Whistler Ski Trip Report

Natasha and I went on a bus trip with friends of ours from church up to Whistler for a day of skiing. It was cloudy with a bit of rain, but once we got on the slopes, it wasn't that bad. Actually, later in the day it cleared up a bit and was somewhat warm.

This was the first time I'd been skiing in at least ten or more years. Natasha is a pro and has been wanting to take me since we've been married. Neither of us have been skiing on a mountain, so this was an all new experience.

Natasha also got to show off her ski skirt, which I thought was pretty cool. Never seen anything quite like it (see photos below). She actually got a number of other skiers compliment her on it, and a few simply gawked.

We explored both mountains, Whistler and Blackcomb, and because it was only for a day, we barely touched the expanse of the area. The ski hills are so large that without knowing where you're going, you could get lost, but as long as you keep going, you'll eventually end up down at the bottom.

Us on the slopes!

Overall, we had a lot of fun, and got a workout at the same time. We're a little sore now, and it'll likely be worse tomorrow. The ski season is coming to and end soon, but maybe we'll try out Whistler and some other mountains next year.

I had my skirt made in NB to match my jacket... I designed it to my specifications as I had tried different styles skiing. It works perfectly! :).

Glad to hear you had fun :-)
Whistler is a great place to ski and a nice little town to visit even if you don't ski :-D
There are real nice chalets to
stay in and cute little shops!

Could you e-mail me on how to get a ski skirt made? What material and what to wear under it. It looked very nice.

Thank You,

Love Whistler so much! I'm from California and I don't get the chance to get up there too much anymore, but everytime that I do I have a blast! Last time I got some Yaktrax at one of the little corner stores, and I still have them! Funny the things you remember from trips.

I am dying to see the ski skirt mentioned in your blog from a few years back. I've been looking for one all over the internet. Now the pictures seem to have been removed. Is there any way to repost or email me? Thanks!
