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.
Great Location, Nicest Staff!!
After reading several reviews on TripAdvisor, I decided to give Crystal Lodge a try. From the get-go, the staff were very helpful and friendly. They helped me set up lift tickets, dinner reservations, and ski rentals for my fiance. We had no trouble checking in, the rooms were comfortable, and the food was excellent. The centralized location of this hotel was perfect for hitting the slopes first thing in the morning, and walking around the village at night. Free wifi and valet for your skiis/snowboards. We never had to use our car (that was parked in their underground secure lot). I look forward to our next trip!
