You are invited to a night of New Year’s festivities for all ages, brought to you by the Resort Municipality of Whistler and the Province of British Columbia.

The excitement starts early in Olympic Plaza, with an expanded Family Après where everyone can experience a taste of Canadian outdoor fun. Or come in from the cold, get cozy and discover a variety of activities at the Whistler Conference Centre. Both venues will offer entertainment from noon.

Want to ring in the new year early? A High-Flying Snow Show at the base of Whistler Mountain will begin at 7:30 p.m. with a fireworks show at 8 p.m.

The new year will be officially welcomed with a Special Edition Fire & Ice Show starting at 11:30 p.m., capped off with a colorful, grand finale fireworks show at midnight.
