Whistler, B.C. – The TELUS World Ski and Snowboard Festival is known for world-class skiing and snowboarding events, the film and photo competitions, fashion, dance and art shows, but especially for the music. This year is no exception. Also known for going out with a bang, TWSSF presents The END Party, an all-night adrenaline pumping dance party, from 10pm until the wee hours of 4am on Saturday April 21st in the Whistler Conference Centre. Featuring house music master, Felix Da Housecat; an Atlanta-based Chicago-bred two-time Grammy Award nominated DJ/Producer/Remixer and innovator of the current electro sound, The END Party will be a mind-blowing finale to the action-packed Festival line-up. Supporting Felix Da Housecat on his quest for Whistler music domination is the master of dynamic variety, West-Coast native Longwalkshortdock. As a “veteran of sound design and electronic music production for well over a decade, Longwalkshortdock's music has stepped into a genre of its own.” According to his bio, Longwalkshortdock’s influences range from “80s video game music, metal and rock music, found-sound and vintage analog synthesis”. In short, his showing at The END Party will be an all out assault on the senses, pushing the limits of even the hardiest of partiers and providing the icing on the one very sweet TWSSF cake.
The pinnacle of professional partiers can be found right here at the TELUS World Ski and Snowboard Festival, in the form of the Monster Energy crew. With their namesake product on hand to keep them going, the crew is out to show everyone how they do it, on and off the snow. The Shred Show presents a line-up of snowboarding events:
BIG HIP: Invitational - TTR World Snowboard Tour 5 star event
April 14 | Skiers Plaza Whistler Village
On April 14th, capacity crowds will witness the world's best snowboarders compete on a huge hip jump in a 2 round elimination and superfinal format for $25,000 in prize money.
April 15 | Blackcomb Terrain Park
With its global debut at the "The Show" in 2011, Boarderstyle sets a new standard for unique snowboarding events where 4 riders race head to head in a traditional boardercross course and are then judged on their freestyle skills on a giant park feature.
SLOPESTYLE: Invitational - TTR World Snowboard Tour 5 star event
April 16 | Blackcomb Terrain Park: $25,000 up for grabs.
