It’s Only A Month Away From Ski Season Starting in Whistler
The excitement for ski season in Pemberton and Whistler is palpable. With the snow beginning to creep lower and lower it's hard to contain all the anticipation we have for Whistler Blackcomb's opening day.
JUST IN Whistler Mountain will be opening one week EARLY! Opening day has been moved to Friday, November 17th.
Celebrate Whistler Blackcomb's opening week with the Winter Kick-Off. For the second year in a row, The North Face and Whistler Blackcomb have partnered up to celebrate the return of the ski year with events, contests, and more.
Whistler Blackcomb Winter Kick-Off
Join the fun at the North Face Base Camp in Skier's Plaza from 7PM to 10PM on Friday, November 24. This free event is geared for all ages with live music, a beer garden, giveaways, food trucks, fire pits, and much more. Grab your friends after a long day of skiing and check out the kick-off party! You'll also be able to sign-up for the campout contest here, which you can learn more about below.
This November 25th, The North Face is offering a unique chance for you and a friend to camp overnight 1850m up in the mountains.
