In the spirit of the month of love, we wanted to share a few of the things we LOVE about Whistler. Our hometown has plenty to offer! We love the variety of restaurants, stores, and activities we can find right here in Whistler. Here at Whistler Day Spa, we wanted to create a list of our go-to spots in town. After some discussion and very close voting, we’ve come up with our list of Whistler Day Spa Staff Favourites!
Our Favorites for Food & Drink
When you visit a new place, the first thing you want to do is check out the cuisine scene! We’ve put together a list of our favourites to help you discover a few local gems. The best part? All of them are easily do-able in a weekend with some pre-planning!
Casual Food: Creekbread
We voted, and our staff favourite for casual food is Creekbread! They have the best fire-roasted flatbread pizza and salads in town, and the laid-back atmosphere is the perfect place to meet up with friends and enjoy the beauty of the mountains.
Fancy Food: Red Door Bistro
If you’re searching for a romantic, upscale setting to share a meal, Red Door Bistro is the place to go. You may need to plan your date night a bit early as bookings fill up well in advance! Enjoy fine dining and an impressive atmosphere with Red Door.
Favourite coffee place – Mount Currie Coffee Co.
When you need a pick-me-up in caffeine form, our go-to is Mount Currie Coffee Co. Not only do they make an incredible latte, but they strive to be as eco-friendly as possible!
Best beer selection – Coast Mountain Brewing
With a combination of new and unique brews as well as historical recipes, Coast Mountain Brewing has the BEST selection of beer in town. They’re so popular, many of the local businesses are carrying their brews!
Our Favourites for Activities
Although during the winter Whistler is known for skiing and snowboarding, our town also has plenty more to offer. We love hitting up the powder, but we’ve also put together a list of our staff-favourites for non-skiing/snowboarding activities.
Outdoor Activity – ZipTrek Eco-Tours
For year-round outdoor activity, we love the zip lining tours through ZipTrek Eco-Tours. With the longest zipline in Canada and the U.S., ZipTrek is one of the top local and global names in the adventure tourism industry.
Indoor Activity – Forged Axe Throwing
After spending an afternoon here bonding as a team, our staff voted Whistler Forged Axe Throwing our favourite indoor activity. Open to all levels of ax-wielders, this is a great way to spend an afternoon with friends!
Best Yoga Centre – Yogacara Whistler
Yogacara gets our vote for best yoga centre! With small group sizes (never more than fifteen people) and numerous classes, Yogacara has everything you need to improve your whole self well-being.
Best Place for Après – Cinnamon Bear Bar
After a day on the slopes, our favourite aprés stop is the Cinnamon Bear Bar. With plenty of drink and food options, the cozy fireplace, pool tables, and TV screens make the Cinnamon Bear Bar the go-to place in Whistler!
The next time you’re in town (or just looking for a way to spend an afternoon), our list of favourites are just a few of the amazing locations here in Whistler. And we don’t want to forget our favorite place for rest, relaxation and pampering: Whistler Day Spa! Our expert staff loves serving our clients, and we’d love to see you in our spa.
