Visit Whistler: Fire and Ice Show

Our last night in Whistler ended with a bang, literally, with the Fire and Ice Show.

During the Winter weekly show, skiers and snowboards jump through a ring of fire while doing cool twists, turns, and tricks.

We arrived at the Skier's Plaza about 30 minutes before the show was to start, and found a spot right at the front, against the barriers.

It was freezing!!!

But we braved the cold, and waited patiently until the show began.

While waiting for the show to start, the athletes did some practice runs, while an emcee gave away prizes for answering trivia questions.  Then finally, 30 minutes after the show was to have started, a few fireworks went off, there was a performance by fire dancers, the ring was lit up in flames, and the skiers and snowboarders did their thing.

Unfortunately, although we had a spot right up front, a fire dancer was positioned right in front of us, blocking our view (and preventing us from taking decent photos/videos) for most of the show.
It was still fun to watch the skiers and snowboarders show off their skills, especially when the ring of fire would erupt in fireworks.

The show ended with a nice fireworks show, and the audience members who stuck around until the very end could give high fives to the athletes.

Because the show takes place at the base of the mountain, it's possible to watch from afar, but if you're willing to brave the cold, get to Skier's Plaza about 30 minutes early to find a good spot.

And be sure not to stand in front of the two mounds on either side, which is where the fire dancers will block your view.
The Fire and Ice show runs during the winter season.  Be sure to check it out if you're in Whistler next winter!
