A day in the clouds



January 28, 2009     Personal

Each day here in Whistler, I'm amazed a little more...

We woke up this morning to fresh snow (or "pow-pow" as many like to say):) and skied amongst the clouds. It was UNREAL! We started out the day by skiing the black diamond that will be the Men's Super G in the 2010 Olympics. I'm no Bode Miller, but I couldn't help but visualize myself as an Olympian on that run. :) The tricky part was that most of the run was in the clouds, so seeing even 10 feet in front of you was next to impossible. It sure made for a thrilling run though!

Whistler has also become famous for its new Peak-to-Peak gondola that stretches about 2.7 miles and suspends 1,427 feet above the valley, connecting Whistler Mountain to Blackcomb. When it first opened in December, sky-divers jumped from it! Riding it today was, well, crazy cool. :)

Without further adieu, here are some of the sights from today...
