Weekend in Whistler

Dan & I spend August long weekend in Whistler. We didn't go for any particular reason, just to get away and have a change of scenery! We stayed at the Hilton, which was great because it was right in the middle of the village and we could just walk wherever. Our hotel also had an outdoor pool, which we were looking forward too a lot, since it was the HOTTEST weekend, but alas, the pool was closed for maintenance! Ah well, at least we had out hotel snacks!

On Saturday, we went up on the gondola to Whistler mountain, went on a hike (I learned that I still don't like hiking!) and took a ride on the Peak2Peak gondola over to Blackcomb mountain, and then rode the chair lift back down. We also had the best breakfast on Saturday morning at Crepe Montagne! Delicious! We recommend that you go there if you are in Whistler.

This was where we turned around on our hike. As in, went back uphill. 

Another fun thing was that Whistler village had free concerts both nights we were there. Fun times! (We really wished we could have stayed for Great Lake Swimmers on Sunday night). 

How was your long weekend? Any crepe eating and snowball making?

  1. Looks like a grand old time! I like your choice of hotel snacks and no, who likes hiking?! A rare and odd breed, that's for sure.
