Draw entry answer by an anonymous entrant for the Whistler Museum event "Whistler's Mountain Identity [...]". In response to the question "What would you like to say about the past, present, and future of Whistler's Mountain Identity?" The individual responded:

"We live less than 2 hr. from an international airport in one of the world's most desirable cities. Of course there will (always!) be 30,000+ people on the ski hill. Is it time to look at OCP? Is it unrealistic to presume we can preserve our 'little town'. Too much 'wo[sic]-is-me'. Just get to the hill earlier + use better wax!"

Anonymous [3]

Draw entry answer by an anonymous entrant for the Whistler Museum event "Whistler's Mountain Identity [...]". In response to the question "What would you like to say about the past, present, and future of Whistler's Mountain Identity?" the individual responded:

"Whistler Mountain felt like a big adventure, with big moguls, hiking beyond the T-bars into avalanche zones, skiing in jeans and leather boots. Whistler is now an international destination resort where well-dressed tourists stay in expensive hotels and ski mostly on groomed slopes while the locals attempt to find more room and fresh powder by hiking beyond the lifts. Whistler Mountain in the future will hopefully be managed to preserve a sense of adventure while also provide for the tourists who visit and support operations without overly compromising our human impact on our amazing environment."
