Andrew Roberts and Michael Paul, both Myrtle Philip School students, love the sport and have even constructed their own bumps so they can get a little air time even when not skiing. An official BMX track may be opening soon in Whistler.

02-409-C-3. Pg. 3. Caption: [bottom] After just eight months managing 76-room Tantalus Lodge, Hugo and Giselle Stam were chosen over 49 other hotels in the U.S. and Canada as Managers of 1983-84. The award was presented in Bellevue, Wash. at an awards banquet April 6. Hotels were judged in five areas: service, congenial staff, cleanliness, hospitality and letters from guests. The secret, say Hugo and Giselle , is teamwork. Having operated their own hotel in Europe for 12 years, and being involved in the hospitality industry most of their lives, they see hospitality as an attitude, and hotel management as a people-oriented business. And, Giselle adds, without the help of their sons Hugo Jr. and Roger, things would be a lot harder. But before they embark on a summer outdoors tour program a trip to Hawaii is on Giselle and Hugo's agenda. The trip is part of the Managers award, presented by Marketing Plus Corporation of Bellevue.
02-409-B-20. Pg. 11. Caption: Cst. Russ Morrison is the newest addition to the Whistler RCMP detachment, replacing Cst. Richard Guay who recently left for Ottawa. Morrison has been in the police force for 15 years and recently was posted in Kamloops for six years. Morrison, 35, has also worked in Surrey, Dawson City, Whitehorse and the most northernly town in the Yukon, Old Crow. Morrison doesn't ski but plays hockey and baseball and enjoys fishing, hunting, curling and golf. There is no time limit on his posting here so he could be around for a while, but he hasn't formed a definite impression of Whistler. "First impressions never make any difference," he said, "Every place is what you make it."
