It's hard to keep track of all the arts events squeezed into the 10-day World Ski and Snowboard Festival — even for those of us passionate about doing it.

Sure, there are the big-ticket shows like the Olympus Pro Photographer Showdown, which sells out in approximately 14 seconds every year (OK fine, it was seven days this time around), but there's also Fashion EXPOSED, the annual Chairlift Revue and even roller derby.

 To help you navigate the whirlwind schedule,

Pique sorted through the fun to make sure you won't miss any of the arts and culture offerings.

The Beginning

When: April 13, 10 p.m. - 4 a.m.

Where: Whistler Conference Centre

Ticket: $35, Whistler Activity Centre

What: Usually festival-goers have to wait until The End party on the festival's final night to dance into the early morning. This year, organizers decided the WSSF should kick off that way too. They invited ?estlove from The Roots (who might make nightly appearances in your living room as the house band on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon) to DJ, along with Whistler's own Mat the Alien and Vancouver electro-soul group Humans.
