Annual contest to find best images inbounds in Whistler in a 72-hour period
The annual Deep Winter Challenge 72-hour photo competition kicked off on Jan. 15, pitting six pro photographers against time, the elements and their own imaginations and shutter skills. Competitors must stay inbounds at the resort and prepare a slideshow montage of six shots for the presentation night on Saturday, Jan. 18, at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler.

The big resort hotels of Whistler make monumental preparations for New Year's Eve. Not only do they have their holiday season guests, who will come in after a day on the slopes looking for fireside après nibbles, drinks, a delicious meal and celebrations with family and friends, they also have to take care of New Year's revellers and hardworking staff.
