Have you ever wondered what it’s like to float among the mountains and hover above the clouds? So have we, until we didn’t have to wonder anymore. Welcome to Whistler, British Columbia.
Trading in our surfboards and waves for a weekend, we found ourselves at Whistler Blackcomb, surrounded by fresh powder, peaks, blades, with plenty of KIND Snacks to stay energized on the slopes and for after, unlimited après-ski. With a foot of snow gracing the ground the night we arrived, hitting the slopes in the morning was an experience like no other. The conditions were almost if we were snowboarding on air in a winter wonderland. Snowboarding on and off trails that had yet to be touched and among trees that were perfectly frosted created a rush of ecstasy and adrenalin that left us just wanting more.
There is something so addicting and freeing about truly emptying your mind and solely focusing on the rush of the present. Snowboarding Whistler allowed us to forget about the daily grind and focus on the moment. Surrounded by good friends, a perfect mountain, drinking hot toddy’s in our ski-in-ski-out lodge (pre and post snowboarding) and exploring the local flavor of the dive bars at night made, for an ideal weekend.
