“Wonder. Is it a place or a state of mind?
Are there places on the planet where wonder concentrates? Where it gathers, amasses, pools, comes in the night by the dumpload to bury yesterday’s tracks? Or is it just a state of mind, a way of looking, a filter through which you see the world, wherever you may be?
This season, we explore Whistler Blackcomb with a 7-episode video series taking us through the eyes of Whistler’s lore-keepers, the time-lapse artists and the athletes, the kids who grew up here, and the mechanics who keep the place running, in an effort to find out where wonder strikes.
These stories are pinned to the new Wonderground microsite -http://www.whistlerblackcomb.com/wonder to share and to rediscover. These are the places where wonder has struck. Share your secrets. Find your way. Claim your place.
