February was pure madness. All work and no play. Caught a cold mid-way. Our mini-getaway to Whistler came just in time. It was a beautiful drive up to our local mountain, although the way down was another story.
On our first night, we had dinner at Bavaria and ordered the Alpine Fondue Meal - which kept us eating for 3 hours straight, no joke. For starters, it was a cheese & wine fondue with bread and veggies. The entree consisted of shrimp, chicken, pork and because I love me some beef, we had that too with chicken broth. Think of it as hotpot but much more expensive. For dessert, we had chocolate with fruits and marshmallows. Yum.
The following night, we had a late dinner/dessert at Crepe Montagne. If you enjoy cozy restaurants and French food, this is a great little place to visit. We shared the Champignons crepe - fresh mushrooms with ham in a cream sauce and the Belle Helene crepe - pear, chocolate sauce, vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. The family at the table next to us were grilling their own bacon which was quite interesting. They serve fondue too, but we've had enough. No more dipping food in liquids for awhile.
The main activity of our trip was snowmobiling. Truth be told, I was scared out of my mind. Thought I was going to drive myself off the cliff. It was tempting to double-up with my man, but I like a challenge and I'm happy I stuck it through. We made a few pitstops at the top. It was incredibly quiet and peaceful. So serene that it just takes your breath away...
