Intersection

When: April 19, 8 p.m. – 11 p.m.

Where: Whistler Conference Centre

Tickets: $25, Whistler Activity Centre

What: This film competition has some rules. Teams have seven days to shoot and edit snow sports films that have to clock in between five and seven minutes. On top of that, they must include a skier and a snowboarder with 30 seconds of park footage and another 30 seconds of shots captured in Whistler Blackcomb. The rest of the scenes must be within 100-km of Whistler. Oh yeah, and 75 per cent of the film must be on snow, which might be extra tricky for this third installment of the competition with bare streets below the mountains, but come and see how the teams fare. Up for grabs is $15,000. Runners-up are also awarded $1,000 for all of their hard work.  

Fashion EXPOSED

When: April 20, 3:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Where: Skier's Plaza

Tickets: The event is free

What: Last year, Fashion EXPOSED helped you plan your wardrobe for the end of the world Dec. 21. (A priority that falls slightly behind stocking up on canned goods for your underground survival bunkers.) The world still turns unscathed by an apocalypse — and the need for sweet ski gear and swimwear lives on. This year, the fashion show has been moved to the main stage outdoors for a free event. Check out the catwalk action and stick around for some giveaways.
