The Attention Era Media team is heading from Milwaukee to Whistler (British Columbia), just north of Vancouver, Canada.
Where is Whistler, British Columbia? It’s in Canada on the West Coast.
We’ll be shooting video and photos at the Whistler Film Festival, Intercontinental Cup, Bald Eagles, and some amazing professional skiers and snowboarders. Stay tuned!
Follow the team’s tweets and Instagram photos at #MKE2BC or the Attention Era Media Facebook page.
Next time we’ll have to organize a group trip. This place is amazing.
