Wow...cool! I'm not really all that sporty, but that looks really cool. I used to live in a town near Vancouver called Abbotsford. Vancouver is really close to Whistler. It is only a couple hours away. When we went there last Thanksgiving, we ate in a restaurant were we got a great view of the bikers doing a couple tricks and we could also se Whistler and Blackcomb Mountain and the gondolas! About 7 months ago, we moved here. Southern Ontario!
