Over the weekend, I had the chance to try snowboarding for the first time at Whistler. The weather was amazing – a little on the chilly/windy side, but lots of sunshine!
In my honest opinion, snowboarding isn’t quite up my alley… but to be fair, I only spent 3 hours on the mountain in a beginner’s lesson. Between worrying about going in the right direction and doing as the instructor instructed, I also had to worry about falling over the cliff! I’m not too fond of heights :$
Nonetheless it was an interesting experience. I’m not sure whether I would do it again, but hey, I could always try skiing next time (apparently it’s easier).
After getting off the mountain and still in all our snowgear, le boyfriend and I decided to wander Whistler Village for some happy hour appys… or as they like to call it: “après” (French translation “after”). We stopped at The Citta Bar/Citta’ Bistro for some deliciously crunchy yam fries (my favourite!), hot chocolate, and an absolutely incredible Baked Spinach Artichoke Dip. This was actually quite a lot for the two of us… we agreed afterwards that we probably should’ve just stuck with one appy =P
We stayed at the beautiful Aava Hotel for the night. I loved the rainbow neon lights along their exterior! Not sure if this is usually what the hotel looks like or set up for the Gay Pride celebrations in Whistler the same weekend.
For dinner we dined at the famous Bearfoot Bistro in Whistler VIllage. Stay tuned for my next post for details and fooood pictures =D
