Travelogue – Whistler, British Colombia

Named for the marmots that roam the area and whistle like a deflating balloon Whistler is the largest ski resort in North America and is only a 90 minute drive from Vancouver with the ocean accompanying you almost the entire way.

Originating in the late 1970’s and Winter Olympics host city in 2010, Whistler alongside sister mountain Blackcomb are two imposing peaks joined by an artsy and busy village at ground level.

O Canada

Leaving for Canada 🇨🇦 tomorrow for 10 days out to British Colombia initially to get in some late season snow, and then back east to Toronto for a few days next week leading into returning home for Easter.

I have been to a few places in Canada, but mostly with work or at least for work reasons. I have spent time in both Vancouver, and Toronto a couple of times, but never to Whistler, a scintillating 75-mile drive north of Vancouver I am reliably told.
