Whistler joins Canada's elite
Canada already boasts Lake Louise on the schedule, but now Whistler and Panorama Mountain Village, both in British Colombia, have also been put forward.
The men's Super G and Giant Slalom and women's Downhill and Super Combined are pencilled in, which would certainly give your ski holiday in Whistler that extra bit of kudos.
Ken Read, president of the Alpine Canada Alpin, explained the importance of the decision: "More of our athletes will be able to compete in their home country and these new races truly complement the Bombardier Lake Louise Winterstart, Canada's only World Cup venue since 1998.
"This will also give our officials and volunteers the kind of world-class training needed to prepare for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, which is really only three seasons away."
The additions would bring Canada up to the top level, shared by Austria, as a country with three sites on the women's calendar.
The chance to enjoy a ski holiday in Whistler is just around the corner, as the resort opens its runs on November 23rd.
