Whistler Winter Holidays

Snow Shoe Adventure 1Spending the Holidays in Whistler is something I look forward to every year. We moved here when I was 16, and have celebrated Christmas together here ever since. Growing up in sunny South Africa, I never imagined I would be experiencing a White Christmas every year. I feel so lucky to call this place home, and enjoy every moment of the festive season in winter wonderland.Snow Shoe Adventure 11Snow Shoe Adventure 31Snow Shoe Adventure 7Snow Shoe 41Snow Shoe Adventure 2One of the things we do every December is go on snow shoe adventures. Whistler is a premiere winter location, ideal for hiking, walking and exploring. The landscape was glistening with fresh snow during our stay, creating the most magical setting. Snow shoeing is a really great work out, especially on these excursions. It definitely felt good to break a sweat on the mountain in between delicious Christmas dinners!

We have a few more days before we’re back to reality. I’m looking forward to spending some time planning and prepping for 2019. It’s an exciting year ahead, and I can’t wait to share the next chapter.

Wishing you a wonderful rest of the Holiday season and cheers to a Happy New Year.

    • Thank you Corina! Happy New Year!

  • I’ve never heard of snow shoeing before, it looks and sounds like fun and a great workout! I love the snow, but I must admit, I do get tired of it after the 3rd or 4th snow storm, lol. I love spring and summer has grown on me after having a summer baby and doing so many cool things. But, I’m sure If I really look, there are a lot of fun things to do in the winter, too. Thanks for sharing these gorgeous photos with us and I hope you have prosperous 2019!



    • Oh you would love snow shoeing. Such a fun and easy easy to get out on the mountains. Will be perfect when the girls are a little bit older. It definitely helps me love the snow when the trees and scenery are this wonderful!
      Happy New Year, all the best for 2019 to you too!

  • Oh my goodness, the snow! This is an absolute winter wonderland – how dreamy! Truly loving your ski look by the way, and the pop of pink from the hat. Too cute 🙂 Happy 2019!
