I normally don’t pass on postings like this, as Ezra Levant is quite well-spoken on his own. However, his observations about our Prime Minister playing hooky at Whistler are spot on, and how the CBC gave him a free ride on it (as noted here) provides quite a study in contrast.
I was there in 2007, having decided to treat myself to a bus ride up the Sea to Sky Highway (which is a great experience). As it turned out, while snow was falling up there, Vancouver was having a disastrously huge snowfall, which I only found out when experiencing long delays on the return trip that evening. It was still a great day!
Take a look at these views:
At the hill side of the village, there are the gondolas for going up the slopes:
And the village itself it easy to walk around:
I’ve never been one for the slopes, but the village itself was great. The shops are pricey and the restaurants definitely cater to the kind of crowd that can afford them, which has to be seen to be believed. Definitely worth returning to sometime down the road, to see how the élite get to meet in such environs!
