World Ski & Snowboard Festival

Apr 8 - 17, 2016

The World Ski & Snowboard Festival (WSSF) is not a sprint, it’s a marathon. With a combination of sport, music, and art, there is good reason to celebrate every day and party every night - for ten full days. That's ten days that host Canada's largest free outdoor concert series, pro-athlete ski and snowboard competitions, photography and film events, endless nightlife, and some of the best spring skiing & riding you'll find in North America. It’s a celebration of everything that’s core to mountain culture and we invite you to come join the never-ending celebration.
