After last weekend being so busy and away from home it felt good to spend Saturday cleaning the house, doing laundry, meal planning & grocery shopping. You know, real life stuff! Spending a few hours getting loads of things crossed off my to-do list allowed me to feel better about going out skiing with my husband on Sunday.
Thankfully the snow is pretty much gone where we live (IT HAS BEEN A LONG WINTER!) but there is still plenty of the white stuff in the mountains! This was the last weekend that Whistler mountain would be open for the season and there is no way that I would have wanted to miss that! That’s a very special day if you live in Whistler! I was thinking that it would be super busy and crowded but it was far from it. At first there weren’t even any lines for the lifts. That never happens! There were so many people who were dressed up in fun outfits to celebrate the last day of skiing on Whistler. Everywhere you looked there were people taking selfies and just enjoying the last day of skiing on Whistler mountain. So fun!
After we got a few good runs in and built up a bit of an appetite we skied down to Creekside. It was time to have some lunch outside on a nice warm patio. I enjoyed an iced tea and a nicoise salad with grilled chicken breast. So good and totally hit the spot! It never ceases to amaze me the wide selection of food options that we have on the mountain when skiing. Whether you want vegan, vegetarian, healthy or unhealthy – you will find it! My most favorite thing while we are skiing is a grilled cheese hut – only in Whistler! My beloved Ollie’s will be closing for the season and it makes me sad! Until next year my cheesy lover!
When we were finished lunch we made our way back up the mountain and got some more runs in. By the time that we were ready to come down the snow was starting to feel a bit like pea soup, or a slurpee if you are Canadian! Skiing through that stuff totally makes me paranoid and I didn’t want to finish off my ski season with a trip to the health center. Been there, done that! We took the gondola down to the base and decided to have a hot drink and do a spot of people watching before we made our way home. Whistler village is never a dull place, always something to see!
The weather was beautiful, the skiing was amazing and I got to share this special day with the love of my life. Not too shabby!
