Final data from BBM Canada reveals that MTV’s new documentary series PEAK SEASON sits atop the summit, delivering the highest-rated series premiere ever for any program â€“ original or acquired â€“ on MTV in Canada. The one-hour premiere, which aired October 19, ranked #1 (P12-34) in its timeslot against all Canadian and U.S. specialty channels*. Generating an average audience of 122,000 total viewers, a remarkable 89% were younger viewers aged 12-34 (109,000). Snowballing as the show went on, the audience grew an impressive 20% from Episode 1 to Episode 2.

PEAK SEASON offers a behind-the-scenes look into the unique community of Whistler, B.C., following the high drama found in the unique mix of residents that call this world-class tourist hotspot home. As youth struggle to find love, friendship and themselves, a lot happens in this resort playground when the locals and outsiders from around the world co-exist. While every town has stories and secrets, few rival the ones from Whistler as captured on MTV in PEAK SEASON.
