Earlier this month, The North Face partnered with Whistler Blackcomb for the fourth year in a row to celebrate the return of winter.

The North Face Winter Kickoff at Whistler Blackcomb included a wide range of activities, including a launch party for Futurelight, The North Face’s all-new state of the art breathable-waterproof fabric, product demos of it at the top of Whistler Mountain, and a base camp celebration, which consisted of a product showcase trailer, prize-filled dome pit, photo booth and fire pits, where friends and family could warm up while indulging in hot chocolate and marshmallows.

But the biggest highlight of them all was the Campout Contest, where members of the public could enter for their chance to camp overnight at the top of Whistler Mountain.

In addition to having the opportunity to rub shoulders with some of The North Face's finest athletes, they also woke early to score first tracks, and perhaps best of all, went home with a Mountain 25 Tent and two Inferno -29 Sleeping Bags.

Now that it’s all said and done, The North Face has unveiled a recap video, starring The Blondes, that showcases the good times that were had by all.

Big thanks to The North Face and Whistler Blackcomb for another unforgettable installment of the event, and here’s to another four fun-filled years of it.
