Christmas Brunch/Lunch 2011

I was hoping to enjoy Christmas Brunch with my family at the Fairmont Whistler but am informed that Christmas Day brunch is only for in-house guests this year. Can anyone give me other suggestions of somewhere a bit special our adult family can go for Brunch on Christmas day this year. We are staying near the Marketplace, but have no car, so it either has to be on the bus route, or easily accessed by foot. (Or how much are taxis on Christmas day?) Let me know some idea of the prices too, if you can. Thanks...

Hi CarolynHa,

Since no one else has responded yet, just thought I'd suggest contacting Tourism Whistler as they would most likely have a good idea.

I spoke to someone at the Fairmont and she suggests that they may open up to the public depending on how busy. They're also saving some space for walk in's the day of, so you can always try your luck later. Many of the larger resaurants are closed Christmas day. You may find a few casual cafe's opened. You can always try other hotel restaurants, such as the Westin, Hilton, Four Seasons, Edgewater Lodge and Nita Lake Lodge (last two require a 10 min. taxi ride). Or you an always have the Fresh Tracks breakfast in the Roundhouse Lodge on Whistler Mountain. You'll need to buy a Fresh Tracks Ticket as well as a lift pass (either ski or sightseeing pass) and the breakfast is 7 am in the morning, so not necessarily brunch.
