Photos from last year's trip to Whistler

Moved to Whistler BC to be a ski bum, woohoo!

While here I will be working my regular job part time, and snowboarding the rest of the time.

I spent the first few weeks here at the Shoestring Lodge before moving into my new home on Mar 1.

I'm really happy to be here. I think I'll spend much of the summer here as well (mountain biking etc.)

I set up a web log for stories about my life on the road.
