36 Hours in Whistler — New York Times Review
Whistler — Grown Up
A new review of our resort in the New York Times confirms what we already know: "With apologies to Aspen, Whistler-Blackcomb in British Columbia really is North America’s most cosmopolitan ski resort."
The video accompanying the article pays tribute to some of the places and things to do here that are on our list of favourites: Scandinavae Spa, for example. It also highlights the international diversity here: the range of food options, for example. Whistler quite certainly has the best Mexican restaurant in Canada, and it definitely has the best Australian meat pies.
Authentic International Experiences
But what is clear in this latest review of the number one resort in North America, however, is that Whistler has grown up: It's not simply a large resort with the best of everything. It's cosmopolitan.
Real Mexican Food
Our Mexican restaurant, the Mexican Corner, is not, as the NYT feared "watered down Tex-Mex" — it's authentic and inspired Mexican food. A rarity, again as the NYT mentions, north of Salt Lake City, and certainly rare in Canada. But we've got it. And so much more, too.
Our Scandinave Spa is an authentic Scandinavian experience. Visitors and residents alike rave about this place, which allows no talking during your experience.
Australian Regional Cuisine
And the meat pies. Whistler is home to many Australians, and they bring their culture with them. The result is that Australia's national holiday is celebrated proudly in Whistler, and, of course, you can get real authentic Australian meat pies here. With a Whistler twist, of course.
What comes through, though, when walking in Whistler Village, is that you are among a group of very cosmopolitan people. You hear languages ranging from Polish to Japanese to Italian.
This latest review of our village is a great reminder of why we love it here. And why you will, too.
