The Sierra Wireless Whistler Cup may physically be held in Whistler, but its' connection to Vancouver is vital. The three-day cup (held April 7 - 9 for skiers aged 11 - 14) is organized by the Whistler Mountain Ski Club and many volunteers, participants and sponsors live in the Vancouver area. Last week, a special sponsor cocktail reception was held in support of the event. Hosts Lorne and Melita Segal opened their beautiful new 12,000+ sq. ft. luxury home to guests for an evening filled with praise and anticipation for what organizers hope will be a big preview of what to expect from young skiers come Vancouver's 2010 Winter Olympics.
