Whistler

I've just survived my first day back at school after returning from Canada at the weekend - no mean feat given the mess that my body-clock is in.

Whistler and Blackcomb are awesome - masses of fresh snow, and every kind of terrain, from wide open pisted cruisers to bowls full of untracked powder to groovy gladed runs though the trees that held onto their fresh snow for the whole fortnight.

The resort village was great too - loads of shopping, drinking and eating opportunities, all offered up by genuinely friendly staff (many of them aussies!).

Here are a few photos, which of course fail to capture the experience!

  1. Photos look great - glad you enjoyed it...

    must say I think I saw more of the bars and resturants in town that I would have liked when I was there a couple of years back - Whistler was in the middle of their worst season on record - the shops had given up on skiing and were renting out mountain bikes - and this was the first week of March.

    still, as you say, an awesome place and I'd still go back - having checked up on the snow conditions of course!

  2. We had a brilliant time thanks Doug.

    I remember reading about the terrible conditions at Whistler a few years ago - disaster! I think it was a pretty unusual occurrence.
