Whistler Winter 2010 - day 1

It is a winter snowland.  Big soft flakes are floating down in a most romantic fashion.  Noelle starts laughing and says – Mom look at your dandruff.

We are at the Snow Goose.  Our home for the next week at Whistler.

Mission number one.  Unpack the car.   We aren’t exactly light packers.  Here is what we schlep up the stairs, around the corner, up the stairs into the condo.

  1. Four large stuffed duffle bags
  2. One suitcase
  3. Three laptop bags
  4. One laptop rolling bag
  5. Five ski boot/helmet bags
  6. One Nike workout gear bag
  7. One extra black tote
  8. Two kindles
  9. One xbox, controllers and games
  10. One PS3, controllers and games
  11. One Costco box of juices
  12. One binder of DVDs
  13. Three back packs
  14. Two SKWC shopping bags filled with
  • Granola
  • Fruit snacks
  • Oatmeal
  • Popcorn
  • Crumpets and English muffins
  • Macaroni & cheese
  • Applesauce
  • Tortilla chips
  • Rice cakes
  • Three containers of Trader Joes cookies
  • Tamari almonds
  • Trail mix
  • Salsa
  • A couple of hot coca bags

15. One Soda Stream water carbonator and essences

16. Oh, and the one-third remainder of yesterday’s Red Velvet Cake


We then go to dinner at the Brewhouse.  Alas.  They have new chairs, new tables and a new menu that does not include Edamame stir fried in chili oil with ginger – our favorite.  We are too polite to walk out.  Eat the meal.  Only Noelle’s is good – macaroni with blue cheese.  We then head over to the Market Place for more stuff.  Leave twenty minutes later with three more bags of food, candles and presto logs.  Cristina, Noelle and Ed play Black Ops, violent X-Box game.  Alysha and I are here at the dining room table on our peaceful computers.  The candles are lit.  The fireplace is going.  Oh, and I just ate a piece of Red Velvet Cake.

Ahhh, the joys of roughing it in the wilds of Whistler.
