A couple weekends ago we managed to get up to Whistler Blackcomb for a mini snowboarding getaway. We were kindly invited up by the amazing Whistler Blackcomb team to experience some of the 40+cm of new snow that had dropped the night before and stay in a gorgeous room at Lodging Ovations Evolution in Creekside.
Lodging Ovations Evolution Creekside is a ski-in ski-out slopeside resort in Creekside that is just a few minutes from the lifts and has some pretty amazing one and two-bedroom suites.
We managed to snag a sweet 2 bedroom room that had king beds, a full kitchen with brand new appliances, a see-through gas fireplace into one of the bedrooms, and two beautiful bathrooms.
We are definitely planning on coming back and staying again.
After some snowboarding we took some time to unwind at the resort, playing some foosball and air hockey in the games room, and then enjoying the outdoor hot tub/pool and eucalyptus steam sauna.
But of course, when you look outside your window and see fresh snow… there’s only one thing to do…
Get on the hill!
We had a blast. It was so good to get back on the board and ride all the fresh pow.
It wasn’t too crowded and we were able to enjoy both Whistler and Blackcomb by taking the Peak2Peak gondola.
Our boards were very happy to be used
We took a quick break for lunch at Dusty’s in Creekside.
A little warm-up with some hot chocolate and Bailey’s!
We met up with friends after lunch and ended up riding Whistler the rest of the day.
Movember was in full effect.
A great day for riding and I can’t wait to get back on my board and get the snowboard season going!
Oh, and no snowboard weekend trip is complete without a Movember-themed KFC Double-Down sandwich face off. Ridiculous.
