porcini, and truffle essence, this dish embodies warmth and comfort.
Now for your secondi. We can’t help but recommend the Tagliatelle Bolognese made with Brant Lake wagyu beef. Pair this dish with a recommendation from Il Caminetto’s wine experts and you’ll be in heaven.
And finally, your dolci: the tiramisu is fantastic, but why not try something new with the Torta Caprese. Hazelnut whipped ganache with candied hazelnuts and spiced chantilly cream?
Wild Blue Restaurant + Bar: Show stopping fine dining
Wild Blue is a relative newcomer to the culinary scene, but that hasn’t stopped it from quickly becoming known as one of the best restaurants in BC led by industry veterans and top chefs. This is elevated Pacific Northwest seafood cuisine at its finest, with a focus on sustainable and local ingredients.
Start things off with oysters harvested from the coastal waters of BC, or the divine caviar with creme fraiche, potato blini and smoked salmon. Choose from a number of mouthwatering appetizers like poached Dungeness crab with louie sauce or an Autumn Carrot Soup with hazelnut chantilly.
Move on to some house-made pasta or indulge in an entree of Pan Roasted Ling Cod or the to-die-for Sablefish with turnip, radish, maitake mushroom, sesame, and roasted fish bone sauce. For dessert, we recommend the Toffee Pudding with candied walnut, dates, almond streusel, salted caramel ice cream, and toffee sauce.
Keep a glass of champagne at your side and enjoy the culinary mastery at Wild Blue.
Luxury In Whistler Accommodation and Itineraries
With options ranging from romantic and sophisticated to casual and family friendly, featuring establishments that emphasize local products and farm-to-table quality, and with every culinary region of the world represented here in Whistler, there’s truly something for everyone.
So replace the chill of the outdoors with the warmth of good company, great food, and the flickering allure of the open fire–and get in touch with Luxury In Whistler to plan your exploration of Whistler’s winter culinary delights.
From ice skating to bungee jumping, Whistler Blackcomb has activities for everyone. And whatever you choose during your stay, you’re guaranteed to leave with priceless memories and stories. Now let’s explore some of the family-friendly winter activities you can plan for this season.
It’s more strenuous than hiking, but slower paced and more relaxed than skiing or snowboarding. Snowshoeing is a great activity for the whole family to slow down and fully absorb the majesty of the alpine beauty around you. Among the places you can snowshoe are Lost Lake Park, Rainbow Mountain, or the Whistler Olympic Park.
Family Ski Day
There are plenty of green and blue trails on both mountains–just the right combination of ease and exhilaration. Legend has it there’s a secret tree fort on Whistler and an enchanted castle on Blackcomb. You’ll just have to find them first…
Activities for Teenagers
Sometimes teens like to get away from Mom and Dad for a few hours, don’t they? One way to affirm their burgeoning independence is to put them into snow school, where teens aged 13-18 receive ski and snowboard lessons in all skill levels.
It’s a great way to meet other kids their age, learn new skills, forge lasting friendships, and explore both mountains with an experienced coach.
If you’re feeling more adventurous, consider an afternoon of high wire ziplining.
Yes–you can ride a zipline across the valley from one mountain to the next, soaring above the snow capped trees and screaming like a maniac. If you’re especially daring you can try “Superfly,” a zipline spanning more than a kilometer from 200 meters in the air.
There’s nothing quite like it, and if you can convince Grandpa to give it a shot you’ll be the family hero.
A classic Canadian pastime, and there’s a great variety of skating in Whistler. You can skate outdoors at Whistler Olympic Plaza with views of the mountains, or venture further afield and lace up for a skate on one of the local lakes.
If you do skate on lake ice, be sure you understand the risks and can assess the conditions for safety. You want to have at least 6 inches of ice thickness, and preferably several days of cold weather (below -10° C / 14° F) before getting on the ice.
Avoid any signs of open water or slushy conditions. In fact, it’s a good idea to stay close to shore where the water is shallower. Also, never skate alone, stay in groups, and keep a close eye on everyone!
And if indoor skating is more your style, head over to the NHL-size rink at Meadow Park Sports Center where equipment is available for rent at the full service skate shop.
Snow Tubing & Tobogganing
What more really needs to be said? Go flying down a snowy hill at top speed in a snow tube, come to rest at the bottom of the hill, then take a special conveyor belt back to the top and do it all over again.
This is how you can pass your time at the Bubly Tube Park, or you can head over to the Whistler Olympic Park for some good old fashioned tobogganing.
PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola
Aside from a private helicopter ride, this is your best bet for incredible panoramic views. If you start at the Whistler Village Gondola, then take the PEAK 2 PEAK all the way up Whistler Mountain and then down Blackcomb Mountain, you’ll enjoy a continuous 13.5 KM loop with a bird’s eye view of the mountains, glaciers, and forests. There’s even a glass-bottomed gondola along the way to take your sightseeing to the next level.
Whistler Olympic Park
One of the most popular places for winter adventurers. Here you’ll find all kinds of gear for rent, a massive area to explore, a day lodge with cafe, and dog-friendly ski and snowshoe trails. This wintery paradise has cross country skiing, snowshoeing, tobogganing, and even biathlon (that cool sport combining cross-country skiing and rifle marksmanship).
Vallea Lumina is a multimedia night walk that immerses you in glimmering light shows in the forested trails of Cougar Mountain. A perfect activity for all ages, groups, and families. And children aged 5 and under get free admission.
“But Wait–There’s More”
We couldn’t possibly cover all the available activities in this short article! There’s so much to do here in Whistler Blackcomb that if you come here and you’re bored, you’re doing something wrong!

For the food and drink lovers, Whistler’s annual fall festival, Cornucopia, is a must. Dive into food and drink tastings, culinary demonstrations, drink seminars, winemaker dinners, and more.

Contact Luxury In Whistler to book your accommodations early and have these exciting events marked on your calendar.
As opening day approaches and we all start dusting off our ski, snowboard, and winter adventure gear, let’s take a look at some of the facts about Whistler’s snowfall and winter weather to help you prepare for the coming season.
Whistler Blackcomb Climate Facts
Whistler and Blackcomb are located in the Coast Mountain Range, given that name due to their proximity to the Pacific coast. Being so close to the ocean means Whistler Blackcomb is blessed with moderate winter weather. Temperatures here don’t typically go lower than -10°C (12°F) in the valley and -15°C (5°F) in the alpine during the coldest part of the year.
Average Alpine Temperatures for Whistler Blackcomb
December to February
Low: -12°C / 11°F
High: -5°C / 23°F
March to May
Low: -8°C / 19°F
High: 5°C / 42°F
465 inches / 38.7 ft / 11.8 m per year on summit
Of course, that doesn’t mean it can’t get considerably colder than that, so always prepare accordingly with layers that can be added or subtracted to keep you cozy and well-ventilated on the slopes or on the streets of the village.
Whistler Blackcomb consistently offers some of the most reliable snow conditions in the Coast Mountain Range, receiving an average annual snowfall of around 11 meters, and 86 annual snowfall days.
It’s no secret that Whistler is legendary for its powder–but check out the chart below showing a variety of stats that might help you plan your trip around when you’re most likely to get the best conditions for shredding the slopes.
In spite of its proximity to the coast, Whistler’s snow is known for being fluffy, light, and as you can see from the chart above, plentiful. Snow on these mountains is generally dry and ready to be carved up for your board or skis.
So–itching for opening day, yet?
Dress For The Alpine Weather
There are a few main factors to consider when it comes to your winter weather gear. Ideally you want to hit that Goldilocks zone where you’re neither too hot or too cold–just right.
This means having breathable materials that allow for ventilation and wicking away the moisture from your body. But you also want to have a shell that protects you from the wind if it’s a particularly cold day.
Staying warm but not too warm is all about layers that you can add or remove as needed. And it’s always a good idea to invest in certain high quality items, especially socks and gloves.
Making sure you’re properly dressed can mean the difference between a great day or a miserable day, so plan carefully and pack accordingly!
Get Your Gear Ready
If you don’t have gear or aren’t sure where to get it, here are a few options to get your gear ready:
Whistler Winter Wear: They deliver right to your door and you can try on multiple sizes until you have exactly the right fit. They cover clothing, skis, and snowboards.
Whistler Sport Legacies: Located at the Whistler Olympic Park, they have you covered for your snowshoes and skis, and offer both daily and full-season rentals.
Black Tie Ski Rental: They have skis (cross country and alpine), boards, boots, and locations on both mountains, and free delivery with custom fitting.
Best Times to Visit Whistler During Winter Season
For maximum excitement, consider coming for your trip in November and December. With activity on the mountains ramping up there can be quiet days with short lift lines and even cheaper accommodations, but this is an exciting time when Whistler is packed with events and holiday activities. So keep that in mind when you plan your trip!
