Checking out Whistler, Longhorn, and Blackcomb

by Brandon on February 23rd, 2008

A couple weekends ago some friends and I took a trip up to Whistler in Canada for a few days of winter fun.  It was my first time up there and I finally see why it has such a great reputation.

The skiing on both the Whistler and Blackcomb mountains was fantastic, and the weather was decent enough.  On our last day there, I stopped for lunch at the Longhorn saloon, the origin of Windows Vista’s codename (chosen because it sits between the Whistler and Blackcomb lifts).

    I hadn’t realized that that Windows codenames were named after ski lifts/mountains. Awesome.
