Whistler’s best restaurants know a thing or two about creating memorable dining experiences, and you can bet that they pull out all the stops for New Year’s Eve.

If You’re Feeling: Like a Celebration Under the Stars

Then Try: Taking Things Outside

Rent a pair of cross country skis or snowshoes, fill a thermos with hot chocolate, and enjoy a New Year’s Eve under Whistler’s impossibly clear, starry skies. Spending time enjoying the outdoors will ensure that you start 2015 off on the right foot.
