Five fall events to check out in Whistler

Besides the start of snow season in early November, Whistler’s arts and culture scene transitions from summer to fall.

We’ve rounded up a list of five awesome events to check out in Whistler this fall.

1. BC premiere of Anywhere From Here

Skiing is unquestionably one of the most diverse recreational pursuits imaginable. By the time lifelong skiers reach middle age, they’ve dabbled in or dedicated themselves to a myriad of facets within the sport. Each facet provides an entirely new set of experiences, thrills, challenges, and rewards.

Matchstick Productions’ 2022 ski film explores this world of opportunities through the eyes of a 12-year-old freestyle phenomenon. Through his voice, the audience hears the skiing aspirations of a kid who just wants to play and doesn’t have to ponder “real life” yet. 

This film is packed with a star-studded cast of skiers, shredding across the globe.

WHEN: Friday, October 21, 6:30pm and 9:30 p.m.

WHERE: Maury Young Arts Centre, 4335 Blackcomb Way


2. Arts Whistler Live! Presents: Raven Spirit Dance

Through the medium of contemporary dance, Raven Spirit Dance shares stories and experiences from an Indigenous worldview. This performance features special guests Wagana Aboriginal Dancers from Australia.

Performing Spine of the Mother—an innovative collaboration which began with Indigenous artists in Canada and Peru—the dancers trace the inner terrain of their bodies as women. The “Spine of Mother Earth” metaphor is the name Indigenous Elders in South America gave to the Andean mountain range that spans from the base in Argentina through the Americas and ends at the tip of Alaska. In this dance, their bodies become the landscape like the mountain ranges that connect the North and South (the Eagle and the Condor), and through this find their kinetic connection to others transmitting impulse, breath, and spirit.

Raven Spirit Dance will be joined by special guests, the Wagana Aboriginal Dancers, who incorporate Australian Aboriginal song and dance from the Wiradjuri peoples—“people of the three rivers”—with the beautiful sound of the yidaki in their piece Wurimbirra: to take care.”

WHEN: Friday, October 28, 2022, 8:00 p.m.

WHERE: Maury Young Arts Centre, 4335 Blackcomb Way
