Grenade Games coming to Whistler!
03 Feb, 2009
Monster Energy in cooperation with Grenade gloves brings the most unique event in snowboarding, The Grenade Games, to Whistler, BC during the Telus World Ski and Snowboard Festival, April 20-26 2009.
February 3. Whistler, BC. – Monster Energy is proud to announce that it has joined forces with Grenade Gloves to bring the infamous Grenade Games to Whistler, BC during the Telus World Ski and Snowboard Festival this April. Now in their fifth year, the Grenade Games have set themselves apart as the snowboard industries best end-of-season contest and party. Bringing them to Whistler during the WSSF was a natural step to combine two of the biggest spring events into one giant happening.
In the irreverent tradition of the Grenade Games, events will combine the typical snowboard event with an unexpected twist. The Superpipe has evolved into something bigger in better, snowboarders will be challenged to hurl themselves down a mogul field for the first-of-its-kind dual slalom mogul event, and all of it will be capped off in front of thousands of screaming fans Saturday night, with a showcase like nothing the WSSF has ever seen before.
Challenged with revitalizing the snowboarding events of the TWSSF, Nelson Phillips from Monster Energy has called on Olympic snowboard medalist Danny Kass and his crew from Grenade Gloves to bring their already successful event north of the border, and they have jumped on the opportunity.
“We are proud to announce we are bringing “The Grenade Games 5” to Whistler. With the biggest and baddest lineups ever this April, it is sure to be the best. The Grenade Games is a celebration of Snowboarding, music and everything else holy! VIVA la Games! Get ready to Ride…EH!” -Danny Kass
In addition, Danny’s Fuel TV show, “The Adventures of Danny and the Dingo”, with his longtime sidekick Luke “The Dingo” Trembath, will wrap up filming for the season during the event.
Stay tuned for updates.
