We are off to Whistler Blackcomb for the TELUS World Ski & Snowboard Festival. The TELUS event is the biggest annual celebration of music, arts, sports & culture on the planet. For 10 days and 10 nights, Whistler turns up the volume with 50 live concerts, major pro ski and snowboard comps, legendary arts events, endless nightlife and the best spring skiing & riding in the world.
Unfortunately, we won’t be here for the full 10 days and nights. We have to head back home on Sunday in order to catch a flight to San Fransisco on Monday. This is my first time at the Ski & Snowboard festival. I’m sure it’ll be fun. If it’s not, I’ll blame Stephen Fung since all this was his idea.
Got To Love The Dot Com Lifestyle
Events like the TELUS World really help to illustrate the dot com lifestyle. None of us are paying to attend this event because we’re invited media. Not only is the event free but cost for hotel and food are tax deductible because we’re here on business.
From what I’ve been hearing about past events, TELUS does a great job taking care of the media. We have a VIP lounge and media room with computers and wireless Internet so we can make updates. Of course there’s the Big Air party as well. I’m sure there are other parties going on that I haven’t found out about yet.
Joining Sarah and I on this Dot Com Whistler trip are Stephen Fung, Michael Kwan, Brice Wong, Leo Chiang and Ed Lau. Since TELUS World is a family event, Sarah recommended I take my parents and Sally along. Nothing like mixing business with pleasure.
Look for videos and photos from the TELUS World Ski & Snowboard Festival real soon. That Flip is going to get a workout!
