Reports are coming in that Whistler police have arrested the woman who allegedly helped a BASE jumper who jump out of Whistler’s Peak-2-Peak gondola on February 6. The local woman could face up to 10 years for charges of mischief over $5,000 and 2 years for obstruction of justice. The Jumper could also face up to 10 years for the stunt but police have not yet found him. Word on the street is that he’s from another country and may have fled.

“The woman was arrested at her place of employment just after 3 p.m. CBC reported that the female has worked at Longhorn’s Saloon for three years, but this has not been confirmed by police, according to LeClair. Police have recommended charges of mischief over $5,000, which carries a maximum prison sentence of 10 years, and obstruction for providing officers with misleading information. The max penalty for obstruction is two years in prison. Whistler Blackcomb has said that both suspects could face a lifetime mountain ban.” piquenewsmagazine.com
