Lounging with Locals – Mercedes Nicoll
89 per cent of the time I’m thinking about what the weather’s like, boys, what I’m missing out on, how much I hate FOMO, my friends, my family, my dog, when the snow’s gunna fall, what my next Instagram will be, what time is too early to pour myself a drink…
The other 11 per cent I’m sleeping!
Tell us an interesting Whistler story.
There are so many, but this one is funny! My Dad’s nickname is Piggy, so we had a lot of excess pig memorabilia hanging around. One April Fools in the 90’s the Nicoll family headed up Whistler Mountain, hammer, nails, and wooden pigs in hand and put them all over Pig Alley, on the sign and in the trees. The pigs remain there to this day!
What makes Whistler awesome?
Have you seen the two mountains we have here??
Whistler has so much more to offer than anywhere else I have traveled to. We have those mountains, lakes, restaurants, underground bars, valley trail, bike trails, the River of Golden Dreams, hiking trails, farmers market, friendly people, friends, family, memories, the list just goes on and on!!
What is Whistler’s best kept secret?
If I tell you I would have to kill you! The first rule of Whistler is to keep the secrets SECRET! All the people, really that’s what makes Whistler, Whistler! I love this community and always will!
What do you really want to say to the world?
Be kind to one another!
Smile and pass it along, life’s too short!
Get outside and play!
