JP Auclair will never be forgotten. He touched the lives of so many and inspired countless others who enjoyed his stellar ski career from their DVD (and even video cassette) players. But each year, his friends and family gather to pay tribute to his legacy with good times and shenanigans, both on and off-snow. This year, as a result of the near-worldwide lockdown, the event will be taking place online. It might not be Whistler, where the most recent memorials have taken place, but it's sure to be a good time nonetheless.
Central to proceedings in recent years has been a trivia night, which this year returns as an Instagram live show with 10 special guests from the ski industry. There'll also be an opportunity for the audience to answer questions for a shot at a top prize that you definitely want to get a hold of! The day before (Today) there'll be a live screening of some of JP's greatest video hits as well as huge zoom meeting of friends, pros and hopefully, many of you lot. You can see the full schedule below, but be sure not to miss it, it'll be a good time, a great way to remember a legend and there'll even be some money going towards the Alpine Initiatives Canary Program.
