I did the 2012/2013 11 week course in Whistler, and it was the time of my life! I was in a twin share, and am still in contact with my room-mate and others that were in the house with me! It's true what they say about Whistler, the BEST resort in the world, that I've been to at least! Powder, trees, piste, jumps, all of it, just fantastic. The instructors and the Yes! team are brilliant, the girls running the house did a great job. My riding has improved hugely, and the experience I gained there was invaluable for the rest of my gap year.
