Ace is what you get if you cross Tinkerbell with the Absinthe Fairy. Whistler’s truth-serum – she has run events, been the muse for extreme skiing filmmakers, and calls credibility based on how much heart goes into something. She won the 72 Hour Filmmaker Showdown in 2003 with Weekend Warrior, a hilarious skewering of city boys who assume they can impress a girl with their mountain mojo… withour realizing said girl is likely to be able to kick their ass from here to the bottom of Spanky’s Ladder.
In a Freeskier interview last year, Leslie Anthony said, “Ace is one of a handful of relentlessly spectacularly creative athlete/artists who never let the status quo or the received view of anything get in their way, and have a sense of humour about it.”
This year, Ace as Foxy Moron, joined Team Canada, Mr. Fister and Surgeon at the first Silent Disco in BC, a the GLC, Saturday April 18. A party without speakers, attendees received a free Skullcandy headset at the door with a tuner enabling dancers to plug into their choice of three of the hottest DJ sets to come together during the TELUS World Ski and Snowboard Festival.
