Whistler Village Beer Festival 2014Whistler is a popular destination for travellers and tourists all year long, and while I adore the winter season (and all the snow! and all the skiing!), there’s something about summertime in Whistler that has my heart. It’s a gorgeous and pretty little village full of excitement and fun things to do, surrounded by sweeping mountain ranges.

How can you go wrong when there’s beer added to that equation?

The second annual Whistler Village Beer Festival took place last weekend, it was full of fun debuachery, craft brewing companies, foosball & frisbee, and even a roasted pig dinner!  View Post

How to Pack Light on Vacation

Packing light is an art of practicality and a test in minimalism. As the years pass and we’ve taken more trips as a family of four, I’ve received a first hand education on how to pack light on vacation.

It wasn’t always like this! I’m an ex-overpacker, it’s true. I used to pack almost our entire wardrobes to go on vacation, just to make sure we’d have everything we could possibly need. Each family member would have their own suitcase (that’s four huge suitcases taking up trunk space), plus there would be an additional mini-suitcase for toiletries, a beach bag full of towels, and sometimes I’d need another bag just for extra shoes.

Red Bull Joyride Whistler

All great things must come to an end, and now that Crankworx Whistler has joined that category I want to look back at five days of amazing energy and excitement and share them with you!

Day Six brought with it a charged vibe in the air, furthered by the erratic weather that had low-visibility conditions and wet, muddy terrain added to the already difficult Fox Air DH race course. The riders raced down the A-Line trail, one of the world’s most infamous with 39 jumps and 30 berms, and a 1200+ meter vertical descent – the reputation is well-earned. View Post


Crankworx Whistler

I’m writing this in the hot tub of my hotel, trying to soothe my aching body after the beating it got on the mountain yesterday. I’ll tell you all about my little tumble on my bike in a little bit but first, let’s recap the last few days of Crankworx. View Post


Kidsworx at Crankworx in Whistler

The first two days of Crankworx have been full of fun and exciting events. The opening celebrations started off with the family-friendly Kidsworx Village Crit, followed by the mens’ and womens’ Fat Tire Crit.

The Kidsworx Village Crit is an awesome opening event showcasing the sports’ youngest athletes, from ages 2 – 15. My daughter was super stoked to compete in the Ages 7-9 race and had a ton of fun on . See official results of the Fat Tire Crit on the official Crankworx website. View Post
