Last chance for CPB 2011

Ski liftThere’s currently a snowpack of almost eight feet in Whistler, British Columbia, and the ski conditions couldn’t be better on well groomed trails through some of the most picturesque scenery you’ll find anywhere. Each year, snow industry, travel, and internet publications rate and review the top resorts of the world. Consistently ranked as No. 1, Whistler tops mountain resort rankings year after year.

That’s the setting for SCA’s 16th Annual Update on Cardiopulmonary Bypass, March 6-11, 2011. The world-class educational program will include sessions on:

Fairmont LobbyPlenty of time is built into the program for recreation and exploration of the area. From its start as a fishing lodge in the early 20th century, to its season in the spotlight during the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, Whistler has always been considered a prime destination for adventurous spirits.

Located in the Coast Mountain range of British Columbia, Whistler is known for reliable snow and skiing conditions, receiving an average annual snowfall of more than 33 feet. Because Whistler is near the coast, temperatures are moderate through the winter season, rarely dipping below 12°F in the valley and 5°F in the alpine region during the coldest part of the year. You can generally expect 22°F average daily alpine temperatures during the CPB meeting.

Things to do:


With fresh food, amazing views, and mountaintop venues, Whistler offers everything from gourmet fine dining to casual fireside meals. Whistler’s lineup of award-winning restaurants offers appetizing fare from different ethnicities and regions, with many of them featuring organic and locally sourced ingredients.
