The most exhilarating event of the year is back in Whistler: the world famous Canadian Cheese Rolling Festival. For the seventh consecutive year, participants from across the globe will dash after an 11-pound wheel of Canadian cheese as it rolls down Blackcomb Mountain. Anyone over the age of 19 is eligible to participate in the downhill race. Contestants are invited to wear costumes for the chance to win a $500 gift voucher to Marketplace IGA. This festival in the Upper Village of Blackcomb is fun for the whole family and includes cheese seminars, a Cheese Market full of Canadian cheese, activities for children, and uphill races.
