Skiing, snowboarding, biking, hiking, and EATING! Yes, in Whistler we do food as well as do everything else. And to celebrate the culinary and drink masterpieces that exist not just in the mountains, but all over the world, there is Cornucopia Whistler. From November 9th to 19th, a celebration of food and drink takes over Whistler in the form of tastings, seminars, and events all catered to the Epicurious. Don’t be fooled, you don’t have to be a foodie to enjoy this festival, there truly is something for everyone!
