WHISTLER: We're Giving Away The Trip Of A Lifetime
With the temperature dialling back in the Southern Hemisphere it can only mean one thing – snow season is fast approaching! It’s that time of year to round up your crew, get your season passes in order and kit up for endless days and endless runs on the slopes of Australia’s back country resorts. This year though, there’s a chance for you and a friend to carve fresh powder long beyond the close of the Australian season. We’re teaming up with the lucky crew at Tourism Whistler to bring you the chance to win a trip of a lifetime to the world-class Whistler and Blackcomb mountains during their prime snow season!
Whistler holds a special place in the heart of snowboarders across Australia, and we thought we’d remind ourselves why:
Let’s be honest – this stuff is what we’re here for. Whistler Blackcomb is the playground of choice for the pros and for good reason, with two side-by-side mountains offering a diverse range of steeps, alpine bowls, easy cruisers and terrain parks with a total of 8,171 acres of shreddable terrain between them. To make it easy to navigate, there are 37 lifts available. And let’s not forget the infamous PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola linking Whistler to Blackcomb with mind blowing postcard-worthy views to boot.
Due to its location, Whistler boasts world-class snow conditions, with an average record-breaking annual dump of 38.5 feet. Couple that with one of the longest snow seasons in North America, and it’s easy to see why Whistler is consistently ranked the Number 1 resort in North America, and one of the best ski resorts in the world.
World-class runs and unlimited fresh powder are all well and good, but the icing on top is the world of opportunity that awaits after-hours when your muscles are happily tired and you’re ready to let off some steam. Whistler Village is like a buzzing home away from home packed with bars, clubs, accommodation, shops, open-air concerts, street entertainment and markets, connected by iconic stone pathways that weave in and out of the town. And the best part? Everyone is there for the same reason – chasing another epic snow season – which makes for some pretty good vibes!
As part of the Tourism Whistler x SurfStitch Competition we’ve teamed up with some legendary local businesses who live and breathe the snow season stoke. The prize includes return transportation to Whistler, 7 nights at the centrally-located Aava Whistler Hotel, an epic snowmobile experience with Head-Line Mountain Holidays, a ziplining adventure with The Adventure Group Whistler and a night of edible delight at Alta Bistro restaurant. And to make sure you’re kitted out in the latest apparel while on the trip of a lifetime, SurfStitch are also donating a $1,500 voucher packed with snow gear for you and a mate!
