Christmas season is almost here and looking at our bookings chart, there will be a lot of you in Whistler this holiday season! We understand how stressful it can be to travel during the holiday season (often from one side of the world to another) and then trying to settle in and get ready for the festive days. This is why we put together this blog with Christmas dinner options in Whistler, so that you can decide what is best for you and your family, without spending too much time on researching this topic.

There is also a great source for a restaurant, liquor, grocery, and gift & special delivery to explore as well on Whistler Dine In site.
Christmas Dinner at a Whistler Restaurant
Anyone who has explored Whistler before knows that there is no shortage of restaurants here! The main village stroll is packed with restaurants of all kinds and there are a number of amazing places to eat at, a short drive away from the main center as well. The two great resources for checking actual specials, availability and rates are:
- The Pique Magazine: This local Whistler paper comes out every Thursday and the online version is available on Wednesdays. Visitors can grab a copy pretty much at any grocery store or a coffee shop around the village.
- Whistler Bites: This website has great info about food & drink deals all over Whistler.
- We also posted two blogs about Top 10 Breakfast Places in Whistler and Top 6 Restaurants in Whistler based on our personal experience.
DIY Christmas Dinner
Having said all of the above, there are still some of us who simply love and prefer to make their Christmas dinner by themselves. Some of the benefits of doing it all by yourself are:
- A complete control over your menu and ingredients.
- The flexibility to adjust your dinner according to your cultural background and habits (not all countries eat turkey for Christmas dinner).
If you are one of our repeat customers, then you know that 99% of our properties have fully equipped kitchens to cover your basic cooking needs. This is why we recommend that you touch base with us about your cooking plans so we can clarify if the equipment provided will meet your expectations. We may even be able to get what you need if it is not in our inventory, so asking never hurts.
