For 10 days and nights, The World Ski & Snowboard Festival returns to Whistler. Come out, hit the slopes and support the mountain culture that is unique to Whistler, BC! The World Ski & Snowboard Festival is a celebration of Whistler’s unique mountain culture through film, photography, fashion shows, free outdoor concerts, and after parties with world-famous DJs, and of course, the best skiing and snowboarding in the world.
For the music lovers, there is a FREE Outdoor Concert Series showcasing a variety of different internationally acclaimed musical acts spanning different genres of music. For fans of sports and photography, the Olympus Pro Photographer Showdown, the leading action sports photography event/contest in the world, is not to be missed!
Filmmaking and sports are combined at Intersection: an event that challenges and pushes filmmakers to the limits. With only seven days to shoot, edit and produce, filmmakers must make a 5-7 minute short film on extreme sports. The final results will be played at the World Ski & Snowboard Festival.
Of course don’t forget to check out the Association of Freeskiing Professionals in various events showcasing their talents, such as Slopestyle, Big Air and Superpipe. For snowboarding events check out The Shred Show.
