Whistler Blackcomb

Sixteen huge, snow-fattened bowls scallop across majestic twin peaks. Punctuated with glaciers, the expanse feels like the Alps—with consistently great service (No. 5), seamless connectivity (Lifts, No. 2, including the bold Peak 2 Peak gondola), and a lifetime of choose-your-adventure skiing (Terrain Variety, No. 1; Challenge, No. 7). Whistler Blackcomb is back at the top of the rankings (it was No. 1 in 2012–13), and readers are giddy. “Nothing else in North America compares.” “The mountain is an 11- plus... Just more in every way.” The slopes descend a whopping vertical mile through lush spruce forests (and frequent dreaded mid-mountain fog) to a dynamic ski-tropolis as abundant and diverse as the mountains above. —Susan Reifer Ryan

Citta's Bistro

Citta's Bistro
citta bistro
A great place to catch up with the Whistler locals over a plate of apres-ski nachos.

This locally-owned bar has been a go-to spot for après deals for over 25 years. There are daily food and drink specials, which could be why the bistro is consistently voted “best local hangout” and “best patio” in the local Whistler paper each year. When you hit Citta for après deals try the nachos or the chicken wings. They’re open from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. every day.

Pan Pacific

A new all-suite hotel in the village.

With its nightlife, dining and two excellent mountains, Whistler satisfies most ski-honeymoon requisites.

Book a room on floor eight or nine, where you’ll be assured a mountain view.

Garibaldi Lift Company

How can you go wrong in a place where Kiefer Sutherland once joined Aussie rockers the Waifs onstage for a round of "Mustang Sally"? Besides, even if the former Lost Boy doesn't show, the drinks are always strong and the botties always shaking. whistlerblackcomb.com.

Try the sex cheese, seriously.

In the middle of the action at the base of Whistler, Garibaldi is a three-ring circus of suds, skiers, and “sex cheese.” Yes, the variation on cheese fondue is a must-try while enjoying a margarita on GLC’s huge three-sided patio.

The sushi in Whistler is so superb, we had to include two restaurants from there. Go to Sushi Village if you want fun and festive; go to Sachi, also located in the Whistler village, if you want a more mellow scene. At Sachi, try the mango roll. You won't be disappointed.

Located steps from the Whistler gondola, Sushi Village is the place to eat sushi in Whistler. It's a vibrant party scene with some of the best and freshest fish around.
