Registration open for the Parade of Champions – celebrating local groups.
Everyone in the Sea to Sky Corridor is invited to come out and show their community pride and love of hockey when Rogers Hometown Hockey comes to Whistler this weekend, February 9 and 10. This truly local event is dedicated to family and friends in Whistler, Squamish, Pemberton, Mount Currie and beyond.
“This is a great opportunity for people throughout the Sea to Sky Corridor to celebrate hockey and our love of sport overall,” said Whistler Mayor Jack Crompton. “I am proud to have Rogers Hometown Hockey in Whistler, and I hope to see you there.”
Highlights include the Parade of Champions, celebrating local groups, on Sunday, February 10. Rogers Hometown Hockey’s Ron MacLean and Tara Slone will be hosting during the Sportsnet broadcast of the Toronto Maple Leafs and New York Rangers NHL game live from the Sportsnet Mobile Studio at Whistler Olympic Plaza.
The game will be broadcasted on the big screen at Whistler Olympic Plaza, and everyone is encouraged to come out and cheer on their favourite team.
The festival also features a weekend packed with free hockey-related activities, NHL Alumni appearances, local music, and fun for the whole family.
The Whistler and Squamish minor hockey associations have arranged special games for local teams to be played at the Meadow Park Sports Centre ice arena throughout the weekend.
The Resort Municipality of Whistler is supporting the festival through funding provided by the Province of British Columbia.
