Storyline

"Whistler" focuses on the interrelationships primarily between three families - the McKayes, the Varlands and the Millers - longtime residents of the mountain resort town of Whistler, with some secrets coming to the surface which affect those relationships. The McKayes are a working class snowboarding family who own a local tavern. Father Ethan, once a world ranked snowboarder in his younger days, blames everything bad in their lives on the Varlands. Oldest son Beck MacKaye is the snowboarding hotshot, while younger son Quinn McKaye, despite loving his brother, is often the neglected one in Beck's shadows. Ethan's younger brother Ryan McKaye is seen as the black sheep of the family, partly because he happily works for the Varlands, cleaning up their messes. The wealthy Varlands own a number of businesses globally, the most prominent local one being the upscale Varland Resort. Adrien Varland places the financial bottom line over everything else, including his family. The working class ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

Several bands performed live on the show in the second season including Jets Overhead and TV Heart Attack. The Tavern set was altered in season two by removing Beck McKaye's medal case and building a small stage where the bands played live. A smaller version of Beck's medal case was moved to the McKaye house set. See more »

Quinn McKaye: It's not a "man date."

A fun guilty pleasure...
21 January 2008 | by bryonniaSee all my reviews

I started watching this show in the second season and found I got quite attached to it. There is a lot of focus on human relationships and dramas (which is fine by me because they're all very nice to look at!) and some snowboarding thrown in on the side. The characters are from all generations which adds a richness to the storyline and as well there is intrigue and deception to spice things up. It's an enjoyable show to relax to each week with great original music from bands and interesting characters. I would recommend it more for younger viewers, however there is variety to each episode. I also like the fact that it doesn't hide the fact that it's Canadian and takes place in Canada (with frequent shots of glorious Banff).
