Whistler Debates, Backcountry Access

Think the Spearhead Huts are the greatest idea since fat skis?  Does the ongoing rush to the backcountry, risks spoiling the solitude (and fresh pow) that draws us out there in the first place?  How do we best maintain a relationship with wilderness in our increasingly urban, online world?  If you have ever pondered such matters, this night is for you.  Come watch prominent members of the backcountry community debate the merits of improved access to that rugged and remote paradise, the backcountry.

This should be an entertaining night of heated debates and talking about spending time in the mountains just in time to get stoked to the start of the season.  Hope to see you there!

Debaters:  Alex Wigley, Frank Salter, Michel Beaudry, and Wayne Flann
Where:  Millennium Place
When:  Monday, October 29th, 8pm (doors @ 7:30)
Tickets:  $10 advance/$12 day of event, available at Millennium Place and Whistler Museum.

  2. Hi there! I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about ski report in your area. I am glad to stop by your site and know more about ski report. Keep it up! This is a good read. You have such an interesting and informative page.
    We founded SkiReports.com in 2011 with the mission to inform avid skiers and snowboarders of what's happening on the mountain. Information including weather, snow reports, and user-feedback from mountain helps us evaluate where we head to once we load up our ski racks. Through a simple interface, we can deliver information in a kick-ass format that is easy to understand and evaluate.
