Spent the weekend skiing in Whistler with Celia, Jourdan, and Kate, so can knock that one off the bucket list! It was excellent, though preposterously expensive for a day or weekend pass. They have quite the racket going up there where because they have two mountains they basically make you pay double. Even though there is just one of you, so you still can only do a normal amount of skiing. However, they had tons of light, fluffy powder which was a novel treat and something I am not used to at the local WA spots.
Anyway, this bit of training arises from one of the chairlifts breaking down, so we had to either wait an indeterminately long time or hike 1.2k uphill in order to continue enjoying the fruits of gravity. By my reckoning it was just enough of a pain in the ass to be loggable.
