Whistler, B.C.: A Resort Town

It took us longer than expected to reach Whistler. There happened to be a bike race going on and they’re also heading to Whistler! Tough to get parking too! But patience is a virtue…

It was past lunch time when we finally sat down to eat at the Old Spaghetti Factory. Servings were big with reasonable prices. I also contemplated on buying the Herschel bag. But they don’t have the color that I want. The mid volume Little America’s already a big size for me. I’m glad I was able to check the size personally, since physical stores are only found in Canada (I think). Mom bought the foldable one, which was very convenient for travel.

Fortunately, we were still able to catch the last ride up the mountain. It was really chilly up there, and I was smart enough not to bring a jacket. The Whistler hosted the 2010 Winter Olympics and Paralympic Games. They still even have the Olympics logo.

It was a long gondola ride up the Whistler Mountain. Since there were fewer people going up, we had the cabin to ourselves. This reminded me of our gondola ride in Lake Tahoe.

After one gondola ride to another, we reached the Blackcomb Mountain via Peak 2 Peak Gondola. We were able to spend probably less than 30 minutes before they called out that the ride’s closing. How lovely’s the view though?
