How To Celebrate Spring in Whistler

Spring begins tomorrow and we thought you'd like some ways to celebrate. Winter is winding down but certainly not over yet, and summer is right around the corner. But stay in present-moment awareness and you'll find plenty of ways to enjoy this season with us.

Right Now: Celebrate TED Active & Butterfly Effect

TED Active -- Happening right now, March 17 - 21. TED is celebrating 30 years, and returning to its snowy roots with this, "The Next Chapter" Coming together to discuss innovations past and present...and future. A standard pass to the event is $3750. Workshops will be held in an array of categories, and there will be ample opportunity for discussion.

The Butterfly Effect -- This is a free event on March 21, celebrating the idea that we can be the change. Dress in an Aloha spirit, and be ready to load up to Pika's at 8:30. The event begins at 9:00 and is free. Look for the yellow "BE signs" and be ready for an awesome, empowering event that encourages women in sport. This year's Whistler event will benefit the Howe Sound Women's Centre Society.

In April: Spring Fling & WSSF

Spring Fling -- Saturday, April 5, come help support the Whistler Film Festival and eat some delicious food. This event helps launch Whistler's spring season with a "lively apres" from 4:00 to 6:30 at the Hilton Whistler Resort. Tickets are $50 and guests will sample wines paired with foods from some of Whistler's best restaurants. The fundraiser will support annual programs for Canadian artists.

WSSF -- April 11 - 20, you can already feel the excitement, we're sure. This 10-day celebration of all things skiing and snowboarding is the biggest annual gathering of winter sports, music, arts and culture in North America. There are a zillion free events -- too many to keep track of -- and many, many events already on the official schedule.

And in May: The GO Fest

Go Fest -- With four full days of events and activities celebrating the outdoors, the only thing you'll have trouble deciding is what to do first! This is the first year of this festival, which takes place on the Victoria Day Long Weekend.
