Whistler Showcase Showdown
The longest running Canadian Snowboard competition is back March 14th and 15th with the 17th annual Showcase Showdown. This year will be bigger and better than ever because for the first time ever, the event will take place over a span of 2 days. Day 1 will consist of the Showcase Show Up aka Slopestyle in the Nintendo Park on Blackcomb Mountain and Day 2 will have the Showcase Show Down aka the Big Air outside the GLC. And just when you think it is all over there will be a Showoff Event aka a rail jam outside the GLC for a Samsung Tablet.
The total prize purse for the 2 day event is over $40,000 in cash and prizes with the top three male snowboarders in the Pro category each day also qualify for the Shred Show during World Ski and Snowboard Fest. This is the perfect warm-up spectator competition to get your eyes, voice and cheering ready for the WSSF.
I always stay at the Crystal Lodge when I travel to Whistler. Service is excellent, the location is perfectly central, and the rooms are well appointed. It's probably the best property you could possibly choose to stay at in terms of location and affordability. I have only stayed here for the past four years when visiting Whistler, by myself, with my boyfriend or with my family, and I will continue to give them my business.
