New Years Eve 2013

I have researched the old posts and other than info on the Fairmont Hotel and the snowcat/snowmobile fondue, there isn't any specific info on what is being offered.

We are a family with older teens and would like dinner, maybe some live music, to celebrate the new year. I want to get reservations soon as I am sure things are booking up.

Is there a website to a local magazine or something where all the restaurants & hotels list their holiday activities?

For those who have been there before, I think I read that there are fireworks - what time? where? any other community celebrations/activities we should be aware of?

thanks for any info

You can purchase tickets for this family event. The fire and ice show and fireworks at the base of Whistler are free. http://www.whistler.ca/nye

As for dinner etc. There's no "one" website or document that lists these. It's basically google search.

Here's what I can find so far...

Quattro - www.quattrorestaurants.com/eventDetails.php…

Bear Foot Bistro - bearfootbistro.com/?event=new-years-eve

The Den and Nick North - golfbc.com/courses/…dining

Edgewater Lodge - www.edgewater-lodge.com/whistler-dining.html

Cinnamon Bear Grill in the Hilton Hotel hiltonwhistler.com/dining/cinnamon-bear-gril…

Others that you will have to email directly as it's not on their website yet, Hy's Steakhouse, Araxi, Rimrock Cafe, Side Cut at Four Seasons, Westin usually has something, Aura at Nita Lake Lodge, Il Caminetto di Umberto, La Trattoria di Umberto.

To give you and idea of price Quatto's first seating at 5:00 pm is $80 for a 4 course (childrens menu available). Second seating at 8:00 pm is $185.00 for a 6 course. As with Quattro, the 2nd seating at most restaurants lead into midnight with music, celebrations and possibly dancing (depending on the restaurant)

is there somewhere with karoke or a band that does some older rock covers (Beatles, Eagles,Elton John, Billy Joel, Garth Brooks etc)? we have kids ages 16 & 20 who can sing well and would like karoke but Dad and I like a good cover band, or maybe a sing along piano bar would be good? Don't want to pay a lot, but would like to be able to get a decent dinner and have some fun before going to watch fireworks.

trying to decide if the NYE wristband is worth it or not - will take the list of activities from http://www.whistler.com/christmas/#newyears home and let kids decide if enough they want to do.
