As Whistler’s favourite artist, Chili Thom’s art speaks to everything we love about life in the mountains. And as our town’s first board manufacturer, Chris Prior’s spirit permeates all the incredible moments we seek through sport, adventure and friendship. For the last time ever, their talents and spirits are combined on these incredible pieces of rideable art.
After Chili passed away in 2016, Chris began planning this limited edition auction to raise money for Chili’s legacy and daughter. Sadly, he too was taken before the idea was fully realized, but the team at Prior Skis & Snowboards have honoured these two local legends with 15 stunning, limited editions featuring Chili’s art on Chris’s Whistler-tested designs. These truly are pieces of pure local art that can hang on a wall or drop into West Cirque (or both!).
Presenting the Chili Thom/Prior “Angel Edition” auction. The final chance to get Chili’s artwork on one of Chris’ board designs, with all proceeds going to Chili Thom’s family and legacy fund.
Auction closes April 20, 2018. Bid online at here and be sure to check out the display boards hanging at Sushi Village until April 10-13, 2018 where they will relocate to the World Ski & Snowboard Festival Art + Soul exhibit exhibit in the Whistler Conference Centre. Afterwards they will return to Sushi Village until April 21. Auction closes at midnight on April 20, 2019. Shipping (if needed) is not included in the bid price.
