Grenade, a worldwide leader in action sports, and Monster Energy have joined forces to bring the Grenade Games to Canada. Get ready for Grenade Games 5, happening April 20-26, 2009 in Whistler, B.C. during the TELUS World Ski and Snowboard Festival.

“The Grenade Games are a one of a kind experience, the best of what makes snowboarding great,” says Grenade President, Danny Kass. “We've put together a schedule of events that will inspire riders and give fans something new to look at. It's the end of season party you do not want to miss.”

The Grenade Games are known for putting a Grenadian spin on traditional snowboarding events, and this year's contest is no exception. Here's a look at the lineup:
Monday, April 20 -- Registration and Welcome Party Get warmed up for a week of madness.
Tuesday, April 21 -- Poker Run
Contestants collect cards from five poker tables scattered all over Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. Once they make it back to the village, they play their hand. Winners advance to the final round in front of the crowds, with cash, prizes and bragging rights on the line.
Wednesday, April 22 -- Dual Slalom Moguls
Grenade is bringing back that race spirit with a dual slalom, and adding many surprises like moguls with air time and snowballs.

Friday, April 24--Mini Ramp Contest Dust off your skate skills for the panel of world-class pros.
