Up early and dressed in plenty of layers we headed for snow. 1.5hrs later we were driving in to Whistler village. It was really interesting to see the difference in scenery compared to when we were there at Christmas...more green, less white!
We hired our gear and headed up the gondola. We headed over to the symphony bowl on the backside of the mountain and the snow was fantastic. A little hard to see at times and less groomed...so a few more unexpected bumps..but that made it all the more fun!! We had a few great runs through the trees before we caught the peak to peak gondola over to Blackcomb mountain and skied to the crystal hut for lunch. Up to 7th heaven to get a couple of our favourite run at Christmas in and then it was time to make our way down the mountain. This resort is so massive it takes 45min to get from top to bottom.
Eventually we made it to the bottom and finished off with some après ski vino and fries. Whistler was awesome with fewer people we could get so many more runs in and the snow was still great!
We were pretty knackered but decided to go out for dinner in gas town for Alex's last night. Dinner was great and we would have loved to continue on but we were all so tired...bed time instead!
