Christmas in Whistler

Christmas in Whistler

While a white Christmas can’t be guaranteed everywhere, you can be almost certain of snow on the big day in Whistler, BC. This Canadian winter wonderland boasts Christmas card scenes as standard as well as some of the best ski and snowboard opportunities in the world. Aside from snow sports, Whistler has lots to offer families and groups seeking a festive getaway. We take a look at the best events and activities to enjoy in Whistler this Christmas.

 

Dress like Santa and head for the slopes…(December 16th)

What better way to bring Christmas to the slopes than with the traditional Dress Like Santa Day?! The first 100 people to arrive at the Garibaldi Lift Company dressed in full Santa or Mrs. Claus attire traditionally enjoy a free lift ticket too. Upload starts at 8.00am so get down there early donning your finest Claus costume!

 

Sing carols at the 35th Christmas Eve Carol Service (December 24th)

The 35th annual Christmas Eve Carol Service will take place at the Westin Resort & Spa, hosted by the Whistler Children’s Chorus and Whistler Singers. Traditional carols, choral music and readings by community members are sure to get you in the mood.

 

New Years crowd in skiers plaza

See the Christmas lights…

Stroll through the village to check out over 280,000 lights and decorations. Don’t forget to take plenty of photographs to brighten up that social media feed.

 

Get competitive and learn to axe throw!

Forget the board games this Christmas and give axe throwing a go instead. This quintessentially Canadian pastime sees participants throw axes at a target with the hope of hitting a bullseye. What better way to test your aim and fire up the competitive spirit? Forged Axe Throwing has all you need to get started and will provide all the training and guidance you need.

 

 

Enjoy an indulgent Christmas feast…

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a hearty dinner on the big day. Whether you opt for a traditional roast turkey dinner or feel like mixing it up, there’s an abundance of dining options from which to choose. For a classic roast, Hunter Gather offers three serving times on the big day, while Araxi21 Steps and Basalt are also great choices for a turkey meal with all the trimmings.

 

Go ice skating…

Head to Olympic Plaza to enjoy everyone’s favourite winter activity. Once the skates are off, grab a hot chocolate and soak up the atmosphere.

 

Fire and Ice Show every Sunday at the base of Whistler

Watch the Fire & Ice Show…

Take the family to Skier’s Plaza every Sunday night to witness a spectacular display of ski and snowboard skills as part of the legendary Fire & Ice Show.

 

Ring in 2019…

Spend New Year’s Eve in Whistler and ring in 2019 in style. While there are plenty of pubs and bars for those looking to party the night away, the strolls and plazas cater for families with over six hours of entertainment, music, crafts, games, and a Fire & Ice Show.

The other night I attended a “When Poultry Meets Wine” popup dinner at Edible Canada with Fraser Valley Specialty Poultry. The action-packed evening was filled with delicious eats featuring different poultry products, wine pairings from Ripples Estate Winery and a culinary demonstration by Chef Tobias on how to cook the perfect tender juicy chicken!

To begin the evening, Sommelier Ashley West introduced us on new wine pairings and how to pair wines with poultry. For example, always match your food intensity with wine intensity. And choose a wine that has stronger acidity than your dish.

 

Pro Tip: Regional Pairing – featuring wine and food that complements each other geographically. For example: Loire Valley, France goat cheese and Sauvignon blanc with high acidity.

Amuse Bouche

  • Crispy Duck Hearts: garam masala honey and ginger aioli.
  • Duck Liver Pate: truffle, stone fruit compote with sourdough.

Wine Pairing: Radiance – Sparkling Blueberry Wine: sweet & refreshing flavour

 

 

Fraser Valley Specialty Poultry Edible Canada nomss.com food blog

Chef Tobias demonstrated how he prepares a butter poached free range chicken breast with a golden beets salad.

 

Pro Tip: Always cook chicken in low heat – 250F for 25 to 30 mins. The result will be buttery, tender and juicy! Never ever cook with high heat where you char the skin. The result will be dry, burnt chicken.

Fraser Valley Smoked Duck Salad: A perfect half boiled ajitama duck egg with endive, apple, pistachio, chervil and julienne Pekin smoked duck.

 

Wine Pairing: Cheam – a lovely blend of Gewürztraminer, Ehrenfelser, Chardonnay and Muscat sourced from the Okanagan. It is loaded with fragrant fresh flowers and ripe stone fruit, this medium bodied wine is a perfect table wine for any occasion.

Grilled Squab: Chermoula, buckwheat honey, white bean croquette and parsley. The meat is widely described as “tasting like dark chicken meat”. It is tender, juicy and hard to resist when cooked perfectly.

