World Ski & Snowboard Festival
The World Ski and Snowboard (WSSF) returns for it’s 25th year in a digital format that combines arts, music, and sport. The world is invited to join virtually on Friday April 16, 23, and 30th from 6 – 8 PM PST to catch Sky Streams, pick their favourite top sheet design, and cast their votes for films to advance to the finals. Anyone can enter, and everyone can vote.
WSSF Rough Cuts Photo & Video Competition combines photography, video and sport into one team event. New for 2021, there will be two categories, and two rad prizes: local and global. Snowsport crews from around the world are encouraged to create a 2-5 minute film featuring any footage of skiing, snowboarding and/or Snowsports, shot in the last ten years.
Films shot within the Sea to Sky area can compete to win $5,000 CASH, and global participants can compete to win $1000 plus the "Key to WSSF 2022," which includes accommodations, dining gift certificates, Scandinave Spa bath access, tours with Canadian Wilderness Adventures, and more! All films will be reviewed by a panel of local filmmakers and athletes with the top eight local and top four global films advancing to the online film festival where fan vote will determine who moves to the final round.
Artists from around the world have the opportunity to choose their canvas in the Whip Sheet Top Sheet Competition. Whip Sheet Competition, in partnership with Foon Skis and Prior Snowboards, invites artists to submit their original top sheet designs to be voted upon by the world. The winning artists will receive a custom board or pair of skis adorned with their art plus have their designs be made available custom orders on Foon Skis.
Through Sky Streams, Whistler's most iconic locations will host DJ and live music sets which will be broadcast to the world. The full lineup will be announced in the coming weeks.
