Today I’m back in Whistler for 2 performances. The first is at the Four Seasons hotel playing solo guitar for US Bank. Then the next night I’ll be playing with Gabriel Mark Hasselbach’s Zen Soundscapes quartet.
The cool thing about Whistler this time of year is that you can get some really good deals on hotels! I’m going to be staying at the Sundial Boutique Hotel. It’s one of my favorites here! The cost for the room is $119.00 that’s a really great deal!
The drive to whistler was really nice. Finally no rain! It’s been raining a lot here lately. I left at 1pm and arrived in Whistler at 4:30pm. It’s usually a 2 hour drive however I have this ritual of stopping at the Squamish Whitespot for a bite to eat to break up the drive. The food is always the same an if I don’t drive fast enough it will pass right through before you get to Whistler.
Once in whistler I checked into the Sundial. The room as expected was great! It’s big with a kitchen, living room, private bedroom, bathroom, gas fireplace, tv… Not bad for my hard earned $119 bucks! (I think they’re regular price is around $139.00 however because I’ve stayed here before I get a 10% discount)
Unfortunately I didn’t take any pictures at the gig. I guess I’m a little tired these days and just got lazy however, I did take photos of my wonderful room.
The gig was great. I was performing outside in the Four Seasons Alpine Cabana. (It’s the Four Seasons fancy name for a big tent in the court yard) It was very nice with a pond and waterfalls to my left with on open pit gas fire.
I began setting up at 5:30 and began playing at 7pm then ended shortly after 9pm. Then I tore the gear down, loaded the truck and went back to the Sundial.
Life is so good I wish T was here with me.
