when it snows...

If I thought Vancouver was amazing, and beautiful - I was doubly impressed with Whistler.  One of the best places I've been, ever.  I got to spend my 29th birthday there, by myself looking around the town and appreciating every part of it.  

Come with me through your computer screen...

Whistler was the home of the winter olympics in 2010.  There are some super cool structures left over, not to mention cute cafes and shops.

We headed up the mountain for a spot of snow...

It snowed while we were up there - see the shape of the snowflake on my arm?  It looks like a real snowflake shape.  Cool beans.
(Feel free to avoid looking at my frodo fingers.)

Me and My Guy looking like total tourists in amongst all the die hard skiing fans on the last weekend of ski season.

I got trapped under the gate on my way up the hill...  You should really stay clear to avoid injury...

Farewell, sweet Whistler.  It was fun while it lasted.
See you again soon.

  1. Just catching up on your blog ... love the photos in this post and the last one. Whistler in particular looks so beautiful. I have family in Canada (Vancouver, Calgary and Kelowna) so I really do need to get back over there to visit that side of the country (I've been to Toronto). Such a pretty country!

  2. Ah, I love Whistler too - such a beautiful place! Did you go on the Peak-to-Peak across to Blackcomb? I can't believe there were still people out skiing - doesn't look like there was much snow left!!
    I'm glad you enjoyed it so much!

  3. Love your photos as usual. Love your cute little froddo fingers :-)


Thanks for your comment - you really do make my day!
