Whistler the great ski mountain is getting an ever more interesting place. Beside skiing in the winter and golfing on several golf courses in the summer there are conventions going on all year round. Lots of hiking in the Alpine flower meadows thanks to all the lifts and gondolas. Peak to Peak gondola is a very special experience transversing the valley from Blackcomb mounain to Whistler mountain. A few days ago I just discoverd a new created bike and walking trail through pestine forests along the river which connects to the whole network of trails. I also attended a meeting and signed a petition for a university beeing build just south of the main village. The architects drawings are all in place to accomodate1.500 students from all over the world. A techniqual university for all sports equipment, presently the best in the world, is located in Vienna Austria. They are very interested in this Whistler university. Berlin in Germany, Japan and Vancouver are all looking foreward sendig students to this new university. Our students from Canada can then attend some semesters in these participating universities from all over the world. There are other faculties planned like enviromental studies, gastronomical education to mention some. First clas chefs from our restaurants will be teaching culunary skills at this university. Natives and their culture will also be a subject. There is a meeting with the local goverment coming up and many people hope it will become reality.
A very exciting time for Whistler, beside all the sports, nature and all the recrational facilities, it will get an intelectual and educational aspect as well.
