So, do you like a cold, snowy destination or a warm, sunny beach for a mid-winter break?
We spent three days skiing at Whistler in Canada with our son and friends. What a wonderful ski village and mountain.The village walk is lined with cute little shops and restaurants to please any taste. You can ski either Whistler or Blackcomb and you have an amazing amount of runs to choose from.
If you do not ski, you can ride the gondola up and then take the Peak2peak Gondola across one peak to the other mountain peak. The Peak2peak was built for the Winter Olympics and is definitely something to experience.
It was amazing how many Europeans we met riding up on the chairs. One gentleman from Switzerland said that Whistler village was modeled after a ski resort outside of Geneva, near his home. No wonder the village has such a European feel. However, he did say that the runs in Switzerland are twice as long as the runs at Whistler. I am definitely going to have to put the Swiss Alps on my list of places to visit.
We had some great skiing, a few falls, some great meals and good times with friends! Whistler is absolutely one of our favorite places to visit.
