8 days to go, last set of whislter questions.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I promise.

 

I had the enlighten me post a month ago and it was filled with gr8 responses.

 

 

Can you smoke inside of the bars in Canada?  (I dont smoke cant stand being around it)

 

exchange rate, if I roll up there with a whole bunch of US dollars and start paying for everything with them, will a local establishment take them?  if so will I get beat over the head with a 10% fee or something crazy like that.

 

As an aspiring tree skier, any areas easy than others? thinned out, less steep.

 

At 40, my days of dancing all night have left me, however I do enjoy a nice evening of drinking with an occasional splash of live music any suggestions?

 

I usually eat one good steak dinner while on my ski trip and enjoy a nice plate of sushi as well, open to suggestions.

 

Any frequent visitors to W/BC or locals feel free to let me know anything else you think is relevant to a great ski trip. This is your opportunity to tell me why you think Whistler is the best in North America and make sure I leave with the same opinion.

 

Also I have one other question, since I will be traveling with 3 friends and we have been skiing together for 20 years, but no longer live near each other. We meet in the airport, climb into rental, drive to a gentlemans club and catch up on old times.  Any suggestions of for a gentlemans club in the Vancouver area that is right off the way the interstate on the way to the resort? Yes I know wierd, fly accross country to hang with friends and ski, but spend the first 3 hours together looking at naked H**ters, but its a tradition can't break tradition now. 

 

Once again thanks,

At 40, my days of dancing all night have left me, however I do enjoy a nice evening of drinking with an occasional splash of live music any suggestions? Lots of chocies for that...most high end hotel bars have live music but not really for dancing too...Side Cut, Mallard Bar, etc.

 

I usually eat one good steak dinner The Keg while on my ski trip and enjoy a nice plate of sushi Kaze or Sushi Village as well, open to suggestions.

Scandavian Spa (Expensive but worth it)

Apres Scene (all apres bars are good...just do it - daily)

Rim Rock Cafe (Best Restraunt in Whistler)

Citta (Burger and Beer)

Nesters (Groceries)

Bufallo Bills (40+ crowd dance bar)

Tommy Africas (under 40 dance bar)

 - But all bars tend to be good

Earls (hot waitresses, cheap but good food)

Milestones (cheap but good food)

 

If you are looking to find great skiing, have fun, and get some "pointers" but not looking for lessons...Ski Esprit.  Request "Jana Lanays".  Great fun. With her you will also get a first class tour of the bars too!

 

Avoid - Bear Foot Bistro (4 star restraunt -  6 star prices.  If you know good food and wine, you will be extremely disappointed)

 

 

This is your opportunity to tell me why you think Whistler is the best in North America and make sure I leave with the same opinion.

 

Also I have one other question, since I will be traveling with 3 friends and we have been skiing together for 20 years, but no longer live near each other.

Yes I know wierd, fly accross country to hang with friends and ski, but spend the first 3 hours together looking at naked H**ters, but its a tradition can't break tradition now. Used to be Cecil, even was on the way...but now torn down to make way for condos hopmad.gif.  Try Number 5 Orange , abit out your way, but not too bad, but in a bad part of town so dont park far, and dont carry cash, once inside you are ok thou.  Thsi place is famous as Aerosmith used to hang out there, and Demi Moore stripped there once....you can also try Marble Arch.  Been a long while since I have gone so might need to verify these places still exist...pretty sure they do thou.

 

Once again thanks,
