Cliff Jennings #32307
(Whistler, British Columbia, Canada)  
Lived in Whistler since 1965. I did climbs in the Columbia Ice field area in 1965 & 66 while working as a tour guide to the Athabaska Glacier. In Whistler I was involved with the construction of the original lifts. In the first year of Whistler skiing Jim Rice from Montana was doing a promotional video I was a part of. I bought his Pentax camera from him which I used for 25 years until the strap broke while taking a picture on Green Lake. The camera was replaced by Pentax with a new K1000 at Manufacturer's cost. All of the pictures posted prior to 2000 were taken with those cameras. In March of 2009 I experienced a heart attack on Whistler Mountain after skiing Peak to Creek. Fortunately it occurred coming down the steps at Raven's Nest & as there was junior downhill training on the Dave Murray Downhill a young patroller noticed my condition & called for assistance. Cathy Jewett (Cathy was on the patrol when my daughter Sara & a friend was rescued from the steep gully under what is now the Peak to Peak Gondola) soon arrived & determined that a helicopter was needed. I was flown down to the Whistler Medical Clinic where I was stabilized while waiting for the Medivac Helicopter. I was then flown to Vancouver General & right into the operating room where the first of two stents was put in. The heart attack occurred about 10:30 & I was on the operating table at 13:30.

This was the year that Whistler was celebrating the 50th anniversary. Cliff Jennings: 50 Years of Whistler Gold
