Harsh travel day from Thunder Bay to Whistler. Flight cancellations, oversize baggage charges, night time driving….but
WE’VE ARRIVED IN WHISTLER.
Here’s the view from our kitchen window.
Whistler [or more specifically the Whistler Olympic Park in Callaghan Valley] is the site of this years World Junior Trials, as well as the site of Nationals 2013.
Hardwood and Ontario Ski Team athlete Jenn Jackson is currently here with me. Ashley Huet and Erin Yungblut of Highlands, Scott Hill of Hardwood and Eli Hayden-Thomas of Georgian Bay Nordic will be joining us later today.
The first race is a Skiathlon on Thursday which will combine both skate and classic techniques.
