Favourite on-mountain snack:
Crystal Hut (at the top of the Crystal chair on Blackcomb) ... superb waffles. Don't be put off by the odor from the toilets as you approach (seperate building) ... the waffles are made to order & will fill you up for sure.
Favourite late start:
Chef Bernards: excellent breakfast, but be prepared to wait as it's small so not many seats.
Favourite if someone else is paying:
Rimrock: top notch posh food [img]smile.gif[/img] Spent $70 (CDN) per head for 3 courses inc. wine ... which is cheap by UK standards for a very very nice place.
Somebody commented about Whistler being expensive to eat out & by Aussie or US standards it probably is, but for a Scot living near London who usually skis in France it is dirt cheap.
Favourite apres ski snack:
Merlins (next to Blackcomb lodge) has the biggest plate of natchos I've ever seen. Good burgers too.
Favourite stagger from home:
Gators (above the Boot near Nesters): good Mexican food, can watch the hockey game if you're at the bar ... and then there's the Boot downstairs with the Boot Ballet on a Tuesday evening (the local striptease).
My favourite ski shop: Wild Willies at Nesters.
Favourite tree run: Arthurs Choice (or Arthurs Crack as I renamed it) ... off Ridge Runner ... far left of Blackcomb as you look at the trail map.
Favourite callestrole intake: a Ridgerunner breakfast roll from Rendezvour (sorry, my spelling is hopeless).
Favourite powder stash: not telling
Favourite bumps: Staircase (Blackcomb, between the 2 chairs heading out of Glacier Creek).
Favourite nightspot: Tommy Africas after a serious 'Guitar Doug' Monday night session at Merlins.
Favourite hangover cure: bumps off the front of Peak Chair when visibility is poor and the going is heavy. A close 2nd would be 15 mins in the Walzers at the fair
