In Whistler All Week

I am in Whistler all week, so the posts will be slower. I skied all day yesterday and today. Rode on the new Peak to Peak gondola- it has 1.8 miles of unsupported cable that hangs between Whistler and Blackcomb which is the longest such stretch in the world. Fun stuff.

You can see a terrain map of Whistler & Blackcomb here.

My goal is to ski every single run on both mountains before I come back to Seattle on Sunday.‚  All 8,171 acres, 200+ runs and 10,000 feet of vertical (5,280 blackcomb, 5000 whistler).

It’s a tough life, but I manage somehow.

Now it’s time for to soak in the hot tub with some imported german beer.
