A Great Little Ski Town

Whistler is now tied with Breckenridge as my favorite ski town.  Loved how small and charming it is.  So easy to navigate and an unbelievable number of activities for the non-skier (that's me).

First full day at Whistler, Greg and B decided to head up the mountain and enjoy a day of skiing.  Because this was early April, there was unfortunately no snow at the base of the mountain.  Usually, this is not the case in Whistler as they have snow till mid-April.  They enjoyed a full day of skiing while I headed off to entertain myself.  First on my list was a nice long run/walk.  I was treated to a magnificent day, sunny day with temps in the mid-50s.  I was easily able to squeeze in my 10,000 steps and meet my Fitbit goal.  Before meeting them at the ski lift, I popped in to the best little coffee shop for a latte (it really was little - 4 foot walkway and about 20 feet deep.  While waiting for them to end their day of skiing, I sat outside, drank my latte, and closed my eyes taking in the sunshine.  What a wonderful way to spend the first day in the mountains.

Mid-50s for skiing and they didn't have to layer on the clothes.  Beautiful views from my run.

A bit of an intrepid smile, but she loved her day on the slopes.

Megan, you would have enjoyed this cup and the sunshine that came with it!
