Heaven at the Roundhouse


‘Heaven on Earth’ is the theme for this year’s Telus Mobility Winter Classic mountain-top gala, to be held at the Roundhouse Lodge on Saturday, Jan. 27.

The gala dinner, dance and auction is the grand finale of a two day weekend of team skiing, feasting and entertainment designed to raise funds for the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation. Every cent of the net proceeds raised from the weekend goes directly to non-profit charities in the Sea to Sky corridor.

The Heaven on Earth Extravaganza begins with a gondola ride up to the Roundhouse Lodge, featuring a heart-warming ‘spirit’ at mid-station, the heavenly sounds of a live harpist and friendly angels delivering complimentary champagne. A warm and inviting heavenly atmosphere featuring an enchanting tarot card reader and wandering Merlin, amazing grazing buffets, wine and martini bars, specialty coffees and rocking live music will help this event live up to its reputation as THE Whistler Event of the Season.

The Telus Mobility Winter Classic’s famous silent and live auctions will feature more than 150 incredible items including everything from top of the line ski gear to fabulous adventure travel packages. Tickets for the evening are $125, including GST.

Prior to the Saturday night dinner, the Westin Resort & Spa will host a Night of Heavenly Spirits International Wines and Cheese on Friday, Jan. 26. An extensive collection of international fine wines and cheeses will be featured along with the unique 100 gift basket auction and the warm sounds of jazz trio Alma Libra. Tickets are $35, including GST. Tickets to this event sell out early so call today.

The Winter Classic is one of two major annual Whistler-Blackcomb Foundation fund-raising events. Since 1993 the Foundation has provided over $2 million in funding to organizations such as the Whistler Community Services Society, The SAFE, the DARE program, Dandelion Daycare Society, Whistler KIDSPORT, Millenium Place, Pemberton Search & Rescue just to name a few.
