One Word to Describe Whistler Blackcomb: Paradise!

Whistler or Blackcomb: Peak to Creek. Classic but so fun.

First time skiing or riding at Whistler Blackcomb: My first time was when I was 18 years old. I came to spend the summer and get to know the infamous "Whistler". I was in the middle of a three year school program back home in Quebec at the time so I had to work hard in the summers to pay for my schooling. I lived out of my car/tent and got a housekeeping job at The Glacier Lodge. I worked 7 days a week most of the summer but I made sure to treat myself to at least one day on the hill. I went up on the Glacier in August and I totally fell in love with it. It was a hot bluebird day and the park was so fun. My face got fully sunburnt and I didn't even get to see what a real winter pow day was like but it was enough to swear myself to move here after school, which I did when I was 20.

Other Interests/Activities: I have a passion for the environment and nature. I also love surfing, gardening, skateboarding, traveling, cooking, learning and exploring anything new.
