Whistler Blackcomb’s Showcase Showdown is back Saturday, February 28 with a new format; the Backyard Slopestyle.

Inspired by the mini-parks in locals’ backyards all over Whistler, the Showdown will blow the scene up with a snowboard slopestyle at the base of Whistler Mountain.
Despite the larger venue and cash prizes on the line, the chill vibe of the backyard throwdown will remain. “This year we wanted to create a super fun snowboard event that was local and grassroots,” says Graham Turner, Showcase Snowboards Buyer. “People can catch all the action from the GLC patio or Skier’s Plaza.”

The top three men and women will feature in Sandbox’s next snowboard film “Shine On,” and $5000 cash and prizes from event sponsors including Nixon headphones are up for grabs.

The Women’s competition will take place from 9am to 11am.

The Men’s competition will start at 11am with Finals starting around 4pm.

Competitor’s check in will take place on Friday, February 27 at the Village Showcase Snowboards from 5-7pm.
