I'd compare it to Verbier but nothing in North America. I moved here out of high school. We'd follow the pro skiers and see them smashing bottles. Whistler has a lot of nudity. There used to be more, but it still happens—go to Merlin's for après and girls may be dancing on the barstools topless. On a powder day we'll ski Blackcomb then go to Merlin's for beers and nachos. Then we'll go to Sushi Village with our ski boots on. After that, you hit one of the nightclubs—Tommy Africa's, Maxx Fish, Garfinkels. But I don't go out as much as I used to. I'm a professional athlete. HOT TIP There are rumors that during the Olympics the Jamaican bobsled team is going to throw parties with reggae bands at their house. [Editor's note: This is true.] I'm going to try to be there.
