Whistler, BC – December 16, 2022 – After a two-year hiatus, Fire & Ice is returning to Whistler as a reimagined experience with elevated production, all-new performances, and a narrative focused on the origins of these mountains.

“Fire & Ice creates a vibrant atmosphere for everyone to enjoy, showcasing Whistler’s world-renowned mountain culture and celebrating the land we are lucky to play on,” said Bree Eagles, Events Manager at Tourism Whistler. “We are thrilled to have it return in a reimagined way, and are grateful for the team at Whistler Blackcomb who have worked hard to revive this iconic production. We’re excited for guests and locals to kick off their week early with this fun evening show.”
