Following a 15-year hiatus, the world’s steepest ski race is returning to Whistler Blackcomb. The Saudan Coulior Ski Race Extreme, which began way back in 1986, is the stuff of legend and lore, and will be partnering with the World Ski & Snowboard Festival for its 16th edition on April 13th & 14th.

Expect this long dormant but iconic affair to bring out the legends of ski racing, alongside some of Whistler’s most storied big mountains pros and a healthy dose of amateurs who aren’t afraid to send it.

Registration has just opened for the event, and spots will fill up fast, so be sure to visit to secure your spot, and for more information on the World Ski & Snowboard Festival, go to
