Going Up Whistler Mountain

Stepping into the sun on Whistler Mountain gave me the biggest goofy grin. Snow carpeted everything. When looking up from town I could only see one section of the mountain range. From up here the endless peaks looked like sharp white teeth in a dark forest jawline - I felt the immensity of where I was.

The Legendary Chairlift Revue is Back and Festive

The legendary Chairlift Revue will return for a holiday-inspired edition on Thursday, December 18 and Friday, December 19 at Millennium Place. Chairlift Revues are a long-standing tradition in Whistler, with the first performances starting in the mid-80’s. It's clear why this production has become a Whistler legacy - it's a way for snow-loving folk to celebrate the shared experiences of conversations and encounters that take place on the lifts.

Touring Huts: Awakening the Yeti

My friend Josh started a conversation about ski touring and the huts that had been built over the last 50 years in back country valleys around this area. He’d been to one last winter and wanted to confirm it was still in action – I was game for the adventure.

Learning to Fall With Whistler Bungee

I was bungee jumping straight after work and I’d decided the night before that I wanted to be hung over for it. When you’re a little ill it’s like there is a bubble wrap on everything around you - I become more nonchalant about impending acts of adrenaline like jumping off a bridge. But still I was prepared to be scared, this was my first bungee jump and ‘friends’ seemed to enjoy messing with my head.

Whistler Through Instagram – The Realities

It looked so tasty.Before coming to Whistler I scrolled Instagram daily on #whistler. The pictures revealed secret spots, action sports and the tourist traps to avoid.

Why We Love Scary Stuff

An attacker comes at you in your own home, instead of going out the front door you choose to run upstairs and secure yourself in a bathroom with a lock that a small child could break. Before you know it a knife (if you're in the city), axe (if you're in the country), or smoke (if you're in a vamp movie) comes through the door. Why do we love watching scary movies? What is it about Halloween that gets our juices going?
