Whistler Day Trip Review

Back from the long weekend! Did everyone have an amazing time and do fun stuff? We sure did!

Past Sunday, August 2nd we went on a day trip to Whistler Village with West Trek. Our tour guide Madison did an awesome job!
After meeting up early in the morning our first destination took us to Shannon Falls which is located right before Squamish. There we spent 20-30 minutes checking out the waterfall before jumping back onto the bus for our real goal.
Arriving in Whistler Madison first showed us the top spots and highlights of the village before letting everyone roam free.
In our group we had 3 brave girls doing some zip-lining while the rest of us checked out the highest and longest lift in the world. The Peak 2 Peak Gondola spans over 3km between Whistler Mountain and Blackcomb Mountain with the highest point being 436 meters. Up there we were able to glimpse amazing views!
After this though we were looking forward to another point on our itinerary and that was jumping into the waters of Lost Lake. It was just perfect on a day when we had +30°C! Too bad we couldn’t stick around the lake for too long since it was already time to leave soon after.

Following our departure from Whistler we made another stop but this time at Brandywine Falls. The sight of the waterfall there was even more spectacular than Shannon Falls.

We finally returned to Downtown Vancouver in the evening where everybody said their farewells and went on their own ways.
It was definitely a day well spent! Thank you to everyone joining this trip and of course a big thanks to West Trek.

Cheers!

Whistler Trip Review

There should be a holiday dedicated to all the brave people who show up to work on Mondays, especially after spending an awesome weekend in Whistler.

We started our Trip to Whistler at 7am at Canada place were we waited for the bus to pick us up. However for most of us we had to wake up at 6am, which is way too early for a Saturday morning. We were with 12 INTERNeX candidates and around 10 others. Once we were on the road, everyone had to decide what they want to do during our stay in Whistler. There are so many activities you can choose out; bungee jumping, zip trekking, snow tubing, skiing/snowboarding, peak2peak gondola. Three brave candidates decided to go bungee jumping, a couple others decided to go zip trekking and going on the peak2peak gondola and then there was a group who decided to go and shred the fresh powder snow.

Once arrived in Whistler we had to take a shuttle bus to Whistler Village. Our Tour guide hooked us up with all the tickets for the day and we were ready to enjoy our first day in Whistler. The weather was not to bright, but still everyone had a great time. We met each other again at 5pm to go to the Coast Hotel, take a relaxing moment in the hot tub while it was snowing, have a nice home-cooked dinner and chatting about our day. At 9pm it was time to take the free shuttle bus down to whistler village for a wicked party at tommy Africas.

The next morning most of us slept in and enjoyed the breakfast before checking out and than made their way to the next activities. The once who went on the peak2peak gondola had a beautiful sunny view, the zip trekkers enjoyed a three hour walk/zip trek through the forest on the mountain and the skiers and boarders shredded the fresh snow. At 4pm everyone managed to be in Whistler village and we went for a last beer before heading back to Vancouver.

Who is up for another crazy weekend in the Rocky Mountains next month?
