      Mudderella Whistler is back! After a hugely successful first year the event is coming back to Canada's premier all-season resort. Here’s the perfect excuse to get out of the gym, conquer a world-class obstacle course, and make it a weekend in the mountains with your best friends.

      At Mudderella, participants work together to conquer 8- to 11-kilometre muddy obstacle courses, designed for women by women. It’s a fun, full-body workout in the outdoors with thousands of like-minded, strong people for a common goal.

      It all goes down on Saturday, September 24 at Blackcomb Mountain in Whistler.

      It kicks off the fall season in Whistler, which is a spectacular time for lovers of the arts. That's because the resort's self-guided ArtWalk offers visitors a chance to view the work of talented local artists in more than 40 locations.

      This is the first autumn featuring Whistler's newest jewel: the world-class 60,000-square-foot Audain Art Museum. Featuring outstanding works assembled by developer and philanthropist Michael Audain and his wife, Yoshiko Karasawa, this haven for lovers of visual arts is at the east end of the Village Stroll. 

      The Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre is another popular destination with its First Nations art and interactive exhibits. What could be better than contemplating the work celebrated artists before the race, then following up with a deluxe meal in one of Whistler's many outstanding dining establishments?
