Photographer's Note

another old scanned foto 'excavated' from my archive (and by so being, no pertinent foto info available.....:-0)

the canadians are inviting everyone from TE to join them for the 2010 sea to sky winter olympics to be held in whistler, BC.

in the early 1960's whistler, was first envisioned as a ski resort, and in 1975 it became the first, "resort municipality" in canada. today, whistler is an unparalleled year-round destination resort, less than 2-hour drive from vancouver.

whistler is more than just world-class skiing, its setting in BC's coast mountains offers
visitors a wide variety of both winter and summer activities. all year-round, the cosmopolitan village of whistler also provides an almost endless choice in dining, shopping and nightlife.

winter in whistler, with incredible downhill skiing at whistler and blackcomb mountains, is what has made the area world famous. in addition to the downhill ski facilities, winter visitors enjoy cross country skiing, heli-skiing, ice skating, snowmobiling, sleigh-riding, dog-sledding and a host of other winter recreational pursuits.

summer in whistler is just as spectacular as winter. mountaintop sightseeing, world-class golf, mountain biking (whistler is considered as "one of the top bike towns in america"), hiking, in-line skating, horseback riding, sightseeing, canoeing, kayaking,
fishing, and even glacier skiing are but of the few of the opportunities the area provides in the summer months.
