LIFTing the Community

LIFTing the Community

Thank you for supporting LIFTing the Community!

All chairs have gone to their new home.

This community project, supported by Vail Resort’s Epic Promise, had local artists transform 15 retired Catskinner ski lift chairs into works of art, reflecting the theme of belonging as perceived by 15 community groups that actively contribute to community life. LIFTing the Community was been created to enhance the sense of belonging in Whistler and the Sea to Sky. In our ever-growing and changing community, wellness, connection and a sense of home needs to be fostered, practiced, discussed and experienced by our community.

The reimagined chairs were on display throughout summer 2021 in Whistler Village for people to explore, experience and discover their own spirit of belonging. All the chairs were then auctioned off with the funds going to support the community organizations and their programs that support community belonging and wellbeing.
