Photos from our trip to Whistler, British Columbia
Ah, Whistler. Our happy place. Our home away from home.
We finally managed to organize a snowboarding trip to Whistler WITHOUT the kiddies. We were looooong overdue. We dropped the boys off at the grandparents house over Spring Break so we could have a little adult time.
It was so nice to spend some quality time together on the slopes followed by lots of eating and drinking. We enjoy the après ski experience as much as the actual ski experience. And the hot tub is an essential part of the equation too.
Here are a few photos from our recent snowboarding trip to Whistler.
Up we go! This is view from the Big Red chairlift.

Whooohooo! Can’t believe this section was untouched! Big turns, soft powder.
It’s hard to miss Nicole in her brightly coloured Columbia gear.
This was the best run of the day. Just behind those trees was pure powder bliss.

Can you guess which way we went? If you guessed left, you win a prize!
