I just checked into my hostel. I am staying at the Hostelling International Whistler hostel for the next two nights. This place is sweet. It’s a bit outside of Whistler Village, about 4.2 miles, but they have regular buses to and from quite often. I also rented a bike so I can bike back and forth and check out all of their trails. They have some really neat looking biking trails all around the mountain and I will be sure to do many of them. They also have four mountain lakes in the area for me to check out. As far as the hostel goes I’ll have to take pictures for you because it’s much nicer than some hotels I’ve been in and is very affordable. I’m sitting in their lounge area right now and they have public computers and wifi, many brand new couches, a fireplace, pool table, and a coffee shop. This place was where athletes stayed for the winter Olympics in January and was built for that and then converted to a hostel.
It’s 2 pm my time so I have to get out and do a bunch of stuff but I’ll try to post an update later, probably quite late actually.
Tomorrow I’ll be going up the mountains on the gondolas and taking the Peak to Peak gondola between two peeks. I’m also trying to decide if I should do one of the following: a zipline that spans 2,000 feet and drops 20 stories, a 45 minute glider ride, or rafting (not sure if they call it whitewater rafting but it kinda looks like it.) Well that’s all for now, I’ll check back later. Peace.
