Whistler website has snow scoops and other
Whistler Blackcomb has a new website with information about the athletes, their secret spots, adventure and travel.
Untrackedlines.com includes athlete blogs, photos and movie teasers. You'll also find out what's happening in and around Whistler and the ski and snowboard world.
Athletes include Sarah Burke, Leanne Pelosi, Priscilla Leevac, Mark Abma, Justin Lamorureux, Ian McIntosh, Den Treadway and Mikey Rencz.
As the snow season ramps up, they'll be posting updates and photos of their best "pow" day, best Sushi Village moment, best wipe out, best friends and other tales from the cold terrain.
A contest is also part of the website. Three Sticks of Bacon and a Helicopter could result in a great trip for two to Whistler.
The grand prize includes round-trip airfare to Whistler from anywhere in North America; Star Limo transfers; Whistler Blackcomb lift tickets; a day of heli skiing or riding with Whistler Hili-Skiing; accommodation at the Holiday Inn and more.
Travel journalists and members of Tourism Whistler pose with Ullr, the Norse God of Snow. That's me in the green.
