Mum’s (and friends) Mountain Classic

Whistler BC • April 10-15, 2018

Crowd Scene at the World Ski and Snowboard Festival

Wednesday, April 11 - 9am: Check-in at Merlin's

Hey mums! Need to feel the wind through your hair as you race down the slopes without a kid-based care in the world? Itching to work-out some toddler tantrums one sweeping curve at a time? Want to hang out with people who can go to the toilet all by themselves? This event is for you.

  1. Grab your planks - be it one or two, both skiers and snowboarding mums are welcome.
  2. Bring your tribe; whether that’s your other mum possy, step-mum, grand-mum, and any friends who have helped you change the odd diaper, made date night possible, or picked up the wine.
  3. Plan your outfit. This year’s theme is the 1920’s - think flapper dresses, feather boers, and Great Gatsby.
  4. Book the babysitter - we suggest leaving room for some apres action, just sayin’, this event gets fun.

Pre-register in person at any Guest Relations or Ski & Snowboard School Sales locations or by calling the Reservation Centre at 1-800-766-0449.
