This is my backyard

At the Peak


Spring in Whistler is a time when bikes become as prolific as skis and boards. The weekend Whistler Mountain closed down for the season, my boyfriend, a few friends and I decided to challenge ourselves to board in the morning and then hit the Whistler Mountain Bike Park in the afternoon.

It was a hot day, but heading up to the alpine cooled us off pretty quickly. After a couple turns in the spring snow, we headed down the mountain and suited up with downhill bikes, body armour and full-face helmets for a bike park extravaganza.

After checking out both sports in one day, we had just enough energy to take a quick dip in Lost Lake and head over to Dusty’s Bar and BBQ for a few pints and some dinner. As we relaxed on patio, a lazy little black bear meandered down the hill and began eating grass just 50 metres away from us. The perfect end to our perfect Whistler day.
