World Ski and Snowboard Festival — One Month Away!

World -Ski -and -Snowboard -Festival

The 21st Annual World Ski and Snowboard Festival 

It's here! Tickets are on sale now and it's time to start planning for the 21st annual World Ski and Snowboard Festival - where the mantra is "Party in April; Sleep in May".

The festival brings together the best from the ski, snowboard, photography, film and fashion worlds and presents a ten day and night extravaganza of sport, culture and music.

Part of the festival is the longest running free concert series in Canada - bands play every afternoon at free venues along with the other events. You can catch some of your favourite ski and snowboard celebrities on the hill and also competing for prizes each day; there are also fabulous events for film and photography that will leave you hungering for adventure.

The Season Isn't Over - Spring Skiing in Whistler 

March brings some of the best skiing in Whistler - Bluebird days, excellent snow conditions and (often) fewer crowds than earlier in the season. 

And April can have excellent conditions as well. The World Ski and Snowboard Festival happens during a season where it is completely possible to have great snow conditions but also perfect Village conditions, making après a perfectly appropriate afternoon sport.

Multiplicity - Visual Storytelling at its Finest

A crowd favourite during WSSF is Multiplicity, a "TED talk on adrenalin", an inspirational multimedia extravaganza that is as entertaining as it is intriguing.

Slated for Sunday April 10th, the event costs $20 per person and is open to all ages. Prepare to be inspired.

Music for the Masses

The music lineup for WSSF is starting to fill out and you'll find that there are so many bands playing this year that you'll probably have a hard time deciding what to listen to...

...and if that sounds like it might be a problem for you, then check out the Silent Disco on April 15th. The Silent Disco allows you to use headsets provided by the festival to listen to one of three DJs playing at Garfinkles - you listen to the DJ of your choice in one of the most unique dance parties you'll ever attend. As they say, "It's three parties at once for the price of one."

Whatever Your Pleasure: Art, Sport, or Music - WSSF 

April is the month to be in Whistler. The snow is still on the mountains, the Village is sunny and the vibe is high.

Try to fit your vacation plans around the World Ski and Snowboard Festival if you can this year. There is something quite special about this ten day and night festival of all that we love best about winter season.

A great way to say goodbye to the winter and ring in the spring and summer. We hope to see you in April!
