WSSF: It’s Over

Our WinterReview hats go off to Whistler Reviewer Magee Walker. Her dedicated daily posts kept us all up to date on one of the most exciting Winter events of the year, the World Ski and Snowboard Festival in Whistler, BC. Magee braved rainy days, long nights, celebrity events, world class ski and ride competitions, local and international artists and non stop parties to bring us up to the minute highlights. Magee’s highlight articles are featured here on WinterReview as well as popular Surf-Ski-Ride ‘zine,  When it comes to awesome events in Whistler, Magee Walker is the official authority. So we say “Thank You Magee”! Thanks for all the wonderful memories, and as they say in Whistler, “Party in April, sleep in May”.  Rest up Magee, rest up.
Here is Magee’s Official WinterReview Day 10 Highlight of WSSF:
Aaaaand it’s officially a wrap on the World Ski and Snowboard Festival! Day 10 brought some dreary skies, which caused delays to the World Skiing Invitational Samsung Slopestyle events– but fear not, the competitions eventually resumed, albeit with fewer runs than initially planned.On the male side, we saw Canadian Evan McEachran (who just turned 17) take first place and the $6,000 grand prize, with American Bobby Brown coming in second (the same ranking he saw on Day 9 at the Big Air competition) and Kiwi big-timer Jossi Wells taking third.

The women also threw it down on the slopestyle course, with three Canadian ladies sweeping the podium. Nikki Blackall took first, Anouk Purnelle-Faniel came in second, and Cassandra Sharpe rounded it up in third place.

Things were a little slower down in the Village, combining the day-after-The-End-Party hangovers with 4/20 celebrations.

Walk A Mile In Her Shoes Whistler

A group of local men swapped out snowboard boots for red high heels for the “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” event, raising funds and awareness for the prevention of violence against women. Over at the conference center, the Black Diamond Betties, Whistler’s Roller Derby team, represented at the “Super BrawlSunday” roller derby showdown..

And now, we catch up on our sleep– at least until the bike park opens in May. Here’s to another great WSSF!
