Join the celebration at the Fourth Annual JP Memorial in Whistler

“Open to anyone who appreciates snow and likes to have a good time.” The fourth annual JP Memorial (JPM), hosted by Alpine Initiatives is to be held in Whistler, BC, April 10-13. Celebrating the late JP Auclair, a landmark skier, father and—to many—a hero, the event is comprised of pros, industry folk and anyone else who appreciates sliding around on snow. “The JP Memorial is like-minded people gathering together to remember a hero and have a lot of fun.”

“We are excited to continue the JP Memorial in Whistler by collaborating with WSSF to bring the event to life,” said Alpine Initiatives Board Member Ingrid Sirois in a recent press release. “It’s a great fit to host the event as Whistler meant so much to JP. It gave him friends and a community, opportunities to grow as a skier, and shaped part of who he was. It will allow a broader audience to celebrate the legacy of JP and grow the awareness around Alpine Initiatives.”
