Nothing says summer more than a good old fashioned BBQ and if you’re going to BBQ you may as well sample the nation’s best. August 2-4, 2013 will see the return of the Bull’s-Eye Canadian Natinoal BBQ Championships for 12th year. Grill masters from throughout North America will be converging on Whistler to compete for the honour of “Canadian Grand Champion,” and $7,000 in cash and prizes. Not to mention the much desired spot in the World BBQ Championships which is up for grabs.
From local legends to world champions, the BBQ Champs pits the best of the best against each other in heated BBQ competitions all weekend long. Come down and see the pros in action, sample some of the best BBQ you will ever eat, or just relax on Whistler's sunniest patio at Dusty’s Bar & BBQ.

"One of my favorite hotels in the world"
It is possible to fluke a flawless visit to a hotel. It could also be said with a little luck you could have an exceptional guest experience with little or no input from the staff and administration of an establishment. This being the case we decided to return to the Crystal for a second year in a row (something we have never done anywhere else in the world) to see if our first visit was a fluke. I am very happy to confirm it was not. The staff team from front desk to housekeeping are all exceptional and I couldn’t fault one single function, task or attitude in the building. I genuinely feel that they care about my experience and stay with them both in and out of their hotel. I hope this review encourages you to stay with them, I hope it encourages the team there to carry on doing exactly what they are doing. And I hope to see them again in the future. Well done guys and thank you for another magical stay.
