At Whistler Blackcomb, eating and drinking is just as important as the skiing.
Mountain enthusiasts find themselves fueling up with a wide range of foods between runs. And, according to Whistler Blackcomb’s executive chef Wolfgang Sterr, each restaurant works hard to ensure there’s a dish for everyone.
“We attempt to cater to people with all kinds of dietary restrictions,” says Sterr. “We do what we can to reduce our impact on the environment through initiatives like sourcing local ingredients and participating in the Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise program.”
Check out these top five menu items the next time you venture up to Whistler Blackcomb.
