Our 2020 Speaker Series Begins!


We’ll be opening our 2020 Speaker Series with a screening of Pro Patrol, Curtis Petersen’s 1980 short documentary on ski patrol on Whistler Mountain, followed by a talk on changes in ski patrol and mountain safety with Roger McCarthy, Brian Leighton and Bruce Watt.

Doors open at 6:30 pm. Show begins at 7pm. Tickets are $10 ($5 for museum and Club Shred members) and will be available at the Whistler Museum beginning January 17.

  1. As a member of FASP who first worked weekends the second week that Whistler opened in 1966, and later the first ProPatrol leader in 1967, I look forward to reading about the early memories of Roger, Brian and Bruce when they make their presentation on January 29. As I write my memoirs, my Whistler story and that of my Ski Patrol experiences will feature prominently in my yet-to-be-published book entitled ‘Burrowings – the Eclectic Story of Paul’.
    So sorry I can’t be there for the presentation. Good Luck with your endeavours.

    1. Hi Paul,
      We will be sure to publish a follow-up article after the event, as their stories are sure to be very interesting. We’re also looking forward to reading “Burrowings” when it is published!
