Driving down the streets of Whistler

Before even parking to check-in to our hotel we had already made the decision that we would not be turning back and risking the drive back to Vancouver.  But we would definitely figure out the best way for our friends to get here.

1st day and we're having troubles already.. NOOOO!! It can't be, we're all so tired and delirious we get a little lost looking for where to check in for the hotel (the check-in is a separate different building from the actual hotel).  We finally make it to the telly and we can't get into the garage =(, finally make it in then when we're trying to get the parking permit for the day A's credit card almost got stuck.  Too funny I know.. so much going on and we're too exhausted to process.

  Our little boarder friend was stuck in Vancouver, we talked to her already.  She would catch a ride with our friend arriving late late late Friday night (who was joining us for a day of boarding on Saturday, and leaving with us on Sunday).  Our LA friend had already boarded his plane before we could get ahold of him to tell him to try and take a shuttle bus up to Whistler.  That stressed us all out like you wouldn't believe.  Everytime we mentioned him, or his arrival in Vancouver or him not knowing we wouldn't be picking him up brought sadness to all our faces.  But we made sure to take care of our dear friend S.  A was on the phone with the shuttle bus company for more than 30 minutes (that was the hold time) and we booked him on the shuttle for an hour and a half after he arrived.

  We just hoped his plane would not be delayed for any odd reason.  So right when 10pm struck the clock our phone alarms rang to remind us all to call him NOW!  He was okay with it, so nice of him to understand =).

That shuttle bus ride which normally would take 2 hours or little more since it is a huge bus took 3 and half hours (i think) so that goes to show just how crazy the snow was falling.  Also, we were able to convince the our cute little boarder who loves Vancouver sooooooooo much to take a shuttle bus ride first thing in the morning so that she could go boarding, and not have to waste another day in Vancouver while she could be enjoying Whistler.  Oh the Whistler Adventure begins..
