The action-packed event of 10-days and 10-nights features a mix of music, arts and sports featuring Canada's largest free outdoor concert series, pro ski and snowboard competitions, mind-blowing photography and film, plus amazing nightlife.
More than 16 years old, the TELUS World Ski and Snowboard Festival has everything from ski and snowboard competitions, parties, and events like the Filmmaker Showdown, Fashion Show and Pro-Photography competition.
Set in the beautiful location of the ski resort of Whistler Blackcomb, the TELUS World Ski and Snowboard Festival, Canada’s largest free Outdoor Concert Series, showcases ski and snowboard legends aiming high and throwing down, and events to satiate even the hardest partier out there.
This is the Festival where arts, sports, fashion, music and culture gets rolled into one jam-packed, adrenaline filled snowball of a lifetime.
The ten day and night showcase of the future of skiing and snowboarding is the biggest annual gathering of winter sports, music, arts and culture in North America, featuring contests and anti-comps, fashion shows, film screenings, photography showdowns, live painting and even a dog parade.
This ten day and night celebration is “a blast of rock and awe” (Vancouver Sun.) The granddaddy of the spring snow bash, the TELUS World Ski and Snowboard Festival mixes up Canada’s largest free concert series, the best spring snow conditions in the world, and burn-the-candle nightlife, to create a party you can’t afford to miss.
EVENT / FESTIVAL TIPS:
Though there is no admission fee to take part in the event, and though many of the events are free, there are a variety of ticket options for those events that do require tickets. The idea is to plan ahead and make sure you are booked for events you don’t want to miss.
