Winter days in Whistler

02.22.16

 

Over the past year you may have heard from me recounting our visits to beautiful Whistler.

During our school’s winter break, we drove up to British Columbia to enjoy a handful of days being close to the snow and the mountains – a paradise on earth.

Living in the Pacific Northwest and so close to Canada, it is easy for us to make the trip and enjoy a change of pace.

In contrast with last year’s dry conditions, this winter, the snow is abundant, pure and powdery.

Despite of how busy our lives get, just a few days in these mountains makes us feel alive. The perfect family retreat no matter your children’s ages. It is a place where everyone feels connected.

Coupled with its natural beauty, there is the chance to mingle with people of many geographies and languages. Equally important for us is its cuisine, fed by the rich valley (Pemberton Valley) farms and coastal fishery that supply the bounty of produce, crowning Whistler as an unpretentious and rich gastronomic destination for many.

Our days in Whistler have been capped off by enjoying the local restaurants in Whistler Village and Creekside. Always interested in learning from their local chefs’ visions and what their seasonal menus highlight every time.

I will be back to share with you a recipe I am working on. It’s from a cookbook from one of Whistler’s most celebrated restaurants, Araxi.

Be back soon.

  1. Sono dei luoghi magici, la montagna affatica ma rilassa, i colori non colori di queste tue foto sono splendide, sembra di godere in uno stato di perfetta serenità, specie se con tutta la famiglia.
    Grazie di aver condiviso con noi questi tuoi momenti.
