Putting out the Fyre…

The worst “luxury” festival of all time? The organizers of the Fyre Festival promised “two transformative weekends” on a “remote and private” island in the Bahamas that was “once owned by Pablo Escobar.” Ja Rule was one of the organizers. Kendall Jenner promoted it on Instagram. Festival-goers paid thousands of dollars for a taste of the lifestyle of models from their Instagram feeds.

However, none of that happened.

Guests arrived to find themselves staring at a chaotic festival site that looked more like a bad summer camp. Complete with shoddy beach accommodations and far from gourmet meals. Bands cancelled and pulled out last-minute. Eventually, the festival was cancelled, and attendees were sent home. But, predictably, that went about as well as you’d think. People got stranded at the airport, with little food or water. Because the event was cashless many people didn’t have funds to get to the airport. The festival has been slapped with two lawsuits and people are still creating memes about their “Hunger Games” experience, hoping they get a refund.

Moral of the story, don’t believe everything you see online!

A Weekend in Whistler.

If you are looking for the perfect ski town look no further than Whistler, British Columbia. There’s enough terrain to keep you riding for a week (if your body can handle it). After a full day on the slopes, you can indulge in the many different après-ski options and cute restaurants in the picturesque downtown village. There’s over 200 marked runs, 8,171 acres of terrain, 16 alpine bowls, three glaciers, and the mountain receives on average 461 inches of snow annually.

One of the best parts of the trip was riding  the Peak 2 Peak Gondola. It holds world records for the longest free span between rope way towers—1.88 miles and highest point above the ground 1,430 feet…
