Question Whistler Favorites???

Just wanted to know if anyone has some good suggestions on where to head at the end of March... been looking forward to this trip with 4 buddies who all are avid boarders(one skier) been pining for a long awaiting vacation.

Personally, I am hoping for good snow to do glade runs, and finding some good fun bars after the day has choked down.

Any suggestions on whatever would be the chit...

Trails for the glade guy?
Best Seafood or Steak for veggin'?
Favorite Pub for my irish friend?
Best Lodge for the skier?
Cheap HH/apres bars for me?

All I really care about is getting some Whistler pow nonetheless, but if any of you could steer us into some fun, I'd appreciate it...

Symphony and Harmony back bowls are awesome as is the Blackcomb glacier.
I thoroughly enjoyed the gladed runs on 7th heaven as well.
Can't really comment on restaurants and pubs as we pretty much only ate canned food and went clubbing when we were there haha.

Ill answer 2, 3 and 4.
2.)Hys
3.) Dublins Gate (although I find the music recently to be to laud and annoying). They are the only ones to serve a descent Guiness.
4.) Fairmont or Four Seasons

Buffalo Bills on a wednesday is pretty crazy.
If you want to go clubbing Tommy Africas is a good choice most nights, but if thats your thing go to Moe Joes on a sunday, Its probably the best nights out I've had in all of America and Canada, absolutely crazy.

Best glades: About a billion amazing tree runs, but one of the commonly known ones is the trees under Crystal Chair and the trees towards the bottom of 7th heaven.

If you find a local on a powder day, get them to take you to million dollar trees. Always deep and amazing in there, but it's not really somewhere you should go if you don't know the area and don't have someone to guide you.

Best steak:
Hy's

- Also recommend checking out Sushi Village (it's not just sushi). One of the local favourites for good food. They have amazing strawberry sake margheritas, along with sushi (recommend the Super Hiro Roll), japanese teriyaki steak and other delicious food.

Best burger: Definitely check out Splitz Burger while you're in town. Easily one of the best burgers I've ever had anywhere.

Best irish pub: Dublin Gate

- also recommend checking out Merlin's Pub & Grill at base of Blackcomb on a Friday evening. Local band plays and they're amazing and always a fun time.

- every night in town has a designated club of the night so you can always ask on the day which club is the popular one that night.

Best budget food: El Furniture Warehouse. All food on their menu is $4.95 and their drinks aren't unreasonably priced either.

- Also check out Fat Tony's pizza behind Zog Dog and next to Showcase Snowboards. $2 slices are a very cheap lunch vs. mountain food.

I will find those million $ trees... Thanks for the great info on everything, budgeted food as well, that will come in handy!!

(These replies are awesome, I will definitely hit up Dublin Gate, and see if we can peep Moe Joes on a Sunday and do Merlin's 100%!!!)


Praying for pow pow pow!!

there are a lot of threads on whistler

7th heaven on a sunny afternoon is just that. catch the last chair, likely around 3 pm this time of year, have a beer at the Horstmann hut, let the crowds drain off the hill, and then have a nice undisturbed ride out.

If you're really committed to getting to fresh snow you should do the first tracks breakfast, things get skied out very quickly.

Going to Whistler for the first time soon myself
I've been searching on their site and the best deal seems to be getting the edge card basically tickets are $83 instead of $99 roughly and you get discounts on other stuff too (like snowbus)

I think for same day return epic rides seems cheapest $35 round trip?

There might be better packages though if you're staying like a week.
like hotel package with tickets or something?

ending with 7th Heaven sounds amazing! Totally got to do that
