The 16 days of Opening Day (almost better than Christmas): Day 15 - Fire & Ice

On the 15th day of Opening day, my true love gave tome…..wreckless abandon on the steep and deeps??

As Whistler and Whistlerites gear up for the start of anotheramazing season, in the 16 days leading up to Opening Day, I’m goingto give you 16 different ideas of some awesome things to do thiswinter season!

NUMBER 15:

Fire & Ice Show!
Kind of like a circus on snow.

Be amazed by some of Whistler’s best skiers and snowboarders asthey hit a massive big air jump through blazing rings of fire todazzle the crowd!
Fireworks, Firespinners, and snowflakes. What better way to spendyour Sunday evenings.

Best of all, it’s FREE for the whole family. 
It all goes down every sunday at the base of Whistler Mountainstarting at 6.30pm (between Dec 16 – Mar 3). Because of Daylightssavings time, as of March 10th the craziness starts at7.30pm. 

And if you happen to not have any kids with you, make sure tocheck out AFTERBURN – The Official after party.
Once the Fire & Ice are burnt out, the night rages on atGaribaldi Lift Co. (GLC) for the infamous Afterburn Party. Livemusic from Whistler favourites The Hairfarmers, and more prize giveaways than you can shake a stick at, it is definitely a prettymemorable (or maybe so good you don’t remember) way to cap off theweek.

Just remember, after 8pm it’s adults only! Maybe time to invest ina babysitter for the night?

The 16 days of Opening Day (almost better than Christmas): Day 16 – Tube Park

The 16 days of Opening Day (almost better than Christmas): Day 16 - Tube Park

On the 16th day of Opening day, my true love gave to me…..Pureand utter excitement in a Pear Tree??

As Whistler and Whistlerites gear up for the start of anotheramazing season, over the next 16 days, I’m going to give you 16different ideas of some awesome things to do this winterseason!

NUMBER 16:

Whistler Tube Park. Fun for kids, and kids at heart!

Located in the Base 2 Zone on Blackcomb Mountain, the Tube Parkoffers 1000 feet of pure fun each and everytime you slide down it!With 8 lanes varrying from Easy Green to Super Exciting Black,there’s a little something for everyone. 

And don’t worry about having to walk back up, as they’ve installeda state-of-the-art conveyor lift that makes travelling up to thetop easier than a walk in the park.

The only skill you need is the ability to sit back in a tube andlet yourself have the time of your life.
The whole family will have smiles from ear to ear after a couplehours tubing!
And the best part is that you can do this AFTER this lifts haveclosed on a great day on the mountain, as the Tube Park is openlate into the evening.

You can view the rates and hours here!
