Mr. Luxury Ski


Garibaldi Lift Company is not in fact a lift company… although it was once. All you need to know is that Whistler locals refer to it as GLC and you’re going to want to get to this perch above the gondola building early for a comfy seat from which you can catch all the tired-out skiers making their way home down the Lower Olympic trail (you’re bound to catch a yard sale or two). Make it a Labatt-soaked après, or keep it (relatively) healthy with the bar’s spicy Caesar—Canada’s version of the Bloody Mary. The pace picks up here after dark when GLC is Whistler’s best venue for live music.
