Fresh TracksPosted on February 12, 2014
With all this fresh snow in the forecast what better time than the present to come and visit us here in Whistler, last night saw 35cms fall and the good news there is more in the forecast! Monty had an opportunity to head up this morning for some fresh tracks of his own. He spent the morning tracking out all the snow mid mountain and was first in line when Harmony opened. The snow at times was almost too deep for him but he had on his powder skis so he managed just fine. When it comes to fresh tracks, ...

Whistler Half MarathonPosted on January 15, 2014
It is almost that time again, time to dust off those shoes and start thinking about running as the Whistler Half Marathon is just around the corner!

His week started off at the sliding center where, as you can see from the certificate, he got clocked at 101kilometers per hour. Monty, being the daredevil that he is, thought he could go faster in the air than he ...
The Holidays in WhistlerPosted on December 16, 2013
There is no better place to be during this holiday season than right here in Whistler.

A Wonderful Lodge with Beautiful Staff
I loved every minute of our stay here. The location in the village is perfect. The onsite restaurants are lovely. The rooms were beautiful. Ours was a King Suite - with full kitchen, fridge, coffee maker etc. Wish our stay had been longer.
I hope to return to Whistler in the not too distant future and I will not bother looking at any other accommodation options as this place ticked all the boxes.
