Whistler’s crazy new 130-metre suspension bridge (from Peak Chair to West Ridge) is delayed until spring, but that doesn’t mean the Greatest Resort in the World doesn’t have a lot to get excited about…like eating.

The Change-Up
Toptable Group (West, CinCin, Blue Water Cafe) is reimagining Umberto’s classic Il Caminetto, with Araxi’s legendary James Walt taking the reins (and handing over Araxi to West’s Quang Dang). Opening date is early 2018.

Haut Luncheon
Want to stay on-mountain? David Hawksworth will be hosting a series of luxe lunch pop-ups at Steeps (February 10, March 10), where for $63 you can imagine you’re in Gstaad but with more Arc’teryx and fewer barons.

Fresh Start
For those who would prefer to skip the bustle of the village altogether, Nita Lake Lodge’s Aura has just overhauled itself, with new decor courtesy of Scott and Scott architects and a new menu.
