I was up in Whistler the last couple days and doing some reading up on the history of the village and found an interesting v.w. connection...
"...at the time, the Alta Lake area was overdeveloped, so the government instituted a development freeze while they studied the problem. The only solution was to continue development in another location. They quickly decided to focus on the table between Whistler and Blackcomb, about 4 km to the north of the existing facilities on Alta Lake. At that time this was the site of the Alta Lake dump, and the remains of a Volkswagen Van are still buried under the modern village."
Pretty cool. _________________ 85 Westfalia- Subaru conversion in progress
