Canada vs. The Rest of the World

Hockey @ Meadow Park Sports Arena, Whistler

Very few indoor skating rinks have a glass wall. Fewer still have views of mountain peaks more than 2000 metres above the ice sheet you are skating on. Welcome to Whistler, where our state of the art ice rink awaits you and your best moves in the 'ISSW2008 pond hockey' challenge. Pond hockey, in that all you need are skates, gloves, and a stick. It will be a friendly game, quintessentially Canadian in that the only real objective is to quench one's thirst for fun, exercise, and beer. Cost is $15 per person. Skate rentals are available for a nominal fee at the rink, or bring your own. Sticks will be provided.
