May is known as the transition month in Whistler. The month when you can still catch some good turns on the mountains then head down to the Valley floor for a bike ride or quick 9 holes on the golf course. GO Fest celebrates the outdoor culture of Whistler with a series of outdoor activities that can be enjoyed by the entire family.

Activities on deck include paddle boarding, disc golf, yoga classes, tennis clinics, volleyball tournaments and the Great Snow, Earth and Water Race. The latter event is always a source of great competition and entertainment. During the event participants compete in a marathon style race, where each teammate is responsible for completing a different stage of the race. In total there are 6 stages including: snowboard/ski touring, downhill ski/snowboard, downhill biking, running, canoeing and XC biking.

This event has deep roots in the community and brings together all aspects of mountain living and the Whistler lifestyle. Check out this amazing footage from the event being held in 1988.
