The countdown to the Telus World Ski and Snowboard Festival is on, but if you'd rather play than watch then early registration is recommended.
The Orage Masters is by invite only, but there are open qualifiers for the Monster Air competition on April 18, and the superpipe event of the World Skiing Invitational on April 21.
The Grenade Games are a six-day event, and to take part you need to register for one of 100 lottery spots by early Friday, April 10.
Skate & Deploy 2009 is a new skateboard-centric event featured at this year's festival, taking place on Friday, April 17 from noon to 6 p.m. You can register as a solo or as part of a team. The après is the Skate of the ART Party at the ART gallery.
