Too chilly to hit the hills? Cozy up with a page-turner recommended by the staff at Armchair Books. This family-run bookstore is a staple of Whistler’s literary heritage and the only shop of its kind in the village. If you’re searching for contemporary fiction, store clerk Dan Ellis suggests author Joseph Boyden’s newest Aboriginal life portrait, The Orenda, an insightful representation of pre-nation conflicts fought on the lands that would eventually become Canada. This season, keep warm with a good read.
