The World Ski and Snowboard Festival presents the Association of Freeskiing Professionals (AFP) World Championship - featuring the open Slopestyle and the invitational Big Air.

Samsung Slopestyle
2015 dates tba  | Blackcomb Terrain Park

Slopestyle is a hugely integrated and technically challenging discipline, featuring jumps, rails, and features to challenge and intimidate even the best skiers in the world. With Slopestyle skiing having just successfully debut at the Winter Olympic Games, expect to see slope royalty come out to play. The WSI Slopestyle will be taking place in the Highest Level Park on Blackcomb. The line drops from above the gated entrance and uses the entire left side with a combo of huge jumps and mind-blowing features. The HL right jumps will be open to the public throughout the week with the exception of the days when the Slopestyle event is on. On that day the right line will be open for spectators viewing the event.

Gibbons Life Big Air  
Saturday, April 11 8pm-10pm | Skier's Plaza

The Big Air jump, located at the base of Whistler Mountain, is the ultimate in ski-voyeurism. Not for the faint of heart, this jump will shock, amaze and intimidate, and that’s just the crowd! Immerse yourself in the electric atmosphere of Skier’s Plaza, and watch the mind-boggling aerial talents of the who’s who of the ski world throw down in one of the most impressive displays of raw talent and gutsy trick-wrangling in an attempt to walk away with the big dollars, the coveted title of Big Air Champion and endless bragging rights.

 

2014 Results: 1st Jesper Tjader | 2nd Bobby Brown | 3rd Vincent Gagnier
