Bearfoot Bistro

Join our Vancouver stringer, Celeste Moure, for daily happenings from the host city.

There’s no shortage of apres-ski options to choose from in Whistler, from the relaxed vibe at Garibaldi Lift Company where live bands often play to a hip crowd to the casual sports bar ambiance at Merlins, which reputedly serves the best nachos in town. With the recent opening of the Belvedere Ice Room in the award-winning Bearfoot Bistro restaurant, patrons can really chill out in style. The sleek sub-zero vodka room (Canada’s first) is kept at a frosty -18 degree Celsius and showcases standout spirits in individual ice sculpted display boxes behind a frozen bar. Electronic beats blast in the background and the crowd mingles in loaner Canada Goose down parkas and winter hats while examining a menu featuring an impressive 50 vodkas from around the world. On a recent visit I washed down a chilled plate of caviar, oysters, and gravadlax with a flight of vodka samples from Poland, France, Sweden, Russian and even nearby Pemberton, British Columbia. Not a bad way to end a day on the slopes.
