Photo Friday: Whistler Mountain Beavertails

We seem to be hearing a lot about poutine lately, but for my money the Canadian kid-friendly food of choice is the Beavertail. Fresh, warm fried dough dredged in sugar and cinnamon. Where did we try this delicacy? There's a takeaway stand halfway up Whistler mountain, which makes it the perfect fuel in the middle of the long run down. Before you put your gloves back off, you can just wipe your fingers in the snow to remove the sticky sugar. MMMMM.

  • Post a travel photo on your site. It can be about any topic, as long as it is G-rated.
  • The focus of the post should be on your photo.
  • You don't need to be a professional photographer (I'm not), but do showcase your best work, and make it big enough to see well!
  • It's nice to include a few sentences about the photo, but it is not required.

        I agree!! I guess I'm one of the apparently few Canadians that just doesn't like poutine. Beavertails on the other hand are delicious!

        Looks yummy! I haven't had a beaver tail in so long and need to revisit:) My vancouver cravings are usually Japadog and Screamers.

        I can just picture my kids planting their faces in the cinammon-sugary snow afterward! ;-) Looks like a great treat.

        Fried dough is all I need to hear to like it! Yummy!

        Any bit of fried dough swimming in sugar or slathered with chocolate is kid-friendly, but let's not get all crazy and start shunning poutine (the irony is that both are better in Quebec than in other parts of Canada)!
