Biking along the Lillooet River

One of the greatest things about living in the mountains, is that adventure is very easy to come across. One of my favourites is to explore on two wheels. Living only a stone’s throw from the Lillooet River provides a great opportunity to easily explore this wide expanse as it takes volumes of water from the mountains down through the Harrison Watershed and out to the ocean. The North Bank The dirt biking gear goes on, bikes are...

Journey to the Kootenays

This post is for all those friends who live for two wheels on the asphalt. Living in the Whistler, I am lucky to live on what is often voted one of the best biking roads in the country – The Sea to Sky Highway. She is a winding thing of beauty which attracts and woos bikers from all over, and I get to ride this stretch of road every single day. The bikes are prepared – a full tank of gas, tire pressures assessed, and...

Shredding North America’s Largest Ski Resort: Just another day in Whistler

It’s 7:30am, and my iPhone has gently been buzzing intermittently for the past half an hour.

And suddenly, there it was – the reason for my early wake up on my weekend – a glorious 32cm had fallen overnight. Time to get up, and get...

Wine Tasting in Canada’s Okanagan Valley

The Okanagan is Canada’s answer to Napa Valley. When you think Canada, you don’t necessarily think of wine. Well – they’ve got a wine industry, and it’s really, really, good. I make a point of visiting the region at least once each year, and whilst I do try and visit new wineries each time, there’s a few staple wineries which I can’t help to go to year after year. Nk’Mip – Osoyoos...

6 Highlights of Rio

For some, a 13 hour flight is a long way to go just for a week. For me, the flight is all part of the fun! As usual, my destination choice started on United’s website looking at several different options, and I was fortunate to come across some well timed flights from Vancouver to Rio with a 1-stop in Houston that I could apply my upgrade certificates to and get a comfortable overnight ride down south on their new Boeing 787...

British Columbia’s Joffre Lakes

I woke up this morning feeling like an adventure. The sun was shining, and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. First stop – The Grocery Store, for a quick fuel up and a couple of supplies for later in the day. It didn’t take long for me to decide that I wanted to ascend the Joffre Lakes hike. It’s relatively easy (and I have hardly done any hiking this year), and I haven’t been up there in a few years. Not...
