The JP Memorial Is Coming To Whistler

Following its first two years in Riksgränsen, Sweden, the JP Memorial is coming to Whistler.


The third annual event, which will coincide with the 20th anniversary of the Salomon 1080 and take place on April 8th - 11th during the first weekend of the World Ski & Snowboard Festival, is a one of a kind, retrospective, 90s-inspired gathering, open to anyone who appreciates snow.

The JP Memorial will bring like-minded people together for a throwback-style festival that honours the life and legacy of the legendary JP Auclair. This year's installment will return to the roots of freeskiing in Whistler with a series of fun-filled festivities and contests brimming with backflips, mute grabs, 90s outfits, hot dogs and sushi... just how JP would want it.
