Olympic Fever :: Part Deux
Do You Hear What I Hear?
It's the world coming and turning their eyes to British Columbia. As the snow falls outside our window, the cars are winding up the sea-to-sky highway making their way to Whistler. They're also circling the airport in 747s from all over the world getting ready to land and go through customs before descending upon Vancouver.
If you'd like a sneak peak of the Olympic mayhem, watch the Today Show. They've been here this week covering many different angles and Natalie Morales has been live from outside the Longhorn (our favorite place for apres ski in Whistler).
We went up on the mountain earlier this week to ski and it was a eerie ghost town. Even though nearly 80% of the mountain is still open, people would rather be sipping toddies in the village than treading the slopes. Not us. We enjoyed a wonderfully sunny day in heaven.
Last night we hit the village again to ride the Olympic wave some more and it was really exciting. We snapped some photos with the Olympic rings and then hit the Bearfoot Bistro to experience the Belvedere Ice Room, where we sampled vodkas from all over the world. Brrrr. It was 30 degrees below zero (C) and I was in a skirt!
More to come soon...
