Watch The Big Picture Documentary Series From Whistler Blackcomb | Part 2: Tech Traps
After 50 years in business, Whistler Blackcomb posed the question, “what does the future hold for us in the next 50 years?” This intriguing question only created more questions like What if our kids stopped playing outside?, Is our thirst for adventure threatening our environment?, Is the pull of the backcountry pushing our limits? and What is the future of ski resorts?
Backcountry access, the future of the ski industry, kids & technology, and climate change are all important issues that need to be addressed. Whistler decided to focus on these questions and issues in a four part documentary video series called, The Big Picture. These are a must watch.

As the line between nature and technology blurs, how can we make sure that our children (and all of us) get the chance to unplug and get outside?
