Whistler Ideas

I have a friend coming from the States and really wants to see/experience Whistler! I have to admit, I have not spent much time there and I don't know what little 'gems' I can show her. We arrive Friday night (Sept 12) and will need to leave the following Saturday evening/night. Not much time, I know... I know about the Peak to Peak Gondola as well as just browsing the Village but if there is anything kind of cool or special we can do without breaking the bank, any suggestions would be really appreciated.

Also, any restaurant faves - again, without breaking the bank?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Marie here at Tourism Whistler

The Whistler Village Beer Festival is taking place from Sept 11-14. It's a great event if that type of thing is of interest to you!

Other ideas:

- Rent a bike and explore the Valley Trail

- A Friday evening stroll to Lost Lake to watch the sunset

- Squamish Lil'Wat Cultural Centre

Restaurant ideas (all moderate price range)

- Mallard Lounge at Fairmont Chateau Whistler for "Fairmont Fridays" - $5 Beer, cocktail or wine, free appies (5:30-6:30), live music and a $5 food special

- Splitz Grill for burgers

- Creekbread for pizza

- El Furniture Warehouse (all meals $4.95)

- Pasta Lupino

- Caramba

The suggestions from Marie are spot on especially the Mallard Lounge. Lost Lake is great and would look at the River of golden dreams for a canoe trip.
