As of this ski/snowboard season, our world-famous mountains are officially all smoke-free!! That’s right – both Seymour and Cypress joined Grouse and Whistler this year in their commitment to providing an 100% smoke-free environment for everyone to enjoy. And that means no e-cigarettes and marijuana either. All of this comes just in time for 2017’s National Non-Smoking Week, which is happening from January 15 to 21. So what are you waiting for? Grab your gear and your friends and get yourselves up one of our mountains to take in the fresh air! 😀
It was a cold and snowy day up on the mountain, but everyone was in good spirits. Ashleigh McIvor, 2010 Olympic Winter Games Gold Medalist in Ski Cross is supporting this campaign and on this day she mingled with people, help spread the word on healthy living and smoke-free mountains, skied some runs with skiers and snowboarders and invited everyone to take photos with her (and her medal!).
