The World Ski and Snowboard Fest in Whistler, B.C. pretty much closed out the winter season for the west with one of the best parties in the land. Despite all of the Big Air and halfpipe contests, my favorite part has always been the 72-Filmmaker Showdown. That’s where teams have 72 hours to run around Whistler, shoot and produce a short film.
