 Fatigue is no joke. Some wise advice about taking a break. When in Whistler, it's easier said than done though. Either way, good to get some solid insurance prior to heading out that way.

 taking a break at Whis is not easy...it's like R Kelly in reverse...."My body's telling me NOOOOO, but my mind...my minds telling me goooooo"

 Like R Kelly, it seems the only way to take a break at Whistler is to lock your underage partner in a bedroom... OK that didn't make sense but fuck that pedophile.

 Speaking of food in Whistler, my go to good food value was booting down to the bottom of the village to Dups. That place was great. Any locals have other suggestions to replace it?

 The Japanese market between the pho noodle bar and subway, across the parking lot from Evolution Bike Shop, marks their take-out food down 50% off at 8:30pm. In the summer, if you’re there late enough to do a sweep lap, riding down there for a big rice bowl afterwards is excellent.

If I’m with folks that want to go have a beer mid-day, I’ll do The Warehouse down near the library for a $5.99 burger and fries. All of their food is that price, so you’re not limited to the burger.

And if I’m by myself, I’ll always head to Misty Mountain Pizza, behind garbanzo bike and bean. They sell day-olds for $1.75. Minimum $5 credit card purchase though so make sure you have a toonie on you.

 Just to officially make this the start of a guide to being cheap in Whistler, if you need a tube in whistler, Summit ha been the cheapest shop that I’ve found. $8 at Summit vs $12 that is charged elsewhere. And they offer a 10% pass discount.

 Moguls for coffee & breakfast, Ingrid's for lunch.

 To avoid the crowds, we rode down to Creekside and hit the Creekside Market. They have a killer deli. Grab some food/beer, ride back to Creekside Village and consume. It's cheaper than Dusty's and takes half the time.

 food in whistler is horrible.........

 El Warehouse Project down by the brewery is good after a long day. All menu items are $6
The other place is Peaked Pies. Super easy to eat on the lift or while hanging out at the top of the gondola.

 All them burgers and poutines and pizzas and chippers aren't just pricey but they're also rubbish - worst food I've ever had in ages - most people seem to be ok with just junk food ( literally ) everywhere you look - I cooked a pasta with limited resources just as edible as the bottom floor restaurant and it costed a fraction of the price.....

..... It's expected to pay inflated prices because that's just what resorts do..... But god'damn it at least make it edible !

 @Luis-Sc: Agreed 100%. The only places we've found that are worth a damn (while they are more expensive) are: Creekbreak, Roland's Pub, Araxi, Bar Oso, Ramen place by the asian grocery store.

Everything else is just rubbish junk food from Sysco and tastes the same.
