Pique NewsMagazine was founded in 1994. It operated as an independent, locally owned weekly newspaper serving the resort community of Whistler, British Columbia, Canada until July 2013, at which time it was purchased by Glacier Media, which continues to own and operate the paper with locally produced content & editorial staff.

About 15,000 copies are distributed free each Thursday at over 200 distribution points from Vancouver to Mount Currie, including 130 in Whistler itself, including tourist accommodations. It was started by Kathy Barnett, Bob Barnett,[4] Kevin Damaskie and David Rigler.

Pique Newsmagazine also produces the winter and summer FAQ - The Insiders Guide to Whistler.
