Get away from it all and explore the stunning backcountry of Canada’s British Columbia by conquering Whistler’s Spearhead Traverse…
As recreational pastimes go, hurtling down a mountainside on two planks of wood – skiing to you and me – is just about as good as it gets.
The only metaphorical downside is that during a week spent on the slopes, away from the bustle of modern life, ‘rest’ is probably not the number one priority.
For all the time spent in the mountains, you can probably expect to spend the same amount again recovering back at home after a cocktail of unaccustomed exercise, partying and lack of sleep.
To many people, buying into this fantasy world of the ski resort for a short break is a luxury in itself.
