Starting the day early is the best idea to enjoy some of the best ski slopes in the world that you can find at Whistler.
When the sun sets the best is to go somewhere by the slopes to recharge and unwind. Eat something warm and dance while it gets dark in a place where the music sounds loud. No doubt that the best about a ski day are the après-ski activities. Just at the end of the slopes there is The Longhorn where you'll have the best of times dancing until they close. Note: the DJ is great! :)
To stay I always recommend a classic hotel: The Fairmont Chateau Whistler, mountain luxury in a cozy environment. Note: at Christmas it is gorgeously decorated.
To dine there is an extensive offer of restaurants, but a good and authentic fondue is the perfect choice. You can enjoy it by the fireplace at Le Chalet at The Fairmont Hotel. The best one? The chocolate fondue...save some space for dessert. It is worth it!
On a day that you don't feel like skiing you can enjoy shopping at the stores in the town. You can find all types of specialized ski stores and fashion stores as well.
If you are driving I recommend visiting one of the beautiful lakes around downtown Whistler like Lakeside Park. Make sure to bring your camera. It is gorgeous!
WARM AND COOL
The perfect Cuckoo B accessory for Whistler is the Ada scarf. I love the super fun pattern, it is very versatile and very very warm.
