Every year since 1996 Whistler has held World Ski & Snowboard festivities, which have morphed into what we know it now to be – a multi-day extravaganza of live music, skiing and riding, events, art and parties. This non-stop celebration of mountain culture is highly anticipated year after year by locals and visitor alike, and in the social sphere we love to see how people experience the festival! A big thanks to all of you who came and partied (and who are now probably sleeping…) for all of your epic energy and enthusiasm, and of course for sharing in the stoke of Whistler’s unparalleled mountain experience. Whether you were here and these photos and videos serve you as a joyous reflection of good times, or you’re living vicariously through them (there’s always next year!) …enjoy this World Ski & Snowboard Festival Social Recap!

Along with our regular Insiders, we have a host of local and visiting authors keen to share their stories. Most of them don't actually look like bears, but they are just as lovable.
