The Show: A Snowboarding Event
With “The Show” just days away we’re pumped to announce our invite list of riders who will vie for the 10 thousand dollar first prize at the “The Grand Opening” slopestyle event on Saturday, April 16th. The exceptional conditions in Whistler have drawn many pros to town recently so we may have some surprises before Saturday. Our slopestyle course this year will incorporate a massive hip jump for the first time and promises to bring a new dimension to the show. Stay tuned for more news and highlights.

10pm The Sh*t Show – GLC
Living up to its name right off the bat, we had to move the Sh*t Show to Saturday night so that we could bring you Trevor “Trouble” Andrew! Trev has just released his major label debut album “Dreams of a troubled man” and this will be the first time the Trouble gang has hit Whistler to roll out the new material. If that’s not enough for you, we have the legendary Smalltown DJs from Calgary to heat the place up and then keep it going after. Will it be hard to get into? Yes it will. Will it be the show everyone is talking about for the rest of the week? Yes it will be!
10 PM The Late Show
The Conference Center is the only place in Whistler that could host a party this big. The lineup will blow your mind and keep you up late.

12 PM The Mogul Mash
We invented this event a couple years ago and as far as we’re concerned it’s the best way to spend a slushy Spring Sunday in Whistler. Head to head slalom through a mogul course while all your friends cheer, music pumps, and hotdogs fill the grill. If you can’t have fun at this event, you can’t have fun.
8 PM Pub Night
Darts, pool, pub food and beer. A pub is a good place to spend a Sunday night.

11 AM-1 PM Boarderstyle Time Trials | 2 PM Finals
Who says snowboard contests never change? How do you feel about 4 riders, head to head, racing through a couple boardercross berms and then launching a giant booter? All at the same time. This event is judged and timed so the best trick has to be better than the fastest rider. Who’s going to win? Who knows?
Prize Money: 1st place $5,000

11 AM Dustin Craven’s FUN Pipe Jam
Dustin Craven would like to cordially invite you to his version of a halfpipe contest. If you don’t know the inside of Dustin’s brain, then be prepared to experience a unique interpretation of transition riding from one of the true characters in snowboarding. Our “tap out” format keeps it lively, as crappy runs will earn you a trip to the spectator gallery. Last man standing takes home the BIG CHECK
Prize Money: 1st $5,000 | 2nd $2,000 | 3rd $1,000 + announcer cash giveaways $1,500
10 PM The Sideshow – GLC
Everyone likes a theme party and this one is all about the circus sideshow. Snake handlers, tarot readers, magicians and belly dancers will make sure the night gets good and weird. And who better to write the soundtrack than Whistler favourites Vinyl Ritchie, and back from Prague, a man with more Whistler history than most, Czech! It wouldn’t be The Show without The Sideshow.
