We went to Whistler, passing by through Squamish as a girl’s trip. It was a very spontaneous action as I saw the post of a girl in a Facebook group stating they still have a spot in a car if someone wants to join for the weekend and this is what I did. Knew none of them before but it was a fun multicultural group with a Dutch girl, a Columbian (hope I remember that correctly) and another German girl. The trip happened November last year. I was holding onto this blog as my original idea was to post it together with the pictures from this Winter as another girl’s trip, this time with twelve girls (that I know some of) was planned in March and before that I wanted to ski there as well. Unfortunately, everything got cancelled due to the pandemic and my knee that canceled further skiing until the End of February… Therefore, sadly no winter pictures… I hope that I can visit again when this is all over! So, this is why this blog followed so late and now, thanks to the pandemic, I have time to sort, edit and upload pictures finally.
The sea to sky highway is a scenic highway taking you in just two hours all the way from Vancouver to Whistler passing by the howe sound as water source on one side and mountains and forest all around you. It is stunning and that even though, sadly again, a little like on Vancouver Island, we caught a rainy and misty weekend. Still, I really enjoyed it! We started Saturday morning and were back Sunday night. On the way we did diverse stops on the way to Whistler as well as on the way back. In the blog the spots are not in ordered in the order we went visiting them but ranging south to north. I hope you enjoy.
Can’t really tell much about Squamish, but I hope I will have the shot to visit it again this summer for some hikes and maybe even some wild water rafting. It is a hub for adventure sport. But these are the spots we visited on the way through.

Look at these trucks! I would love to drive one just to try. Must be a great feeling. (Click on the pictures to enlarge)
I really don´t know what makes this lake so green, must be some algae, but it makes a stunning look! I was all quiet and misty with unique patterns on the water.

Small city, in fact smaller than expected. In winter focused on winter sports for tourists from all over the world and in summer on adventure sports, hiking and also wellness.
