In fact, it was well below freezing here… -6°C when we arrived last Sunday, but thankfully warming through the week up to a pleasant 0° and bringing snow finally, towards the end of our 5 day stay. And what spectacular mountains Whistler and it's next door neighbor Blackcomb are... with a mile of vertical drop, the longest runs are about 7 miles! Great village, too, with lots of excellent restaurants and shops and space to walk.
Canada is also wired... lots of free WiFi everywhere. I'm sitting now at Vancouver International Airport on a free WiFi connection with over 56 Mbit of bandwidth!
