Whistler CPA Congress

View from the village

Even running around the golf course you have to have an eye

Crankworx 2011 - mountain bikers from all over were in Whistler

the location of a lot of celebrations during the Olympics

A great place in the village for a seasonal brew and fish taco

The best view of all the mountains - even in the offseason.

Whistler was the site of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association(CPA) congress and it was a spectacular location. We were surrounded by mountains and even in cloudy and drizzly weather it is an unbelievable site. Between organizational meetings and scientific sessions we all crammed in a lot of sight seeing. It turned out the end of the congress was the best day to get to the top of Blackcomb which was a great opportunity to catch black bears in the fields below the lift and just beyond trails where mountain bikers were racing. This is a spot where visitors from all over the world drop by and it was a riot to see old and young visitors engage in an spontaneous snowball fights.
