Whistler Adventure

Whistler Adventure

Lauren planned a birthday adventure in Whistler, British Columbia. Can you say best girlfriend ever, eh? We had a lot of fun. We ate, we drank, we went bear hunting, and zip lining! Best birthday ever.

Going to Whistler in between seasons was a great deal, but the downside was a few of the things and places we wanted to check out were closed, but overall I would highly recommend going.

Hits:

  • Ziptrek zip line tours – a little hiking with cool suspension bridges in the trees and a lot of zip lines. The longest being 2,000+ feet.
  • Crepe Montague – we ate breakfast here TWICE.
  • Pure Bread – they sell coffee and bread items. Get an almond croissant.
  • Portobellos – we only had coffee and donuts here, but I’ve been here before and it is TITS.
  • Garibaldi Lift Co – Gorgonzola waffle fries
  • Shopping – the exchange rate is 27% in our favor. AMERICA!
  • Hotel deals – 3 days, 2 nights was under $150
  • Squamish – stop and ride their new gondola, the views are amazing.
  • Sea to Sky highway – LOVED driving this road again in the Saabaru.

Misses:

  • The Peak 2 Peak gondola was closed 😦
  • La Bocca – meh food, skip this place
  • Not seeing a bear
  • Showcase was closed
