Après, a single word that means you had a day worth celebrating. It’s what comes after your adventure seeking heart is content. It’s a beer with good people ready to relax and relive the memories freshly made. Too soon? Never.
Whistler is the heart of après, what can we say, we love to celebrate! Traditionally après is a term used exclusively for drinks after skiing known as après-ski, but in this town, we think that there are many activities worth après-ing over. Don’t get us wrong, it would be rude not to cheers after a day on the slopes, we just think there are a few more activities that fall into the “celebratory” category – and plenty more ways to earn your après than hitting the slopes.
Wonder what we’re talking about? Check out our first official Gibbons Après Lager video below for the Whistler Après 101.
Feeling overwhelmed with the numerous opportunities in Whistler to earn your après? You should. This town is oozing with them. But, rather than feeling overwhelmed, why not welcome as many experiences as you can!
