      On Saturday, May 10 we headed to Whistler, B.C. for our annual ski trip with our kids, Kristie, Michael and Kristie`s friend Eric.  It started out abit foggy but then it around noon it cleared up and we had great views of the surrounding mountains. Blackcomb is the only mountain open in the spring and we spent most of our time on 7 th Heaven and the Jersey Cream chairlifts. But our best skiing of the day was when we headed into the north facing T-Bar bowls and down Dakine and Glacier Drive to the base of Jersey Cream. There is still time to head to Whistler-Blackcomb for their spring ski season which ends on May, 26. Its a great time to ski with temperatures in the valley in the mid teens and corn snow in the alpine. For more information see: and for more of what is happening at Whistler see:
