The final countdown to the first winter edition of the The Butterfly effect is in full swing, in just 5 days we’ll be enjoying the snow and making new friends in the beautiful Canadian Whistler Blackcomb Resort. Whether you ski, snowboard or just love the cold this is an opportunity you should not miss. During the interment event you will be invited to ski and snowboard clinics, make new friends and be part of the first Aloha ‘Snow’ Downhiller which is sure to be a colorful and fun new BE tradition, make sure that you are apart of this wonderful new addition to the calendar.
Tatiana and her crew will be travelling to Canada from Hawaii and bringing more than a little Aloha spirit with them and are excited to meet new faces and get bundled up and ready for action. While the main event is for one day the crew will be in town for a few days so why not make a weekend of it, you deserve it!
In keeping with the tradition of The Butterfly Effect we have arranged that a portion of proceeds from the day pass sold that day will benefit Howe Sound Women Centre;
“The Howe Sound Women’s Centre Society promotes women’s equality and the empowerment of women and their children. We work from a feminist* perspective. By responding to and working for change, we honour the diversity of women’s lives and meet the evolving needs of women and children throughout the sea to sky corridor.” Learn more about their work>>
Participation is intraoral winter event is free and an all women snowboard and ski event. ‘Butterflies’ (participants) will also receive discounted meal tickets, day pass, and rentals! This is an excellent opportunity to get into the snow with like-minded women in a stress free, fun and safe environment.

“The Butterfly Effect Snow Editions began in Switzerland by a Butterfly participant that loved the ocean and the mountain! She said “we are still water women, just in the mountains! Snow is only frozen water!” The BE Snow Edition events rippled out the following year to Sweden and now to the first time in Whistler, Canada! The community has been amazing and Julia Murray was the first one to say “Yes! Lets do it!” and after months of planning, the event is just over a week away. It is my first time in Whistler and I am so excited to meet the supportive community that welcomed this event with open arms. It is going to be great fun!” Tatiana, The Original Butterfly
“The BE is coming to Whistler for the first time, what makes this resort so special and why should all Butterflies past, present and new book their tickets? Whistler Blackcomb has so much to offer. The terrain available allows everyone to have a good time. There is a great energy on the mountain that is contagious to all riders. With The Butterfly Effect, we will have an amazing group of ladies all out there for one thing, to have a great time. I think the vibe that will be created from this day on the mountain of meeting new people and skiing at their own pace will inspire everyone to be the effect 🙂 Positive, fun and happy day! Amazing to support local women’s charity as well, Howe Sound Women’s Centre” Julia Murray, Olympian, World Champion Medallist & creator of Jules Fuel Breakfast.
Lululemon has been a great supporter of the Butterfly Effect and we caught up with Chelsea Dimin to get her views on why they support the BE and what she personally gets out of the BE events as a rider;
“BE connected me with other women on Maui through SUP. I met my good friend Amber at BE 2012 and have remained great friends ever since. Do It! It’s so much fun to be part of the Butterfly Effect! It’ll get you in the snow and there is sure to be a great party after! Our company has supported the Butterfly Effect for three year. BE and Lululemon both aim to empower health and fitness and support the community through events that encourage people to be active and therefore this is an excellent opportunity for our brand to connect with local riders of all ages and to support a good cause.” Chelsea Dimin, Lululemon
