Looks like Justin Timberlake loves an adventure! The singer-actor recently rang in his 31st birthday in the rugged back country near Fernie, British Columbia, where he stayed at a local resort, Island Lake Lodge, with a large group of friends for three days. Timberlake and his pals were there for the off-trail snowcat skiing and snowboarding, but there was also opportunity for relaxation.
According to a source, the chefs prepared a special birthday cake for Justin's dinner party, and he was thrilled by the attention.
While there, a newly engaged Timberlake stopped into a local outfitter, Commit Snow and Skate, to pick up some equipment for his trip, the store's owner confirms. According to a staff member there, Timberlake was "excited and looked forward to some cat skiing" and he came in to shop with a group of people.
Though employees were mostly mum about Timberlake's stay, buzz built about his visit in the community. According to the Calgary Herald, "There was a lot of talk in town. Lots of word of mouth. A lot of people had heard about it or knew about it."

Owen Wilson's preferred method of transportation in Vancouver? His bicycle!
The actor, who was soon back in L.A. for the SAG Awards, pedaled to Cardero's Restaurant, where he joined friends for brunch after zipping through downtown in a peacoat and hat. When he pulled up, the actor asked if he could park his ride in the kitchen, and the restaurant's manager obliged. Wilson grabbed a seat by the fireplace, then enjoyed views of the harbor and Stanley Park during his 45-minute meal with pals.
After brunch, the actor headed out on his bike again for a solo ride around town – and was later spotted in Stanley Park. While in town, the actor also enjoyed the nightlife, meeting up with friends for Italian food at The Bibo and, later, Pierre's Champagne Lounge inside Chinois Restaurant, where he attracted a crowd of female fans who spent the night chatting – then, later, Tweeting about their encounters. – Christine Kilpatrick
