Telus World Ski & Snowboard Festival
17 to 26, 2009 - The
defining celebration of Whistler, the TELUS World Ski and Snowboard
Festival is a 10 day and night showcase of the latest progressions
in the skiing and snowboarding world, where even the arts events
are packed full of adrenaline. Combining Canada’s largest
free outdoor concert series with career-making showdowns of
action sports and lifestyle fashion, photography and film, the
best spring snow conditions, and burn-the-candle nightlife,
it’s a celebration of everything that’s core to
art, in the practice of a sport, in life, every action generates
a reaction. TWSSF’s newest programming for 2009 responds
to an evolving culture, and invites interaction – propulsion,
revolution, a change in momentum, a truthful reaction, the surrender
to impulse… Because when we let editing and suppression
and fear of consequences fall away, we are left riding the fat
tongue of the moment into brilliance.
14 years, the TELUS Festival has become North America’s
largest annual snow sports and music celebration, spawning imitators
around the world, and earning the tag, Mother of All End of
best things in life are still free. Zune Concert Series line-up
promises 10 days of pilgrim-worthy free outdoor concerts, featuring
Ozomatli, Ten Second Epic, The Stills, Metric, and DJ Ztrip.
