Whistler


We went to Whistler, Canada on our honeymoon and loved it. We knew we wanted to go back, but didn't think we would be able to return so soon!
Brett had his last Spring Break this year so we took advantage of it.
We went skiing in Whistler with our friends Nic and Licci. Nic is one year ahead of Brett in his residency.

We spent our first night in Vancouver and got to do a little exploring and see a beautiful sunset.

The guys had fun creating concoctions with the hotel bartender in Vancouver.

He lived in Whistler during the olympics. He made us a treasure hunt to go check out his favorite places while we were there. We had one to open each day!

The drive from Vancouver to Whistler is about an hour. It is called Sea to Sky Highway and it is gorgeous the entire trip.

We took advantage of complimentary wine and cheese tasting at our hotel each evening then hit the hot tub after that!

We got fresh snow every night. This pic is of Nic and Brett on the glacier. We didn't do this last year because you have to take your skis off and hike up a steep incline for about 70 yards. The boys talked me into doing it this year and it was totally worth it. We had the mountain to ourselves and the views were incredible. We ended up doing it every day we skied.
Dinner on my birthday!
Nic and Licci sent us this treat on our anniversary!
Another awesome vacation with some great friends!
