Making the most of the world famous Whistler Bike Park

I have fallen in love. With a person. With a place. With a hobby. First, the person. He caught my eye, captured my heart and swept me away. He brought me to a place (Whistler) where I reclaimed my passion for wilderness, outdoors and exploration. This is the place where I discovered how much I…

A Gaper Day at Whistler Blackcomb with the Big Love Ball

This was my very first Gaper Day, and I wanted it to be awesome. So naturally, I hired my incredibly inspiring friend @miraecampbell to create a video for our @GoWhistler social media channels, and boy oh boy, did she ever come through. View this post on Instagram That's all, folks. Gaper Day 2016! Another season…

the best lakes and rivers to explore in Whistler, British Columbia

Sure, Whistler is known for it’s iconic ski hill and winter vibes, but let me tell you – summer is where it is AT. There’s a short shoulder season between Winter and summer that runs through April and May – and it’s really neat because there’s still skiing available in the alpine, but the lakes…

British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast and a slower pace of life

It’s not a far jaunt from Whistler to the Sunshine Coast, but when you’re there, you feel like you’re a world away. The pace of life resembles Island life, and sure – you take a ferry to get there, but you’re actually not on an island at all… You’re just on a secluded section on…

tackling fear: Change and taking risks

So, I think you get the point. I like spending time in the big trees on the big mountains. After finding myself spending more time sleeping in a Pathfinder in Whistler this summer than my own awesome apartment in North Vancouver, I found myself dabbling in an interest to make it a more permanent situation….

falling for (the best) life in Whistler, British Columbia

I came to Whistler for the first time completely oblivious to it’s awesomeness. I tagged along with a friend for the afternoon as they caught up with someone from high school, I drank my first Caesar (and loved it) then went home. I thought, “hey, that seemed like a pretty interesting place.” Fast forward past…

cliff jumping in North Vancouver’s Lynn Canyon

If you’ve been to Vancouver in the summer (or any season for that matter) and haven’t been to Lynn Valley Canyon, you’ve missed some kind of boat. Situated nowhere near the downtown core, yet somehow totally accessible to the general public, lies this oasis of blue swimming pools and cliff jumps. We have on our…

Wedgemount Lake, British Columbia: A staircase to alpine heaven

I have these days where I battle between wanting to be alone, and wanting to be around people. Maybe that’s a reason why having a partner or deep friendships is so great. Company without expectation of always voicing thoughts or discussing the weather or the news. Sometimes I like to just be. It’s liberating. That…
