Discovering Local Whistler Artists

Not surprising in the least, Whistler is the home to several multi-talented people. The longer you are here, the more aware of this you become. Whether you have realized it or not, when it comes to the arts, the evidence of local Whistler artists is present in community galleries all around town. I recently picked up my car in...

Follow the Girls: WSSF – Day 3

The skiing was going off yesterday at the World Ski and Snowbaord Festival! The girls were killing it up in the Blackcomb Terrain Park in the morning, then the men were throwing down on the slopestyle course and for the Gibbons Big Air jump in the afternoon. It was so impressive to be up there amongst the action; even though me and my friend were both on crutches we just took the chairlifts up and some very kind ski patrollers took us down on a toboggan to watch. Thank you guys, it was hilarious and quite an adventure!

Follow the Girls: WSSF – Day 2

Day numero unos went off preeetty well…! Considering the weather made the slopestyle competition look pretty grey up on the mountain, everyone in town was still buzzed on the official start of WSSF. And who can deny it was fun to get up on the hill, especially knowing that all the snow falling made for one of the latest powder days on record for Whistler. Due to the snowfall, the slopestyle finals were moved from yesterday to today - the same day as the Gibbons Big Air. Women's slopestyle followed by Gibbons Big Air (on the Shack jump in Blackcomb Park) kicked off at 10.30am. Men's slope finals kicked off swiftly behind from 11.15am, with their Big Air finale from 1.15pm onwards.

Follow the Girls: WSSF – Day 1

Winter is non-stop; so many skiing and snowboarding, events and parties. The World Ski and Snowboard Festival (WSSF) is an end of season celebration for all this, with the pros competing for the world title and the bars putting on the biggest nights of the year. For 2015 I wanted to offer unique perspectives from the locals, and also represent female participation in the festival this year - for the first time women will compete in the Gibbons Big Air!