With events like Wintersphere and The Fire and Ice Show, and a whole lot more, any time through November and December will be a memorable experience filled with excitement for you and your family.
For powderhounds, January and February bring some of the coldest temperatures and the driest, fluffiest snow of the winter season. Likewise, there’s a slight drop-off in visitors, so you’re likely to have somewhat shorter wait times for the lift and fewer people on the mountain.
The Village is generally quieter during this time as well–except during spring break–so getting that reservation at your favorite restaurant should be easier too.
For many people the countdown has already started and the date is marked on every calendar they own–November 23, 2023 is the opening day for the 23/24 season at Whistler Blackcomb.
One exciting announcement for those itching to get on the slopes this year is that Whistler-Blackcomb’s Fitzsimmons Express chairlift is being replaced this year with a high speed 8-person lift, which will reduce wait times and get you up the mountain faster.

The Crankworx announced the upcoming Crankworx World Tour 2022 in February this year. The Crankworx World Tour is a sequence of mountain bike festivals.
Crankworx brings together top mountain bikers for an elite-level competition in various disciplines. The festival began in 2004 in Whistler and has since expanded into one of the most significant mountain-biking events.
Crankworx has built a reputation as the definitive experience in mountain bike competitions. The MTB pros get to ride with the best in each discipline, and an amateur can ride the same tracks with the best of the best.
The World Tour festival also has amateur races, a CWNEXT athlete category, Kidsworkx for younger riders, and a celebration of the mountain biking culture while exhibiting scenic destinations. The CWNEXT includes categories for both genders, aged 13 to 14, 15 to 16, and 17 to 18. This category runs alongside the adult Crankworx events.
This year’s festival has four stops, returning to its iconic origin-Whistler, Canada. The pandemic meant that the event could not take place for two years. The regular Rotorua and Innsbruck locations are on the calendar, with the fourth stop at a site Crankworx is yet to reveal.
When and Where Will the 2022 Stop?
June 15th-19th 2022 – Crankworx Innsbruck, Austria
Innsbruck is home to Robin Goome, who performed the first-ever backflip, and Kaos Seagraves whip. This is the only European stop on the Crankworx and includes the FMBA Slopestyle World Championship and the King and Queen of Crankworx. Innsbruck has an eclectic mix of city and urban vibes, and it’s an excellent location to gather the top names in mountain biking.
August 5th-14th 2022- Crankworx Whistler, Canada
In 2019, Whistler hosted the largest race in the Enduro World Series with 675 riders. Since then, Emil Johansson got his first gold in Slopestyle at the Red Bull Joyride and has since won every Crankworx competition.
October 5th-9th- Crankworx (To-be-announced)
Crankworx will announce this location soon, but it will be an exciting location.
November 5th-13th- Crankworx Rotorua
Rotorua in 2021 was where Billy Meaclem made a comeback to the Crankworx competition. Jenna Hastings had her first international pro-W, and Emil Johansson won the Triple Slopestyle Crown. In one year, the rider must win three Lopestyle events in the same year to deserve the crown. The winner of the crown takes home $25,000.
We look forward to an even more significant event this year. This tour will be Crankworx Rotorua’s 8th year and the festival’s final stop. The crowning of the Crankworx King and Queen also happens here, and they get the Tewhatewha (a Maorian ceremonial weapon with a long handle). Redbull TV will air the event live at the locations.
The Mountain Bike Event at a Crankworx World Tour Stop
The events differ as per the location, but there will be pro competitions in:
- Speed & Style
- Pumptrack Challenge
- Dual Slalom
- Whip off
For winning and podiuming events, winners get prize money. To encourage participation from pro-athletes across all the stops and disciplines, Crankworx has a King and Queen Competition each year. The King and Queen race is the most challenging competition in mountain biking and tests the riders’ skill and strong will.
The riders that earn the most points in the entire tour take home a CAD 20,000 cheque and get the King and Queen title. The second-place riders (male and female) get CAD 10,000, and the third-place rider gets CAD 5,000.
While attending the Crankworx competition, you need a place to go back to after a long day at the tracks. Whether riding or spectating, Aloha Whistler offers you the perfect place to call home for the first few days of the competition.
In the SKI magazine’s 26th annual survey, 20000+ readers voted The Whistler Blackcomb as the number one Ski Resort in North America. Contact us to book now to avoid any inconveniences during the Crankworx upcoming competition
