How was your weekend?

Here we are again, surviving through Monday. Did anyone else feel like the weekend went by so fast? I sure did. Maybe it is because the weekend was full of fun things to do. In this blog post you will get a sneak peak of the Vancouver Fashion week and on top of that some views from the Mt Seymour.img_20190323_173411.jpg

The INTERNeX gang visited the Vancouver Fashion week on Friday and Saturday. The event was full on both days so it was pretty hard to find seats at first. During breaks you just had to rush to get a seat and that’s what we did. Both of the nights included a lot of different designers and collections that were interesting to see. One of our candidates, Carolin, volunteered at the Fashion Week and it was nice to hear her voice at the show since she was the one introducing the designers and the names of the collections. The atmosphere at the Fashion Week was really nice. People were showing their respect towards the pieces they liked by cheering and clapping. Thank you to the ones who participated and I hope you all had a great time.

On Sunday the mountains were calling. Sara and me headed to the Mt. Seymour for some snowboarding. It was the season opening for both of us since I hadn’t been snowboarding since last year and it had been a three-year break for Sara. We still managed to survive without any broken bones. The view from Mt. Seymour was absolutely beautiful. We were also super lucky with the weather since it was quite warm, not too sunny and not snowing. The slopes were pretty empty so no lines for the lifts either. We spent a great day at the slopes and ended it with a nice dinner at a restaurant located on the mountain.

I wish everyone a nice upcoming week and remember to join us for PuB NiGHT @ The Mahony & Sons Stamps Landing

What to do on the weekend?

A busy weekend coming up? Don’t have anything to do? Or maybe you just want to do nothing? Well here are some ideas for you no matter what kind of weekend you were planning.

img-20190319-wa0017.jpgVancouver Fashion Week is in town and some of us are going to spend some fashion time tonight and tomorrow. I myself have never been to a fashion week so I’m really looking forward for this. To everyone who is coming remember to dress up, be on time and bring two pieces of ID. I will be updating the Facebook event about schedules so be sure to check that out.

The ski season is coming to an end so if you have the urge to ski I’d suggest doing it sooner than later. Good places to go are for example Mt. Seymor, Mt. Grouse or Mt. Cypress. Don’t worry if you did not bring your own ski gear from home or if you don’t own any because you can for sure rent all the necessaries from the ski resort. Some places also offer a shuttle to the mountain so you don’t have to worry about how to get there.

Another thing you might want to consider of doing before it is too late is going to the Canucks game. There are a handful of home games left and the future depends on how well the Canucks will fight to get through to playoffs. So make sure to buy your tickets and go cheer the Canucks for win!

Btw you can find an event for the Rockies Trip now in Facebook, make sure to check that out. I wish a great weekend for everyone!

Smart Saver Vancouver

Dear ski and snowboard fans, April is just about to start which means that the winter sports season is nearly over… So, take the last chances to grab your skis or your snowboard and hit the slopes. Since a day on the mountain can be quite expensive, here are some tips and tricks to save some money.

cypress week 5

Before you take the gondola up the mountain, it is worth checking the website Liftopia.com. There is often a broad range of offers for discounted lift tickets, if you buy them in advance. Sometimes, there are even great discounts that include rentals already. Another website that has some good offers is Groupon.com. Currently, you can score a deal for rentals on Grouse Mountain, for example.

Mount Seymour is offering a special offer called ‘Carload Wednesday’. You can ski on Wednesday nights for only $99 per car. So, if five people fit in the car, you only pay less than $20 per person for the lift ticket. Hiring a car is not that expensive in Vancouver, so if you gather some people, it can be totally worth it! No panic for those without a driver’s license: you can check out the Facebook group ‘Seymour Mountain Rideshare’ where people are offering rides for a small fee.

If you want to head to Cypress Mountain, which is my personal favourite by the way, you can take a shuttle bus from downtown for only $20 (students) or $22 (adults) for a round trip. The bus takes you directly to the ski resort, very convenient!

A must-do trip for all skiing fans is of course the famous resort Blackcomb in Whistler. Here, it is worth it to buy a lift ticket beforehand online via their website whistlerblackcomb.com. You can save the most if you purchase the tickets more than a week in advance. So, plan ahead and score a good deal!

Last but not least, it is also worth it to check out shops that offer winter sports supply. At the end of the season, many clothes and skiing supplies are on discounted sale now. This is your chance to already get new gear for the next season!

There are many ski and snowboard fans in our INTERNeX crew, so why not team up and go on a day trip together? I hope that you can score some good deals and enjoy the beautiful mountains on your ski or snowboard!

See you at tonight’s PuB NiGHT at Malone’s!

INTERNeX Canada: The picture of the week

Recovering from last night yet? I hope you all had a blast at our Pub and Club Night last night and that you came out to party with us one last time! (Although this hopefully isn’t going to be the last time)

We went snow tubing at Mount Seymour last weekend and it was seriously so much fun. The weather was perfect and when you’re with a great group of people, you know you are going to have a great time no matter what you do. The best part of snow tubing, other than sliding down the hill, was the tube lift! I tried walking up the hill afterwards and I was dying. It might not look very steep from the top, but when you are half way up the endless hill, you wish you took the lift instead!

Want to join in on the fun? Come to our weekly Pub night this Wednesday and our Granville Island Brewery Tour next Saturday!

Cheers,

Queenie

INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend? Snow tubing at Mt. Seymour!

The weather this past weekend was so nice and beautiful! It was definitely a change from the dark and rainy winter months, but of course it was still very cold.

And for those of you who went snow tubing with us at Mount Seymour last Saturday, you all know what I’m talking about! The sun was shining down on us and it was such a breath taking view on top of the mountain.

When we lined up to go snow tubing, my heart was pounding and I was dreading my turn. I thought to myself how I should’ve just stayed behind. But when I went down the hill, it was so much fun!  Everybody who came out with us definitely enjoyed themselves.  There were quite a few lanes that you could go down and I found it amusing how each one had its own name.  For example, one of them was called Fast Freddy and another one was known as KamiKaze.

Although the lineup was long and left us with limited amount of time, it was such an awesome day to be up at Seymour. If you didn’t want to wait in the huge line at the tubing lift area, you had to trek up an insane hill pulling your snow tube at the same time. I only walked up once, but I think everyone would agree that it was more worth it to just wait in that big line. 

I couldn’t think of a better way than to end the already perfect day by watching the gorgeous sunset on the bus, driving down the mountain. Everybody had their cameras out (including me) and was all in awe.

For the rest of my weekend, I just spent it relaxing but I really needed it after such a busy week. I hope you all had a great time on the weekend and went outside to enjoy the beautiful weather in Vancouver.

Let’s all hangout again at the pub and club night at the Pint Friday January 25th! You should definitely come out to this event as it will be a farewell party for our two amazing PR interns Irene and Queenie.

Have another great week everyone!

Cheers,

Flora
