Off the Snow
Whistler Village is a varied cluster of chalets, apartments and hotels. It is purpose-built but tasteful, with a pedestrianised centre that encompasses every convenience you could need. The colourful variety of apres-ski bars and the vast array of eateries means the only difficulty is choosing where to go.

The village is very lively, but there are rocking bars with live music as well as quiet and cosy snugs; gourmet restaurants (make sure you book in advance) as well as cheap and cheerful cafes - whatever you're looking for, something will fit the bill.
