Lost Lake is the largest lake in Whistler, Canada. It is in the winter season when it comes to the ski season. From the cold world of snow to the lost lake, it seems to be a romantic and pure world.
The scenery here is beautiful and magnificent; the neighborhood is friendly and welcoming. This beautiful lake is covered by the reputation of Blackcomb and Whistler Mountain, and is not a local star. However, I personally walked into it and felt its unique beauty. The story about the lost lake is intertwined with the world;
winter lost lake, although the surrounding environment is a bit cold, the lake still has a pleasant view. Beside the lake, people walk along the morning with comfortable air. Some masters train their own dogs to learn to swim during the cold winter days. In the blue lake, the dogs are free to tumbling, and the white snow mountains in the distance are faintly visible.
Among the lakes, although the water temperature in winter is low, but various birds such as swans and pelicans still inhabit this place, accompanied by distant white snow mountains, which make the whole lake dotted with extravagant romance.
The villages alongside the lake have witnessed the history of the lost lake. The small trees along the road turn into dense forests that are mutually shaded, paving a path full of vitality, and also a great place to walk freely and get close to nature.

Norway Fjord Self-driving makes me feel the ferry fun of getting on the boat and taking a boat. The west coast of Canada has a fascinating fjord, wide straits and pristine forest coasts that can be viewed from different angles on a ferry.
Sunshine is precious in the early spring. The wine and sunshine along the way warmed many people to the Haitian Highway in Winter Olympic Town, Whistler, 2010. The bay is all the way up, the curves and curves are full of driving passion.

Whistler is a winter tourism destination in Canada and the world's most famous ski resort. Some of the top ski publications have hailed it as the best ski resort in North America. In winter, Whistler is clear and clear, and travels through the white snow-capped mountains. Living in a romantic castle, enjoying the ultimate winter of ice and snow fairy tale in the fairyland away from human smoke and snow, it is a perfect romantic experience. In the early morning, Whistler covered with snow and snow, with a fairy tale temperament, looked up at the city of fairy tales, which is like a snow-covered fairy tale. It is smart and comfortable, quiet and beautiful, and it is so fascinating. Walking up the hillside, the snow-capped mountains are slowly being outlined by a touch of pink, like the blush on the cheeks of the shy girl. The Fairmont Whistler Castle Hotel in the snow and ice has the temperament of the castle in the snow fairy tale. The beauty of the illusion makes people unable to bear the horror, just enjoying the quiet beauty of the moment. Whistler, the world's tallest and longest unsupported cable car, can be seen in the spectacular snow-capped peaks of the cable car. Before crossing the peak cable car station, take the cable car to the peak of the Blackcomb Mountain. In addition to being the best ski resort in the world, Whistler is also the world's best holiday destination. Its popularity is completely out of season. Spring skiing is generally open until the end of May. At the top of the mountain, there is snow all year round. If you want to enjoy skiing, you dont have to wait until the winter. In the summer, you can enjoy the fun of sliding on the glaciers.
Whistler is located in the Pacific Coast Mountains north of Vancouver. The town does not have a long history. It has been known by the world for the best skiing venues in the world in recent decades. It won most snow projects in the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. . Snow Mountain Canyon and Forest also provide Whistler with a number of sports sanctuaries, mountain biking, triathlon, golf, trail running, alpine walking, marathon and more.
The resident population of the town is only tens of thousands. If you come here during the peak season, it is a good place to quietly escape the world.
Look at the bears!
This photo was taken by me in the Youth Hostel. Less than 100 meters away, because it is indoors, and it is the second floor, it was quite reassuring at the time. But also because I saw 3 bears in the early morning (two photos were taken in the photo. Look carefully!), so that every time you go downstairs to pick up the car, you are a little scared... This road is next to the parking lot. ... really close contact...
Winter and snowboarding is my favorite thing to do of the year. last year was lucky to go to Canada Whistle with my friends. We had so much fun this year we are planning to go ski to some new country we have never been before. Any recommendations???
