The arrival of spring usually marks longer days, sunnier weather, and all kinds of costumes and debauchery for ski resort communities. This year, however, Whistler Blackcomb ski resort is a drastically different scene. It’s a ghost town with deserted slopes and lifts and gondolas sitting silently. The resort was ordered closed this past March when provincial authorities discovered
