Après the Whistler Way
Après-ski typically marks the end of an epic day of skiing or snowboarding, but in Whistler it's a way to catch up with friends and family and share stories from your day any season of the year. You can raise a glass after sledding in the backcountry, a serious shopping spree in the village, a long bike ride or a relaxing day at the spa —any afternoon counts as après time.

The Famous Four
The Garibaldi Lift Company
Located slopeside, right at the base of Whistler Mountain in the Village, the GLC has a large, heated outdoor patio that's perfect for people-watching. In the summertime, watch the downhill bikers hit the GLC Drop in the Whistler Mountain Bike Park. View in Google Maps
The Longhorn Saloon
A Whistler institution for more than 25 years, the Longhorn sits right at the base of Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains in the Village (right across from the GLC). The atmosphere is casual with a mix of locals and visitors; lots of storytelling happens on the sun-filled patio. View in Google Maps
Blackcomb Mountain's best party always starts at Merlins. Head over to the Upper Village and right at the base of the Wizard Express chairlift is where you'll find live music, bar-top dancing, a gondola DJ booth suspended from the ceiling and a large, laid-back and sunny patio. A local's favourite, kids are allowed until 7 PM. View in Google Maps
