10 Photos Of Whistler Before And During The Wildfire Smoke

Wildfires are a natural part of the ecosystem here in B.C, they are essential for renewal and regrowth. While the fires are not a risk to Whistler, the valley is what’s known as a geological “airbasin”, and this is what is preventing the smoke from dispersing.

Here are 10 sets of Whistler village photographs from before and after the wildfires started.
