02-378-17. Pg. 1. Caption: [top] For five and a half hours Saturday, volunteer firemen battled a condominium blaze that swept between walls. Six units were lost. Then Monday, fire broke out again nearby at the Baxter project. See story page 3.
02-378-23. Pg. 2. Caption: Firemen and residents were able to rescue some possessions from burning condos at Alpine Village Saturday, but losses were heavy and by the next day insurance investigators were already on the scene.
02-378-57. Pg. 3. Caption: [bottom] Whistler Mountain created a new sport Saturday: Gondola stuffing. The kids' team stuffed the most bodies into the gondola with 27, while the counterweights (a minimum of 200 lbs. each) could only manage nine.
02-378-84. Pg. 12. Caption: Whistler cross-country skier Jodi Rusted poles around a sharp corner during a fun relay race held to cap off the B.C. High School Cross-Country Championships held Saturday.
02-378-87. Pg. 13. Caption: Mike Davidson of the Alta Lake Sports Club will even spend time in the brig if it means hanging onto his hobby cannons. The one-pounder above was made by Great West Cannon Co. of Granville Island and is authentic in size and workmanship to the original. Davidson says. It was often hoisted into a ship's rigging and used to fire nails and other shrapnel at the enemy. Davidson uses the cannon to proclaim the open various sporting events but two years ago found himself in RCMP lock-up for four hours when a policeman arrested him for discharging a firearm in the municipality. But it's all in good fund, and the only thing fired is paper.

02-385-130. Pg. 3. Caption: [top] People might have complained about long line-ups at the credit union, but until Sunday heat was never a problem. But Sunday, the day the North Shore Community Credit Union moved across the square to its new, 1,300 sq. ft. premises, John Hunan of Whistler (right) found himself in a chilly line-up behind Danny Meier and David Monteith (left) of North Vancouver. Actually, it's a bogus lone-up: the bureau shown, as well as an 8,500 fund safe and other banking equipment had to be moved by truck from the old location to the new. Carpenters and electricians worked nearly around the clock Sunday and Monday to be ready for business as usual Tuesday. They made deadline.

The event was sponsored by the Alta Lake Community Club and was held in the Myrtle Philip School lunchroom.
02-385-104. Pg. 19. Caption: Michele Bertholet is the head chef at Pika's (pronounced Peeka's), Whistler Mountain's new restaurant adjacent the Roundhouse. The facility, which is licensed to seat 400 persons, had its official opening Friday. The 8,300 sq. ft. restaurant, designed by architect Lee Bruch and engineer Jon Paine, cost about $600,000 to construct including more than $150,000 in kitchen equipment. Bertholet and his staff will now be able to provide freshly baked pastries, rolls and buns daily as well as hearty meals such as Baron of Beef and chili. As well, the new restaurant features a custom sandwich bar. Whistler Mountain Ski Corporation named the restaurant Pika's, a small rock rabbit commonly found through the high alpine regions of North America, after a contest that drew 300 entries. Whistler residents Ms. Lori Mitchell and Mr. Peter Pritt were the winners and will split the grand prize so that each will receive $100 as well as a $50 gift certificate from Dusty's Cantina. Coincidentally, the name also fits a former mountain resident of a slightly larger form: Jessica Hare. Jessica lived in Whistler Mountain's alpine residence for four of her five years and gained the nickname Pika.
