Community Arts Programming (Whistler Arts Council)


MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR Welcome to the Resort Municipality of Whistler’s (RMOW) Fall/ Winter 2013-2014 Recreation Program Guide. We are fortunate to live in Whistler, an active community with a wide variety of recreational opportunities. The fall is a beautiful time in our community, with fresh mountain air, beautiful fall colours and abundant activities such as world-class golf, hiking, and cycling. This fall/winter guide provides a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities for all interests, ages and abilities. From preschool programming to yoga, Zumba, swimming, skating, squash, crosscountry skiing, and hockey, there is something for everyone. One of the things that drew me to Whistler was the year-round recreational opportunities. In the fall and winter, I run and walk with our dog frequently through the Emerald Forest to the Valley Trail and on to Rainbow Park. Early fall hikes with friends and family along the Flank Trail are a personal favourite. In the winter, I also enjoy downhill and cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and an occasional spin at Meadow Park or on the new permanent ice rink in Whistler Olympic Plaza. This winter I encourage you to get outdoors and explore the Lost Lake cross-country trails. With approximately 25 kilometres of groomed and track set trails for all levels, Lost Lake offers incredible views of the valley and surrounding mountains for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. For added adventure, explore Ski Callaghan south of town for another 100 kilometers of trails. Check out the variety of pass options now available for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. If you’re looking for a break from the outdoors, visit the Meadow Park Sports Centre, Whistler’s community hub for sports, recreation and more. The multipurpose facility provides residents and visitors with many services and amenities including fitness programs, swimming lessons, public skating, a six-lane 25-metre pool, beach style leisure pool, sauna, steam room and hot tub. The facility also houses an arena, squash courts, weight room, and a fitness studio. A few new recreation programs have been introduced this season including a youth-only swim on the last Saturday of each month as well as “game on” public skating dedicated to classic, playful activities and games on the ice. The RMOW provides the games and you bring the fun! We are also offering a 50 per cent discount on drop-in admissions for Tuesday and Friday evenings. I hope the municipal programs and amenities outlined in our guide provide a foundation for your recreation planning for the fall and winter season. Stay active this season and I’ll see you on the trails!

NEW THIS AUGUST: NON-RESIDENT FEE

* Playtime cards expire 1 year from date of purchase 1. “Drop In”: One time entry only. 2. “All Day”: Allows you to come and go all day long (In and out privileges). 3. Family includes you, your spouse & your dependants (18 years old & under). 4. Midweek/Midday: Valid Monday to Friday 11am to 1pm only (statutory days & holiday periods excluded for drop in rate). Cannot be used to access Value-Added Classes. 5. Early Bird/Late Owl: Valid 6am to 8:30am and after 9pm daily (statutory days & holiday periods excluded for drop in rate).

Combination discounts are available when members of the same family are buying 2 or more qualifying passes at the same time (includes Cross Country passes).

How much is this fee? The non-resident fee will be 33% more than the resident fee. What programs will be affected? Will drop in fees or pass prices be increased? Only certain programs you register for will be increased. Drop in rates, pass prices, licensed childcare programs, “Registration Service Agreement” programs and Personal Training programs will continue to be one fee for all user types. Why is MPSC introducing a non-resident fee for certain programs? Because operations are currently subsidized 100 per cent by the Whistler tax base. What is the purpose of the non-resident fee? It will help offset the costs that Whistler taxpayers presently absorb on registered programs for non-residents and assist the RMOW in keeping admission and pass fees at Meadow Park Sports Centre affordable for all user types.
