Welcome to the year of the DO…so do Whistler and let’s make some memories!
They are saying that consumers are more focussed now more than ever on what they DO rather than what they HAVE. We absolutely agree.
It’s becoming more about building on meaningful and memorable experiences rather than physical things. Whistler oozes with opportunity for this. With that said, here are some ideas to help you with your Whistler DO this year.
Winter Olympics 2018
Throw on your festive gear and head to the Village for a number of Olympic activities and events with live music, Olympic themed activities and Olympic Plaza broadcasts throughout the Winter Games.
Ice Kingdom Whistler
From now through March 31st, feast your eyes on the impressive 40,000 square feet of ice and snow sculptures inspired by the 300 year old Chinese tradition of gathering and creating beautiful sculptures out of ice and snow. Whistler Golf Course is hosting and will feature ice slides for children, interactive sculptures and brilliant light displays.
April 10th through 15th brings us the ever popular World Ski and Snowboard Festival! This snow and ski festival, coming into it’s 23rd year, celebrates all things Whistler. Ski races, big air competitions, live music and entertainment, and popular filmmaker showdown. Excitement to the extreme and not to be missed!
