Clearly whatever gains Whistler made last season when we had snow and Colorado didn't are about to go up in smoke! You're a skier. You can choose to pay more to fly to Vancouver and have a nice ski holiday in Whistler or pay less to fly to Colorado, ski the Rockies and cop a bag of weed instead of blowing what's left of your vacation funds on over-priced drinks slopeside.

This could be as big a threat to Tiny Town as global warming.

Clearly it's time for Whistler council to legalize weed. Oh, I know, it's not within the power of a municipality to do that. So what. Just do it. We can trick the local RCMP into, shall we say, compromising positions that will give local politicians enough influence to get them to turn a blind eye.

We need a level, if higher, playing field. We have the terrain, we have the snow and lord knows B.C. bud is way better than the stuff they're smoking in Colorado. Don't ask me how I know, but I was just there. Now all we need is the political will.
