Best of 2001 – Best Party

“Pimp and Ho”

bash in Whistler. Sponsored by Extremely Canadian, a rogue ski-teaching operation, the party includes an anything-goes contest for a pair of skis. Lots of competitors strip naked; one guy stuck a microphone stand through his pierced tongue. “It’s basically a classic ’70s orgy,” says Extremely’s cofounder Peter Smart.
