Reckon you can beat the ski-jump world record of 251.5 metres set by Anders Fannemel in 2015? Yeah, us neither, but what we can do is hit the slopes in Vancouver for some fun in the snow at one of the world's most popular ski festivals.
The annual Whistler World Ski and Snowboard festival is one of North America’s best winter sports events and is held at the Whistler-Blackcomb ski resort, less than two hours from Vancouver. The resort is comprised of over 200 runs and 8,000 acres of terrain, so there is something to suit all abilities as well as a whole lot of places to explore.
In 2016, the festival was home to ski and snowboard competitions, photography and film events, as well as some of the best nightlife Vancouver has to offer. The bar has been set for 2017, which promises to be even bigger and better.
Admission to the festival itself is free as are many of the events on offer, including the concerts on the main stage in the village and many of the club events throughout the festival. With ten days of some of the best spring-time skiing and snowboarding conditions out there, combined with festival vibes and fantastic après-ski, you'd be crazy to miss this.
Let's just make sure we're trying to break world records and not, you know... ourselves.
- Get there: Take the shuttle from Vancouver to reach Whistler.
- Stay: Check out the alpine homes in the mountains for a true Whistler experience.
