Hiking to Train Wreck!

Thursday, May 23rd, 2019

Fresh green beautiful May, a nice time to take a hike. This time we hiked to the Train Wreck, located south of Whistler and close to the Cheakamus River.It is less than 30 minutes and one of the easier hikes you can do close to town. After hiking, we were able to re-energize with Setsuko’s sushi and Pat’s chocolate cookies. A perfect way to spend the day!

Fun Day with Teacher!

Saturday, April 6th, 2019

It sure goes by quickly! We are now in April and the ski season is coming to an end. Friday was the perfect time to go for a ski with teacher Pat. Nothing is better than practicing your English skills while you are having a blast skiing and snowboarding! Another awesome day to add to the list for Advantage English School students!

 

Congratulations!

Some students are taking CASI snowboard instructor level 1 or CSIA Ski instructor level 1 while they are studying English. With a little help from our teachers and CASI/CSIA instructors Nora and Yuuki have passed their level 1! Congrats you guys, you did a wonderful job! We are so proud of you!

Cross Country Skiing!

Friday, March 8th, 2019

We have just passed the middle of Winter, and we recently had a fun opportunity to try  Cross Country Skiing at the Olympic Park. This was the last day of the season, so admission was only $7.-/person ♪ On a yearly basis, we have students who have never tried cross country skiing before giving it a try for the first time, and enjoy the experience. They were able to get the hang of it with the wonderful support from their teachers and fellow students. Making Special memories from Whistler!

Another snow storm last night just in time for a White Christmas. May 2019 is sure to be a wonderful year for everyone ~! Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!
