Whistler has a long ski season. It stretches from November through to May, and as the days get longer with the sun creating creamy, soft ski conditions Whistler locals know that it's all about the spring skiing.
This February 9 and 10 it's going to be all things hockey at Whistler Olympic Plaza as Rogers Hometown Hockey rolls into town. Hockey is to Canada what football (soccer) is to England, and sumo wrestling is to Japan - it's an intrinsic part of the culture.
The tradition of après may have originated in France but in true Whistler fashion a local spin has been put on it. Here, you can après any way from playing family games to vodka tasting in an ice room.
