Whistler, B.C.

DSC04637
We were in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada for our vacation — site of the 2010 winter Olympic games

DSC04654
We rode gondolas to six and seven thousand feet, then started our kid-friendly hikes from there

The summit of Whistler Mountain is a little bit busy…

DSC04664
…But soon enough there was this

DSC04667
And this

The peak to peak gondola took us (stunningly!) from Whistler to Blackcomb Mountain

Beautiful spot for a picnic

Landry loves a map these days

We stayed on the ground for our middle full day in Whistler

We hiked to a tiny, charming lake called Swim Lake

Some of the terrain was serious

While other parts were conducive to ninja moves

Back at our hotel (We swam for 4 afternoons in a row and I only have one picture to prove it!)

Hidden and no longer being sought

Masterful at line-ups

Day three: wearing sharks and ready to roll

There was a mountain bike festival on the mountain while we were there, which at times meant we could see flips and spins from the gondola!

Need I mention that the weather was absolutely perfect for our trip?

Some of the lakes and rivers in the area are a strange (but beautiful) aqua blue from glacier runoff

On this day we hiked down to Harmony Lake

DSC_6018
We spotted our second marmot! See the furry creature on the middle-distance rock to the left?

Landry was the youngest trail walker by far

DSC_6027
Possibly the muddiest, too

Another scenic, alpine lunch on Blackcomb

No kidding!

Friends of ours from Wellesley retired a couple of years ago to Whistler. (She’s Canadian by birth though had lived in Boston for decades.) The pictures she posts to Facebook – wow! Year-round gorgeous. It looks like you had the most perfect conditions.
