The Canada Is Awesome network has websites and social media extensions in Vancouver, Whistler, Calgary and Toronto, with many more on the horizon. Our goal is simple: we let people know about all of the awesome things that make their Canadian cities great, despite the bad. I'm the founder of this network and each week in this What's Awesome post I bring you the top stories from each of our properties, giving you access to the best of our content all in one place.


Feed Someone in Need by Dining Out MealShare

Mealshare is a great charity concept that makes dining out an awesome thing to do. Working with partner restaurants around the city, certain menu items at each location are designated as “Mealshare” items. When a patron like you or me orders this item, the restaurant will automatically make a donation to Mealshare.

Your own little castle on Nita Lake in Whistler

I don’t suppose we could’ve chosen a better weekend to head up to Whistler than this past one, as the resort municipality experienced an insane snowfall (more than two feet) over the span of our trip. We’ll get to the winter activities in the next post but for now it’s all about the accommodations at Nita Lake Lodge.


Peak to Valley Race & Fundraiser

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Peak to Valley race, taking place January 31st and February 1st 2014.

The Peak to Valley race is a very unique race that has a definite place in Whistler’s history. The brainchild of legendary ski-racer, Dave Murray, the race starts at the (almost) top of Whistler Mountain at the Saddle and finishes at Creekside.
