World Ski & Snowboard Festival Day 8 - Apr 19, 2013
|Date:||Friday, April 19, 2013|
The biggest annual gathering of winter sports, music, arts and culture in North America, the World Ski and Snowboard Festival asks you to take heed the festival motto: “Party in April. Sleep in May.” Yup… the Festival is certainly a celebration. But we think if you do want to sleep (a bit) you can quite comfortably at the Aava Whistler Hotel. Get your tickets at wssf.com.
Check out the events for Friday, April 19
The Shred Show
Where: Nintendo Terrain Park | Cost: FREE
The Shred Show is a 3 day event featuring some of the best freestyle & boardercross snowboarders in the world.

State of the Art

State of the Art is a FREE art show held during the entire festival. The art show will be open daily inside the Whistler Conference Centre. Over 50 artists are participating in this year's event more than ever before. Check out the gallery hours, April 12 - 20: 12PM to 6PM, April 21: 10AM to 2PM.
Intersection Film Contest
Where: Whistler Conference Centre | When: 8PM | Cost: $25
Filmmakers are tasked with shooting, editing and producing a 7 minute extreme sports film in 7 days. The only stipulation is there must be a skier and snowboarder in each film, there must be 30 seconds of park footage and WB terrain footage and that it must be shot within 100km of Whistler. Piece of cake right? This contest is always a popular event which might have something to do with the fifteen grand up for grabs for best in show.
