Whistler Blackcomb



 Lately it has been all about embracing life in Canada - from the West Coast in British Columbia to the East Coast in Quebec. So that's where I've been. I needed more winter than New England could give. I missed the snow. 

Whistler Blackomb in British Columbia is at the top of her class. Fourteen of us stayed slopeside in the Graystone Condos on Blackomb Mountain just above the upper village and a ten minute walk to the main village. Besides getting our fill of skiing six days on piste - we spent an intense day touring the backcountry with Extremely Canadian where our skilled guides Les and Chelsea lead us to the top of Decker Glacier and back. Head over to Joy of Outside for specifics on our Canadian Backcountry adventure and a detailed recap of the trip with helpful planning tips!

For on mountain food and drink - don't miss the Japanese Ramen and pulled pork poutine at Rendevous, the Glühwein (pronounced glue-vine, a German hot mulled wine) at the Hortsman Hut on 7th Heaven summit and the loaded waffle at the mid mountain Crystal Hut. For après - Bloody Caesars at Garibaldi Lift Company and dancing on stage + the shot ski at Merlin's make the top of our list!

More soon!!
