In the summer of 2018, I applied for a photography position in Whistler, BC. I have been wanting to do a season in the mountains for the longest time, and I finally went for it. I accepted a position working full-time as a photographer in Whistler, with one contingency...I had to find a place to live. If anyone has tried to live in Whistler, they understand the struggle it is to find affordable housing.
Finding a place to live was a long and quite annoying process, but everything worked out in the end. I was able to find a place to live a week prior to the start of my work contract. With this position came a season lift pass to Whistler/Blackcomb resort. My first few weeks, I took it pretty slow on my snowboard. It would have been the first time I would be riding since I got my hip replaced last January (2019). With each run I took, I began to get more and more comfortable on my board again, and learned to trust my hips again.
