I am not a pro boarder. In fact I am a very late fan of the sport. This is more a diary than anything else, although comments and suggestions are appreciated. I'm going to try to keep track of how I do (and what I do) from season to season; what works and what fails; and how I improve over time.

2012-03-18 We're heeeeeeeerrre!

Posted 03-18-2012 at 09:43 PM by Donutz

After a frantic morning of running around, dropping the dog off at the kennel, packing, panicking, we finally left home around 11:45 -- more than an hour sooner than I expected! We got to Whistler about 2:30 (took time for lunch). The Marquise Hotel, where we're staying, is just off the Wizard Express lift as near as I can tell. It' definitely ski-in ski-out though, so stopping for lunch won't be a problem. Suite is a bit small but certainly nice enough, especially for the ridiculously low price we're paying.

Picked up the Edge Cards, which was really no trouble. We had to show ID to prove we're BC residents, then they printed the passes right there.

After that, we did some shopping. My daughter needed some new gloves and I wanted to look for some upper-body protection. And woo hoo I finally found some. It's a Pro-Tec spine protector, and quite a nice one. A little surprising, since I don't care so much for a lot of Pro-Tec's stuff, but like my knee/shin pads this one seems to be from their high-end line or something. Anyway, $65 got me the XL size, because everything else was too small. I'm not that big -- what're they sizing for, tweens?

Sooooooo, ready for tomorrow.
