Whistler, Canada - 2011

# Posted by Joel Dixon at 30/07/2012 12:26:12

As part of 'Cho and Char's wedding - the honeymoon was three-days skiing the Whistler / Blackcomb mountains. A giant cabin was hired directly next to the ski fields and we all piled in there. Even now (writing this roughly 18 months later) I can remember how beautiful the scenery was, and how excellent the ski conditions stayed. We were all very much spoiled because Whistler was uncharacteristically dumping heaps of powder each night in mid-April - even my instructor couldn't stop mentioning how lucky we all were.

I took ski lessons the second and third day, and was so glad I did. Not only did I get some professional tips that improved my skiing three-fold - he knew where the best places on the mountains were. After about an hour of lessons he spent the rest of the day just taking us around to fun places to ski - mostly all fresh powder. I was very much spoilt by this Whistler experience, although I made the most of the experience and left my body a worn out and tired mess.
