CTV Canada to broadcast live 

If you’re really a morning person, you should head down to Skier’s Plaza early Monday morning.

CTV’s Canada AM crew, Beverly Thomson, Seamus O’Regan, Jeff Hutcheson and the hosts of the new Canada AM Western edition, Mi-Jung Lee and Rena Heer, will be on hand from 3 a.m. until 9 a.m. to launch celebrations for the two-year Olympic countdown week.

The Canada AM team plans to highlight many of the people and stories of Whistler, by interviewing local athletes, and organizations, such as the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Winter Games, the Whistler Adaptive Ski Program, Tourism Whistler and Whistler-Blackcomb.

The morning starts with a pancake breakfast with the Whistler Rotary Club and music by Whistler locals, followed by a performance by The Hairfarmers, a Whistler-Blackcomb Fire and Ice Show, and yoga with Lululemon. Hosts will head up to the Roundhouse around 7:30 a.m. for Fresh Tracks, then back down to the Village to wrap up.

The Dubh Linn Gate and Blacks Pub will be opened during the broadcast for warmth and goodies, and crowd giveaways will be provided by local businesses like Behind the Grind, The Core, and Ziptrek.
