No Free Rides: Whistler Sabbatical Winner Returns

No Free Rides: Whistler Sabbatical Winner Returns

In March of 2012 “Lucky” Luke Dillon won the Whistler Sabbatical Project and came to town for a one-month, all-inclusive Whistler dream vacation. Along with his skiing partner “Tag-along” Tim, Luke enjoyed a powder filled month of Whistler adventure. The hook was set and Luke and Tim promised “They’d be back.”

In March 2013 Luke and Tim did return, but this time there’s no free rides and they’re couch surfing with friends. But the skiing is as incredible as ever and nothing says “Welcome back to Canada” like an NHL hockey game. Check it out.

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.
