Mike Douglas Tells the Deeper Stories

 

“This place has allowed me to seize opportunities and follow paths that I didn’t even know existed.” So says Mike Douglas in this short-film ode to Whistler’s deep-seated snow culture and the latest in Whistler Blackcomb‘s Beyond Series. The freeskiing innovator has parlayed an illustrious career as an athlete into a second-coming as a writer, filmmaker and emcee, giving a voice to the unsung stories of mountain adventures and adventurers. Whether he’s wielding a ski pole or camera lens, Douglas’s pursuit of poetic lines lends itself to a balance of Whistler’s dichotomy between action and solitude.
