A sampling of craft beers from Whistler Brewhouse.

Whistler's best cheap eats.


Splitz Grill: Everything from teriyaki British Columbia salmon to the Saltspring Island lamb burger is grilled to order, and there are 20 toppings including baba ghanouj. 4369 Main St.; 604-938-9300;

Whistler Brewhouse: The perfect Olympic-watching mix of jumbo screens and brewmaster Dave Woodward’s small-batch ales and lagers, like the smooth, copper-colored Red Truck Ale. 4355 Blackcomb Way; 604-905-BREW;

The Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre: The beautiful new center has a great little café serving a Mountain hoagie layered with bison salami, arctic muskox and wild boar prosciutto. The smoked candied salmon is amazing. 4584 Blackcomb Way; 604-964-0990.

Get the poutine at this snack shack—a mountain of fresh-cut fries ladled with Quebec-worthy gravy and cheese curds. There's also a cast-iron pan filled with "help yourself" caramelized onions. 4340 Sundial Cres.; 604-938-6644

The Beet Root Café: A funky lunch spot specializing in healthy dishes including yam quesadillas with chipotle and pumpkin seeds, and pear-and-brie sandwiches with caramelized pecans and spinach. 129-4340 Lorimer Rd.; 604-932-1163