 

Wine Pairing: In·tem·per·ance– This rich deep dark colour fruit table wine bursts with intense flavours of blueberries. It has a high quantity of antioxidant and rich content of tannins.

 

Pro Tip: The “peanut butter” mouthfeel of rich tannins helps to cut fat from the food.

Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon Introduces “Home for Dinner” Community Fundraising Initiative

Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon Introduces “Home for Dinner” Community Fundraising Initiative

Ronald McDonald House HOME FOR DINNER Nomss.come Food Blog
“HOME FOR DINNER” FUNDRAISING INITIATIVE SUPPORTS CHILDREN AND FAMILIES OF RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE BC & YUKON
Host a dinner for your loved ones and give back to families whose children require life-saving medical attention

 

 

 

Ronald McDonald House HOME FOR DINNER Nomss.come Food Blog
Nothing brings families together like a nourishing, home-cooked meal – and that’s why Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon is launching “Home for Dinner” in support of families whose time, energy and funds are being channeled towards life-saving medical treatment for their children. Every donation supports families who must relocate to Vancouver for their child’s medical treatment, giving them a home away from home and the chance to enjoy precious everyday moments like sharing a family meal.

 

 

 

Ronald McDonald House HOME FOR DINNER Nomss.come Food Blog
Home for Dinner is a community fundraising initiative, which encourages locals to embrace the tradition of connecting with family around the dinner table by hosting a dining event in their home, or at their favourite restaurant. Hosts who cook a meal can suggest guests forego bringing wine or hostess gifts, and instead contribute a donation. Those who choose to implement “Home for Dinner” at a restaurant can treat their nearest and dearest to a decadent meal and request guests donate funds as a thank-you for their generosity. All funds raised will go towards families staying at Ronald McDonald House in Vancouver, ensuring they benefit from a supportive and healing environment while their child or children undergo life-saving medical treatments.  

 

 

 

Ronald McDonald House HOME FOR DINNER Nomss.come Food Blog
Hosting a dining event is not only an accessible way to give back to the community, but also offers the perfect opportunity for family and friends to make time for togetherness in support of a good cause. Those interested in taking part can simply sign up as hosts on the Home for Dinner website; invite their favourite people to participate as guests or co-hosts; and host the meal either at home or at a restaurant, collecting donations from their guests. 

 

 

 

“There is such comfort in sharing a meal with loved ones at the end of the day,” says Richard Pass, CEO of Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon. “Families staying at the House are focused on ensuring their children receive crucial medical treatment, and often do not have the resources to engage in this powerful tradition. By hosting a Home for Dinner event, the community can come together to give back and make a difference in a way that is both simple and meaningful. Next time you’re planning a meal, sign up to be a Home for Dinner host – it’s an extra step that can make a world of difference in a family’s life.”

 

Ronald McDonald House HOME FOR DINNER Nomss.come Food Blog

Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon is owned and operated by the Children’s Family House Society of BC. The organization runs a 73-bedroom property on the grounds of BC Children’s Hospital that provides accommodation, compassion and a sense of community for 2,000 families each year who must travel to Vancouver for their children’s medical treatments. The house offers spacious suites and services for kids of all ages that include a fitness area, arts and crafts studio, LEGO lounge, magic room and several indoor and outdoor gathering spaces.

Mission Hill Winery Estate located heart of British Columbia’s breathtaking Okanagan Valley wine country is must for anyone visiting Kelowna for the first time. This trip was one that I will always remember and hold dear to my heart. The breathtaking scenery provides a great place for you to take refuge from the busyness of daily life and escape for while with a delicious glass (or bottle, we don’t judge) of wine. We came here on our second day of our Summerland road trip. After travelling from Vancouver and pre-drinking before at Sumac Ridge Estate Winery, we didn’t want to leave this beautiful place. We made sure we made dinner reservations at the Mission Hill Terrace Restaurant for dinner later that evening.

After all the wine tasting and touring I was ready to spend my $5 voucher and indulge on flights. 3 for $10 or any single for $4. If you purchase two bottles from the selected list, you can enjoy one tasting also. I really enjoyed their 06 SLC Chard and their SLC Syrah.

It is VERY IMPORTANT to keep the cheese and crackers you purchase close to you. There are many guests whom thinks it is free and communal and start reaching into your purchased food. Most are probably already intoxicated from the wine tour and wine tasting where common sense and mannerism is throw out the door.

And after all that wine drinking you can join us at the Mission Hill Terrace Restaurant to indulge in some seafood and steak.
