Whistler's Best Working Stiffs The following are the winners of the Amex-Whistler Chamber of Commerce annual employee recognition program. Everyone got a watch, certificate of achievement and a pin at the Thurs., April 24 dinner. A draw among the winners at the event gave out a $1,000 traveller’s cheque, a fun-filled weekend in Vancouver and a spanking-new mountain bike to get there on (just kidding) to just one person. Who says working like a dog doesn't have a pay off. Ed Pitoniak of Blackcomb Skiing delivered the keynote address.
