Whistler

  • Ever wonder how Whistler Blackcomb got its name? It’s a cool story that reaches way back into the geological past of the Coastal Mountain range and has something to do with a punk hairstyle.

    The VSO comes back to Whistler Olympic Plaza to perform in the open mountain air for free. Sit on the grass surrounded by trees and mountains and listen to the classical compositions of Beethoven, Mozart, Mendelsshon, Stravinsky, Dvorak and more.

    There is no official way to celebrate Canada Day. Many stay in their backyards with friends and have barbecues, and many celebrate with crowds and music, face-painting, fireworks and flags. Whistler creates a four-day Canada Day event that has all of that and more for people who shout proudly "I am Canadian!" and who embrace the cultural mosaic that Canada has become. Come celebrate Canada's 148th birthday in the fresh mountain air.

    Are you tough enough to face down the Ring of Fire or the Arctic Enema? We thought so, too. Set in the beautiful setting of Whistler, B.C., with spectacular views and terrain is what makes this the perfect setting for the adventure-filled competition known as the Tough Mudder.

    We beer-drinking mountain folk all know the glorious feeling of drinking cold beer after a great day on the ski hill, or after hiking, nay, conquering a great mountain in the summer heat. Whistler Village is pouring pints from nearly 30 different breweries in one single day, so don't miss this chance to sample hundreds of brews, just please drink responsibly.
