Thinking about winter

I wrote a post yesterday for my work blog about summer holiday tips. There were some great tips in there because I got loads of help from our Facebook fans. This got me thinking about the fact that I will have to do something similar for our next auction, which is a winter holiday. This will be a little more difficult because I have never been on a ski holiday. I have been snowboarding but only in the Tamworth Snow Dome. I’ve always wanted to go on a winter holiday but it’s not something I’ve ever managed to get around to. 

Our next holiday auction is going to be for a winter holiday to Whistler, Canada. I’ve never been there, but I have done loads of research about it and I am absolutely desperate to go. Not only does it have some of the best skiing and snowboarding in North America, it also has many other amazing things to offer. 

Imagine spending a day dog-sledding, then heading back to the hotel for a dip in the heated pool and hot tub, relaxing in the sauna and then heading off into Whistler village for a night of apres-ski. Or you could replace the dog-sledding with heli-skiing, sleigh-riding, zip-lining or bear viewing. How amazing. 

I will be so jealous when I’m packing the winner off on this holiday. If only I could enter myself! So does anybody have any winter holiday tips that I can pass on? If you’re into winter holidays, the holiday competition for this one starts on 10th June. Please bear in mind that if you win, I will be insanely jealous.

  1. I think dress warmly goes without saying 😉

    Remember to pack and use sunscreen on your face and lips. The sun reflects off the snow and into your face even if you're wearing a hat with visor.

    When will this giveaway be posted? Since I'm Canadian, I'd love it if you posted it to my Facebook Wall (I open it up once a week) as well as my Giveaway Linky. If it's open to Canadians, I'd love to help you share it with my followers. Let me know how I can help.
