A flagship fundraiser for the Spearhead Huts Project, the event premiered in 2013 and was immediately pegged “the most underrated night” at Whistler’s World Ski & Snowboard Festival. The secret is out now and MULTIPLICITY has grown into one of the crowd favourites in the WSSF‘s eclectic arts line-up, and is also considered one of Whistler’s most inspiring events.

“Multiplicity’s recurring themes grow more cohesive every year, bringing the experiences of the speakers to life in an intimate setting,” says Vince Shuley, photojournalist/author at large. “At Multiplicity 2015 I even learned that there’s a few things Will Gadd can’t do.”

MULTIPLCITY’s 2016 line-up features an open book of stories; from Dr. Pushpa Chandra‘s world-record breaking ultramarathon epics to high-flying adventurer Rory Bushfield‘s search for the ultimate slice of freedom. Mountaineer Jimmy Martinello will recount soulful journeys throughout some of the world’s most amazing places while Stand Up Paddleboard legend Norm Hann speaks about his adoption into the Raven clan of the Git’gat Nation. Jasmin Caton invites the audience into the world of high alpine climbing, while whitewater kayaker Benny Marr, freeskier Lynsey Dyer and photographer Bruce Kirkby peel back the layers of what makes life exciting.

Hosted by Mountain Life editor Feet Banks, MULTIPLICITY is a must-see celebration of grassroots mountain and adventure culture.
