While enjoying the sights and experiences that being in Whistler can bring, you may find yourself getting hungry. After a tiring and cold day hitting the slopes and tearing up the powdery snow, you could find yourself craving for a hot, filling meal to really hit that spot. Now, there are a lot of good places to eat around Whistler, but when it comes to that after-skiing indulgence, there are few foods that can come close to a good burger.
People have different opinions on what makes a good burger. Some people argue that it’s all in the patty, while others stand firm that it’s all in the bun.
