Whistler Zip Line

Wednesday, August 19, 2009

Did the Whistler Zip Line on Monday. I was excitedly nervous about doing it - not the heights but the ability to not look like an old dork.

It was Brilliantly Totally AWESOME.

We saw our first Whistler bear. She was a black twoish year old foraging around below the third zip station.

We went out to the Irish Pub afterwards. Had the Guinness Irish stew with a pint of Guinness.

The gondola doesn't open until 10 and the In-Laws were running a bit late. It takes about 25 minutes to go up, so we decided to go up Whistler and back over to Blackcomb via the Peak to Peak just for the ride. We would take a few more pictures then head back to Whistler for a hike. Because we had to be back down in time for the zip we chose to do a stretch the legs mild mile hike to Harmony Lake. Then we had lunch and headed back down figuring it is better to err on the side of a few minutes early then late. The gondola had a couple of slow downs / almost stops on the way down and I could see explaining that we had left in plenty of time but ... The only thing I didn't like was their including the training zip they do in the village (weeds out those who decide they can't do it after all) as one of your 5 zips.

Left Whistler Tuesday morning. Had a great time. Whistler and hot - a new experience. It's going to be interesting to see it with snow next February let alone, during the Olympics.

    That looks like so much fun!!! I live right next to the border. My husband and I will have to get our EDL's so we can go check it out sometime.

    cool! My BF and I have been to Vancouver to visit his sister. I'll have to make sure we do this next time we go! We did a zip line in Costa Rica and loved it. This looks awesome zipping above the water!!!
