The day before we said farewell to UBC it snowed! We went out the night before and it was slightly snowing before I went to bed but in the morning we awoke to a few feet of snow covering the campus! So glad we saw proper snow before we left UBC, it was pretty exciting! Below is a picture of the view from my room and on campus:
My friend Natalie and I went downtown in the morning to buy a few things and it took us 2 hours to get downtown because all the buses were stuck due to the snow! It was absolute chaos. Some of the buses run on powerlines and they were all stuck over intersections, was crazy. After a round trip lasting 5 hours, we spent the afternoon having snowball fights on campus, so much fun!
While it was sad saying goodbye to the people who weren't coming to Whistler with us for Christmas, the rest of us were all excited for the adventures that lay ahead at Whistler and the East Coast! We spent a week and a half at Whistler, staying at the UBC lodge in Creekside. I skied nearly everyday and by the end of the 10 days I could get down a Blue run no problem! Christmas in Whistler was great, the village was all lit up in fairy lights and we had a traditional Christmas meal in the village which was nice. Boxing day was spent skiing, we had a perfect Bluebird weather day that day. I hated that we had to leave just as I was getting good at skiing but I'm so excited for the East Coast adventures that are to come
