    Five days in a row of skiing Whistler Blackcomb, a healthy amount of beer, a day trip to Vancouver, and catching a cold make for an exhausting vacation...but was it ever worth it. Here are some pics.

    The skiing here is more challenging than anywhere I've skied before. Blues are often steeper than I'm used to. Blacks are usually full of ice, giant moguls, and even rocks. Double black=cliff. I didn't push myself like I usually do.

    And finally, tourist information the way it should be done. Take note, Toronto!

    Great pics, VAN is one of my favourite cities. My son and I went to Whistler a few years ago in the summer, he torn down one of the hillsides on a bike.
