I'm not a resident of Canada at all and I still won. Woooo Hoooo!!!!!

It even comes with some official looking cartoon images (taken straight off the real whistler website) :D

So, I decided to visit the official whistler website and check if I really did win the real deal. Well, it turns out I did not even enter. :(

Yeah, but you gotta admit that for a moment you probably got really excited, eh? Too bad you won't be going.
