Thank you everyone for coming to Creekbread to eat pizza in the name of Nordic Skiing! The silent auction was a great success and made possible through the support of many local businesses: Whistler Chocolate, SASS Designs, Four Seasons, Nicklaus North, Nagomi Sushi, Quantum Vitamins, The Adventure Group, Fairmont / Vida Spa, The Spa at Nita Lake Lodge, Rim Rock Cafe, Delta Village Suites Whistler, Hilton Whistler, The Grocery Store, Sushi Village, Slope Slide Supply, RMOW, Sea to Sky Car Wash, Peiffer Family, Sicotte/Wittenberg Family, and Sladen/Doak Family.
