Christmas carols, cheer and tales at BAG

Crazy Canucks and climbs

Mastering the Stawamus Chief is the challenge in one of the films at the Whistler Film Festival. A film called Vertically Challenged will be screened at the festival. It's about a quadriplegic man named Brad Zdanivsky.

The hills are alive

The Sea to Sky Hotel is alive with the sound of frantic last-minute rehearsal. But the end result will be one of the biggest dramatic undertakings in Squamish history.

Art, music, dance and weird hair are sweeping through Squamish again. The third Art and Soul fundraiser is Nov. 6 at Totem Hall. The event is to raise money for the Squamish skate park.
