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.
A Wonderful Lodge with Beautiful Staff
I loved every minute of our stay here. The location in the village is perfect. The onsite restaurants are lovely. The rooms were beautiful. Ours was a King Suite - with full kitchen, fridge, coffee maker etc. Wish our stay had been longer.
I hope to return to Whistler in the not too distant future and I will not bother looking at any other accommodation options as this place ticked all the boxes.
