Every Sunday evening at the base of Whistler Mountain they have the Fire & Ice festival. Besides fire dancers and fireworks, the main event is the stunt show put on by the Whistler ski school. At the conclusion of the show, they put up a huge burning ring and jump through it to the delight of the crowd.
It’s a tough thing to photograph between the huge crowds, the darkness, the distance to the jumpers, and the high speed. I wasn’t in a good spot because frankly, I was in the Garibaldi Lift Company enjoying a cold Kokanee.
