Whistler Weeekend

Check out all the pics here (click me)

It was another great weekend! Natalie, Ross, Stephanie and I headed up to Whistler for the weekend. We got out of Seattle Thursday afternoon and headed north.

About two hours outside of the city I stopped to get gas and after looking up at the nicely locked up skiis on the roof I realized that I left the keys back at the house. A quick call back to Seattle and Jake confirmed that yes, my keys were sitting in the house. Hmm, that will make life interesting Friday morning. Oh well, too far now so we decided to just keep going and track down a locksmith.

Friday morning Ross and I went out to find a locksmith who was able to open up the locks (all 4 of them) in about 2 minutes. This will make me think twice before trusting those locks too much. A quick $30 for that guy but we were psyched to be able to get to our gear and head out to the mountain.

Friday was one of the best days of skiing I have had in a long time. We had crystal clear skies and the snow up top was really nice. The highlight for me had to be the hike to the top of Blackcomb mountain and the great jump rolling off the top.

We got off of the slopes and partied a little too hard for the first night (or really any night for that matter) so we all woke up feeling like we had been hit by a truck.

Saturday was pretty snowy and cold and we all were a little off after the past night. After a few runs we all had our head in the game and enjoyed the rest of the day. Saturday night was a very low key night where we cooked in the room and made a small dent in a bottle of wine.

It was sad to head back Sunday but we made good time and stopped over in Bellingham for lunch at a cool brew pub. It was hard to let such a great weekend go but we will be back next year!!
