Opening Day Whistler—Always worth it.

Opening Day Whistler—Always worth it.

Humans are creatures of habit and routine. For most Whistler locals opening day is a new beginning, a fresh start on a new season of challenges and good times. Opening Day is like Christmas, New Years and Valentines Day all rolled into one. From the world-traveling pros to the local backcountry hardcores. Everyone is on the mountain and happy to be there. Opening day means we can all get back to doing what we came here to do in the first place—rip, ride and be gnarly.

Feet Banks

Feet Banks moved to Whistler at age 12 so his parents could live the dream and ski as much as possible. He ended up living it too. After leaving home Feet did a few good stints in warmer climates and 4 years of writing school before returning to the mountains to make ski movies, hammer out a journalism career and avoid the 9-5 lifestyle as long as possible. He’s been a hay farmer, a hole digger, a magazine editor and has a jump named after him on Blackcomb Mountain, Feet’s Air. It’s tiny.
