We arrived in Whistler on Thursday the 12th to stay with Jeff Leavitt (Nat's brother). He actually lives on Easy St. with a view of Whistler-Blackcomb. We woke to sunshine Friday morning so we hit the mountain (Blackcomb) for some spring skiing. Kathleen decided to stay back and watch Leo, a dog that Jeff in taking care of. Blackcomb is the only ski hill open in North America at this time of year and we took full zadvantage. We skied from 11am until it closed at 4pm. It was spectacular and we had sun burns to prove it!.

We toured the town and area Saturday then hit Alta Lake in the canoe to try our luck fishing. I got my first ever cutthroat and rainbow trouts and Alex caught a rainbow as wellIt has been raining fairly steady since Friday but we are still hiking around. We tried the stream behind Jeff's place but no luck then we hiked up a ravine with high cliffs and drove around some huge, expensive houses owned by people like Sarah MacLaughlin.

We had a great steak supper last night as we watched the Canucks win then we jumped into Jeff's wood fired hot tub- a nice way to end the day.
It has rained all day today (Monday) so we are making the kids do some math homework then planning on going to a movie later on. The weather report looks good later this week so we plan on staying a few more days. Alex has enjoyed helping Jeff with the 16 chicks he is keeping.
