    Whistler-Blackcomb: Please take me back! It was never you. It was all me. OK, really it was them. I had to break up with you to have a couple of kids. But I miss you soooooo much! Let’s reconnect again on Nov 24th. It could be the beginning of another beautiful love affair!

  25. SarahThursday, November 10th, 2011 — 3:06pm PST

    I haven’t been to Whistler since I was a kid — it got so expensive over the years my family couldn’t afford it any more. I’d love to see what it’s like post-Olympics.

  26. KristaThursday, November 10th, 2011 — 3:17pm PST

    My dad is coming to visit from Newfoundland and it will be the first time I’ve seen him in years! Would be lovely to take him skiing in my new home province!

    I’m a prairie girl that just moved to Vancouver last year from Winnipeg where I spent my entire life. I’ve never skied Whistler or even been up there in the winter! My birthday is on Nov 19th and this would be a great birthday gift to accompany the new Burton ski jacket my hubby is supposed to get for me! I got a pair of skiis for my b-day last year. I love these mountains and would never move back to flat land!!!
