#GOFest2016 Instagram RECAP

For a few special weeks in May, the wonderful worlds of summer and winter collide, creating a unique experience for mountain and wilderness lovers alike – the option to ski or snowboard, PLUS bike, hike, golf, and SUP. On one of these very special Whistler weekends lies GO Fest; four days of action packed outdoor activities, indoor art experiences, and live concerts in the Village Square.

Among the adventure options was the #GOFest2016 Digital Meet-up – a chance for Social Media savvy strangers to connect and snap their hearts away on a guided tour of lost lake’s walking and biking trails. The result – a whole lot of happy faces, new friendships and fresh ’grams.

Here’s a peek into our favourite snapshots shared on social media from the entire #GOFest2016 shebang.

Nikkey got her start in Whistler as an outdoor guide and the habit of talking about the place has clearly stuck. Whistler’s general laid-back lifestyle and immediate access to fun is what’s kept her around. When not hanging out on the Whistler Insider team Nikkey works as a freelance creative for outdoor and wellness brands. Nikkey’s favourite Whistler animal is the marmot- she just wants to pinch those fluffy cheeks! (but never would because she respects wildlife and really likes having her fingers attached to her hands.)
