Summer in Whistler

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

After weeks of cold weather in June and July, summer is finally here!

Today, a team of Advantage EJ students and teachers set out towards Pemberton, BC for an action-packed day complete with hiking, sightseeing, an international-style picnic and strawberry picking.

The team explored Nairn Falls, a popular hiking area and camping destination just 25 mins. from Whistler and finished the day with satisfied stomachs, full of delicious cuisine from the picnic and strawberries from Pemberton’s NorthArm Farm. A truly remarkable day!

Another Epic day for Advantage E/J students on Whistler Mountain

Tuesday, January 11th, 2011

Advantage E/J students were all smiles today, as they went up Whistler Mountain with local pro-snowboarder, Ryan.  They were taken to the best runs and “secret spots” around the hill and were able to spend the day practicing English while having fun. This was the second time this season so far that the crew has gone for a group ride.

AEJ students are in for a special treat as next week they will be heading out with Tribal Ski Team Coach and Director of TMC Freeriderz, Yosuke Henry Hamazaki. Yosuke is a well-respected coach that has worked with a number of the world’s top freestyle skiers including World Cup athletes and Olympic Champions. The students are sure to learn a few techniques but more importantly they are set for another awesome day on the mountains. Have fun everyone!
