A heart attack on a British Columbia mountain leads to quick response time by the resort’s staff.
In the first renderings of this series, I suggested that the planning of at least one long “road trip” should start very early preseason. In my case, it started in the summer with the good guidance of the Onondaga Ski Club's trip committee. Destination: Whistler/Blackcomb, in British Columbia.
