Just in time for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, my article on futuristic ski jumps with a sidebar on alpine dining in British Columbia appeared in the February issue of Air Canada’s in-flight magazine, enRoute. (The art that accompanies my article is stunning.)

These ski jumps that are architectural marvels seem to be part of a larger movement of combining function and beauty. It’s too bad this trend didn’t get to Whistler in time for the 2010 Winter Olympics–its ski jumps appear lacking compared to the new ones being built in Europe.
And researching the alpine dining piece just solidified my longstanding desire to spend more time in British Columbia.
