Whistler for the Long Weekend!

Whistler for the Long Weekend

The long weekend is fast approaching.  What are your plans??

Whistler for the long weekend is the perfect plan!  Before the back-to-school life-in-the-fast-lane picks back up get up to Whistler to enjoy some late summer activities and beautiful views!

Riding the Sea to Sky Highway to Whistler is breathtaking in itself as you travel alongside those amazing ocean colours and backdrop mountains the whole way up.

Once in Whistler, TAKE IT UP a few notches with activities such as taking the gondola up for some Whistler Blackcomb mountaintop hiking and a memorable ride on the Peak 2 Peak Gondola, or hit the Mountain Bike Park for your adrenaline rush, or take a canoe or kayak down the winding River of Golden Dreams from Alta Lake to Green Lake.  Still have time to spare in your day?  Go for a tree top adventure, zip-lining, or ATVing to fill those adventure gaps.

Or, TAKE IT DOWN a few notches by enjoying a leisurely bike ride or walk along the Whistler’s extensive and peaceful Valley Trail for a picnic at one of Whistler’s amazing lakes, beaches or parks. If you’re looking for some serious down-time, be sure to visit the Scandinave Spa, or book a tee time at one of Whistler’s impressive golf courses, or grab your rod and drop a line for a quiet afternoon of fishing.
Wanting to continue on that relaxation train?  Enjoy a walk through the boutique shops in Whistler Village and stop into one of Whistler’s many award winning restaurants for drinks and delectable eats.

It’s your time to be inspired.  Head to Whistler this long weekend and plan your perfect itinerary.

Vancouver & Whistler Golf!

Time to GET YOUR GOLF ON in Vancouver and Whistler this summer season!
Here are a few great new incentives to get your group together and swing those sticks…

In Whistler, the Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club now has colour GPS systems in their new carts, Whistler Golf Club is sporting new Bent grass greens, and Nicklaus North Golf Course remodelled its signature par 3, 12th hole.

In Vancouver, some local favourites include the University Golf Club, just minutes from downtown Vancouver, Mayfair Lakes, only minutes from the Airport, Morgan Creek in South Surrey with their new club house, and Northview Golf & Country Club with two 18-hole public golf courses and only 15 minutes from the US Border.

And nestled almost right in between Vancouver and Whistler, along the brilliantly scenic Sea-to-Sky highway, is the Furry Creek Golf & Country Club.  A challenging and fun course with panoramic ocean views.

Osoyoos Golf & Wine Trip!

It was a 6:00am start, after dropping the little ones off with Nana & Poppa for their own Whistler weekend adventure, and off we went toward Fairview Mountain in Osoyoos for our 11am tee off.

One of the best courses in BC…beautiful, hilly and fun vertical drops, greens are very undulated, with great views and a nice resort/desert feel to it. Fabulous!

And before following up each afternoon with sun and beach time, we visited, researched and tasted the finest in Osoyoos’ local and lovely wineries. Our favourites of the trip included Hester Creek, Burrowing Owl, Desert Hills, Black Hills and the hidden but quaint Fairview Cellars that can be seen through the trees on the first green/second tee box of the Fairview Mountain Golf Course.
We arrived home with wonderful memories and an impressive assortment of fabulous wines for our collection.
