New Season, New Opportunity for Innovation in the World of Freeskiing

Whistler Black­com­b’s newest “Won­der Reels” episode coin­cides with the launch of the newest chair on Whistler moun­tain, the 6‑person lift in the Har­mo­ny zone. As leg­endary freeski­er Mike Dou­glas gets first chair, he talks about the his­to­ry that has been made  in the Har­mo­ny area.

While locals and old-timers don’t always wel­come change with open arms, this video high­lights an impor­tant fact: change brings inno­va­tion. Increas­ing acces­si­bil­i­ty with­in ski resort areas might mean that the pow­der gets tracked out a lit­tle faster, but it also increas­es acces­si­bil­i­ty, pro­vid­ing the oppor­tu­ni­ty to take the sport to the next level.
