Whistler Day 2 – Apres Ski

Today was the first day on the mountain and it was spectacular. My friend Eric and I spent the day on Blackcomb and it was completely dead. Lift lines were non-existent and you had free run of the place. We did Blackcomb glacier once and stuck to runs around the Excalibur, 7th Heaven, SolarExpress and Glacier lifts.

I am within walking distance to the mountain, this mornings trek was like a death march. I have new boots that aren’t quite broken in yet. My feet hurt and continued throughout the morning. By the end of the day though, they were all good.

I’m liking the K2 One Luv skis too. They are pretty fast but controllable.

I’m kicking myself for not bringing my camera today because I saw lots of interesting ski wear out and about. Oh well, tomorrow.

  1. Aww so jealous! I’m from BC and have never been to Whistler! So sad…it must be breath taking there! Have a wonderful time!

  2. It is pretty amazing here. I’m a lover of the mountains and I cry sometimes when I look around me on the peaks. It can be surprisingly quiet on the mountain skiing, sometimes it’s just the sound of your skis cutting through the snow and that’s it.

    I can’t believe you never went. It’s suppose to be incredible in the summer too. I haven’t been at that time of year yet.
