Whistler Apres Winter

The word Après originated in the Alps, when it was used to describe skiers sitting down and enjoying a beverage or two at the end of a long day of skiing. The word stuck and today it's associated with ski resorts all around the world to describe unwinding after a long day on the slopes, shopping, hiking, day at the spa or even just sitting around the hotel.

A Whistler Creekside Tradition

Après in Whistler Creekside is as old as Whistler Mountain itself. When Whistler was still just a one run mountain the first Après spot consisted of just a few tables and chairs together thrown together in front of a temporary construction trailer. Its name? Dusty's!

Today, Dusty's lives on, albeit in a little swankier digs. Whistler Creekside's premier Après location sits at the base of the Creekside Gondola providing skiers and boarders ski-in-ski-out access. Equipped with a massive patio overlooking the mountain, Dusty's doubles as a bar and live entertainment spot after 10 PM. Cheap drinks, great BBQ and good vibes make this massive post and beam bar a great place to unwind after a long day of activities.

Dusty's Bar & BBQ

Dusty's BBQ and BarEvery summer Dusty's Bar & BBQ hosts the Canadian National BBQ Championships! Dusty's takes great pride in this function and it carries over into their menu throughout the rest of the year. Dusty's is home to some of the best BBQ in Whistler - with a special spot for the 'best burger' of the championship reserved on that year's menu. Located in the heart of Creekside, Dusty's makes for a great place to sit and enjoy a beverage with friends, either on their massive patio or inside in the rustic country styled bar. Children are welcome at Dusty's until 10 PM - at which time the bar turns into a live music venue. Please note that the last day of summer operations is September 17th, 2019. We will open again for the winter season on November, 2019.
