Technically, I don’t get spring break any more. But spending the weekend in Whistler with my ladyfriends is a very spring break thing to do. The highlight? Snowshoeing along the trails that weave around Lost Lake to Scandinave Spa.
Nestled in the forest (though still reachable by car), it’s a series of hot and cold (like, really, really cold) pools that you jump in and out of like you’re a native Finlander.
Sounds delightful, right? And we sound pretty hardcore for trekking there on snowshoes, don’t we?
Well, we’re not. I was on the trails for all of four minutes before I fell in a tree well. And this is hardly a vigorous sport. I mean, really.
That’s why I wore my Nibz bandana — so I at least looked like I know what I’m doing. Made in Vancouver, these triple-layered bandanas were designed by snowboard cross athlete/Whistler local Sara Niblock. They gave me one to test out (love it! Thank you!) and now that they’ve seen how hardcore I really am, they’ll probably take it right back.
