My Favorite Ski Resort Town: Whistler, BC Canada

Since I was a little girl, my family took me skiing. We used to go to Vail, Colorado for many years. One year, they decided to try a new place: Whistler in BC, Canada. We all fell in love with it. The mountain, the trails, the town, the restaurants, the shopping, everything was great. So we kept going every year.

We stopped going about 6 years ago when most of us went separate ways and lead lives on different schedules, but I still cherish my memories in Whistler and often miss skiing there.

Whistler is about 80 miles (about 125 km) North of Vancouver, so we used to fly to Vancouver and then drive up to Whistler. We would spend a few days in Vancouver to enjoy this amazing city. I would live there in a heartbeat.

Cloudy and foggy day at the mountain.

On foggy days, visibility in the mountain is limited. I remember skiing during these times and it is an adrenaline rush. You can barely see the person skiing in front of you. Not the safest time to ski but fun nonetheless.
