bike park in Whistler Mountain

Whistler Mountain, a place I really love, even this village seems to be the matter why I'm divorced now.

Wake up in house heidi and have a fantastic breakfast with cereals, milk, toast, egg and ham. After breakfast we are driving down to the village. Today there seems to be any kind of a bike downhill event.

Dear downhiller out there in the world, believe me, I am a biker, no downhiller, but a biker who goes out at least three times a week to bike, and I never saw such a huge and just cool downhill environment like here in Whistler (check out the photos and remember, this is just a small part of the whole park).

Nevertheless we are here for hiking, and therefore we plan to climb the mountain (whistler mountain) by peds.

We only needed 3 hours to climb the 1100 m altitudes. But the fantastic thing was, that we met 4 different black-bears while we hiked up the hill (see the photos).

Now two of my deepest wishes came true, start hiking and jogging in ca and watch a bear in the wilderness. I'm pretty happy about that.

In addition, I probably fell in love to my very first girlfriend. I met her in Lucerne a few days before I left Switzerland, and now we wrote an uncountable number of sms to each other. You may know, or even not, but I never forgot that girl. And as of today, I think I'm in love again....

If this is true, the third wish would probably come true, also. Thank you.

But independend of any kind of love, I really recommend to visit Whistler. It does not care if you do that in summer (bikers) or in winter (boarders and skieers). You will find a fantastic village and you will have a great time, independently of any temperature.

Whistler mountain is definitely a must see and stay for a few days location. And this is true for at leas 365 days a year.

For those who have been here earlier, please find on the photos the info: whistler mountain and blackcomb will get a direct connection – Jippiiieeehhh*

I love Whistler and I will probably come back to here in 2010, when the olympic winter games will take place in Whistler.
