Charge of the Goddess Hits Whistler March 1-9 (11-Mar-08)

WHISTLER, BC, February 25, 2008 – A goddess is an icon of strength, intelligence, wisdom and beauty.

Whistler Blackcomb’s week for women features all-ladies ski and snowboard camps, shopping nights, parties and a goal to raise $5,000 for the BC Cancer Foundation

WHISTLER, BC, February 25, 2008 – A goddess is an icon of strength, intelligence, wisdom and beauty. Every woman has an inner goddess who is, too often, lost in the hustle and bustle of daily life. Whistler Blackcomb calls upon all ladies to celebrate and indulge their feminine spirit at Charge of the Goddess: A Week for Women in Whistler running March 1-9.

In celebration of women’s week, Whistler Blackcomb challenges the community to help raise $5,000 for the BC Cancer Foundation. Donations will be given to the BC Cancer Agency to help make much-needed improvements to the mammography waiting room and breast cancer patient education rooms in Vancouver. The BC Cancer Agency has the province’s only digital mammography machine, making faster more accurate breast cancer diagnosis available.

"Patients undergoing breast biopsies spend a lot time in the Digital Mammography waiting area," explains Dr. Gwen Harrison, Diagnostic Imaging, at the BC Cancer Agency. "It would be great to be able to provide patients and their families with a comfortable and uplifting environment while undergoing these stressful procedures."

To donate, visit and click on the BC Cancer Foundation logo or watch for the donation boxes at various locations in Whistler Village.

“Whether it’s donating to a great cause, shredding the slopes with the girls, splurging on a sassy new outfit, savouring delicious wines or dancing the night away, there is a well-rounded calendar of events for every lady to indulge in,” says Michelle Leroux, Public Relations and Communications Manager for Whistler Blackcomb.

The Glacier Shop Goddess Night, presented by Naked Grape, runs March 3 from 5 to 8pm. The evening features a personal shopper & stylist from Fashion Magazine, music, a special visit from Oakley and wine tasting with Naked Grape Vineyard. Free makeup application and professional consultation will also be provided courtesy of Lily Cosmetic Boutique.

The Showcase Goddess Night, presented by Diet Coke, runs March 5 from 7 to 10pm. Shoppers can browse through a selection of designer labels fit for a goddess, groove to an in-house DJ, enjoy appetizers and drinks and pamper themselves with free beauty treatments provided by Farfalla Salon.

Donations in support of the BC Cancer Foundation will be collected at both shopping nights.

Charge of the Goddess
revs up on the final weekend (March 8-9) with 40 per cent off all-ladies camps. Roxy Women's All Star Ski and Snowboard Camp, Roxy Women's Learn to Ski Camp and Burton Learn to Ride Camp provide two-day camps featuring a positive environment in which to bring out the Athena in all of us.

For the ultimate test of a goddess’ strength and ability, there’s Queen of the Rail on March 8. Winners of this rail jam will receive a percentage of the cash entry fees as a prize and all participants are entered in to win fantastic draw prizes from Showcase, Glacier Shop, Atomic, Nintendo, TELUS, DNA and more. Registration is $15 and runs from 5 to 6pm at Whistler Kids at the base of Blackcomb Mountain.

Everyone knows girls “just wanna have fun.” SKKY Vodka and Grand Marnier Present A Night With Venus at the Garibaldi Lift Co. (GLC) on March 8. This all-girls party will have the boys knocking down the doors. Ladies are invited to dress in their best Greek-inspired attire for an enchanted evening done up in true Grecian style. Groove to electro rock and booty shaking tunes provided by DJ Dani, Lon and Vadim. All partygoers will receive a free Growers Cider and Cosmo martini. To help raise money for the BC Cancer Foundation, delicious Greek Gods will be available for rent. Have them carry your bag for the night or fetch your drinks. Tickets are $15 at the door and the event begins at 9pm. Doors will be open to guys at midnight – if there’s room.
