"Even if you aren't on the ground in Whistler, people will be able to live Kokanee Crankworx vicariously with the app by tuning into the constant social media engagement, by checking out our user-generated photo galleries and videos on demand, not to mention by watching our daily, live-streaming event webcasts with freecaster.tv."
