Enjoy 32 minutes of skiing history in Whistler Blackcomb’s 50th anniversary video

“For the last five decades, Whistler Blackcomb has left its mark on those who are drawn to the mountains,” writes the resort via Youtube. “What started as a single Olympic dream in 1966 has evolved into the largest ski resort in North America, with a slew of accomplishments to back it up. From the resort’s adventure-seeking founders to its freestyle heydays—and breaking Guinness World Records along the way—snowsport industry legends recount the contributions that Whistler Blackcomb has made to skiing (and snowboarding) and the significance of its golden anniversary. But while 50 Years of Going Beyond solidifies the resort’s legacy in the past, there is no denying that the last fifty years is just the beginning.”

Enjoy thirty-two minutes of skiing history in Whistler Blackcomb’s 50th anniversary video. From the early days of its initial Olympic bid, to the New Canadian Air-force, Sarah Burke, Sean Pettit and beyond, the resort has played host to a collection of skiing’s finest. Cheers to fifty more epic years.
