cool. That was a lot of mileage for just a few days. Sounds like a nice trip!

Whistler is definitely a work out. But the day is short, so proper hydration, a rest here and there; with the long chairlifts, then a green run to chill a bit and look at the scene..... is a nice plan to no over-work yourself.

People are super nice in the area as well. Definitely a good place to live if you don't mind rain (and in the case of Vancouver, if you can afford it).

irrballsac Now I have to go home. I'll definitely be back to the area again. I was impressed with some of the shops, and the different culture here. It may be in the running for a place I decide to move to.

irrballsac So I woke up this morning at 3:30, and drove up to whistler. Made it before 8, and did some wandering around while there. Decided to park by base 2, and the Excalibur gondola. Badass spot.

The day started off fucking rough. It was raining a little bit, icy, and foggy. My first run I ate shit, and was glad I had my helmet, but my neck took the brunt of it. I rode down to the bottom and sat for a bit. Got my bearings back as went back out. After it started to warm up a bit it became amazing. I rode ALMOST all of the lifts on black comb, minus a few that were closed, then they opened the peak2peak, so I went to whistler and got lunch.

It looked like a ghost town for most of the day. Not many people, and I will say it definitely lives up to the hype. By the end I the day I did 22.3k vertical, and 26 miles. Only down side is I have no idea how much my phone bill will be from tuning off airplane mode, and using Canadian data. Minus an hour and a half of stopping, I rode first chair to last. I stepped off the mountain drenched in sweat, and leg burn for days. At least this time it was manageable.

Thank you for your hints and advice.

You should reasonably handle an 8hr riding day with a couple of breaks inbetween. Also Hot tubs are nice, booze is bad.

Also, blend in a couple green runs every once in a while throughout the day. Blacks and some blues are hard excercise. Some people can handle it, but if you are feeling shot, then your fitness is not at that level yet.
I'll give this a shot, it's usually hitting powder that kills my legs. I'll try doing more switch, and I've been loading up on water today. Maybe it could be a mix of no sleep/ not prepared enough. I'm not going to try to fix the problem by tomorrow, but it's definitely something I'll be a lot more proactive about in the future. I took some magnesium, have been stretching, and will hit the hot tub in a bit.

I think it worked out best this way, so I can see whistler tomorrow with more snow and spend the day in Seattle today. It was amazing out today here. Tons of sun and active ladies

tanscrazydaisy He explained how some people load up on the hydration powder to get calories for energy.

The model isn't flawed. It is a simple demonstration to illustrate hydration.

The stomach isn't representative of this. The stomach wall has to withstand the corrosive nature of hydrochloric acid we product to aid digestion
