|Date:||Sunday, April 21, 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.
