After spending most of last winter at home in Ontario and also hopping on some Level 1 trips, it was time for Sandy Boville to head west to wrap up the season. Follow along on his journey of spring skiing across the country.
My girlfriend and I packed up our car and headed to Whistler. We took some extra time along the way to visit family and friends. It’s always nice to be able to break up the cross-continent drive. We made a pit stop in Montana to meet up with friends and take a ski day up at Big Sky Resort.

We also skied at Mt. Seymour in North Vancouver along the way. Mt Seymour is one of my favorite places to ski when the sun is shining and the weather is great. They have a high-speed quad servicing the park with a ton of natural hits all the way down. And on a really good day, you can see all of Vancouver from the top. It’s a very beautiful place to slide down the snow.

Upon arriving in whistler it was time to take advantage of some spring riding. This is the second year I’ve spent my springtime in Whistler and it just gets better and better every year. And when the weather cooperates, it’s the place to be.

Was even lucky enough to get out on a sled this spring and see some new sights in Whistler!
Finally, other than the the spring skiing out west there are so many other activities you can do. Biking, hiking, and swimming (editor’s note: brr!) to name a few. It’s especially cool to be able to camp out in the mountains with a spectacular view and be able to wake up and go skiing that same day.
My good friend Peter and I were also able to link up and film a short edit. Video By Peter M.
