Another epic day on the slopes of Whistler!
It’s not every day that the weather cooperates when playing on the Coastal Mountains of British Columbia. Heck, it’s not every day we get to ride North America’s best ski hill either. So we thought we’d share our big mountain experience with you!
This video was shot last weekend with our pocket-sized waterproof camera, so our apologies for the guerrilla footage and shaking screen in some sections. What can I say, snowboarding and video shooting is not as easy as it looks.
Curious about what it looks like at the Peak of Whistler Mountain?
Well then, you’re in luck! Click on the image below to watch our short video.

Sometimes we forget how fortunate we are to be so close to arguably one of the best ski resorts in North America, maybe even the world? With over 200 runs, 39 lifts and well over 8,000 acres of terrain, you can literally spend a week exploring the mountains and still not cover it all.
Adding to the Whistler buzz is the recent addition of the record breaking Peak-2-Peak gondola that now connects Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, giving skiers and snowboarders quick and easy access to both mountains. That, plus the fact that it was co-host of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games (okay, that might have been a little bragging)
