The last month of the year has started and that means that we will start with the Highlights of the Year 2016. This week we start with January, February and March!
January, the beginning of this eventful year. It started of great with the first PuB NiGHT of the year at the Bismarck Bar. Later that week we had a great time ice skating at Robson Square.
At the end of January we had our first monthly trip. Skiing and Snowboarding in Whistler. The weather forecast was perfect for this weekend, it promised a lot of new powdery snow. On Friday we got on the bus and drove to Whistler on the Sea to Sky Highway, which was a spectacular ride with great views. When we arrived we got ready to go on a night out in Whistler Village. The next day we went up to the Whistler Mountain and started skiing and snowboarding. After a long day we sat down and enjoyed some Après Ski. On Sunday we got up early again to enjoy the mountain again before the bus was leaving at 4.30. Everyone fell asleep on the bus, after a long but fun weekend!
The events in February were again exciting! In the middle of this month we went on a trip to the Rocky Mountains with West Trek Tours. On the first day we had a long ride to make. We got on the bus at 7 am and arrived in Golden at 6 pm. We checked in to the Mountain View Cabins and all enjoyed our evening together. The second day we made our way through Yoho and Banff National Parks. We stopped at Lake Louise to watch or ice skate on the frozen lake and after that we ice hiked through Johnston Canyon and see frozen waterfalls. After that we arrived in Banff and got ready for our first night out together at Hoodoo Nightclub. On the third day we went to Lake Minnewanka and Two Jack Lake. Making our way back to Golden we stopped at Emerald Lake and after that have a big BBQ a
t our Mountain View Cabins. Day four was the day to get back to Vancouver again. But before that we went to the Rocky Mountain Buffalo Ranch and travel through the Okanagan Valley.
Another event was the Special Edition of FlyOverCanada. We enjoyed a flight over Canada and over China! This was in celebration of the Chinese New Year.
And of course we can never forget the PuB NiGHTs and the Beer Pong Night at the Cambie.
In the beginning of March we enjoyed the view over Vancouver at the Vancouver Lookout! And a few weeks later we celebrated St. Patricks Day by going to the parade and have a party at Blarney Stone! It was lots of fun! Also all the other PuB NiGHTs were really nice!
A big thank you to Sandra and Vivien who organized the PuB NiGHTS, events and trips in the first months of 2016!
