Kokanee Crankworx as an unofficial test event

” The Monster Energy Slopestyle drew over 20,000 spectators to the base of Whistler Mountain last year and on August 15, Whistler Blackcomb anticipates at least that many again.

Just to make it clear, the festival is “Crankworx”…nothing to do with 80’s Scottish childrens combo “The Krankies”, when you hear people talking about “Kranky” they mean “Crankworx”, not “The Krankies” okay?
