As I mentioned before, my mom, sisters, brother-in-law and niece all found their way up to the PNW to spend Christmas with my brother and I. After couple of days in Seattle, we took a ferry up to the Great White North in pursuit of cozy fires and plenty of snow.
And plenty of snow we got. After driving a mere 45 minutes north of Vancouver—about half-way to Whistler—we stopped in Squamish to take the aptly named Sea to Sky Gondola on a dizzying ten-minute ride up the mountain. We disembarked to find ourselves in a snow globe populated by beautiful pine trees, feet of fresh powder and snowshoeing trails galore. We skipped the equipment in favor of tromping through the trails in our boots, getting buried up to the hip in hidden snowdrifts and throwing more than a few snowballs at each other. It was absolutely beautiful. And a bit chilly.
I took this opportunity to layer on my coziest pieces—a soft plaid flannel against the skin, a hooded puffer vest to keep my core nice and warm and to add a bit of that classic marshmallow puffiness to my silhouette, and a delightfully soft faux shearling jacket so I could pretend that I was a trapper of yore.
