Condos For Rent During The TELUS World Ski Snowboard
are invited to the biggest annual celebration of music,
arts, sports & culture on the planet. The
defining celebration of Whistler, the TELUS World Ski
and Snowboard Festival is a 10 day and night showcase
of the latest progressions in the skiing and snowboarding
world, where even the arts events are packed full of
adrenaline. Combining Canada’s largest free outdoor
concert series with career-making showdowns of action
sports and lifestyle fashion, photography and film,
the best spring snow conditions, and burn-the-candle
nightlife, it’s a celebration of everything that’s
core to mountain culture.

for 2009 responds to an evolving culture, and invites
interaction – propulsion, revolution, a change
in momentum, a truthful reaction, the surrender to impulse…
Because when we let editing and suppression and fear
of consequences fall away, we are left riding the fat
tongue of the moment into brilliance.
In 14 years, the TELUS Festival has become North America’s
largest annual snow sports and music celebration, spawning
imitators around the world, and earning the tag, Mother
of All End of Season Parties.
