Stay & Ski in Whistler: Packages up to 42% Off

By William Brown

In a deal ending Nov. 15, skiers heading to Whistler save up to 42% by buying a hotel stay and lift tickets together. We love that these savings come as forecasters are predicting heavy snowfall at Western Canada ski resorts this winter.

How it works:

·         This deal spans the entire ski/snowboard season, Nov. 24 - April 17

·         More than 75 lodging options are included, from condo-style rentals to 4-star resorts

·         You must stay at least two nights with two-day lift tickets; seven-night stays with five-day lift tickets have the most savings

·         One child age 12 or younger per paying adult stays and skis for free, including rentals (Dec. 17-31 excluded)

·         We found the lowest prices on weekday stays

With so many options, we've come up with a step-by-step guide to make it easier to book:

·         Hit the button below, then select the number of travellers and travel dates and click "Search Packages"

·         Choose your hotel, click on the price of your preferred room type, then click "Details"

·         Add your lift tickets from the drop-down menu; you’ll then see the final price (before tax)

·         Click the yellow "Add" button and the tax-inclusive price appears on the next screen; click "Proceed to checkout" to finish booking

·         For any questions or to book over the phone, call 1-800-944-7853

Feds kick extra money into sport science

CALGARY - The science and technology behind Canada's Olympians got a financial re-boot Wednesday with the announcement of extra federal government money.

The Government of Canada is topping up the Innovations For Gold program by $1 million this year and up to $1 million each of the next two.

"Canada is a leading sport nation. We want to keep it that way," said Bal Gosal, Canada's Minister of State for Sport.

"From learning more about how sleep can help an athlete's recovery to working on head-injury prevention screens, this cutting-edge research is going to provide lasting benefits to our athletes."

Own The Podium spent $8 million on 55 winter-sport projects collectively named Top Secret prior to the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver and Whistler, B.C.

But the money for giant treadmills, global positioning units, cables to catapult speedskaters and human physiology studies shrunk post-2010 to about $1 million spent annually across summer, winter and Paralympic sports combined.

Canada was falling behind other countries in the sport technology arms race again until Wednesday's announcement.

OTP chief executive officer Anne Merklinger can now work with $6 million over the next three years for Top Secret's successor, Innovations For Gold, as long as her organization raises its half for the feds to match.

"This new funding will enable us to get back on track," she said following a news conference at WinSport in Calgary. "If we are not driving research and innovation in high-performance sport, we are not in the game."

One of the few projects Innovations For Gold could afford after 2010 was the alpine sit-ski for para-alpine athletes.

Canadian Paralympic Committee president Gaetan Tardif watched with trepidation as athletes from other countries crashed all over the mountain during last year's Paralympics in Sochi, Russia.

Kingsbury wins World Cup freestyle moguls

VAL SAINT-CÔME, Qc - Another men's World Cup freestyle ski event, another win for Canadian Mikael Kingsbury.

Kingsbury, of Deux-Montagnes, Que., won a moguls competition Saturday, his fifth straight World Cup victory. He topped Australian Matt Graham and Russian Alexander Smyshlyev to remain atop the World Cup moguls standings.

Kingsbury needs only 53 points from the final three races of the season to claim a fourth straight crystal globe.

"I knew what I needed to do to win here and I made it happen," he said. "It was extra special doing it in Quebec and with a big crowd at the bottom of the hill.

"I knew I couldn't make too many errors in the final. I didn't need to be the fastest, I just needed to be consistent. The last few moguls on this course were extremely tricky and icy. I needed to have full control in what I was doing to perform my jump. I think my strategy really paid off."

Kingsbury anchored a solid performance for Canada as Chloe Dufour-Lapointe of Montreal and Quebec City's Audrey Robichaud took silver and bronze, respectively, in the women's event.

American Hannah Kearney claimed the gold medal, taking all three of her runs. Kearney passed Olympic champion Justine Dufour-Lapointe of Montreal, who finished 14th, for top spot in women's standings.

Robichaud was ecstatic with her finish.

"I have tears of joy right now, I am just so proud," she said. "It's really difficult to describe how I feel.

"I've felt like I was really close to making it to the podium for a while. I'm glad it happened here though and in Quebec. I had many of my family and friends here as well to celebrate my 99th career World Cup, I was really touched by all of them being here
