“The seasons are what a symphony ought to be: four perfect movements in harmony with each other.”
— Arthur Rubinstein
Welcome to Whistler! This issue has some thrilling adventures in store for you and helpful information to complement your visit. As winter descends upon Whistler, we begin the all-too-familiar task of digging out the winter layers, gloves, toques, and ski and snowboard gear. Though it may sound arduous, we do it with great anticipation for the endless opportunities of winter recreation available in the Sea to Sky Corridor. Whistlerites look forward to bundling up and venturing out into the cooler temperatures.
As we transition into winter, I find myself pausing to reflect on memories of yet another great summer and fall. We are so fortunate to have four very distinct seasons, each with its own attributes and each showering us with its bounty of natural wonders and cornucopia of seasonal activities for the whole family to enjoy. Winter, spring, summer or fall, Whistler offers beauty and adventure — a place we feel is like no other.
Regardless of the season, each time I drive into Whistler, I am always in awe of the grandeur of our surrounding mountains and pristine valley. I look forward to strolling the Village to enjoy the sights and sounds; to see the excited first-time visitors jostling for position in front of the Olympic rings to capture that memorable image; and to hear the chatter of visitors expressing a never-ending array of adjectives to describe the heart-pounding activity they have experienced today and their appreciation for the magnificence that is our everyday backdrop.
It is our sincere pleasure to share our Sea to Sky communities with you, and hope that you, too, appreciate experiencing our changing seasons. And know that when you leave, you already may be planning your next visit to this spectacular four-season destination that we call home!
We look forward to welcoming you again soon.
Thank you for sharing this issue with us. Lace up those winter boots, don that toque, pull on those gloves and head out to play.
