I’d wake up in…

Whistler, in winter

And stay at…

The Four Seasons on in a suite looking at the mountain – truly fabulous.

Breakfast would be…

Head to the in-house Side Cut and have a Cardio Blender juice – berry, acai powder, goji and mint,porridge with bananas and brown sugar, and a soy macchiato.

I would wear…

Merino wool base layers from Ice Breaker – a brilliantly innovative NZ company.

And take these travel essentials…

Merino gloves, my Tyrolean green felt hat, and a battery-pack charger.

I’d listen to…

Bruckner’s Eighth, and Faithless featuring Estelle – Why Go?

And visit…

The breathtaking slopes of Blackcomb and Whistler mountains.Just riding the chairlifts is incredibly calming with unbelievably beautiful views.

Have lunch at…

Christine’s on Blackcomb, pulled pork with ravioli, wearing my ski gear as does everyone else.

Buy…

Canadian maple syrup.

Hang out with…

My partner Al.

Relax at…

In one of the Four Seasons hot tubs after a day’s skiing.

Drink…

A local craft beer.

Chat with…

Whoever is next to me in the tub – it’s fascinating how being semi-naked (bathers only) removes barriers to conversation as people talk about snow, food and the freezing layer (I’d never heard of it until 12 months ago).

And wind down the evening having dinner at…

The best food in town is at Alta Bistro, where they also have a brilliantly creative cocktail list and a wide ranging but selected wine list. Ask for a local BC (British Columbia) wine such as the Foxtrot Vineyard Pinot Noir from Naramata Bench. Their elk tartare with foie gras is a must-have!
