INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend?

This weekend was a very busy one for the INTERNeX PR Team! Katie and myself were given the great opportunity to go on a Fam Trip with Discover Canada Tours. The trip included a day in Whistler followed by one night of camping in Lytton.

In Whistler we visited the Squamish & Lil’wat Cultural Centre to learn more about the two different Native heritages and how they have come together over the years. I definitely received a whole new insight into these two cultures and for those who are interested I would certainly recommend it! The afternoon followed with the peak 2 peak gondola rides to the top of Whistler Mountain and then across to Blackcomb Mountain. The views were incredible and we really felt as if we were on top of the world as the mountains stretched further than the eye could see. I even saw my first little black bear from one of the gondola’s!

Then it was time to make our way over to Lytton. A beautiful desert town about 3 hours from Whistler with some very scenic routes on the way. After camp was set  up at the HYAK camping grounds we received  a delicious BBQ dinner and eventually proceeded to the warm campfire where we ended our night quite early in order to prepare us for the exciting rafting adventure in the morning.

Sunday morning was an unforgettable one. As Katie and I got all strapped up for the white water rafting on the Thompson River we had no idea what to expect. The water is currently at its highest level it has ever been and we were told the water and the rapids were extremely wild right now. It was incredibly fun and safe to say we made it out alive with big smiles on our faces 🙂 Pictures will be on our Flickr Page shortly.

To round-off an amazing trip we spent the afternoon at Hell’s Gate; the narrowest part of the Fraser River where the water is traveling at its fastest speed and the rapids are deadly.

It was a beautiful weekend, and for anyone else who is interested in taking part in Discover Canada Tours’ Rafting Trip to Lytton I would highly recommend it! For more information please visit their website.

Thank you so much to Discover Canada Tours for this amazing opportunity.

Get Whisked Away!

British Columbia boasts one of North America’s number one ski and snowboard resort and the host Mountain Resort of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic & Paralympic Winter Games! Whistler B.C. serves up more vertical feet, advanced lifts and various ski terrains than any other resort on the continent. In addition to that, add on three glaciers, 16 alpine bowls and North America’s longest ski season and you have yourself one epic ski vacation.

You can ski the Symphony Bowl and 7th Heaven, before having a quick lunch whilst taking in the breathtaking scenery that surrounds you. The Peak 2 Peak Gondola can whisk you 2.73 miles between Whistler Mountain and Blackcomb Mountain in a dizzying 11 minutes. This premier ski resort is a year-round playground. Once the snow begins to melt you can try out a self-guided off the road adventure over 3,937ft of park terrain at the Whistler Mountain Bike Park or learn to wakeboard on Green Lake. However, if moguls, chutes and steeps are not in your vocabulary, you can still appreciate Whistler’s après scene. You can indulge in a candlelit fondue dinner for two at a romantic chalet or rejuvenate at a day spa with a soothing hot oil, shiatsu or Swedish massage.

Browse at over 200 shops and boutiques in the pedestrian-friendly plazas of Whistler Village. And with the village boasting over 90 restaurants with some of the best dining and nightlife opportunities in BC there’s no need head down to the city. Anything ranging from funky sushi bars in the Creek or Village to restaurants serving tapas late into the night and live music that will have you dancing even after a full day of play in the outdoors, Whistler has it all! The public transit runs from 4:40am to 3:30am every day otherwise there are taxis and the free village shuttle…so need to worry club hoppers Whistler has your back!
