Snow Vacation 2009

Blackcomb Mountain, BC
Blackcomb Mountain, BC

For the first time ever, Jay and I went on a winter “snow” vacation instead of a winter “sun” vacation. We just got home from a long weekend at Whistler. While not entirely injury free (we are both trying to learn to snowboard, and both had some falls on Saturday), we did have a lot of fun. This set of photos are from the day we went up the mountains on the lifts for some tourist activity. They just built a “peak to peak” gondola for the Olympics that goes between Blackcomb and Whistler mountains — it was quite a view.

We were joined on the trip with Jen, John, Colin, and our friend Jesse (who was John’s snowboard friend, since the rest of us are still beginners).

  1. Lovely! I SO want to go, NOW. Looks like you had beautiful weather, too. I didn’t know they built a peak-to-peak gondola. Rad. How long is the ride? I haven’t skied Whistler/Blackcomb in 20 yrs.
