Looking back at our winter travels – our 15 most popular photos


Looking back at our winter travels

While it’s technically not spring for another two weeks, spring has sprung here in Vancouver. It’s been a very weird winter. So weird, that I would go as far as saying we didn’t even have a winter. The local ski hills have been closed for weeks because there’s no snow to be found. The sun is shining and mid-day temperatures have been in the double-digits for consecutive weeks (that’s Celsius for our American friends).

Okay, okay. So that may have come across as bragging. What can I say – it’s good to be here!

With winter now behind us, I’d like to share some of our most popular photos from the past two months. And by popular, I mean the photos that got the most likes on Instagram. You can check out our Instagram page here. Stop by and say hello!

We decided to make 2015 the year we embrace winter. Instead of heading south to the warmer climates of Mexico or Hawaii (which is what we’ve done the past 4 years), we set a goal to visit 5 ski resorts this winter. We came really close to the goal, visiting Whistler, Lake Louise, Big White Ski Resort (Kelowna, BC) and Marmot Basin (Jasper, Alberta). Ironically, the 5th resort was going to be Mount Washington or Mount Baker (both are fairly close to Vancouver), but they don’t have any snow either.

Below are the most popular Instagram photos from our winter travels.
