The island of Bali is a special place, an Indonesian paradise that feels like a fantasy, nightmare and alternative reality all at once. Soak up the sun on a stretch of fine white sand, or get into the mix in the latest #DayOutWithPeople shot by Caley Vanular.

Watch out for high tide.

The waiting game.

Run on island time here.

Surf everyday and be happy.

Destination Canada: A Local’s Guide To Whistler

 

A Local’s Guide To Riding Whistler

The many sides of Whistler Photos: Caley Vanular

Whistler BC, is an amazing place to grow up. The beautiful outdoors, inspiring people and unmatched terrain is an experience only those who visit can truly understand. Especially in the past few years. With the arrival of new restaurants, facilities, retail stores, terrain access, express lifts and more, Whistler has grown from a small ski town to a globally renowned ski resort, featuring a community filled with amazing opportunities for action, adventure, cuisine, and culture.

Follow along as I give you some locals tips to skiing and snowboarding in one of the best places on earth, for the easy riders, powder hounds, park rats and backcountry enthusiasts in your group…

For The Easy Riders:

Whistler Blackcomb is a huge resort, with over 8,171 acres of skiable terrain. It is smart to take a look at the trail map to get an idea of where you want to ski before you hit the slopes. My favorite morning runs are on the green Family Runs. Featuring beautiful scenery and perfect corduroy, it is a nice way to ease into the morning.

For The Park Rats: If you or someone in your family is looking to ride park, Whistler Blackcomb has some of the best terrain parks in the world. Ranging from green to extreme, the resort has something for everyone. Whistler’s park is traditionally the novice level park, with fun jibs and welcoming jumps. Blackcomb terrain park is built on a steeper run and hosts a blue, grey and black park. The black park is where you will see professional athletes and Olympians training, it has the biggest jumps and requires a special pass and helmet to ride.

For The Powder Hounds:

Looking for powder on Whistler Blackcomb? You will need to know where to go. If you are on Whistler and see Peak Chair switch from ‘closed’ to ‘stand-by’, rip on over and jump in line. When it opens, you will experience amazing snow, endless terrain, and big open bowls. Ride back down to the lift and enjoy a show as skiers and snowboarders drop off cliffs viewable from the lift line. You can lap Peak Chair to Red Chair, all day and explore different routes and traverses leading you to some of the best terrain the resort has to offer.

If it is too windy to open Peak Chair on Whistler, take the Peak-To-Peak gondola over to Blackcomb. Blackcomb mountain is steeper and features the new Crystal Ridge Express chair which gives you access to playful terrain and powder-filled glades.

For The Backcountry Enthusiasts:

Not only does Whistler play host to the world-renowned ski resort, Whistler Blackcomb, it also has numerous backcountry access points within a thirty-minute drive. From epic heli skiing, snowmobiling to split boarding, it is worth checking out the operations in the area and getting yourself a guided tour of the surrounding mountains. Only if you want bottomless powder and no lift lines that is…

Well Travelled: Hawaii

HSC_Well_Travelled_banner

Based in Squamish, British Columbia, Canada, professional wedding and lifestyle photographer Rebecca Bundschuh shares her words and photos from an inspirational trip to beautiful Hawaii…

Travelling with a family is a different beast. The responsibility of caring for others while navigating new surroundings can present challenges. Those who persevere are often rewarded, like I was while exploring the magical land of Hawaii with my children. I love the comfort and excitement of experiencing new places with them and capturing those moments with my camera.

1. How do you find the music you listen to?

I go through periods of picking up all the music papers and going on amazon binges. I think it’s to do with obsessively needing to feel connected to all the new music being released in the world, but then I have periods of resorting back to just listening to Neil Young albums. And my record collection was a pretty good reflection of that. But then my car got stolen with most of my Neil Young records in it. So now i’m just left with all the other crap.

2. What is your favourite way to enjoy music?

Driving around in my car (before it got stolen). I could never understand why people drove, or equally what the purpose of CDs were. But the minute i put my key in the ignition it all made perfect sense. Music sounds so much better with lights flying past you at 90 mph on the motorway

3. What excites you about finding new music?

I think a big part of it comes from that feeling of discovery, and wanting to keep it to yourself. But if a record is really great, other people will start talking about it too, and slowly this thing which went from being your secret, is everyone else’s secret too and then you hear it in H&M and something inside you dies. I think that’s why a lot of band’s early fans end up deserting them in time. From the perspective of someone who plays in a band, i see the arc of a band’s career as being like a long, meandering train ride. People are going to get off at some stations and others are going to get on. Some of them will realize they caught the wrong train, but others will stay and ride it till the wheels come off.

4. What tracks/and or artists comprise your personal soundtrack right now?

Im listening to a lot of space rock. There is a lot of rock around but not enough space. Certainly not in Pop music. Actually i think that is why people really took to artists like the XX and James Blake, because there is room to breathe in their music. For the first time in so long you could actually hear something on the radio that had dynamic range instead of all this disgustingly compressed crap that made you feel like your brain was being squished out of your ears. They call it ‘brickwalling’.

Alex from the Monkeys recently commented that all he listens to know is hip hop which is exactly what he did before guitar music came back around ten years ago. And i feel kind of the same way. We are at the end of a cycle. All the stokes have kids and are recovering alcoholics. The scene isn’t as tribal as it was when we came out, everyones kind of out there, floating on their own. I think thats why i’m listening to a lot of space rock.

5. Who do you trust to give an honest evaluation of new tracks?

As in who do i play my own new music to? I guess my dad, he is very involved with my songs, we finish the words together. I bring him the lyrics and basically say ‘make this sound eloquent and articulate!’. But mostly I am quite private with it until the last moment. Iv’e always felt the creative process is a lot like childbirth in so many ways. Why would you want to tell the world all about your baby before its even born? i mean, it might have red hair, it might have black hair, who knows? it might not want you to tweet videos of it to everyone you know before it even knows what it is. I feel like that about songs. But then after we put the record out i always distance myself from it. The mastering process is the last time i usually hear the album and then i’m done. I have to step away or else i carry on hearing all the things i still want to change, but by that time it’s too late. You have to relinquish control and go let it out into the world and live a life of it’s own.
