With the olympics almost over I can’t help but remember our trip to Whistler in 2004. They had just started preparing for the 2010 olympics and it seemed sort of a hidden jewel to us. I actually got the chance to go back again in the winter a couple years ago and I have to say that I actually had more fun in the summer. It is probably one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. Here are some pics:
We went on a zip line adventure and it was pretty amazing.
What’s amazing is that it’s 60-70F out but there is tons of snow on the glacier on top of the mountain and plenty of skiing to be had in the middle of the summer.
We stayed in the village at the Fairmount chateau whistler which is the nicest place in the village.
Overall I would give whistler 5 stars and would definitely go back, although I would wait for olympic fever to die down…
