CANADA | Shit Skiers Say

Oh CANADA! | Happy 144th !!

Not to mention Canada is a great place to live. Especially if you have children. Safe, secure, smiling and simply perfect, Canada celebrates itself today – HAPPY CANADA DAY everyone!

LIVING LARGE | Paragliding across American skies

Follow Canadian paraglider pilot Will Gadd as he leads the first paragliding expedition to attempt to cross the United States from coast to coast, California to North Carolina.

An epic six-week thrill ride at altitudes as high as 17,000 ft., never fully knowing where they would land and what they would find on the ground, and always captive to the winds and the thermals.

Cowbells and Queens, the 2010 Winter Olympics continue

From giant Cowbells to crazy pin trading fanatics, this Olympic freight train is rolling along on course and Whistler has come alive – even more alive that it usually is.


From (see photos above) one Queen (Latifa) to another – Governor General Michaelle Jean (the Queen’s representative in Canada), the past few days have been a blend of live concerts, giant cowbells, multimedia art shows, national pride, gold medals and beer – lots of beer.

From sneaking into Swiss House after their gold medal win in Men’s Downhill to attending the Women’s Luge finals and today’s exciting and dramatic Ladies’ Downhill, it’s been a blast so far!

Barenaked Ladies are playing in Whistler’s Village Square tonight, and then, there’s always the hope of getting into the Our Lady Peace concert tonight. The rest of the Games are bound to bring more adventures and we’re really just getting warmed up!

Amber Berry1
As we wait for the snow to fly in Whistler, I’m enjoying autumn’s culinary delights. There’s nothing to make you more thankful than heading out to a real live farm and gaining a better appreciation for where your food comes from.

Jet boating with a skiing legend

Beautiful River
When I was asked to go jet boating in Pemberton with extreme skiing legend Eric Pehota, it was sort of a no brainer. The man has done the unthinkable on skis for more than 20 years, so why wouldn’t you want to rip down a network of glacial rivers with a certified adrenaline junkie?

FF Sakes; Nobody’s going to die!

Catering
One of my many side jobs is catering. I’ve always marveled at this chaotic world in which a spot on a knife can be life or death and putting linen on a table is downright heart surgery – really, I’m terrible at it.

2010 | a Snow Leopard on skis!

Snow-Leopard
It isn’t often you see an African man in a leopard-print ski jacket on Blackcomb’s Horstman Glacier.

We’ve all seen the movie Cool Runnings, which tells the story of the Jamaican Bobsleigh team and their quest for the 1988 Olympic Winter Games in Calgary. This winter, the eyes of the world will be on Kwame Nkrumah-Acheampong, Ghana’s first and only Olympic skier.

Tuff weekend: the staycation expands

Amber Jump
Tofino, or “Tuff” as the locals call it, is the perfect place to hang for a staycation long weekend. Whether your a surfer or not, you’ll enjoy its vast of expanse of beaches, laid back vibe and fresh ocean air. And ohhhh man, especially the fresh crab. Tofino is especially popular amongst Whistler folk, who adapt well to the ocean lifestyle. Hell, I even saw a Voleurz sticker in Cox Bay parking lot. That Whistler-based ski/snowboard film company sure gets around.

“J Stroking” on Alta Lake, B.C.

Something magical happens when you arrive at the summit of the small valley that contains Whistler. A cluster of small lakes is gathered here, reflecting the outlines of the mountains high above, including Alta Lake, the great divide in the Sea to Sky corridor. No other lakes have scenery quite like this to mirror.

War of Tomatoes, Buñol, Spain

Once a year, one particular street in this sleepy town becomes red from an ankle-deep tomato juice river, which flows with flip-flops, t-shirts, beer cans, and the occasional Afro wig. The event is called La Tomatina and is the world’s largest tomato fight.

tomatina

Buñol, which is a one-hour train ride from Valencia, has been hosting La Tomatina since 1945. There are various theories about how it began. Some say a couple of friends got into an argument at a local restaurant, which eventually turned into a food fight. Others believe it began as an anti-Franco protest. And still, another explanation is that the tomato war began between two opposing groups of youths: Think the Socs and the Greasers from the book “The Outsiders.”

Regardless, what began as the flinging of a few tomatoes in a quiet and unassuming town, has grown into an annual festival on the last Wednesday of every August, to which nearly 20,000 white-shirt-wearing warriors flock.
