Grenade Games 5 in Whistler…get on it!

28 Feb, 2009


If you haven’t made it to Whistler during the Telus Festival you are truly missing out.  It’s my favorite festival and every year I make the trek out to spend a weekend to a week in Whistler just to be a part of it.  This year the Telus Festival expands and ends with the Grenade Games.  It’s just a really good excuse to come out to Whistler-Blackcomb, ride two amazing mountains and hang out in an amazing town with nightlife, music and so much fun!    

I’m already booked and will be attending both events from the 20th to 27th to check out the mayhem, madness and wicked amount of snowboarding that goes on.
