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.

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…

You’ve got to love living in a place where you can roll out of bed, stumble your way to the front door and drive a quick few minutes to the base of a world class mountain. Lucky for me, this is how I get to start most of my weekends in winter. The great thing…
