The storytelling traditions of the Squamish and Lil’wat peoples are mostly oral but committing the stories and legends of the First Nations peoples who have inhabited the Sea to Sky Corridor for thousands of years to writing, and sharing them on signs and kiosks along Highway 99, has helped spread those legends to a much wider audience.

Meat But No Potatoes

Ketogenic, paleo, gluten-free — low-carb diets are all the rage and we don’t mind one bit.

Art - Taking the Leap Summer/Fall 2018

Art - Taking the Leap

Finding fresh artistic talent takes a leap of faith. There is no proven formula for recognizing a future star, and Whistler gallery owners and directors rely on faith to take on new artists, and so much more. “Discovering” talent takes research, time, and considerable support to incubate up-and-coming artists.
