    Micro adventure: a brief break from your routine, often done in the evening hours between when you quit work for the day and arrive back at the office the next morning.

    Last summer we showed you have to plan an overnight local island kayaking micro adventure, and had Vancouverites share photos of the micro adventure that we inspired them to take.

    Whistler Ski And Snowboard Closing Weekend Recap

    The annual Whistler Ski And Snowboard Festival took over Whistler April 8 - 17 and some of our team were able to make it up for the final weekend of activities.

    If you've never experienced the WSSF, it's a great excuse to head up to Whistler and enjoy some excellent spring riding, concerts, art exhibits, film maker viewings, fashion shows, comedy night, roller derby, and more. The festival is packed with showcasing great local and international talent on both the concert stages and the slopes, with multiple ski and snowboarding competitions throughout the event.

    Our weekend kicked off by hanging out with the fine folks at The Adventure Group and Super Fly Ziplines for a zip through the Whistler back country along Cougar Mountain. Super Fly Ziplines boasts the longest and highest tandem ziplines in Canada, and they don't disappoint. Leading into summer adventures, definitely check out these guys and say we sent you!
