SAVOUR A MOUNTAIN TOP FEAST
Looking for a terrific way to cap your day in North America’s top fourseason resort? Starting Saturday, June 17, Whistler Blackcomb (WB) Executive Chef Wolfgang Sterr invites you to enjoy a multi-course, buffet-style dinner at the Roundhouse Lodge on Whistler Mountain. The meals, adapted from the Mountain Top Barbecues from past summers, combine hearty cuisine with breathtaking views (at 1,800 metres or 6,000 feet) and live music.
“The Mountain Top Summer Feasts attract a wide range of guests, from families from the Lower Mainland to groups of local friends,” said Lauren Roy, WB public relations specialist. “The vibe is very relaxed, with live music and glowing sunsets to appreciate while you enjoy your food and a beer.”
The dress code is casual to fit the “mountain top” mood. The menu, which is set by Sterr and his WB culinary team, includes selections from the grill, a salad and bakery station, side dishes, “sweet tooth” desserts, coffee and tea. The entrées include slow-roasted prime rib of beef, dry-rub barbecue roasted chicken, oceanwise fillet of salmon with maple butter glaze and Memphis-style pork ribs with hickory barbecue sauce. “This year’s Mountain Top Summer Feasts will combine the best of what we’ve done in the past into one inclusive menu,” Chef Sterr said. “The feasts will cater to a broad spectrum of palates in a high-quality, buffet-style setting with something to offer for everyone.”
The Mountain Top Summer Feasts take place Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from June 23 to Sept. 3, and Saturdays only on June 17 and from Sept. 9 to Oct. 7. There are seatings at 5:30 and 7 p.m. each night. Visit whistlerblackcomb.com.
