Black Diamond Betties to host first ever home bout
It's been a long road for the sport of roller derby to establish itself in the Sea to Sky Corridor, but this Monday the skates are hitting the track right here in Whistler during the World Ski and Snowboard Festival (WSSF). The bout, aptly titled "Vengeance in the Valley," will once again pit Whistler's Black Diamond Betties against the Squamish Sirens.
Pique breaks down all the festival's artistic offerings so you don't miss a minute
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.
The World Ski and Snowboard Festival is packed with intense competition on the slopes and screens with big money up for grabs. Sure it's exciting, but sometimes it's nice to slide back from the edge of your seat and take in a relaxing evening of, say, story telling.
