Return to Whistler

 Views from the Peak2Peak Gondola.  Amazing.

We came, we saw, we skiied.  After checking out what our friendly neighbors to the North had to offer in the summer, we knew it was only a matter of time before we would be back and we got an offer we couldn't refuse - free lodging and good friends (McArthur's) to spend time with.  We swapped real school for ski school and I would do it again in a second. I learned that I prefer skiing to snowboarding, and we were spoiled with perfect weather conditions and tons of runs to choose from.  The best part was probably skiing with the kids.  We rode to the top of Whistler mountain, skiied down a bit, took a lift back to the top, crossed over to Blackcomb mountain on the 1.88 mile Peak2Peak Gondola and skiied down to the base with Avery and Miles.  Here's a little (shaky) glimpse of our adventure:

That looks like an incredible trip! Way better than a real school week! Reminds me of our crew of 3 in the mountains. Fun times! Loved the videos.
