Herewith, our spring Whistler itinerary (part 1 of 2).
The new Hilton (formerly the Delta) still houses the happening Cinnamon
Bear Bar and Grille but has upgraded its rooms and lobby and added
treats like free doggy amenity kits. Other bonuses include wood burning
fireplaces, kitchenettes, good coffee, free ski valet and a prime
location 22 steps to the gondola. Check out special rates until April 30
(stay 3 nights and Monday night is just one penny) at www.hiltonwhistler.com
The new Mountain Club is the hit of the season with sophisticated food
(try the Cortes Island oysters, venison carpaccio, and line-caught ling
cod) at approachable prices. The stylish crowd (lots of Europeans)
seated among black-and-white photography is more than approachable, too.
Feel like cocktailing? Make like Victoria Beckham and order the Soccer
Mom. View menus at www.themountainclub.ca
Mingle with Whistler royalty at the Four
Seasons Hotel’s weekend après at the Fifty Two 80 Bistro. Couture
cocktails are just $5, parking is free, and so is your first appie.
