My ski time this season started a bit later than usual due to the delay of snow dump. In the middle of December, I went skiing to Whistler, and this was the second time to go up. It was still early season, so some sections on the mountains were still closed.

Before my first run of the day, I decided to have breakfast at Roundhouse. The Roundhouse is a place beside the top of Whistler Gondola accessing from the village. It is a two-story building, and there are washroom, gift shops, and seats that you can have food or rest. On the first floor, there is Pika’s food station and a cafe station, and on the second floor, there are food stations, Mountain Market and Expressway (behind each other), a cafe stand, a bar, and a restaurant.

Pika’s wasn’t open yet due to the early season, and there is a sing to go upstairs, Expressway.

I ordered from Breakfast Sandwiches menu.

Ham, Brie, Tomato & Egg on Buttery Croissant with Hash Browns

The combination of brie, egg and croissant is great. Hash browns weren’t crispy; they were like being steamed.

The price is slightly up since the last season.

Well, skipping Saturday for skiing, if the weather seems nice and I know there would be lots of fresh untouched snow, of course, I would go on Sunday, although I usually not to. When I arrived in Whistler mountain, I still could hear the bombing sounds for avalanche control.

Although waiting time for lifts was long, snow was fantastic, and so was view! Yeah, as usual, my legs can’t handle fresh snow at some point, so I headed to the Chic Pea hut for lunch. When the Roundhouse was packed, you can get away from it and come down the hut if you can ski on green run.

I ordered kids size Pizza.

There are 3 or 4 different kinds of pizza including vegetarian choice. Also, for the kids size, you can choose nann or sandwiches instead of pizza.

On the second day of our vacation in Whistler, we went riding after we checked-out the hotel. It was cloudy day and a bit cold. Snow on the mountain was still good but harder and heavier. We decided to have lunch around 12:30 at Roundhouse on Whistler mountain.

If you go upstairs at Roundhouse, you will find two food sections, one restaurant, and two bars. Where we went was one of two food sections, called Mountain Market.

We ordered from the noodle bowl menu to share.
