Snowboarding in Whistler, BC is a surreal experience. There are a ton of ski terrain and great mountain views!

I’ve been going to Whistler Blackcomb Resort every year for almost a decade…which means I’ve been hunting for the best restaurants in Whistler, BC for a while now. Whistler Blackcomb is one of the best ski and snowboard destinations in the world (and the best in North America). It has unparalleled ski terrain and one of the bigger après ski options at the base of the mountain in Whistler Village.

Yet, the shopping, eating, and drinking options in Whistler Village are…let’s just say diverse. You’ll find a lot of touristy shops filled with tchotchkes you don’t need or overpriced ski clothes. Tucked between those are dining gems like The Old Spaghetti Factory and Ruby Tuesday (cough sarcasm cough).

With all the high street options available, it can be difficult to find the restaurants and cafes worth eating at. And since the prices at this popular ski resort are inflated (mentally prepare for this!), you definitely want to make sure you don’t have food regret.

Over the years I found the secret places to eat in Whistler Village. These are mostly off the beaten path and are loved by both locals and discerning tourists alike. Here’s my carefully-curated, constantly updated list of the best restaurants in Whistler, BC. But shhh…don’t spread the word too much or they might be impossible to get into before you know it.

Spring Style Inspiration: What to Wear During That In-Between Weather

Spring style inspiration alert! This striped vintage henley is a mens rugby shirt from a vintage store in Nashville. Paired with my Animal Traffic beanie, jeans, and a faux leather jacket, it is an easy style to rock in this in-between spring weather!

It’s starting to become that “in between” weather in Seattle. It’s not cold enough for a winter coat anymore, but it’s still too cool to go jacket-less. It’s the type of weather that makes spring style inspiration hard to come by.

Luckily when this weather comes rolling in, I turn to one of my trusted fashion uniforms. I grab some of my favorite PNW made and vintage finds and style it into this “borrowed from the boys” look.

The Balloon Glow event at the Winthrop Air Balloon Festival was one of the coolest things I ever saw in my life. They light up the hot air balloons in the middle of the street and watch them aglow from the fire.

A few weekends ago my boyfriend and I went to Winthrop, WA to celebrate our anniversary. We planned our winter getaway around the Winthrop Balloon Festival because I’d bought him a hot air balloon ride for our anniversary last year (which we never took because I’m an idiot – more on this later).

Winthrop is in central Washington’s Methow Valley, which is home to the largest network of cross-country ski trails in the country. Plus, it’s only a 45-minute drive from Lake Chelan, a great wine region. These two facts, plus the fact that the Winthrop Balloon Festival is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen, make Wintrop the perfect location for a winter getaway in Washington state.

This easy chicken recipe is SO easy and flavorful. It has orange, cocoa, chipotle and cilantro served with sweet potatoes and onions. Pair it with an earthy Malbec for a great easy meal!

I’ve been craving one pan meals recently. Between travel, fun foodie events, and trying to fit in some exercise, I’m completely exhausted at the end of the day and want something easy for dinner.

While I was recipe testing for Valentine’s Day, I ended up playing around with chocolate and chiles. This easy one pan chicken spawned from that. It features all good-for-you goodies like orange, sweet potato, cilantro, and of course, chocolate.

The Walrus and Carpenter in Seattle serves the best steak tartare I have ever had. It is super creamy thanks to a raw egg, salty, and crunchy because of the rye toast crisps. I highly recommend trying this if you go to this popular French restaurant in Seattle!

If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I’m completely obsessed with steak tartare. I’m a complete savage when I go to restaurants. If they have this popular raw meat dish, I will be ordering it.

I started to realize that not all steak tartares are created equal. So I created a Trello board with a running list of all my favorites (I know, I’m a nerd). Rather than let that list go to waste, I thought I’d share with you where to find the best steak tartare in Seattle.
