Welcome to the Whistler Search & Rescue Society

On October 23, 2021, Whistler Search and Rescue Society will present our “Virtual Wine’d Up” event and fundraiser. “Wine’d Up” is the only event organized by our society that raises funds to support our volunteer team of Search & Rescue members.

*Tickets go on sale September 7, 2021*

Please click WSAR Virtual Wine’d Up to go to our event page!

The program will feature our volunteers who will share what it means to be a SAR member, and include an engaging look into how WSAR supports our community in search and rescue operations. An online auction of exciting items, generously donated by businesses in the Whistler, Sea to Sky and surrounding area, will be available for bidding on October 15, 2021.

This year we have a limited number Whistler Search & Rescue Team Supporter caps available. All proceeds go to Whistler Search & Rescue.

We hope to “see” you there!
