Cycling the Sea to Sky....or the Sky to Sea

CANADA | Mon, 9 May 2011 | By shalaith | Views [1005] | Comments [3]

Whistler gets awesome.

CANADA | Thu, 24 Feb 2011 | By elis82 | Views [2186]

Season's Eve

CANADA | Fri, 19 Nov 2010 | By elis82 | Views [591]

The last couple of weeks have been fairly slow, waiting for the season to kick off. The initial snow didn't quite last the afternoon. It warmed up for a bit and we spent time in the gym getting ready for the season, and in the pub, undoing our good work.... Read more >

Just Messin' Around

CANADA | Sat, 4 Jul 2009 | By true-claims-stories | Views [2030]

I hit the terrain park at Whistler Resort and was a little too confident on my snowboard.  The first jump I went off landed badly and I hurt my back.  I was whisked away in one of those ski patrol sleds and ambulanced to Whistler Health Care Centre.... Read more >
