Overall, I consider myself a vastly improved skate skier. I still struggle uphill and downhill still terrifies me. But I've discovered an affinity for the flat parts of Nick North and, more importantly, having taken lessons, I've fulfilled my end of the bargain and now get my reward.
A skate ski holiday? Hell no. A delicious five-course whatever they call that meal between lunch and dinner paired with five stunning Jackson-Triggs wines high atop Whistler Mountain. While not technically a quid pro quo — and certainly not blackmail — I consider attending the Valentine's Day Winemaker's Après a suitable reward for lessons taken in good spirits. After all, good sprits deserve better spirits and if you haven't treated yourself to one of the Winemaker's Après you should. The chefs at Steeps pull out all the stops and the winemakers try to top that. They battle; you win, er, I win. Or, I won.
Whatever, but I'll be skiing down on real skis when it's over.
