i can confirm winter is cold, especially up atop the mountain at the peak of whistler. the drive up sea to sky highway was pretty congested with the icy and slippery conditions, but we made it safely and unharmed, unlike my parents back in vancouver. they were involved in a hit and run but i’m not there for them and sadly cannot be of any help. i can only worry about their safety one hundred kilometres away plus pray that we find the culprit that fled the scene

annual ski trip

whistler bound on bc family day to continue our crew’s annual ski trip tradition. we skied in smaller groups based on varying speeds and skill level, but reconvened at lunch at whistler village to grab some overpriced pizza slices. after taking a group picture up at the peak of blackcomb gondola, we continued our skiing but this time in different subdivided groups. wished i had the opportunity to have a few runs with the fastest of speedsters as well, but my group wasn’t too slow either. the top of the mountain was beautiful, with snowflakes falling in our faces and fresh powder for our skis and boards to shred. the blue runs highlighted the thrilling experiences carving through thick powder which really worked my legs. my triceps were not a fan of the flats of the green runs or the uphill climbs when it had to do all the work to propell myself across. had so much fun today i wasn’t ready to leave the mountain even when the lifts closed down and my legs were all skied out. would have been even better if i wasn’t still feeling under the weather. i can only wish to be back up whistler very soon
