World Ski and Snowboard Festival
The annual World Ski and Snowboard Festival (WSSF) is an integral part of the winter season in Whistler. Every year, the festival serves up a schedule of colourful events showcasing its amazing athletes, artists and musicians on the Whistler stage. From outdoor free music concerts, to a showdown of incredible photography and film-making masterpieces, free ride championships, and even the opportunity to watch the fierce women of the roller derby battle it out - this festival has something for everyone.
The International Freeski and Snowboard Association (IFSA) brings us the North American Junior Freeride championships. This event challenges some of the best junior skiers and riders to put their big mountain skills to the ultimate test. Judges will grade the contestants based on style, control, technique, fluidity and line choice. With so much talent in the one place, and these young athletes pushing the boundaries of their sport with passion and unwavering fearlessness, you don't want to miss seeing this event!
Off the mountain, the entertainment continues. The Pro Photographer and Film-maker showdowns are always a crowd favourite and will leave you in awe of each entrant's originality, creative genius and ability to capture some incredible moments with such breathtaking and flawless artistry.
The festival delivers so many other events, including free concerts daily from 2.30-5.30pm, bringing the village alive for 10 days of uninterrupted fun and enjoyment. Come and be a part of what makes Whistler in the winter so unforgettable.
