Whistler’s Hilarious Snow-Earth-Water-Race is Making a Comeback
To celebrate the Canadian May long weekend, Whistler, British Columbia has announced that they are launching “The Great Outdoors Festival”—or simply, GO Fest. The featured event is the Great Snow-Earth-Water-Race, a revival of the popular team relay race held in the ’80s. GO Fest has unearthed a montage from the 1988 event to show us what a hilarious event this is going to be. Track suits optional.
The modern incarnation of the event will involve ski touring, downhill skiing or snowboarding, downhill mountain biking, running, cross country biking and the infamous canoe race– no guarantees of finishing the race dry.
