World Ski & Snowboard Festival

The defining celebration of Whistler, the 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 mountain culture.

Easter (April 18 – 20) in Whistler is just a little more special. Amazing snow, long runs, longer days, and beyond skiing and riding you'll find great family friendly activities and events and a pedestrian friendly village filled with award winning restaurants, cool shops, legendary après-ski.
