The end of 2010 is here & I find myself surrounded by snow & attempting to regain my appetite after getting some sort of 24 hour bug! (though it was more like a 36 hour bug! sadface!)
Yesterday was a complete waste of a day – including the rather pricey snowboarding lesson, lift pass & gear that had already been purchase &/or hired!
I was a trooper though, & I headed up with the others in an attempt to struggle through it…
This was taken right before I headed down the mountain. Snowboarding would have been fun, but my lack of sleep and general un-wellness made even walking a mission…but our instructor did say I had the best technique out of everyone…so that’s a plus!
This morning we were up & at the top of the mountain before the sun had risen, which was challenging in my state, but the view was incredible
Mr. Moon was still up when we arrived at the peak
and the sun was just beginning to rise as we headed in for breakfast
everyone tucked into the buffet style brekkie & I managed to eat a few pieces of pineapple and some bacon…definitely a plus!
The cool kids headed outside to do some runs, so we headed up to the roof to get a better view
Once the photographing of shadows began, we thought it best we head to meet up with the others and hit the snappy Peak2Peak gondola….
we managed to jump on the glass bottomed one…which gave us a beautiful, but slightly eerie view to the valley below
Blackcomb was stunning!
We headed in for a hot choccy to warm up
I even had extra cream! (a definite sign that I was feeling better!)
the cool kids left us once again, clearly embarrassed by the fuss we were causing over them (pretty sure there were over 6 cameras pointed in their direction! No pressure or anything.. 😉 hehe)
We farewelled the mountain & shuffled back via Peak2Peak to head back home
Now it’s time to rest up to make sure we actually last long enough to see in the New Year!
Have a great night & happy celebrating
