2016 Whistler Ski Pre-Season Activities
November has begun and it’s still raining in the village folks! But the peaks have been getting tons of snow and we already have the pre-season itch. Well there’s good news, November has plenty of arts and culture to keep you busy in between pre-season training. From the ongoing Whistler Artwalk events to Cornucopia, Fall for the Arts is going strong in Whistler the year!
Cornucopia — November 10 - 20
Every day of Whistler Cornucopia is filled with an abundance of events that run from morning until late into the evening, ranging from the educational to the adventurous to those that simply encourage indulgence and having a very good time. A night out filled with delicious food and drinks, good company and dancing is a fine thing indeed, and in Whistler we're definitely not above trading hiking boots for high heels after the sun goes down.
Check out our previous blog post for more info about Cornucopia.

Tired of the weak bus service in the Sea to Sky corridor? Well BC Transit wants your help to fix that! They’re looking to expand services from Vancouver to Pemberton and surrounding area and are asking Sea to Sky residents to complete a small survey. Help them out and maybe the corridor will get a decent transit system one day!
