Evolution of Skiing In Whistler – Nov.28
Whistler Museum Launches New Exhibit “The Evolution of Skiing”.
The Whistler Museum is proud to announce the launch of our brand new exhibit “The Evolution of Skiing.” The museum has been closed since mid-October as we have been renovating and updating almost half of our exhibit space, making this our most significant exhibit upgrade in over 3 years. The project was made possible thanks to generous support from the Whistler-Blackcomb Foundation.
Whistler’s meteoric rise from an isolated community to one of North America’s pre-eminent mountain resorts is an inspiring, influential, and highly entertaining story. Our new exhibit shares many aspects of this fascinating transformation. We have transformed the space to resemble that most nostalgic winter setting, the ski cabin.
Within the retrofitted space we have a whole slew of new informative panels, display cases full of artifacts, interactive components, and some pretty big surprises that we just can’t wait to share. We don’t want to give away all our secrets, so you’ll just have to come and see them for yourselves!
While we think our new exhibit is plenty of an attraction in itself, we decided to sweeten the pot and have a full program of launch events to compliment our displays and give you even more reason to pay us a visit. Here’s a quick overview:
November 28 – Official Exhibit Launch. We’re dying to show off our new exhibit, come check it out! There will be some short speeches by museum staff & board members, but the focus for the evening will simply be exploring the additions and updates to our permanent exhibits. 6pm- 9pm. Admission will be free to all. Read more
