Our last day skiing came upon us far too quickly. We had quite a few days on the mountain, but one can never have enough skiing (or apres ski) in my eyes!
We had heard about this incredible place nestled into the side of Blackcomb mountain and simply had to visit it. Waffles topped with everything decadent this world has to offer were calling our names.
We took the gondola up and skied down this beautiful little trail until we hit the Crystal Hut.
If you are ever in Whistler, go to the Crystal Hut for waffles. Dining on sugary goodness while looking over Whistler from high above the village is not something you should turn down. Listen to me on this one!
After maybe one too many bites we spent the rest of the day shredding some gnar…as if that would ever come out of my mouth! I had to try it 😉
A friend showed us an amazing view of the Black Tusk, part of volcano visible from Whistler Mountain! As I stood there taking photos to make my memories last longer, I was amazed at how people can hate winter. How can you not agree that this is beautiful!
You simply can’t. Beauty is beauty, and thats all there is.
Unfortunately we were at that time when the lifts were closing and we could make it part way up the mountain. We stuck it out for a little while, and decided that it was time to Apres Ski!
At least we were leaving one great thing for another. If you haven’t done the whole Apres Ski thing before, give it a try. You’ll make some friends, have a few drinks, and sing along to songs you didn’t realize you knew.
We started out night off at the Garibaldi Lift Co. (GLC) and made friends from around the world.
After some well spent time with our new friends, we were in desperate need of sa snack…and a few more drinks of course.
BAR OSO. O-SO good, should really be its name!
We ordered some Matane Shrimp Montaditos (lemon, shrimp, and avocado on artisan bread) to start and a few cocktails.
If you don’t already understand my love of gin, I love gin. A lovely lady in my life has been telling me about Brockman’s Gin for quite some time now. Unfortunately, you can only find it in the UK…and Whistler! This one’s for you Sandie!
Their tapas style menu was perfect for a snack style dinner. We also ordered the Carrillera Braseadas (Braised Beef Cheek) which was the best beef I have had in my entire life. It was buttery soft, almost melted in your mouth, and was packed full of flavour. Oh my goodness, I want more now!
I would recommend BAR OSO to everyone. It was my favourite restaurant in all of Whistler and the service was impeccable. You really can’t go wrong there.
We finished our meal, drank the last sips of our drinks, and headed out to dance the night away.
I’d say it was one of the best trips in awhile. Don’t you?
