At Stratton, Foster says the festival contributes to an "amazingly positive" vibe throughout the resort.

"The resort is so lively here, with the yogis, the music, all of the animation that this festival brings to the resort, along with thousands of people who are true outdoor mountain enthusiasts. The energy is amazing," she says.

In Stratton, the festival takes the town over. Hoess says that Whistler has presented "a little bit of a challenge," compared to their other three locations, since there is a vibrant existing community living within and around the festival grounds.

Hoess says hat it will likely "take a few years" to grow the festival to the scale of Crankworx or the World Ski and Snowboard Festival.

Will there be free stuff?

Most of Wanderlust's musical programmings will be free — a bonus for the Whistler branch of the festival, as the music components at the other Wanderlust festivals are ticketed.

There will also be a free outdoor yoga class with celebrated yoga instructor Seane Corn while Michael Franti performs live.
