Events & Education
We're excited to announce our TNP Book Club's first book of the year: The Practice: Shipping Creative Work, written by best-selling author Seth Godin.

"The Practice explores creativity, not as a rare gift given to a select few but as a skill anyone can acquire with focused effort and consistency."

Join us and a copy of The Practice for a special price of just $10!

Depending on interest, we will help facilitate an informal post-reading event for all TNP members to socialize and discuss the concepts covered in our book.
For non-skiers purchasing our 'Everything but the lift ticket' package, we have a (free and limited-capacity) snowshoe option sponsored by Urban Impact! This includes transportation from Whistler Village to Whistler Olympic Park and back, lunch and snowshoeing equipment. No experience necessary!
