SLIDING STAFF Three Whistler Sliding Centre staff—Arnita Ancena (front), Darren Cromb (middle) and Emalee Vandermale (back)—got to work making ice last week. Here, the trio is pictured adding water to the track surface, which in the ice-making process then gets cooled down by the WSC's refrigeration plant until frozen. The ice is then hand-shaped and groomed by the track crew, all the way along the 1,450 metre-long track.

BREATHE EASY Squamish Hospital Foundation board member Jill Dunnigan and Sophie Moore, fundraising administrative and communications coordinator for Squamish Hospital Foundation, accept a cheque for over $50,000 towards a Hamilton T-1 Transport Ventilator from Bob Underhill of TB Vets Charitable Foundation. According to TB Vets, one ventilator saves approximately fives lives a day in a busy emergency room and lasts for about 10 years—meaning this gift will greatly impact the residents of the Sea to Sky corridor.
