Inside a disco-light-spotted cage, a beautiful couple writhed. He, an Adonis-type with tattooed biceps, gyrated while she, lithely petite in low-cut jeans, shimmied suggestively to the thumping beats. Welcome to Buffalo Bill's at Whistler Village, where the apres-ski scene is as prodigious as the legendary downhill terrains nearby.

The Vancouver Canucks suspended Pavel Bure without pay Wednesday after the club's leading scorer made good on his threat not to show at training camp at Whistler, Canada. Last month Bure cited "personal reasons" for wanting to be traded and said he would never play in a Vancouver uniform again. * Peter Stastny and Michel Goulet, two former Quebec Nordique teammates, will be inducted into hockey's Hall of Fame in Toronto on Nov.

Some slopes have shut down for the season, but skiers have until May 27 to hit the slopes at Blackcomb Mountain in Whistler, Canada. Whistler, home to the 2010 Winter Olympics' alpine ski events, is 80 miles east of Vancouver. Blackcomb's sister peak, Whistler Mountain, closed for the season Sunday, but Blackcomb had more than 36 feet of snow this winter and is enjoying one of the longest ski seasons in North America. Spring brings some unique ski conditions, such as “corn snow.” It's the rough, granular snow that results from alternate thawing and freezing.
