After a few days of getting soaked in Vancouver we were enticed to head for the mountains by the occasional glimpses of the snow in the distance. After all, rain is wet and cold, snow is dry and cold - that should be better? Just over 2 hours on a greyhound and we were out of the rain and into the snow at Whistler. Brenda was in photographers paradise and I was was in agony - all that great snow, sunshine, no crowds, no wind and A BUNG KNEE. Depression set in. The snow is something - no groomed icy slopes and crowds of people, just dry powder. M

Best part of today was the Gondola and Peak to Peak Cable Car. Snow at the top was incredible, soft and dry. Our first experience of freezing. Village pretty touristy so spent most of our time at the top of the mountain. Peak to Peak transfers you from Whistler Mountain to Blackcombe Mountain. Snow is pretty enticing - soft and thick. B

Its incredible scenery there, wait to you get to Banff Springs its amazing and Lake Louisse and Moraine. Is Michael going to shout you a night in the famous B S Hotel? Just got back from a swim in Cudgen creek it was high tide and as good as Tahiti. Anyway enjoy the cold, snow and magnificent scenery as it will make it more worthwhile when you get home. Adios, John.
