Part 2: Whistler Mountain
Josh rides every chairlift on Whistler Mountain (except Franz's Chair, which is never open) in a single morning in February 2012. I tried to avoid riding with other people to prevent the awkward questions, but it wasn't always possible.

First, I uploaded from the village via Fitzsimmons Express.

Have you ever wondered how I manage to capture these incredible images? Well stop wondering, and start looking at the cold hard facts.

If I get enough of these photos, I will start a new project entitled "Where's 'Where's Josh Been' Been?"


  1. As great as is this I think Josh missed one little trick, he should of put two photos in the keyring, one with a sad face and one with a happy face. This way Josh could review each scenic location, the results of either the happy or sad face could be published and analysed. I can picture many useless graphs and hours of wasted time spent on excel.

  2. No hour spent on excel is a wasted hour


Anonymity is for cowards.
