I had the pleasure last month the visit Whistler. I want to share the experience with you. I honestly was blown away driving through Vancouver. What a beautiful city. I know I come off as a fashion girl but I’m really a girlie tomboy. I could see if I ever left New York it being for Vancouver. It’s one hour from the best snowboarding I’ve ever experienced. They have kite surfing, sailing, biking, gorgeous views, cute neighborhoods – it reminds me of SF, NYC, and Singapore, and hey weed is basically federally legal (not that I’m the biggest stoner but I do share a birthday with Bob Marley and believe in the natural medicinal, calming, and spiritual qualities of it [all of which the human race can use more of] so I do think it should be legal).
Whistler is its own little planet there. It was like Heil-skiing minus the helicopter. Fresh tracks every time. Since I went the last weekend Whistler was open (Blackcomb had another month) I got to experience basically 3 different ski days in one run. The top was white out powder, mid section was regular snow and the bottom was legit beautiful corn powder. It was such an amazing experience! Whistler is one mountain. Blackcomb is next to it. They meet at the same base and they’re connected midmountian by a sky traverse gondola. I mean talk about unique!
Yes I could see this place significantly in my future…indubitably.
