After a few days in Vancouver, my family and I headed to the mountains to Whistler. Whistler is quite famous for skiing in the winter and mountainbiking in the summer, and there was definitely no shortage of mountain bikers! We stayed at the Nita Lake Lodge just outside of Whistler, which was absolutely beautiful and made the most delicious gluten free kale infused pancakes (you will have seen a picture of these if you follow me on my social media).
We only had one full day in Whistler so we went up on the mountain and did some hiking, which was lovely. We got some great views and I especially loved the little lake we went to. Unfortunately on one of the hiking trails we had to walk on rocks right next to a cliff so I was concentrating on the floor and didn't notice the massive rock in front of my face, which I proceeded to walk into with full force. For the rest of the day I had quite a headache!
We of course went on the Peak2Peak gondola, which holds all sorts of world records. It has the largest free span between towers (1.88 miles!!) and it's highest point above the ground is 1,430 feet, or 436 metres. I am very afraid of heights and normally definitely do not like this kind of thing but it was definitely an experience and the view was spectacular!
