Chinese New Year on ice!

Today we had a relaxing day up the mountain with some chilled skiing and a long lunch. Although the temperature has rapidly and randomly dropped to minus eleven (!!!) it was a beautiful bluebird day without a cloud in the sky. The wind chill was freezing but underneath my 4 layers, coat, balaclava and helmet, the sun made the day even more beautiful.
This evening after getting some pizza from Fat Joes, we walked to the base of Whistler to watch the Fire and Ice snow dedicated to Chinese New Year. (Another thing ticked off the whistler to do list!) The fire and ice show is a freestyle ski and snowboard show entailing a giant fire ring at the end of a big jump and as this was an especially special one, there were also fire dancers on the slope and a firework display at the end! A great end to the day.
