Mercer Report at Big White

Canadian funny man Rick Mercer is at Big White today (Monday).

Mercer is at the resort filming a segment for his hit CBC program 'The Mercer Report'.

He is filming a special report on the Canadian Paralympic Snowboard Cross team which has been training, on and off, at the hill since the beginning of December.

Yesterday, with the help of the coach Candice Drouin, the Big White groomers built an exact replica of the Sochi Para Snowboard Cross course.

The athletes will train all week at Big White before leaving for Sochi next Monday.

The Paralympic Games run from March 7 to 16.
