The world's biggest party is coming soon to Whistler for the 21st year. The World Ski and Snowboard Festival happens April 8 - 17th this year, coinciding with the IFSA Junior Freeride North American Championships.

World Ski And Snowboard Festival

Arts, sports and culture collide in the World Ski and Snowboard Festival and this year the OLYMPUS Pro Photographer Showdown, the OLYMPUS 72 Hour Filmmaker Showdown, and Intersection are back for another year of mind-blowing talent both in front of, and behind, the lens.

It's not everyday you fill room after room with the best photographers, filmers, skiers and snowboarders and throw a ten-day party around them.

The bands start early each day and play till late. The skiers and boarders put on show after show, the images flash, the fashion is forward, everyone is partying.

You do not want to miss this event.
