My brother and father joined me to Vancouver for the week, we went skiing to Whistler for few days. After more than 4 years without skiing, the first slope was a bit chaotic. But I managed. It is said that skiing is like biking; you cannot forget!
The second day, we got welcome by a strong snowfall which was pretty fun to ski with. I only brought my iPhone and the wide Moment lens in case I wanted few souvenirs shots. It turned out, I shot quite a lot with it! We went back and forth between Whistler and BlackComb and spent most of the time skiing into the woods! I also had quite a bit of fun with the Portrait Mode. Now it can get a bit fussy on the edges sometimes but the overall result is quite impressive.
We were still under heavy snow but left Whistler anyway, to go back to Vancouver. Great Drive under the snow, very scenic! Until we arrived to a huge line of stopped cars… Then I found out; they closed the highway due to accidents between Whistler and Squamish. We waited for an hour, engine shut down. The road was supposed to be closed until 10pm. So like many others, we turned back to Whistler. After a walk in the village, we ended up at the Irish pub for the night. Better to wait there with food and drinks than being stuck in the car. Good thinking as they didn’t open the road until midnight!
We left Whistler for the second time that night, still had to wait a bit before Squamish and made it home around 1am. Fun times!

If possible, I would recommend to stay into a hotel located in Blackcomb. 10min after the village of Whistler, it is right on the slopes!
