"That one piece ski suit would look great on my bedroom floor."
"Have you ever had an Aussie kiss? It's like a French kiss but Down Under."
"You know what they say about guys with fat powder skis..."
"The snow report says there is 6 inches out there, but come with me and I'll show you 12."
"I have the recipe for a Dusty's Caesar back at my place..."
"I'm a pro skier..."
"Looks like they have been doing avalanche control around here, because I just found me a bombshell."
"I have an ava-lung, which means I don't have to come up for air."
And our personal fave:
"Do you work for the hill? Cause you're giving me a liftie."
The success rate on these has not been proven. Go forth and test them Whistler. Let us know if they work for you. We take absolutely no responsibility if you get slapped in the face.
BEST WAY TO PUNISH A SKI/SNOWBOARD/BIKE THIEF
Public naming and shaming are the punishment of choice for thieves caught with skis, or snowboards or bikes that don't belong to them. A wide variety of physical punishments took second place while a lifetime ban of Whistler and the mountains took third. Better think twice when you get itchy fingers in Whistler. Our black magic markers and white poster boards are at the ready. Don't be an idiot.
BEST WAY TO SAVE MONEY
Don't drink. Don't party. Don't go to the bars. Sigh. Oh, and make your own lunch. Let's think about this in the New Year.
BEST DECISION BY WHISTLER COUNCIL IN 2012
Can we say LANDSLIDE? There's no question here about how the people feel. When presented with the options: Free Parking in Lots 4 & 5, taking a stance against the Enbridge Pipeline, backing the UBCM motion to decriminalize marijuana or bringing back council committee meetings that are open to the public, it was a no brainer. Free parking. Free parking. Free parking.
WORST DECISION BY WHISTLER COUNCIL IN 2012
If free parking was the BEST decision by council, implementing PAY parking was the WORST. It was seen as a compromise. Some pay parking to have some free parking. Whistlerites were not to be deceived. Pay parking takes the top spot as the worst council decision, by a long shot, way above not appealing the judge's asphalt plant decision entrenching the industrial use in Cheakamus, delaying the decision on the university proposal, or delaying approval of the Mons industrial rezoning.
WORST USE OF MONEY
Going out and blowing it on booze was the top vote getter. But that's when it comes to your own money. When it comes to the worst use of public money there were several candidates: pay parking, paving the parking lots, concerts in the plaza, and the Whistler Sliding Centre.
